People think of tripe as just another dreary post-war substitute for real food, one of the worst aspects of food rationing. But it has a long and glorious history as a staple of working-class diet in the industrial towns of Lancashire and northern England. It was never a new invention of the Industrial Revolution, but its cheapness and nutritional value gave it a new significance among cotton workers and other factory hands. All through Lancashire there arose large numbers of tripe dressers (often back-room businesses) and tripe restaurants (often of surprising ornateness and magnificence). All this disappeared with our growing affluence in the sixties and seventies and tripe is (almost) now restricted to chefs exploring the byways of butchery and to people with long memories. Of course, it was never specifically English: lots of other cultures embraced tripe cookery and made classics of the dish - not least the French (Tripes a la mode de Caen) and the Turkish market workers who still rejoice in tripe soup of a morning. Marjory Houlihan's charming and instructive book tells the story of tripe in Lancashire as well as giving recipes from around the world. It was first published in Bolton in 1988 but this is the first time it has been given national distribution. So that a fuller picture is available, we have also printed Roy Shipperbottom's essay on the tripe restaurants of Lancashire and Lynda Brown's essay on the cooking of cow's udder (elder) in the north country. We forget the richness of England's food history and food culture and this book, with others in 'The English Kitchen' series, goes some way to redress the balance.
It's legal and regal--time to make some classy baked goods that can get you baked. Because everyone loves sugar, and (nearly) everyone loves cannabis.
This beautifully photographed cookbook celebrates a British-style high tea--where all the delightful snacks are laden with cannabis. Now that the legal and regulated consumption of cannabis is steadily increasing, more and more of us are using weed when we bake. Gobbling down cannabis gives you a different high than smoking it, plus it's fun and easy to bake with, and the therapeutic benefits are much more effective. So it's time to get this book and make a classy high tea worthy of the British royals (but load it with space cakes, tarts, and sweet treats).
Just some of the recipes included in this book are Dulce de Leche Sandwich Cookies, S'mokey S'Mores Bars, Gooey Brownies, Proper Scones, and centerpiece-worthy creations like the Banana Toffee Cake.
This book also explains the basics to making herb butters, oils, and other essential cannabinoid baking bases. Best of all, the mind-melting component of each of these desserts can be cranked up, dialed down, or removed completely--depending on your personal preference.

New York Times and USA Today Bestseller "Eat food, not too much, mostly plants." With these seven words, Michael Pollan-brother of Lori, Dana, and Tracy Pollan, and son of Corky-started a national conversation about how to eat for optimal health. A decade later, the value of a plant-based diet is widely accepted-and yet for many people, easier said than done. So what does choosing "mostly plants" look like in real life? In families where not everyone is on the same vegetarian page the word "mostly" is key. The point isn't necessarily to give up meat entirely but to build a diet that shifts the ratio of animal to plants to create delicious-and nutritious-meals sure to appeal to everyone. There has never been a better time to cook with vegetables-and to move plants to the center of the American plate. Even if plants weren't the better choice for your health, they make the case for themselves purely on the basis of deliciousness. This approach to eating-also known as a flexitarian diet-strikes the best balance on our plates between flavor and pleasure, and nutrition and sustainability. In Mostly Plants, readers will find inventive and unexpected ways to focus on cooking with vegetables-dishes such as Crispy Kale and Potato Hash with Fried Eggs; Tandoori Chicken and Vegetable Sheet Pan Supper; Salmon Farro Bowl; and Roasted Tomato Soup with Gruyere Chickpea "Croutons". Here are recipes that keep the spotlight on the vegetables, at a time when the quality of fresh produce has never been better. In Mostly Plants readers will find recipes that satisfy or can be adapted to almost all dietary needs; vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, and dairy free. And the best part: many of these dishes can be on the table in 35 minutes or less! With skillet-to-oven recipes, sheet pan suppers, one-pot meals and more, this is real cooking for real life: meals that are wholesome, delectable-and mostly plants.

Seumas MacInnes, one of Scotland's premier restaurateurs and owner of the iconic Cafe Gandolfi in Glasgow, is not afraid to take issue with the national bard over the sobriquet 'Great chieftain o' the puddin race'. Without slighting the qualities of haggis, or indeed white pudding, he wholeheartedly maintains that the title rightfully belongs to black pudding - and, very specifically, Stornoway black pudding. Raised in Glasgow with a Hebridean heritage, he rates black pudding as a versatile and uniquely flavoursome ingredient which can be served in myriad ways that will come as a revelation to those who still mistakenly associate the humble marag dubh solely with fried breakfasts. The 100 recipes in The Stornoway Black Pudding Bible include everything from the Cafe Gandolfi's black pudding and mushrooms with pancakes, to black pudding pakoras, black pudding tarts and black pudding, chorizo and bean stew. Black - or blood - pudding has a venerable past that stretches back to allusions in Homeric literature and a present that ensures its enduring popularity in the cuisines of, among others, Spain, France and Portugal. The Stornoway Black Pudding Bible is a celebration of the quality and versatility of black pudding, and above all is an encouragement to strike out in novel and fresh ways of cooking and enjoying this remarkable and underrated ingredient.
