Gastrock
Anita Fábián, Péter Pritz : GASTROCK (ENG)
BOOOK Publishing’s new release, GASTROCK is a three-in-one recipe book. It serves as a cookbook, an unorthodox rock encyclopedia and a graphic novel. Presented in a light and entertaining fashion, GASTROCK offers 30 original recipes, which were created with 27 internationally acclaimed rock bands and three very popular Hungarian bands in mind. Through various associations our writers came up with the dishes they thought would be the most suitable and representative of the bands in question. They picked an album by each featured band and outlined each step of preparation in the order of the track listings. As a result, we can cook while listening to great music and be done by the time the record is over. GASTROCK is illustrated with spectacular photos and artwork, which convey the essence of the bands and recordings featured in this book. This unconventional rock ‘n’ roll cookbook is structured much like a restaurant menu and contains a number of unusual dishes. For instance Iggy Pop’s Oriental DOGragout with Rice, AC/DC’s Black Snacks and Faith No More’s Flying Chicken, but the authors – Anita Fábián, who has cooked for the likes of Prince, Michael Jackson, Jan Garbarek and members of Guns N’ Roses; and Péter Pritz, journalist, translator and music editor – also thought it important to present starters, soups, main courses, vegetarian dishes and desserts that are not only creative and inventive but relatively easy to make. Let’s cook and roll! Full price: 22 EUR - 25 USD ISBN: 978-615-5417-47-4 Year of publication: 2018 Cover: hardcover Number of Pages: 199 Size (mm): 210x250 Weight (g):  900 Language: english

Magunam Maha: You and enlightenment
Magunam Maha: You and enlightenment
“You and the Enlightenment” („Te és a Megvilágosodás”), the first part of the Urban Yogi book series by Hungarian enlightenment-teacher Maha Magunam is guide to enlightenment, written in plain language with modern perspective. This book fills a gap in the topic for those who are interested in finding themselves despite the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The book – answering important inner issues – is divided into four chapters and a glossary. Teachings, based on ancient tradition, are delivered to the reader through a wise and witty dialogue of master and disciple, spiced with realistic examples. The book contains an in-depth interview with the author and dozens of illustrations. The author, dr. László Janits Magunam or Maha Magunam, has been educated in Buddhist teachings and has devoted his life to spiritual self-realization since his adolescence.

Together with his wife, Virág, who is also a Tibetologist and teacher, they created the Urban Yogi lifestyle that has thousands of disciples, and its aim is to let anyone experience liberation that comes with inner-harmony without having to go on a retreat.

Gyula Gábor Tóth: The lost witch
Gyula Gábor Tóth: The lost witch
Are you curious about the story of the lost witch? If you ask the shepherds, they just pull their hats down over their eyes and mumble something under their mustache, or spit towards the east to prevent a curse on their flocks. Of course, the women are more talkative: “it’s a tragedy!”, cries one. “Far from it - a comedy!”, opposes another. The eyes of the young girls meet and they sigh deeply, “what a love story”, they say with an all-knowing tone, glancing at the well where a young herdboy is just leaving. The sound of the youngest ones is harder to understand: “adventure!”, “action!”, “Pista the hero” (“no, Liza the hero”, the girls say), “everything started with a curse, and the fire, and the water, then lots of magic”. The teacher calms them down, and answers with: “I have no idea”. This book is the true story of the lost witch. If you don’t believe it, find out for yourself.

Bereznay Tamás süteményes könyv - 2. kiadás
Tamás Bereznay: Cake Book
A good cake is similar to a good book - they are sold out in the blink of an eye There are several reasons why a book has a second edition: it was a great success, the shops ran out of copies or authors want to brush up the content with actual information. All three reasons contributed to the comeback of the Cake Book: the book won the Best Chef Book in Hungary 2010 prize of the Gourmand World Cookbook competition and almost all copies has been sold out. The new edition has fresh design, re-edited content and an additional chapter which contains cake recipes made of chestnut.
