bargeschichten, daniela kählin

Dieses Buch ist eine Reise von der Kälte in die Hitze, vom Schnee am Nordkap bis zu den Stränden am Mittelmeer. Mit Geschichten aus düsteren Kneipen in Finnland, nostalgischen Kaffeehäusern in Wien, vor Freunde triefenden Bars in Spanien und verschlafenen Pubs in Gibraltar. In diesen Mikrokosmos begegnen sich die Hauptfiguren, mal voller Lebensfreude, mal im Kampf gegen die Einsamkeit, aber immer angetrieben von den grossen und kleinen Fragen des Lebens. Jede der Geschichten ist wahr – oder könnte es zumindest sein.

mixing cosmopolitans, daniel staub

Daniel Staub, the creative mind behind several bars and speakeasies in Zurich and author of the bartending blog The Pouring Tales is on a mission to find and portray the most innovative and passionate bartenders from all across the globe—the true artists of modern mixology. Over the past few years, he has visited countless bars all around the world and formed friendships with many of the talented individuals who work there. Resulting from his extensive travels and research into the global nightlife scene, Mixing Cosmopolitans is a travel diary, a bar guide, and a recipe book all in one. Yet in the spotlight, first and foremost, are the people who breathe new, often unconventional, life into the art of hospitality and who in this book share their own personal path to finding their passion in bartending. Presenting twenty-one personal, beautifully illustrated portraits of bartenders and their bars along with the recipes for their signature cocktails, Mixing Cosmopolitans offers a compelling look into a constantly evolving scene and art form.
