By Melrose and Morgan

  • E-Book
  • £P.O.R.

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.

Liam Charles

The debut cookbook by the breakout star of The Great British Bake Off 2017.When you bake you want the results to be mouth-watering and jaw-droppingly good. You want gasps of awe followed by silence as your friends and family munch their way through your genius creations. No one understands this better than Liam Charles. Who else could bring you a Caramel Peanut Millionaire's Shortbread, an Oreo Chocolate Brownie Freakshake or a Christmas Dinner Pie? It has to be Liam and in his first book, he introduces his latest inventions and favourite bakes that are guaranteed to get you in the kitchen. Cheeky Treats is a cookbook like no other, packed with fantastic flavours, wonderfully creative bakes, and fun and beautiful photography that captures Liam's personality and flair. Warning: if you're looking for a Victoria Sponge recipe - look elsewhere!'Cheeky Treats, a spangly, Technicolor, many-faceted recipe book... It is distinguished not by the two kilos of icing sugar in the Football Cake (and that's just the buttercream!), nor the very simple, incredibly effective, domino pattern on his salted millionaire dominoes, nor his vertiginous layering or moments of French patisserie perfectionism, but by the joie de vivre conveyed by all those things, and the rest.' - The Guardian
