Striking images showcase how the dishes should be presented, with each dish having an image and step-by-step instructions for how to recreate it yourself.

Elizabeth David's books belong in the libraries of everyone who loves to read and prepare food and this one is generally regarded as her best; her passion and knowledge comes through on every page. She was one of the foremost writers on food in the latter half of the 20th century and this book has her most celebrated writing. "French Provincial Cooking" should be approached and read as a series of short stories, as well written and evocative as the best literature.
The voice is highly personal and opinionated, sometimes sharp but always true and always entertaining. Here is a long essay on French cuisine, offering background stories and sketches of recipes more than the slavishly didactic type of recipes that most modern readers might be used to today. For many Elizabeth David was the first to introduce us to the French notion of la cuisine terroir, sometimes interpreted as 'what grows together goes together'. For David, this is the heart of regional cooking, and the thing which most distinguishes it from cooking in haute cuisine restaurants where diners arrive at any time or any season and expect to be able to order any well known French specialty.
One of the passages which best characterizes David's approach to a lot of cooking is her opening statement on the perfect omelet: 'As everybody knows, there is only one infallible recipe for the perfect omelet: your own.'
The book starts with a short essay on each of the major culinary regions of France, starting perhaps not surprisingly with Provence which is blessed an abundance of produce. The largest portion of the book consists of chapters on cuisine by type of dish: Sauces, Hors-D'oeuvres and Salads, Soups, Eggs and Cheese, Pates and Terrines, Vegetables, Fish, Shellfish, Meat, Composite Meat Dishes, Poultry and Game, and Sweet dishes.
The book is all the more valuable in that it paints a picture of a cooking style which existed before modern equipment such as the food processor. Most importantly, the recipes work if your aim is to produce the most excellent food imaginable. What initially may seem to be annoying details (e.g., for omelets, eggs 'should not really be beaten at all, but stirred, ' whereas for scrambled eggs, they should be 'very well beaten') are actually secrets to be treasured, that elevate a good dish to a superb one. The lesson is that good food should be done simply, but it takes care, attention to detail, and frequently, time.
A hardback edition of "French Provincial Cooking" has been unavailable for many years and Grub Street is re-issuing it because of overwhelming demand. It should become as popular an edition as the best-selling "Elizabeth David Classics."

From childhood to singledom, raising a family, divorce and marriage to Michael Ruhlman, Ann Hood has long appreciated the power of a good meal. Growing up, she tasted love in her grandmother's tomato sauce and dreamed of her mother's Fancy Lady Sandwiches. Hood cooked roast pork to warm her first apartment, found hope in her daughter's omelette and fell in love-with her husband and his chicken stock. Hood tracks her lifelong journey in the kitchen with twenty-seven essays, each accompanied by a recipe (or a few). In "Carbonara Quest", searching for the perfect spaghetti helped her cope with lonely nights as a flight attendant. In the award-winning "The Golden Silver Palate", she recounts the history of her fail-safe dinner party recipe for Chicken Marbella and how it failed her. Hood's simple, comforting recipes include meatballs, Beef Stew, Fried Chicken, grilled cheese and a peach pie.

**AWARDED A MUMSNET RATED BADGE 2017** `Exceeded my expectations! In-depth introduction to weaning, including useful nutritional information, plus lots of lovely recipes appropriate to each stage of weaning - and the ones for toddlers are fantastic for the whole family to share, too!' Mumsnet Reviewer Weaning my little ones was a joyous, messy and occasionally testing experience! This book aims to help you through the next development phase: introducing your baby to the colourful, flavourful, wonderful world of food. The thought of weaning can be daunting to the most self-assured mums and dads. I know I felt that way, even with my third! But while every baby is different, one thing is the same for all parents: the importance of serving them delicious, nutritious dishes with minimal fuss and maximum benefits. There is no one-size-fits all approach and there are decisions to be made: spoon-feeding purees or baby-led weaning? What equipment don't you need and where should you spend extra? With so much contradictory advice out there, I wanted to provide a go-to guide that arms you with everything you need to know as your baby starts on solids. You'll read about the basics of good nutrition; techniques; equipment; ages and stages (what they can have, and when). I'll also share my go-to recipes for the key stages in the first 15 months, developed over the process of weaning my three children. These are simple, easy-to-follow meals and plans that require minimal prep time, make the most of your ingredients and won't break the bank. I've also provided recipes for the months and years that follow, including sections on feeding the entire family (the ultimate goal!) and the perfect things to serve at party time. There will be testing moments but there will be joyous ones too - I'll never forget the look on my children's faces when they first tasted baby rice! So take a deep breath, trust your intuition and dive in! Love, Holly xxx

Delectable is more than just a cookery book; it's about good living as much as it is about good food. Author Marlene van der Westhuizen uses her love of France and French country cooking to infuse local dishes with a particularly European flavour. The food she cooks is not haute cuisine – you will not find in this book small portions of foreign dishes with strange ingredients. On the contrary, Marlene cooks South African food (and dishes up enough to satisfy a South African appetite), but with a rural french twist. Delectable contains over 80 recipes and more than twice as many photographs, showcasing the scenery of the french countryside, detail of ancient french villages, the colour and vitality of markets and antique fairs, and, of course, the food! Recipes are interspersed with little-known treasures from the South African wine industry, ensuring that your table is laid with the food and drink of the gods. And just like the recipes, the layout and format of the book are simple, sleek, and easy-to-use, and heavyweight art-coated paper has been used to ensure that the photographs depict the french countryside as vividly as possible.
