Ten Cocktails

The Art of Convivial Drinking

By Alice Lascelles

  • Hardback
  • £16.99

The sophisticated edit of the cocktail menu.

In Ten Cocktails, The Times drinks columnist Alice Lascelles uses ten of her favourite cocktails to distil the stories, recipes and tips she has amassed in more than a decade in pursuit of the mixed drink. Join her as she dodges the washing lines of backstreet Havana in search of the perfect Daiquiri, scours the cocktail bars of Tokyo for the world's best ice carvers, harvests juniper in the hills of Umbria, goes sipping Sazeracs in New Orleans and unearths the mixological secrets of The Savoy.

What makes a G&T glow in the dark? Who threw the world's first cocktail party? Why does a Bloody Mary taste best at 35,000 feet? And what's the key to opening champagne with a sword?

By the time you finish Ten Cocktails you will have the answers to these questions and many more, as well as an armoury of cocktail recipes for every occasion, from convivial party-starters and lip-smacking sours to slow-stirred whiskey drinks and indulgent nightcaps.

Whether you've just forked out for your first shaker, or you've got your Martini mixing down to a tee, this book will have you thirsting to try new things come 6 o'clock.

'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

With a few clever twists and drawing on influences from her travels and her family (a glamorous French grandma, a father brought up in Spain and a Norwegian great grandmother) Alex's recipes are easy, inexpensive and just a little bit different.For anyone who wants inspiration for quick mid-week meals, impromptu kitchen suppers with friends or relaxed weekend socials, My Busy Kitchen is the book for you.

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.

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.

Thomas Keneally
Authors:
Thomas Keneally

Schoolboy narrator Daniel Jordan, growing up in working-class Sydney during the Second World War, is confused by a world in which the religious dogma of his school conflicts with the communism of his family's terrifying neighbour, the 'Comrade'. Refreshingly unsentimental, this is the funny, ultimately tragic story of a boy struggling to understand a world in which concepts like innocence and guilt, good and evil are clearly open to interpretation.
