I just learned today (as I had a meeting with the marketing people at Chelsea Green) that Cider Planet is now at the pre-order stage!
It should be available on September 23.
At this moment, I am doing the revision of the proofs, then page layout will be finalized and out to the printer...

In the US, it is already on the websites of Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Bookshop.org
And in Canada, Amazon.ca, Indigo.ca

I must say people at Chelsea Green are pretty good at writing an inviting text (who could resist to that):

From internationally-acclaimed author and fermented beverage expert Claude Jolicoeur comes a globe-trotting, full-color cultural history and guide celebrating the methods, terroir, and traditions of world-class cider.

In Cider Planet, Claude Jolicoeur--a longtime, passionate cider maker and author of the international bestseller New Cider Maker's Handbook--takes readers with him to the world's greatest cider regions, providing an expertly guided tour laced with his deep understanding and appreciation for how this "Prince of Beverages" is made.

Inside Cider Planet you'll find:

Descriptions of global orchard practices
Specific apple varieties used in different countries and regions
Detailed histories of the world's oldest ciderlands
Profiles of different cider styles and rituals
Tips and tricks from some of the most knowledgeable cider producers

Cider, long perceived as a European country drink, is now truly a worldwide culinary delight. Jolicoeur talks about new and emergent regions that have contributed to this growing appreciation, and how they are building upon the old traditions while creating their own new ones. He explores, for example, the most revered areas for making perry, a delightful but little-known drink that, like cider, is starting to gain fans young and old. And he even transports readers to Kazakhstan in central Asia, famous as the "birthplace of the domestic apple."

Real cider, craft cider, farm cider, artisan cider: Whatever you wish to call it, at its best, cider should be enjoyed like a fine wine, with all of the sophistication but less of the pretentiousness. Just as there are many volumes devoted to the great wine regions of the world, we now need a "cider appreciation" manual to fully understand and delve into the rich culture of cider and perry. Cider Planet is that book, and Claude Jolicoeur is our experienced and enthusiastic guide. For the traveler or foodie, this book transports the reader around the world with wonderful stories and insight that will leave you thirsty for a fresh glass of fermented fruit.
