Missy Robbins had been on an upward trajectory through the ranks of chefdom, racking up accolades in Chicago at Spiaggia and in New York as the executive chef of A Voce Madison and A Voce Columbus, both of which earned Michelin stars under her leadership. But success in the grueling world of restaurant cooking took a toll, in sacrifices of time, health, and relationships. So in 2013 Robbins hung up the title of executive chef to explore life outside of the restaurant. This book is a result of that year off: A collection of recipes that Robbins created in her tiny West Village kitchen while she rediscovered life outside of the restaurant world. These dishes, organized around essays narrating her year off, will help readers fall in love with cooking again, as Robbins did. In addition to pasta and the Italian-inspired dishes that Robbins is known for, there are her childhood favorites, such as chicken soup with ricotta dumplings, and breakfast, vegetable, and salad recipes, resulting from Robbins s commitment to healthier eating habits; there is also a chapter of Asian recipes, inspired by a long-wished-for trip to Vietnam and Thailand. Intimate, engaging, and filled with Robbins s signature thoughtful, ingredient-driven cooking, this cookbook gives readers the secrets to delicious and varied home cooking within a poignant story of self-discovery.

Mauritius is a melting pot of cultures and Shelina's food reflects that, encompassing Creole, French, Indian, African, British and Chinese influences.

The island's French heritage can be seen in classic Mauritian dishes such as Lamb 'La Daube', aubergine toufe and king prawn rougaille. Many of the curries, pulses and rice dishes are vegetarian and gluten-free. Plus, from the 'Mango Queen', there are enticing desserts including mango creme brulee and spiced tea rum baba. "Sunshine on a Plate" showcases the food of this beautiful island in Shelina's unique home cooking.

"Readers interested in exploring different cuisines can find a taste of France and Vietnam in Luke Nguyen's France" - Jackie Tang, Books and Publishing "A regional affair, France takes you on a gastronomic journey - think classic recipes such as bouillabaisse and galette, intertwined with fresh Vietnamese favourites that make heroes of the region they represent." - MiNDFOOD "There's a sense of joy in the author's voyage of discovery that translates, and there's plenty here you'd want to cook at home." - John Lethlean, Weekend Australian "The French have a saying when something appeals visually, translating as "a pleasure to the eye". This book is that and far more." - Christopher Bantick, Weekly Times
Mary Berry is one of our most-loved cookery writers and presenters, but few people know the professional and personal story behind her success. In this charming and life-affirming autobiography, you'll discover the highs and lows of her remarkable life . . . From the moment she came into the world - two weeks early, throwing her parents' lives into disarray - Mary has gracefully but firmly done things her own way. Born in 1935, in the city of Bath, Mary's childhood was a curious mix of idyllic picnics and ramblings, and alarming air raids; of a spirited and outdoorsy home life and a dreaded school existence. All nearly cut horribly short by an almost fatal bout of polio when she was thirteen, which isolated Mary in hospital, away from beloved family and friends for months. Recovery saw her turn to her one true passion - cookery. And so began a love affair that has spanned six remarkable decades; from demonstrating ovens in the early 1950s to producing glossy food magazines in the 60s and 70s, gradually becoming the country's most prolific and - many would say - best loved cookery writer. Until her emergence in the 21st century as a TV sensation and style icon on the Great British Bake Off. In this touching, evocative and fascinating memoir, we accompany Mary on her journey of nearly eighty years; a life lived to the full, with a wicked sense of fun and an eye for the absurd, it is the life of a delightfully traditional but thoroughly modern woman.
Vegetarian cookery, once associated with the East, is now a firmly established part of our Western culture and eating habits. As meat-free cooking has grown in popularity and sophistication, we have borrowed a whole range of techniques and ideas from various cultures, creating an exciting new tradition of globally influenced vegetarian cuisine. Rather than approaching vegetarianism from a dry, didactic standpoint, this book takes as its starting point the principle that vegetarian cooking is one of the most interesting, dynamic areas in food today and provides a collection of the very best recipes the world's various cuisines have to offer.
Chapter to chapter the book focuses on different ingredients, from vegetables and grains to pulses and dairy products, providing fascinating information about less familiar ingredients, such as wild rice or the many new kinds of salad leaves available. Over 500 recipes draw on the whole world for their inspiration, from Thailand to Tunisia, from the Mediterranean to Mexico. Throughout Madhur Jaffrey's renowned talent for informing and inspiring her audience is apparent, and her own personal anecdotes and stories set the recipes in context. A book set to be on kitchen shelves for many, many years to come.

