Honey & Co: The Baking Book

Itamar Srulovich, Sarit Packer
Authors:
Itamar Srulovich, Sarit Packer

Our day is marked by what comes out of the pastry section, and there's always something good on the way: sticky buns full of cherries and pistachios in the morning; a loaf of rich dough rolled with chocolate, hazelnuts and cinnamon that has been proving since dawn and comes out of the oven fresh for elevenses. Lunch is a crisp, crumbly shell of pastry filled with spiced lamb or burnt aubergine, and at teatime there are cheesecakes and fruit cakes, small cakes and massive cookies - so many cakes that it's hard to choose one. (There's no need to worry, whatever you choose will be great!) After dinner there might be poached peaches with roses or something more traditional, sweet and salty Knafe drenched in orange blossom syrup, or maybe just a small piece of fresh marzipan. There's something sweet, something in the oven for everyone, all day long - welcome to Honey & Co.

An Appetite for Violets

Martine Bailey

That's how it is for us servants. No one pays you much heed; mostly you're invisible as furniture. Yet you overhear a conversation here, and add a little gossip there. A writing desk lies open and you cannot help but read a paper. Then you find something, something you should not have found.Irrepressible Biddy Leigh, under-cook at the foreboding Mawton Hall, only wants to marry her childhood sweetheart and set up her own tavern. But when her elderly master marries the young Lady Carinna, Biddy is unwittingly swept up in a world of scheming, secrets and lies.Forced to accompany her new mistress to Italy, Biddy takes with her an old household book of recipes, The Cook's Jewel, in which she records her observations. When she finds herself embroiled in a murderous conspiracy, Biddy realises that the secrets she holds could be the key to her survival - or her downfall . . .

Vanilla Black

Andrew Dargue
Authors:
Andrew Dargue

'The food is creative, beautifully presented and exciting.' Guardian'To us, the fact our cooking is vegetarian is incidental - we just like to eat good food. We love to reinvent classic dishes, create new flavour combinations, source unusual ingredients and occasionally we use a microwave because well, why not?' From the start, Andrew and Donna's rule was, no pasta bake and no vegetable curry. They set up Vanilla Black as a restaurant with a mission - to reinvent expectations about what it means to eat vegetarian food. It's all about the flavour, the first bite that intrigues, the surprising, the unusual, the recipes your friends will want to steal. From Jerusalem artichoke, white wine and thyme pie to a reinvention of classic tomatoes on toast, from Savoy cabbage pudding to broad bean and lemon cheesecake, from smoky baked beans to Marmite new potatoes, and from parsnip cake with Horlicks frosting to cherry Bakewell tart with marzipan custard, this surprising and inventive cookbook will change the way you think about food - and leave you wanting more. Vanilla Black restaurant is co-owned by Andrew Dargue, head chef, and his partner Donna Conroy, who runs front of house. www.vanillablack.co.uk @vanillablack1

Arthur Potts Dawson
Authors:
Arthur Potts Dawson

Combining great food with environmental principles, growing and shopping tips with a taste of the good life, THE ACORN HOUSE COOKBOOK is a must for those who love cooking and care about the planet. British households dump just under a third of all the food they buy - more than 15p of each £1 spent on food is wasted. Furthermore, about one-fifth of our carbon emissions are related to the production, processing, transport and storage of food.Arthur Potts Dawson is on a mission to change our throwaway habits. With his personal guide to seasonal food and how to cook it, award-winning recipes, and chapters on every aspect of simple, sustainable cooking - from how to source locally-grown to kitting out an eco-kitchen (complete with wormery) - the culinary revolution starts here!

Marmalade

Sarah Randell
Authors:
Sarah Randell

From the arrival of the first boxes of bitter Seville oranges at the greengrocer's in January, to the sweet-sharp scent of citrus fruit filling the kitchen as the preserving pan bubbles away on the stove, there is something deeply satisfying about the annual ritual of making marmalade and piling the pantry shelves high with neatly labeled jars of glistening preserves.Once you've perfected the set and balanced the bittersweet flavour in your traditional orange marmalade, you might experiment with different fruits, or try adding alcohol, essences or spices - cardamom, ginger or a hint of bergamot - but after that, what to do with all those pots of citrus perfection? A jar or two to friends and family, another for the breakfast table... and then what? It's time to start using it for baking and cooking. From Christmas ham to rhubarb and marmalade trifle, and from chocolate fondants with bitter orange centres to marmalade marguerites, here is all the inspiration you need to make the most of marmalade right through the year.

