With over 300 recipe ideas and many wonderful stories from the fruit garden, Tender: Volume II - A cook's guide to the fruit garden is the definitive guide to cooking with fruit from the presenter of BBC One's Simple Cooking. 'When I dug up my lawn to grow my own vegetables and herbs I planted fruit too. A handful of small trees - plum, apple and pear - some raspberry, blackberry and currant bushes and even strawberries in pots suddenly joined my patch of potatoes, beans and peas. These fruits became the backbone of my home baking, the stars in my cakes and pastries and even inspired the odd pot of jam. More than this, I started to use them in new ways too, from a weekday supper of pork chops with cider and apples to a Chinese Sunday roast with spiced plum sauce. The hot family puddings and fruit ices we had always loved so much suddenly took on a delicious new significance.' With over 300 recipe ideas and many wonderful stories from the fruit garden, Tender: Volume II - A cook's guide to the fruit garden is the definitive guide to cooking with fruit from the presenter of BBC One's Simple Cooking.
We've cut carbs from our diets, but are we any healthier? Recent research suggests not! Findings show that a diet featuring a moderate amount of carbs (around 50-55% of calories), rather than extremely low (below 40%) or high (over 60%) is the best for our long-term health and wellbeing, with either extreme said to negatively affect life expectancy. The Right Carb is a timely guide with an informative look at the importance of eating good carbs. With practical advice and tips, the book explains how eating the 'right' carbs are vital: providing energy, improving the health of the gut, digestion and mood as well as aiding sleep. It shows how to choose the right carbs as well as the best ways to prepare and cook them for maximum nutrition and minimum nutrient-loss. The book highlights that balance is key, with other food groups, such as good-quality plant proteins and the right fats, being equally important. Nicola Graimes celebrates the 'right' carbs, not only highlighting their numerous health attributes, but also their diversity and the enjoyment they give to our cooking and eating. Her book dispels many of the myths surrounding carbs, including which carbs are healthy and the ones to avoid. It also showcases the best ways to prepare and cook carbs for maximum nutrition and flavour. With over 50 delicious and vibrant recipes covering Breakfasts, Small Plates, Big Plates, Sides and Treats as well as easy-to-understand nutritional advice, the book provides the complete package to sensible right-carb eating for the long term and not a quick-fix diet. The Right Carb is a practical and inspirational approach to maintaining a healthy way of eating - it's time to revive our enjoyment of this valuable food group.

Claudia Roden As a nation of food-lovers we have been munching on fruit and veg, drinking tea and coffee and adorning our dishes with oils and spices for generations, but have you ever stopped to wonder how our most beloved foods came to be the way they are now? In this series of enlightening and highly entertaining essays, award-winning food writer Mark Riddaway travels back through the centuries to tell the fascinating, surprising and often downright bizarre stories of some of the everyday ingredients found at London's Borough Market. Discover how the strawberries we eat today had their roots in a clandestine trip to South America by a French spy whose surname happened to be Strawberry, why three-quarters of Britain's late-18th-century intake of tea was sold on the black market, and what Sigmund Freud found so fascinating about eel genitalia. From the humble apples and onions that we've grown on these shores for centuries, to more exotic ingredients like cinnamon and bananas that travel from across the world to finesse our food, Borough Market: Edible Histories offers a chance to digest the charming stories behind every last morsel.

