This is a content-rich, stylishly-designed book that should find its way into every discerning kitchen.

'This shop is now an institution... one all too easily becomes addicted.' Alan Bennett


Good Food For Your Table is a grocer's guide: this is the shopping basket deconstructed, including all you need to know about seasonality, provenance, storage, preserving and serving the very best food.

Melrose and Morgan have ten years' experience as high-street grocers, and here they share expert information to help you buy the best food so there will always be good things to eat at home. A well-stocked larder is the backbone of any kitchen, and this book is a compendium of advice on the best ingredients to buy and how to manage your kitchen cupboard to ensure nothing goes to waste. It also includes a selection of favourite recipes and simple, quick ideas to rustle up a meal.

If you've ever found yourself confused about the difference between mixed spice and allspice, Stilton and Stichelton, quinoa and couscous, then this is the book for you. We all want to be more knowledgeable about the food we eat, and this is the essential storecupboard handbook that no discerning cook should be without.

Biographical Notes

Melrose & Morgan are two grocery shops based in Hampstead and Primrose Hill. Nick and Ian gave up other careers to open their shop 10 years ago, and now have a well-established food brand with a reputation second to none. In 2014 they opened up a pop-up shop in Selfridges.

A Pot of Marmalade

Sarah Randell
Authors:
Sarah Randell

This is a black and white paperback edition of Marmalade: A Bittersweet Cookbook, published in hardback in 2014 by Saltyard Books. If you would like the original colour illustrated version of Marmalade it is available in hardback ISBN 9781444784329. 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.