No kitchen dramas or barbecue fails ever again. Just perfectly cooked meat. OFM award-winner Neil Rankin knows how to cook meat. In this book he explains how he does it, using the foolproof methods he has honed to perfection and relies on in the kitchens of Temper in London. "If you have ever cooked a steak medium-well instead of medium-rare, a chicken that ends up dry, a stew that's tough or stringy or a rack of ribs that fall too much off the bone then this book will make your life that little bit better." Neil Rankin 'You've cost me a bloody fortune. Steak on four nights...Perfect every time. My boys - steak mad - are so happy.' Diana Henry 'Simply put: Rankin's book will make you 100% more brilliant behind the stove.' Grace Dent 'The first time I ate Neil's food, I was blown away' Tom Kerridge 'Fire-cooking is unavoidably tactile 'real' cooking and Neil is one of the heroes leading the charge. He eschews sterility and embraces flame.' Adam Perry Lang 'Meat hates to be overcooked, says Neil, so low and slow is the way to go which obviates brining, resting, letting joints come to room temperature and other shibboleths learned at our mothers' knee. There is a great deal useful and inspiring to be absorbed here from a battle-scarred Scotsman in a trucker's cap... and tongs as an extension of his fingers.' Fay Maschler 'Without any doubts the best meat/bbq book I've read! Everything about it is just spot on.' @artisanbaker 'The book is fantastic. Managed not to overcook a beef joint for the first time ever!' @KungFuBBQ

"In this outstanding memoir, chef and restaurateur Matsuhisa...shares lessons in humility, gratitude, and empathy that will stick with readers long after they've finished the final chapter." -Publishers Weekly (starred review) A fascinating and unique memoir by the acclaimed celebrity chef and international restaurateur, Nobu, as he divulges both his dramatic life story and reflects on the philosophy and passion that has made him one of the world's most widely respected Japanese fusion culinary artists. Nobu needs no introduction. One of the world's most widely acclaimed restaurateurs, his influence on food and hospitality can be found at the highest levels of haute-cuisine to the food trucks you frequent during the work week-this is the Nobu that the public knows. But now, we are finally introduced to the private Nobu: the man who failed three times before starting the restaurant that would grow into an empire; the man who credits the love and support of his wife and children as the only thing keeping him from committing suicide when his first restaurant burned down; and the man who values the busboy who makes sure each glass is crystal clear as highly as the chef who slices the fish for Omakase perfectly. What makes Nobu special, and what made him famous, is the spirit of what exists on these pages. He has the traditional Japanese perspective that there is great pride to be found in every element of doing a job well-no matter how humble that job is. Furthermore, he shows us repeatedly that success is as much about perseverance in the face of adversity as it is about innate talent. Not just for serious foodies, this inspiring memoir is perfect for fans of Marie Kondo's The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up and Danny Meyer's Setting the Table. Nobu's writing does what he does best-it marries the philosophies of East and West to create something entirely new and remarkable.

Fruit is pretty much the perfect food: bountiful, delicious and colourful, it also helps us to fight infection, stresses and strains. But why are we still a nation that thinks it's a bit racy to slice a banana onto our cornflakes in the morning? A 'piece of fruit' in a lunch box, on the breakfast table or at the end of a meal is all very well, but fruit is so much more exciting than this, and we don't eat nearly enough of the stuff. Perhaps this is because we don't always understand how to use it in our cooking, or how to choose the best fruit for the season. Hugh sets out to address this head on. With 180 delicious recipes, River Cottage Fruit Every Day! will show you how to enjoy a broader eating experience and make fruit easy, fun and irresistible.

For the past 5 years, Fay Ripley has been cooking for her growing family. Spurred on by the lack of inspiration out there, she has written this cookbook full of recipes for all the family. The vital ingredient is that you only need to cook one meal. She was fed up of having to cook separately for her 1-year-old, then having to knock up something for her 5-year-old and then, with the kids in bed, finally think about cooking something to enjoy with her husband. So she started working out meals that all of them could eat together - not separate ingredients, age dependent. This book offers suggestions and inspiration to feed your family. It's there to get you in the swing so that you can find 15 minutes to knock up something that you're proud to see them eat. The idea is to cook food that you can remove your babies' and kids' portions from, before adding the more challenging ingredients for yourselves. In Fay's words: 'I am living this. It's easy. I've kept it simple. Sometimes I get it wrong. Sometimes I have to throw pans away (multi-tasking can lead to burnt food). But the Italians do it. So why can't we?'
