The Beer Kitchen by Melissa Cole (Hardback) ISBN: 9781784881887

When a recipe calls for `beer' do you have the first clue of what you should add? When was the last time you read a recipe that really specified a beer style, or even suggested a few different brands from the bewildering array on your supermarket shelves? Good news, this book does all that and more.

In The Beer Kitchen award-winning beer expert Melissa Cole has combined two of her greatest passions: great brews and delicious food. Sharing over 70 incredible recipes Melissa expertly guides you through the gustatory pleasure of cooking with beer and what to drink with your creations.

Starting with the `science bits' you will discover the importance between taste and flavour, how to assess beer and pair to perfection. Then dive into the recipes, which include everything from delicious dips, flatbreads and pickles to show-off roasts, classic pies and inventive desserts. Feast on the exquisite Beer-brined Pork Chops with Blue Cheese Polenta or perhaps prepare the perfect Beer-Poached Chicken for Sunday lunch. For mid-week meals, for when you want something hearty but healthy, then dish up the creamy Celeriac Croquettes with Hefeweizen Sauce or the lighter but extremely tasty Warm Kale & Nduja Salad or, for ultimate indulgence, tuck into the Quick Chocolate Pots with Kriek-Soaked Cranberries.

With thorough advice on beer-types and flavour notes to beer and cheese pairing plus a helpful guide to tools and equipment and store cupboard essentials, The Beer Kitchen is a new, scientific and exciting approach to food that will change the way you cook and what you drink with it.

Les Abats by Michel Roux Jr (Hardback) ISBN: 9781409168959

Les Abats by Michel Roux Jr (Hardback) ISBN: 9781409168959

"Don't be afraid of offal. Some of the greatest of all French classics involve organ meats such as brains and sweetbreads." - Michel Roux Jr

Celebrated chef Michel Roux Jr passionately believes that we are missing out. At a time when food shortage is a global concern, health fears over processed meat are making headlines and the cost of living is higher than ever, he can't understand our reluctance to utilise every part of an animal's carcass. Brains, organs, intestines, hooves - items that are traditionally viewed with distaste in our society - are an integral part of French and world cuisine.

With this book, the two-star Michelin chef hopes to change the way we think about offal and demonstrate that, with a little time and effort, it can be used to produce enticing and delicious food to impress friends and feed families.

The book will contain recipes ranging from the simple sweetbreads Michel's mother fed him as a child, to the more adventurous dishes in the style served at his award-winning restaurants. Dishes range from La Salade Aveyronnaise (Warm salad with sweetbreads and Roquefort) or Soupe aux abattis (Giblet soup), to Cervelle de veau zingara (Calves' brains with zingara) or Langue de boefu au persil et cares (Salted ox tongue with caper parsley sauce).

Mushrooms by Jenny Linford (Hardback) ISBN: 9781849758802

Mushrooms by Jenny Linford (Hardback) ISBN: 9781849758802

A celebration of mushrooms and fungi – from folklore to foraging. Plus a collection of more than 65 deeply delicious recipes where fabulous fungi take centre stage.

Mushrooms – part of the fungi kingdom – come in an array of sizes, shapes and colours, making them a fascinating ingredient to cook with. From regular humble cultivated button and oyster mushrooms, to wild mushrooms such as chanterelles and porcini, and not forgetting the VIP of the ingredient world, the truffle, this book covers them all. So much more than a tasty side for a fried breakfast, there are many things that make mushrooms a wonder-ingredient. Many mushrooms – such as the Shiitake, beloved in China, or Enoki, enjoyed in Japan – are carriers for the savoury umami fifth-taste. They are wonderfully diverse to cook with – natural allies with butter, herbs and garlic but also able to work well with all manner of spices. They can be eaten raw in carpaccio, plump in a fragrant bowl of noodles, or bound in buttery, flaky pastry. Their distinct yet delicate earthy flavour goes perfectly with luxurious foods like steak and cheese, but also bring body, bite and satisfaction to light plant-based meals, making them popular among vegetarians and vegans. Most varieties of mushrooms are inexpensive, low in calories and contain valuable vitamins and nutrients. Food writer Jenny Linford’s mouth-watering selection of recipes include: Small Bites and Sharing Plates such as such as Pesto Ricotta Stuffed Mushrooms, Shiitake Dumplings and Truffle Mushroom Crostini. Satisfying Soups and Stews, like Thai Mushroom Soup or Pumpkin and Lentil Stew. Hearty and delicious meat and fish dishes like Beef Porcini Ragu with Pappardelle and White Fish Fillet with Wild Mushrooms. Light Salads and Vegetable Dishes include Fennel, Mushroom and Crab Salad and Wild Mushroom Carpaccio. To conclude, Eggs and Cheese incorporates decadent dishes such as White Pizza with Funghi, Parma Ham and Truffle Oil. Woven into the recipe chapters are seven informative essays, with topics that range from how to grow mushrooms to mushroom folklore.

Slow Dough REAL BREAD by Chris Young (Hardback) ISBN: 9781848997370

Slow Dough REAL BREAD by Chris Young (Hardback) ISBN: 9781848997370

Baking bread is an ancient craft; kneading the dough to produce a loaf is a fulfilling experience. But in industrial production, and even in the modern kitchen, one important ingredient is often left out of bread making time. As the experienced bakers from the Real Bread Campaign will tell you, long and slow is far more satisfying than a quick finish. A long-proved loaf has more time to develop flavour, has a better texture and, in the case of genuine sourdough, might actually have health benefits.

Slow Dough: Real Bread shares with you secrets from the experts on how to make a huge array of slow-rise breads at home from basic brown, white and rye breads, to impressive loaves such as fig and fennel sourdough or goat's cheese and honey maslin, to a range tea breads, pizza doughs and classic international breads. You'll learn how to make different starters for different breads, as well as the fundamental processes: fermenting, kneading, proving, and baking. Treating Real Bread with the respect it deserves, there are also recipes such as gingery treacle tart, breadcrumb pakoras and panzanella for using up any that you may have left over, so you don't waste a crumb.

In a world of mass-production and unnecessary artificial additives, this book about real craftsmanship is like a breath of fresh air.

SWEET by Yotam Ottelenghi (Hardback) ISBN: 978

‘There’s nothing like a perfectly light sponge flavoured with spices and citrus or an icing-sugar-dusted cookie to raise the spirits and create a moment of pure joy.’

In his stunning new baking and desserts cookbook Yotam Ottolenghi and his long-time collaborator Helen Goh bring the Ottolenghi hallmarks of fresh, evocative ingredients, exotic spices and complex flavourings - including fig, rose petal, saffron, aniseed, orange blossom, pistachio and cardamom - to indulgent cakes, biscuits, tarts, puddings, cheesecakes and ice cream.

Sweet includes over 110 innovative recipes with stunning photos by award-winning Peden + Munk – from Blackberry and Star Anise Friands, Tahini and Halva Brownies, Persian Love Cakes, Middle Eastern Millionaire’s Shortbread, and Saffron, Orange and Honey Madeleines to Flourless Chocolate Layer Cake with Coffee, Walnut and Rosewater and Cinnamon Pavlova with Praline Cream and Fresh Figs.

There is something here to delight everyone – from simple mini-cakes and cookies that parents can make with their children to showstopping layer cakes and roulades that will reignite the imaginations of accomplished bakers.
