All aboard for a delicious ride on nine legendary railway journeys! Meals associated with train travel have been an important aspect of railway history for more than a century - from dinners in dining cars to lunches at station buffets to foods purchased from platform vendors. For many travellers, the experience of eating on a railway journey is often a highlight of the trip, a major part of the 'romance of the rails'.Food on the Move focuses on the culinary history of these famous journeys on five continents, from the earliest days of rail travel to the present. The engaging story and vivid illustrations invite readers to discover an array of railway feasts: haute cuisine in the elegant dining carriages of the Orient Express, American steak-and-eggs on the Santa Fe Super Chief, and home-cooked regional foods along the Trans-Siberian tracks. Readers will be tempted to eat their way across Canada's vast interior and Australia's dusty Outback, grab an infamous 'British railway sandwich'to munch on the Flying Scotsman, snack on spicy samosas on the Darjeeling Himalayan 'Toy Train', dine at high speed on Japan's 'Bullet Train', and sip South African wines in a Blue Train luxury lounge car featuring windows of glass fused with gold dust.Written by eight different authors who have travelled on those legendary lines, the book include recipes, from the dining cars and station eateries, taken from historical menus and contributed by contemporary chefs. Food on the Move is a veritable feast!

Sometimes you come across a lofty railway viaduct marooned in the middle of a remote country landscape. Or a crumbling platform from some once-bustling junction buried under the buddleia. If you are lucky you might be able to follow some rusting tracks or explore an old tunnel leading to...well, who knows where? Listen hard. Is that the wind in the undergrowth? Or the spectre of a train from a golden era of the past panting up the embankment? These are the ghosts of The Trains Now Departed. They are the railway lines, and services that ran on them that have disappeared and gone forever. Our lost legacy includes lines prematurely axed, often with gripping and colourful tales of their own, as well as marvels of locomotive engineering sent to the scrapyard and grand termini felled by the wrecker's ball. Then there are the lost delights of train travel, such as haute cuisine in the dining car, the grand expresses with their evocative names, and continental boat trains to romantic, far-off places. The Trains Now Departed tells the stories of some of the most fascinating lost trains of Britain, vividly evoking the glories of a bygone age. In his personal odyssey around Britain, Michael Williams tells the tales of the pioneers who built the tracks and the yarns of the men and women who operated them and the colourful trains that ran on them. It is a journey into the soul of our railways, summoning up a magic which, although mired in time, is fortunately not lost for ever. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael Tudor Barnes.

Le banquier allemand Hermann, de passage à Paris, dîne en compagnie de la haute société. Il raconte à la fin du repas une étrange histoire qu'il a entendue lors de son emprisonnement à Andernach, au moment des guerres napoléoniennes. Il s'agit d'un crime commis en 1799. Deux chirurgiens militaires passent la nuit dans une auberge, partageant leur chambre avec un industriel qui a fui les hostilités et qui avoue, au cours du repas, avoir sur lui une somme considérable en or ainsi que des diamants. L'un des deux chirurgiens, Prosper Magnan, très impressionné par cette révélation, ne peut s'endormir et imagine ce que la mort de l'industriel aurait de facile et de fructueux pour lui. Quand, enfin, il finit par s'endormir, il est réveillé par un remue-ménage : l'industriel a bien été assassiné, qui plus est avec un instrument chirurgical... Prosper Magnan est innocent, mais arrêté, condamné et fusillé. Pendant que le banquier allemand Hermann développe son récit, le narrateur de l'auberge rouge est en train de l'écouter. Or, il est assis en face d'un autre convive qu'il voit se décomposer progressivement au cours du récit d'Hermann : c'est le véritable assassin, qui se trouve à la même table que lui, à son insu... L'auberge rouge est une nouvelle d'Honoré de Balzac parue en 1831. 1. French. Fabienne Prost. http://samples.audible.de/bk/cids/000369/bk_cids_000369_sample.mp3.

Recipes sizzle and intrigue simmers when the Gourmet Detective takes a ride on the 25th anniversary journey of the world-famous Danube Express. The stately railroad starts its route in the Alps and cuts through Austria, Hungary, and the former Yugoslavia before pulling up on the shores of the Black Sea in Romania. Along the way, its passengers - hailing from Europe’s business and social elite - sample the best and most enticing foods those countries’ cuisines have to offer, dishes as unfamiliar and exotic as they are delicious.... From Germany, braised lamb with rutabagas, or roast duck - its skin as crackly as phyllo and the meat juicy and flavorful, served with Savoy cabbage, leeks, carrots, onions, and celery.... From Austria, stuffed breast of veal with buttered chestnuts, served with braised fennel, watercress, and tarragon.... From Hungary, Libermaj, a goose liver pt seasoned with paprika, pimentos, and scallions, blended with hard-boiled eggs and white wine.... From the Balkans, escallopes of veal cooked Dubrovnik style - simmering in onions and mushrooms that have been sauted in butter and seasoned with thyme and bay leaves..... All complemented by some of the finest wines and brandies in the world! The Gourmet Detective is aboard to see how it’s done; he’s been hired by another luxury rail line to sit back, relax, fill his face, and take notes. But nothing is ever easy - or safe - where food, money, and celebrity meet, and this trip is no exception. When a celebrated Hungarian stage actress vanishes from the moving train, the Gourmet Detective finds himself enlisted in a desperate search for her abductor, or killer, and for answers in a bizarrely unfolding mystery that, as usual, centers on humanity’s most consuming passion: food! As the Danube Express chugs into the night, haute cuisine, fine wine, and murder become the main orders of business on this fun and fascinating foray through a world of mouth-watering delights./p 1.

Voici pour la première fois réunie en un seul volume l'oeuvre de dramaturge de Yasmina Reza. Conversations après un enterrement, La Traversée de l'hiver, Art, L'Homme du hasard, ont en quelques années imposé sur la scène française un auteur singulièrement actuel, dont les huis clos - train, hôtel ou living - sont autant de comédies subtiles et décapantes, d'un ton profondément moderne. Les oeuvres de Yasmina Reza sont à présent jouées et applaudies dans de nombreux pays. Yasmina Reza a décidé d'être elle-même : drôle, nerveuse, impertinente, impatiente... Le Monde (France). Art touche à l'universel. The Times (Grande-Bretagne). Un miracle. La plus haute école de la comédie. Die Welt (Allemagne).
