In this special issue:Fast Company´s report on the 50 most innovative companies.An artificial heart and its lightweight power drive. A better airline for Brazil. Chocolate from Madagascar and a soccer shirt made of plastic water bottles. A fashion leader escaping its pattern, a smelter, and that little coupon startup in Chicago that´s suddenly worth billions. All this from one simple word: innovation. The 50 companies on our 2011 list have chosen a unique path. Today´s business landscape is littered with heritage companies whose CEOs battle their industry´s broken model with inertia, layoffs, lawsuits -- anything that squeezes pennies and delays the inevitable. How many of these companies will be dominant in 2025? Few. That world will be ruled by the kinds of companies on this list. They´re nondogmatic, willing to scrap conventional ideas. (A mere 30-second TV ad? Let´s do 200 online videos in two days, say the creatives at Wieden and Kennedy.) They´re willing to fail. (Google´s search team runs up to 200 experiments at any one time.) They know what they stand for. (By making home-viewing as easy as possible, Netflix walloped Blockbuster, which thought its business had something to do with stores.) 1. Language: English.

The New York Times bestselling, IACP award-winning cookbook (and a Cooking Light Top 100 Cookbook of the Last 25 Years) from the celebrated food blogger and founder of smittenkitchen.com. Deb Perelman loves to cook. She isn´t a chef or a restaurant owner-she´s never even waitressed. Cooking in her tiny Manhattan kitchen was, at least at first, for special occasions-and, too often, an unnecessarily daunting venture. Deb found herself overwhelmed by the number of recipes available to her. Have you ever searched for the perfect birthday cake on Google? You´ll get more than three million results. Where do you start? What if you pick a recipe that´s downright bad? With the same warmth, candor, and can-do spirit her award-winning blog, Smitten Kitchen, is known for, here Deb presents more than 100 recipes-almost entirely new, plus a few favorites from the site-that guarantee delicious results every time. Gorgeously illustrated with hundreds of her beautiful color photographs, The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook is all about approachable, uncompromised home cooking. Here you´ll find better uses for your favorite vegetables: asparagus blanketing a pizza; ratatouille dressing up a sandwich; cauliflower masquerading as pesto. These are recipes you´ll bookmark and use so often they become your own, recipes you´ll slip to a friend who wants to impress her new in-laws, and recipes with simple ingredients that yield amazing results in a minimum amount of time. Deb tells you her favorite summer cocktail; how to lose your fear of cooking for a crowd; and the essential items you need for your own kitchen. From salads and slaws that make perfect side dishes (or a full meal) to savory tarts and galettes; from Mushroom Bourguignon to Chocolate Hazelnut Crepe Cake, Deb knows just the thing for a Tuesday night, or your most special occasion.
