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. You'll find recipes for all the wonderful seasonal fruit that grows in this country, and learn how to make the most of fruit from other parts of the world.

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?'

Many people are intimidated at the idea of cooking Japanese food at home. But in JapanEasy, Tim Anderson reveals that many Japanese recipes require no specialist ingredients at all, and can in fact be whipped up with products found at your local supermarket. In fact, there are only seven essential ingredients required for the whole book: soy sauce, mirin, rice vinegar, dashi, sake, miso and rice. You don't need any special equipment, either. No sushi mat? No problem -- use just cling film and a tea towel! JapanEasy is designed to be an introduction to the world of Japanese cooking via some of its most accessible (but authentic) dishes. The recipes here do not 'cheat' in any way; there are no inadequate substitutions for obscure ingredients: this is the real deal. Tim starts with some basic sauces and marinades that any will easily 'Japanify' any meal, then moves onto favourites such as gyoza, sushi, yakiroti, ramen and tempura, and introduces readers to new dishes they will love. Try your hand at a range of croquettas, sukiyaki and a Japanese 'carbonara' that will change your life. Recipes are clearly explained and rated according to difficulty, making them easy to follow and even easier to get right. If you are looking for fun, simple, relatively quick yet delicious Japanese dishes that you can actually make on a regular basis - the search stops here.