Whisky is Scotland's national drink and has been for over five hundred years, since then becoming a global phenomenon. It is a drink that is a profound and important part of Scottish life and culture but, unlike other countries and their national libations, it has hardly been used in food. Rachel McCormack is going to change that with this book. Limiting whisky to a drink, she believes, is similar to the traditional Presbyterian attitude to sex; it should only be done with the lights off and in the missionary position. Rachel believes that there is an entire Karma Sutraof whisky use out there and she has put it in this book. Interspersing an engaging mix of anecdotes, history and information on distillers and recipes, this book will appeal to everyone from the cooking whisky connoisseur, to the novice whisky learner looking for some guidance on what to eat and cook. Rachel travels the length and breadth of Scotland, discovering a myriad of unique and interesting people and facts about this remarkable drink, with interviews with the key people who create it around the country, as she visits the famous distilleries of her country, as well as the more home-grown variety.
M.F.K. Fisher, whom John Updike has called our "poet of the
appetites," here pays tribute to that most delicate and enigmatic
of foods---the oyster. As she tells of oysters found in stews, in
soups, roasted, baked, fried, prepared a la Rockefeller or au
naturel--and of the pearls sometimes found therein--Fisher
describes her mother's joy at encountering oyster loaf in a girls'
dorm in he 1890's, recalls her own initiation into the "strange
cold succulence" of raw oysters as a young woman in Marseille and
Dijon, and explores both the bivalve's famed aphrodisiac properties
and its equally notorious gut-wrenching powers. Plumbing the
"dreadful but exciting" life of the oyster, Fisher invites readers
to share in the comforts and delights that this delicate edible
evokes, and enchants us along the way with her characteristically
wise and witty prose.
Show me a recipe with pecans, and I have to try it. Attributing her own love of this American nut to the state of her birth--Georgia is the nation's leader in growing pecans--and to the happy fact that her mother ""hardly made a cookie, candy, or pan of Sunday dressing without them,"" Kathleen Purvis teaches readers how to find, store, cook, and completely enjoy this southern delicacy. Pecans includes fifty-two recipes, ranging from traditional to inventive, from uniquely southern to distinctly international, including Bourbon-Orange Pecans, Buttermilk-Pecan Chicken, Pecan Pralines, and Leche Quemada. In addition to the recipes, Purvis delights readers with the pecan's culinary history and its intimate connections with southern culture and foodways. Headnotes for the recipes offer humorous personal stories as well as preparation tips such as how to choose accompanying cheeses.
In addition to great fig recipes, this cookbook includes educational information about figs: preparation, selection, freezing, drying options, rehydration, packaging, and storage tips. A fabulous horticulture guide to growing fig trees and includes contact information for frequently used products and fig trees.
Multiple-Michelin-starred Daniel Galmiche presents a fresh approach to French cooking. Taking inspiration and ingredients from meadow and orchard, from field to forest, and from river to sea, each recipe elevates authentic French rural classics to sophisticated dishes, full of flavour and easy to create at home. French cooking centres around one maxim: start with quality ingredients, and the resulting flavour and freshness of the dish will shine. Daniel shows how to showcase the humblest of ingredients, with tips on how to source them sustainably and seasonally. Starters, mains, sides and desserts are organised by the origin of their key ingredient. From the meadow, gather flowers for a dandelion, wild thyme and lemon cake. From the farmyard, make use of a chicken carcass to create a beautifully clear and nourishing broth. Or from the sea, create fragrant lemongrass-skewered prawns with sauce vierge. With short ingredients lists and straightforward guidance on how to perfect chef-level techniques such as dehydrating and sous-vide without the fancy equipment, this book will allow you to master innovative French cuisine - and reduce food waste - with simplicity. This is a new and updated edition of the classic Revolutionary French Cookbook, with a timely emphasis on sustainability and responsibly-sourced ingredients. This book was inspired by Daniel's return to the countryside during the pandemic. With each long country walk, his background in rural France returned to him and everything began to make sense. He felt a need to return to these recipes, and a need to revive them alongside new recipes created during that quiet time.

But for cooks eager to use the new array of grains grown locally in the United States and their flours, she has more than eighty creations, many drawn from the familiar pastry case of cookies, cakes, scones, breads and pies, only with an alternative, healthier kick. Organised around the eight "mother" grains-barley, buckwheat, corn, oats, rice, rye, sorghum and wheat-this cookbook bursts with the chewiness of rye chocolate chip cookies, the intensity of white cheddar cornmeal biscuits and the rich earthiness of sorghum pecan pie. With recipes from corn polenta ice cream to shiitake mushroom, leek and toasted barley soup, and enough variations to inspire a range of sweet and savoury cooking, Mother Grains-featuring shopping and storing tips, essays on the history of each grain and sunny step-by-step photos-should sit on any devoted baker's shelf.
