Sea Salt and Honey is a delightful ode to the rustic lifestyle of Nicholas Tsakiris’ birthplace.
Author: Nicholas Tsakiris
An enchanting celebration of Greek provincial life—its charming culture and sublime food—captured in 100 delectable recipes and captivating stories from the Greek-American Tsakiris family, accompanied by more than 100 visually stunning full-color photographs by James Beard award-winning photographer Romas Foord. Sea Salt and Honey is a delightful ode to the rustic lifestyle of Nicholas Tsakiris’ birthplace. Though America has been his adopted country for the last thirty years, he felt himself irresistibly drawn back to his homeland after his two daughters, Olivia and Chloe, were grown. Over the years, Olivia and Chloe too felt the desire to reconnect to their roots. The family now live almost full time on the Mani coast, in a little house nestled in the Taygetos foothills close to Kardamili—a charming village of roughly 450 residents, where a walk across town takes five minutes. With the abundance of nature and boundless possibilities of ingredients around them, Nicholas, Olivia, and Chloe indulge in their favorite pastime—cooking delicious meals together while sharing family stories. They eventually began to grow their own food, working together to plant and harvest each season’s bounty in their garden. Like many Greeks, they eat seasonally, and most of the recipes they prepare are inspired by the food grown in their own backyard. In an age when retaining your roots, mindful eating, and work-life balance are becoming increasingly rare, Sea Salt and Honey is a reminder of the importance of tradition and a celebration of personal history that combines delicious, healthy recipes with a call to a simpler way of life. Nicholas, Olivia, and Chloe invite you to take a seat at their table, to enjoy the scenic vista of the Taygetos mountain range and the Messinian gulf, as you indulge in hearty, wholesome, and easy-to-make dishes such as: Smoked Trout and Wilted Lettuce Garden Salad Savory Greek Yogurt Bowls Winter Garden Pasta with Purple Cabbage, Broccoli, Cauliflower, Sage, and Dried Chiles Grilled Octopus Marinated in Red Wine Vinegar, Honey, and Oregano Lamb Slow-Cooked in the Gastra (Clay Pot) Sea Salt and Honey Chocolate Chunk Cookies James Beard award-winning photographer Romas Ford’s incredible images capture the sense of community and Greek culture that infuse and inspire these dishes. Filled with stories, adventures, memories, and beautiful photographs, Sea Salt and Honey pays tribute to authentic and Greek-inspired cuisine, and is a culinary celebration of a place where the love of the land, of nature, and of a simple but rich life makes you feel at home.
He was America.” In this outstanding collection of seventy-seven poems, Sandburg eloquently celebrates the themes that engaged him as a poet for more than half a century of writing—life, love, and death.
Author: Carl Sandburg
Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
A collection from the Pulitzer Prize–winning American poet with “a sharp lively wit and a tender approach to the human condition” (The Philadelphia Inquirer). Though he was also renowned as a biographer of Abraham Lincoln, Carl Sandburg was first and foremost a poet—upon his death, President Lyndon B. Johnson said “Carl Sandburg was more than the voice of America, more than the poet of its strength and genius. He was America.” In this outstanding collection of seventy-seven poems, Sandburg eloquently celebrates the themes that engaged him as a poet for more than half a century of writing—life, love, and death. Strongly lyrical, these intensely honest poems testify to human courage, frailty, and tenderness and to the enduring wonders of nature. “A poetic genius whose creative power has in no way lessened with the passing years.” —Chicago Tribune
Fittingly then, Kala Krishnan Ramesh's contemporary bhakti poems speak in the voices of many poets. We don't always know who they are, but as the poems unfold, one voice emerges above those of the rest.
Author: Kala Krishnan Ramesh
Murugan - the younger son of Shiva and Parvathy, the younger brother of Ganesha - is a tricky and temperamental god, but he is beloved of the poets. Fittingly then, Kala Krishnan Ramesh's contemporary bhakti poems speak in the voices of many poets. We don't always know who they are, but as the poems unfold, one voice emerges above those of the rest. She is the god's favourite poet, a woman whose whole life revolves around him. 'Kala Krishnan Ramesh offers a breathtakingly brazen collection of contemporary bhakti poems to the ancient god of the Tamils, Muruga, capricious "patron of poets". Adopting the argot of sacred passion in a fervent colloquial idiom, she rhapsodises hymns that are as adventurous as they are formally rigorous, intimate and exuberant in the elastic inscape of devotion. The enchantment of creativity and its sometimes twin, religious fervour, is rarely better sung than in this aching arc of ire and intoxication, despair and defiance that wrests tropes of weight and overheard whisper from Sangam poetics in voices single and choric.' -Priya Sarukkai Chhabria 'In their depth of feeling and poetic brilliance, these modern bhakti poems can only be compared to the best ever sung by poet-saints of yore. Kala Ramesh is an astonishingly creative poet who recreates a poetic tradition that is effortlessly infused with modern sensibility.' -Sudhir Kakar

Author: Lizzie Lowrie
An honest look at the messiness of life when you are forced to live the life you didn't imagine. Salt Water and Honey is a story about pregnancy loss and childlessness that doesn't end with a baby.

Lizzie has experienced the pain of multiple miscarriages and writes honestly about her struggle and fight to find God in her suffering. She is honest about the low points and the pain, but she also shares her journey as she comes to understand that her true identity is not defined by motherhood but by being a child of God. Lizzie's story provides a safe space to remind people that they're not alone, it's okay to grieve and their story matters. Covering many universal truths such as unanswered prayer, grief, disappointment, vulnerability and faith in crisis this book is actually for anyone who has lost their dream and is struggling to understand that their story still has meaning and purpose even when life looks nothing like they hoped it would.
