'Sybil's book has taken the complicated subject of the multi-sensory approach to cooking and made it both approachable and fun. This is a definitive guide to the "building blocks" of creating dishes that speak on many levels and tap into our conscious and unconscious enjoyment of them.' - Kyle Connaughton, Chef/Owner SingleThread Farm-Restaurant-Inn
What makes a dish look alluring? Can smell (flavour) enhance the pleasure of eating? Does the texture and sound of food change our perception? 'Sight Smell Touch Taste Sound' is essential reading for anyone who loves to cook. Sybil Kapoor leads the reader through simplified kitchen theory and a selection of tempting recipes reveal how we can unlock the power of our five senses to make amazing meals.
Cooking is the creation of dishes using different techniques and ingredients. Underlying any recipe are five fundamental elements that form the five chapters of the book: Taste, Flavour (smell), Texture (touch and sound), Temperature (touch) and Appearance. Integral to our experience of eating, these are the building blocks of cookery throughout the world, whether you are making lemon pickle in India or porridge in Scotland. This book explains how these five elements work together and shows the reader how best to use them in everyday cooking to produce simple, delicious dishes.
The book is designed so that the reader first understands a little theory, then by cooking the recipes and conducting easy practical tests suggested throughout. Carefully cross-referenced, over 125 recipes ensure a good breadth of ideas for the domestic cook, ranging from Persian Sour Lentil Soup and Blackened Salmon with Pineapple Salsa to Mint Julep and Chilli Marmalade. Refine your understanding of multi-sensory cooking and you will find that your kitchen prowess knows no bounds. This is Sybil Kapoor's Sight Smell Touch Taste Sound: A New Way to Cook essential for any cook s bookshelf.
'Sybil has bridged the gap between food science and everyday cuisine. It's great to see there is an easier approach for home cooks like you and me, and encouragement to explore and look at food from a different point of view.' - Tony Conigliaro, founder of the Drink Factory
'Sybil Kapoor's books are the most well-thumbed on my kitchen shelf, and this one is already acquiring a heavy patina of spatters...I love love love the food in this book, and the thoughtful commentary that comes with it. From Kapoor I learnt that eating chapatti and paneer with my fingers would enhance my perception of its texture, and that some dishes, such as spiced pea and potato frittata taste better (and more silky) just-warm' - Victoria Moore, Telegraph Wine Editor

Drawing on the cuisine of the Middle Ages, from the fall of the Roman Empire to Henry VIII's break with Rome, this new treatment of a classic book explores the relationship between food, religion and the ever-widening gap between the tables of the rich and the poor. Featured is an appetizing collection of recipes inspired by medieval manuscripts, richly illustrated throughout with stunning scenes of food, feasting and cooking from paintings, tapestries and drawings. "The Medieval Cookbook" has been thoughtfully adapted for the modern kitchen, whilst retaining the true essence of dining in medieval Britain.
If there's one distinctive feature of the British countryside, it has to be the hedgerow. In fact, hedgerows are such an established part of our landscape that sometimes we take them for granted. But take a closer look, and the diversity and variety of plant species that form them is little short of wondrous. And it is not only plant life that thrives in abundance in the hedgerow - native wild animals, birds and insects are protected and nourished by them. We know that at least 65 species of birds live in our hedgerows and that they are crucial to the survival of moths, bats and dormice. Hedgerows can provide a great fund of fresh, wild food for us, too, and this is partly what this book is about. In The Hedgerow Handbook Adele Nozedar reintroduces the wild and natural hedgerow ingredients that our grandmothers used on a regular basis - but gives them a fresh and contemporary twist. From angelica to ash and bird cherry to borage, from pineapple weed to plantain and wild garlic to wimberries, each entry is accompanied by an exquisite full colour illustration to help you identify each plant or flower, along with its history and folklore, and culinary and medicinal uses. You won't find yet another recipe for blackberry pie nor nettle soup here, however - this is not your run-of-the mill hedgerow book. Instead, why not try Adele's Spicy Ash Key Pickle, her Beechnut Turron, Red Clover Lemonade or Wild Raspberry Vodka? The Hedgerow Handbook is much more than a foraging book - it is an inspiration and a trigger for a new experience of our countryside and for memories: of a summer filled with hot sunny days; or of the time you got drenched in a sudden rain shower miles away from the warmth and dryness of your car or home, which made those blackberry muffins even more enjoyable.
This is the perfect volume for anybody who enjoys drinking beer and snacking... So basically, every (adult) human being on earth. As we all know, beer is enjoyed the world over. And wherever beer is imbibed, there's usually some kind of delicious and salty snack to go with it. We know for a fact that beer has existed at least as early as the fifth millennium BC, so author Oscar Smith's only remaining question is: why didn't anyone make this book sooner? Beer Snacks starts its journey at smaller snacky fare like moreish Malaysian ikan bilis, Japanese otsumami, USA-style boiled peanuts and Mexican Chicharron. These are the sort of tiny bites that are designed to be grabbed by the fistful and basically inhaled, or scooped into the mouth, rather than eaten in any classy sort of way. Beer Snacks then advances to more substantial drinking-friendly food like spicy buffalo wings and currywurst (German), chorizo cooked in cider (Spain) and the ultimate in beer-soaking technology: Canadian poutine. Oscar Smith himself says: "I don't speak Quebecois myself, but I can only assume that `poutine' translates directly to English as `heaven on our undeserving Earth'." Indeed. Well, finally, Beer Snacks brings you the world's best of what to eat, while you drink.
