This book traces the history of food and famine in Ireland from the sixteenth to the early twentieth century. It looks at what people ate and drank, and how this changed over time. The authors explore the economic and social forces which lay behind these changes as well as the more personal motives of taste, preference, and acceptability. They analyze the reasons why the potato became a major component of the diet for so many people during the eighteenth century as well as the diets of the middling and upper classes. This is not, however, simply a social history of food but it is a nutritional one as well, and the authors go on to explore the connection between eating, health, and disease. They look at the relationship between the supply of food and the growth of the population and then finally, and unavoidably in any history of the Irish and food, the issue of famine, examining first its likelihood and then its dreadful reality when it actually occurred.

In Feast and Famine of a Culinary Vagabond, Wolfgang Lord Erbe cooks up an engaging memoir of tragedy, triumph, and the delectable life of a chef and restaurant owner. As a child, he escapes the horrors of the Russian Army during World War II, and at sixteen, he learns the culinary profession as a way to survive and avoid starvation. Trained as a European chef, as well as in restaurant service, hotel management and catering, he begins to think a better life is possible. It is only when he immigrates to the United States that his career begins to take off. A hotelman and chef-restaurateur, he meets and serves such luminaries as the Rockefellers, the Rothchilds, Pope Paul, and Henry Luce. Invited to the White House by the president's personal chef, he seems to be at the top of his game. But Erbe writes movingly of how haunted he is by his past, and when he starts to become lost in memories of personal tragedies, his life begins to split at the seams. Preoccupied by his unfilled dreams, he begins to self-destruct until an unexpected turn in his life helps him to regain his footing. As Erbe pulls himself up, he begins to travel internationally as a chef, visiting Russia and working in Siberia for Alaskan Airlines. But his future holds keys to his past, and Erbe visits the POW camp where his father suffered, and the city of Moscow where his grandparents lived until they fled the Russian Revolution. In confronting his past, he comes to understand it-and himself.This is a stunning story of perseverance and courage in the face of almost overwhelming odds. Beautifully written and warmly told, Feast and Famine of a Culinary Vagabond offers both epic adventure and an insider's look into the life of a chef.

The saga of three generations of the Wahba family, a wealthy Coptic landowning family in Egypt.Amin Wahba started as a small sugarcane planter. When at the turn of the 20th century the sugar industry had fallen on hard times he bought the lands adjacent to his land at bargain prices, eventually becoming the biggest sugarcane planter in Egypt.In 1914 his only son Farid was removed from his primary school in Luxor and sent as a boarding pupil to the Victoria College in Alexandria. In January 1921 Amin Wahba decided to retire and lease his land to the Sugar Refinery Company. He was fifty years old and had made a fortune during the war. He moved to Cairo. Two years after his retirement, Amin Wahba started to dabble in politics and eventually in 1923 he became a senator. That same year he was awarded the title of Pasha. Once settled in his new mansion Amin Pasha started to lead a double life. To all appearances he was a philanthropist, a man respected by all, not only for his wealth and connections, but also for his upright character. He was a prominent member of the Coptic Church devoting time and money to charitable causes. But there was a darker side to his life that few people were aware of. He led a secret life of debauchery which was facilitated by his private secretary.Upon his return from Oxford, his son Farid worked for the law office handling his father's business. He married Jeannette the daughter of a prominent bourgeois family. Upon the death of his father in 1939 Farid was award the tile of Pasha; he dabbles in politics and reaches the peak of his career in 1950 when he becomes a senator. And then the July 1952 Revolution took place and everything changed. Farid lost his title, his seat in the Senate, and most of his lands were confiscated by the government. He saw his fortune and influence slowly dwindling.His oldest son Boulos was among the thousands who volunteered to fight the invading Anglo-French forces during the 1856 Suez War and was killed in action. His daughter Mary graduated from university and continued her studies in Bryn Mawr in the US eventually marrying an American.The fortunes of the Wahbas take a turn for the worse in he sixties and reach their lowest ebb after the disastrous 1967 Six-Day War when Joseph, Farid's younger son, was drafted and eventually wounded in the Suez Canal front. And then one year later the apparition of the Virgin Mary in the Church of Zeitun provides solace to a nation mourning the military debacle the country went through.

These daily affirmations are for those of us who have problems with food--either because we eat too much or because we eat too little. Unlike those who have problems with drugs or alcohol, we cannot just cut food out of our lives, instead we must learn to live in harmony with it and with the body that nature has given us. As we live day by day we learn, with the help of these affirmations, to accept ourselves and our problems with food. We reach for the serenity of knowing that we do not have to measure up to others' expectations of weight, height or body type. In doing so we can free ourselves from the hold that food and eating have had on us. These daily affirmations are written to encourage you to follow your own path toward the many possibilities that are open to you. They have been written after years of experience working with those who have problems with compulsive eating, in the hope that what has worked for them will also work for you.

Clare struggled for 40 years with an obsessive food disorder with bulimia. During this time, she simultaneously lived both a traditional life, wherein she hid her addiction, and a profoundly spiritual life, where she developed her Divine nature.Clare's new #1 Amazon rated book Feast & Famine: Healing Addiction with Grace challenges the idea that our addiction epidemic is a substance or vice problem, proposing that it is, in reality, borne of a chronic suffering problem. To perpetuate our constant pain, we choose our poison, such as alcohol, drugs, food, social media, to name a few.Feast & Famine is a story of both addiction and recovery. It examines both bulimia and addiction in general. The book has a strong focus on the silent epidemic of food addiction for women and self-persecution by spiritual seekers.As a gifted spiritual author, Clare's guide for this book is Sophia, the Divine Universal Mother. Sophia's philosophy is that the primary addiction problem on the planet is an addiction to suffering and that by following Sophia's Divine Healing path as outlined in Clare's book, one can move from addiction to recovery.Robin Clare is available to be a guest on online forums, podcasts, and Zoom calls, as well as to speak to groups, associations, and to be a featured guest on panels.
