Le Audioricette sono un nuovo modo per scoprire e approfondire la preparazione, le caratteristiche e la storia dei tuoi piatti preferiti. Ogni audiobook contiene la spiegazione passo passo di cinque semplici e gustose ricette per stuzzicare la tua fantasia in cucina, e una ricca e approfondita sezione sulla storia e le caratteristiche dei piatti. Con la diffusione della cucina orientale, nel nostro Paese si è cominciato a sentire parlare sempre di più di utensili legati proprio a questi tipi di gastronomie etniche. La stella più brillante è il wok. Questa grande e pesante padella ha visto le luci della ribalta grazie alla sua duttilità e alla capacità di cuocere i cibi con una precisione e una diffusione del calore senza pari, oltre che con minime quantità di condimento. Grazie all´influenza culturale delle gastronomie orientali, il wok è arrivato non solo nei ristoranti ma anche sulle nostre tavole e nelle nostre cucine. Il wok è una speciale padella utilizzata nella cucina cinese. Ha forma semisferica e in origine era dotata di due manici corti; ora la si trova più facilmente con un solo manico lungo, ma la presenza di un secondo manico la rende più maneggevole. Anche se in molti Paesi orientali, e in Cina soprattutto, il wok è la dotazione standard di tutti i cuochi più o meno professionisti, nel resto del mondo è meno diffuso. Imparare a cucinare con il wok, sfruttandone le particolari caratteristiche di cottura del cibo, può essere un´occasione per mettersi alla prova ai fornelli con qualcosa di nuovo che darà grandi risultati, o anche semplicemente per stupire i propri ospiti con piatti di gran classe, colorati e semplici da preparare. In questo nostro breve viaggio nel mondo del wok, ne esploreremo la cultura e la storia, le tecniche principali e la sua versatilità in cucina. Concluderemo quindi con una serie di cinque ricette create appositamente per la cottura con il wok. 1. Italian.

Playing cops was just a game until the bullets were real.The gravy train hasn’t stopped in the hollers of western Virginia for more than 30 years when Stony Shelor starts his junior year at Jubal Early High. Class divides and racism are still the hardened norms as the Eisenhower years draw to a close. Violence lies coiled under the calm surface, ready to strike at any time.On the high school front, the cool boys are taking their wardrobe and music cues from hip TV private dick Peter Gunn, and Dobie Gillis is teaching them how to hit on pretty girls. There’s no help for Stony on the horizon, though. Mary Lou Martin is the girl of his dreams, and she hardly knows Stony exists. In addition, Stony can’t seem to stay out of juvenile court and just may end up in reform school. A long, difficult year stretches out in front of him when a new boy arrives in town. Likable bullshit artist Jack Newcomb dresses like Peter Gunn, uses moves like Dobie Gillis, and plays pretty good jazz clarinet.Jack draws Stony into his fantasy of being a private detective, and the two boys start hanging around the county sheriff’s office. Accepted as sources of amusement and free labor, the aspiring gumshoes land their first case after the district attorney’s house is burglarized. Later, the boys hatch an ingenious scheme to help the deputies raid an illegal speakeasy and brothel. All the intrigue feels like fun and games to Jack and Stony until a gunfight with a hillbilly boy almost gets them killed. The stakes rise even higher when the boys find themselves facing off against the Ku Klux Klan. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Christopher Carley.

Judy Sheehan´s debut young adult novel is a terrifically fun listen that also tackles some of life´s - and the afterlife´s - big questions. Last night Sarah was a bridesmaid, dressed in a hideous mango chiffon. Today she wakes up dead at the Mall of America. This is where the universe sends teenagers who were murdered. In fact most malls are haunted. The living don´t notice it, what with all the bright lights, sales, and free samples. The dead just pass through them while finishing up the business of their former lives. As Sarah and her fellow dead teenagers work together to move on, she hits just a few complications: Sarah discovers an uncanny ability to haunt the living, and while she has no idea who killed her, she knows the one person she loves back on Earth is in grave (yes, grave) danger. Meanwhile, she´s falling madly and badly for Nick, who died heroically saving his girlfriend. Sarah can´t let these distractions put her at risk of being doomed to relive her final moments again and again. But how can she stop her killer from killing again? 1. Language: English.

Donny Herbert was a hardworking Buffalo city firefighter who, in December 1995, was searching the attic of a burning house when the snow-laden roof collapsed. For six minutes he was without oxygen. A beloved husband, a father of four boys, Donny fell into a vegetative state that lasted nearly a decade. He was, for all practical purposes, gone - until one day, in April 2005, when he woke up and spoke almost nonstop to his family and loved ones for nearly 18 hours. Here is the story of this remarkable moment, which was covered by the press worldwide. For his wife, Linda, it was a miracle. For his doctors and nurses, it was a medical mystery. For his sons, including his youngest, with whom he had never before had a conversation, it was a blessing. After his remarkable day, Donny Herbert fell into a deep sleep and never experienced a comparable moment of clarity. He died in February 2006 from pneumonia. Written by Linda´s cousin, The Day Donny Herbert Woke Up makes the listener wonder: What brought Donny back? More than anything, Linda credits Donny himself, a man with the strength to will himself back into his family´s lives, if only to remind them one last time of how very much he loved them. This is as much Linda´s story, one of perseverance and faith, as it is of a remarkable husband, father, and firefighter. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kimberly Farr.