Five Quarters

Rachel Roddy
Authors:
Rachel Roddy

Winner of the André Simon Food Book Award 2015'Of course I thought Rome was glorious, but I didn't want to stay. A month, three at most, then I'd take a train back to Sicily to finish the clockwise journey I'd interrupted, before moving even further southwards...'Instead, captivated by the exhilarating life of Testaccio, the wedge-shaped quarter of Rome that centres round the old slaughterhouse and the bustling food market, Rachel decided to rent a flat and live there. Thus began an Italian adventure that's turned into a brand new life. FIVE QUARTERS charts a year in Rachel's small kitchen, shopping, cooking, eating and writing, capturing a uniquely domestic picture of life in this vibrant, charismatic city. Combining Rachel's love of Italian food and cooking with a strong nostalgia for home and memories of growing up in England, this is a cookbook to read in bed as well as to use in the kitchen.

Flavour: A World of Beautiful Food

Vicky Bhogal
Authors:
Vicky Bhogal

Walk into your kitchen and open the cupboard doors, chances are you will find bottles of moss green olive oil nestling alongside dark, salty soy sauce; pungent vanilla essence next to scarlet incendiary pots of chilli powder; flaky dried oregano next to piquant malt vinegar.Borders have been drawn and redrawn throughout history. Perhaps with cooking there are now no borders at all: we can enjoy the tastes of many parts of the world in our own homes very easily, whenever we like.In FLAVOUR: A World of Beautiful Food, Vicky Bhogal takes an array of delicious ingredients and shows how to combine them according to their flavour in simple and imaginative ways, to create exciting new dishes. As she says, 'I am delighted by the fact that, in the little corner of the metropolis I have made my own, I am able to draw from a rich, sprawling heritage of centuries of ingredients traversing their way across the globe. That with a flick of a lid or stir of a spoon, I can add the perfumed whisper of a Persian court, an echo of cool pine forests at twilight or the faint tap of a tango on cobbled alleyways to my daily urban life, while the cars roar by outside.'Containing over 100 mouth-watering and inspiring recipes, including Wafer-sliced Duck Risotto with Spiced Plums and Star Anise, Tiger Prawn and Mandarin Soup, Turkish Delight Chocolate Ice-Cream Drops and White Pears on Black Ice, FLAVOUR is an enchanting book for cooks of all abilities who want to try something truly different.

Chilli Notes

Thomasina Miers
Authors:
Thomasina Miers

'An exhilarating compendium of ways to use chilli in your cooking.' Guardian'There's so much more to chillies than fiery heat and this book proves it with its collection of imaginative recipes.' Good Food"Most people think about chillies in terms of heat and their capacity to blow one's head off. I think about how they can delicately pep up a pile of silky aubergines, perhaps already spiced with cardamom, cinnamon and faint dusting of cumin; how dark, tobacco-flavoured chillies can add deep mysterious tones to molten chocolate, how smoky chillies can add body to slow cooked, unctuous stews and how smoked, sweet peppers can add a note of earthiness to eggs, grilled flatbreads and sautéed greens." Thomasina Miers Chillies can add excitement to the simplest, most frugal ingredients. Chilli Notes is full of recipes that excite and tantalise, comfort and warm. Forget food that is simply there to knock you for six, this book aims to seduce the reader with the power of this humble fruit, even those who profess to loathe the slow burn. Chilli Notes is packed with dishes that you can pull together on a weekday night with ingredients you have lying around. Without long lists of exotic ingredients to stand in your way, Chilli Notes will show you how the chilli can be your exotic bedfellow to add a wonderful, unusual note to your home-cooked family food.
