Every day at noon in the dining hall of New College, Oxford in the
1770s, a feast was laid for students and the dons, clad in white
waistcoats and wigs. They sat down to cod with oysters, ham, fowls,
boiled beef, rabbits smothered with onions, mutton, veal collops,
pork griskins, New College Puddings, mince pies, and roots
(vegetables). That was only the first course. For the second
course, they were served roast turkey, a haunch of venison, a brace
of woodcocks, snipes, veal olives, trifle, blancmange, stewed
pippins, and preserved quinces. Ralph Ayres was the genius behind
this daily repast, and his choice recipes are chronicled here in
"Ralph Ayres' Cookery Book,"
Published for the first time in the UK, Laurie Colwin's much loved kitchen essays are perfect for fans of Nigella Lawson and Nigel Slater. Weaving together memories, recipes, and wild tales of years spent in the kitchen, Home Cooking is Laurie Colwin's manifesto on the joys of sharing food and entertaining. From the humble hot-plate of her one-room apartment to the crowded kitchens of bustling parties, Colwin regales us with tales of meals gone both magnificently well and disastrously wrong. Never before published in the UK, this is hilarious, personal and full of Colwin's hard-won expertise. Home Cooking will speak to the heart (and stomach) of any amateur cook, professional chef, or food lover. Praise for Laurie Colwin: 'Everything food writing should be: funny, profound, inspiring and unaffected' Nigella Lawson 'I have in my kitchen a book called Home Cooking. And, in between following the recipes for Extremely Easy Old-Fashioned Beef Stew or Estelle Colwin Snellenberg's Potato Pancakes, I would frequently sit down on a little stool in my kitchen and read through one of the essays in that book. I never read through Joy of Cooking, and I can read The Silver Palate Cookbook standing up, but I always sat down to read these' Anna Quindlen Laurie Colwin is the author of five novels - Happy All the Time, Family Happiness, Goodbye Without Leaving, A Big Storm Knocked It Over and Shine On, Bright and Dangerous Object - three collections of short stories - Passion and Affect, The Lone Pilgrim and Another Marvellous Thing - and two collections of essays, Home Cooking and More Home Cooking. Laurie Colwin died in 1992.

Food is a language that communicates beyond the limitations of words. It is true that we are what we eat. Not only physically, but also emotionally. The Spanish are very much Sangria, tapas and paella people. The French are foie gras, champagne and haute cuisine. The Germans beer and eisbein, the Italians wine, pasta and slow food. And Namibians? We are the braai, kapana, lazy afternoons and long evenings around a fire - we are a hearty feast of the very best of meat grilled on real wood fires under an endless sky. It is beautiful to see how people cook and eat the way that they talk, think and live. But the language of food also has a more private and individual significance. It is a way for us to demonstrate tove and compassion when words alone are not enough. Home-cooked meals bring families together around tables, where people sit and talk, make eye contact and connect again. In the kitchens of all our earth mothers and patres familias, meals are prepared to feed bodies and souls, to make memories and to create a legacy of love that is passed on from generation to generation. So every recipe book becomes a collection of love letters, a recollection of history, stories of times and people and places that were good, that made life better for the people for whom the food was prepared. I love to cook. Whether it began out of I sheer desperation to save us from a I potential embarrassment of having my mom cook for dignatories when I was 12, or whether it is the relaxed atmosphere of my farm kitchen, surrounded by my husband Chris and my children Christoph and Marietjie, our faithful dogs and always as many friends and family we can get together around a table. I love to cook. Through the years, through chance encounters with random foodies on my path, I realised that I was destined to cook. Lovely flavours, exotic combinations and strong tastes resonated with me. It was especially during the early time of my marriage to Chris - when we lived in Oshakati during the last years of the war and where we met ail these interesting and fun people and eating together was the main recreational activity in our lives - that I really fell deeply in love with the art of food. The older women in our social circles taught me so much about how to mal gourmet meals out of limited and erratic supplies. This is the story of food in Namibia: making the best of what you have, practical and maximal. It is metaphorical of the character of our nation. Back in Windhoek my career took its course, from cooking demonstrations for food enthusiasts to judging braai competitions for various farmers associations and the odd party catering favour to friends to a fully fledged catering business. I became involved in the annual national Tourism Expo, developing the "Chef's Theatre", which was an incredible journey. I met many of the giants in the gourmet industry and some of them have become my dearest and closest friends. I have embraced every opportunity to travel, to experience new cultures and learn about people through their cooking. I fanatically collect recipes and cookbooks. I love it, especially when the great loves of my life, my family, my friends and good food, all come together, which is what this book is all about.

In this new book, the follow-up to his bestselling River Cottage Cookbook, Hugh writes about the year on his Dorset smallholding. He recalls, month by month, the highs and lows of past years, and anticipates the 12 months ahead - what'll be in season when, and when'll be the best months to crack on with such tasks as chick rearing and sheep shearing, haymaking and hedge laying. But, for all its outdoorsy information, the real focus of THE RIVER COTTAGE YEAR is indoors - at Hugh's kitchen table. With over 100 brand new recipes, this is above all a cookery book and for once a genuinely seasonal one, celebrating local seasonal produce at its very best - chestnuts in January, artichokes in March, rhubarb in April, asparagus in May, strawberries in June, blackcurrants in July, tomatoes in August, plums in September, apples in October, pumpkins in November and parsnips in December... Full of his hard-earned smallholder's wisdom, seasoned with his infectious good humour, THE RIVER COTTAGE YEAR is Hugh's rallying cry for us to reclaim the seasons.
