A complement to farm-to-table dining, his fresh take on cocktails is ushering in a new age of drinking: “farm-to-glass”, and with the addition of his foraging and gardening methods, “ground to glass.” Captured in gorgeous full-color photographs, the libations in Eat Your Drink are both aesthetically beautiful and delicious. Eat Your Drink explores cocktails that push boundaries though never-before-imagined flavor combinations. Following Biancaniello’s lead, you too can learn to blend alcohol and food together to create an elevated cocktail experience that requires you to savor, explore and . . . eat your drink.

"In victory, you deserve champagne; in defeat, you need it," stated Napoleon Bonaparte. Inspired by the iconic World War II poster "Keep Calm and Carry On," Keep Calm and Drink Up is a gentle riff on the classic British war campaign. The original slogan inspired a stiff upper lip and optimistic energy, but Keep Calm and Drink Up proves that in the long run, it's a stiff drink and flowing spirits that really motivate the masses. Keep Calm and Drink Up features more than 100 proverbs and mantras from the likes of James Joyce, Ernest Hemingway, Rumi, Dave Barry, and Garrison Keillor, including: * "There comes a time in every woman's life when the only thing that helps is a glass of champagne." --Bette Davis * "I know the truth is in between the first and fortieth drink." --Tori Amos * "Twenty-four hours in a day, twenty-four beers in a case. Coincidence?" --Stephen Wright * "Only Irish coffee provides in a single glass all four essential food groups: alcohol, caffeine, sugar and fat." --Alex Levine
