Coming late September - the hardback edition of Historic Heston (also available as limited edition format hb $299) Winner of Three James Beard AwardsCookbook of the YearCooking from a Professional Point of Viewand PhotographyBritish gastronomy has a grand old tradition that has been lost over time. Now our most inventive chef is out to reclaim it. Heston Blumenthal, whose name is synonymous with cutting-edge cuisine, still finds his greatest source of inspiration in the unique and delicious food that our sceptered isle once produced. This has been the secret to his success at world-famous restaurants The Fat Duck and Dinner, where a contrast between old and new, modern and historic, is key."Historic Heston" charts a quest for identity through the best of British cooking that stretches from medieval to late-Victorian recipes. Start with twenty-eight historic dishes, take them apart, put them together again and what have you got? A sublime twenty-first-century take on delicacies including meat fruit (1500), quaking pudding (1660) and mock turtle soup (1892). Heston examines the history behind each one's invention and the science that makes it work. He puts these dishes in their social context and follows obscure culinary trails, ferreting out such curious sources as "The Queen-like Closet "from 1672 (which offers an excellent method for drying goose). What it adds up to is an idiosyncratic culinary history of Britain.This glorious book also gives a unique insight into the way that Heston works, with signature dishes from both The Fat Duck and the double Michelin-starred Dinner, which is ranked 7th in the World's 50 Best Restaurants. With a beautiful cover illustrated by the genius that is Dave McKean, his illustrations throughout, and some of the most superb food photography you'll ever see, Historic Heston is a book to treasure. You think you know about British cooking? Think again.

Occupying an edgy urban space in London's Fitzrovia, Dabbous is the restaurant that has stunned critics and diners since it opened in 2012. Behind the sheet metal door, chef Ollie Dabbous creates light, modern dishes that are both sophisticated and deceptively delicate; jewel-like creations that are in stark contrast with the restaurant's industrial dcor. 'Spring' includes 'Mixed alliums in a chilled pine infusion' and 'Braised halibut with pink purslane and celery', whilst 'Summer' features 'Ripe avocado with osmantus' and 'Elderflower sherbet'. In 'Autumn' there is 'Chocolate and hazelnut ganache with basil moss and sheep's milk sorbet' and 'Winter' boasts 'Coddled hen's egg with smoked butter and mushrooms', 'Mash and gravy', and 'Fresh milk curds with birch sap and grilled chestnuts'. Dabbous is closely aligned with the ethos of the restaurant: stripped-down and pure, with exquisite photographs of each dish taken by Joakim Blockstrom. As the distillation of Ollie Dabbous' creativity, it is without doubt the most desirable cookery book of the year.
Ollie Dabbous knew he wanted to be a chef from the age of six, and started cooking in restaurants when he was 15. He worked at Kensington Place for Rowley Leigh and for Guy Savoy in Paris. He spent time with Ren Redzepi at Noma and with Heston Blumenthal at The Fat Duck, but it was his years spent working with Raymond Blanc at Le Manoir aux Quat' Saisons that most profoundly influenced his cooking. He went on to be head chef at the Scandinavian-influenced Texture on Portman Street. In January 2012 he opened Dabbous to rapturous reviews, and it has already been awarded a Michelin star.@DabbousLondon / dabbous.co.uk

Sweet Envy is an old-fashioned sweet parlour, cake shop and bakehouse rolled into one destination of deliciousness in Hobart, Tasmania, and run by acclaimed pastry-chef Alistair Wise and his wife and business partner Teena.The recipes in this book are a snapshot -- a slice in time -- of the expert artisan produce of Sweet Envy: from pork & harissa sausage rolls and sticky pecan buns, to the perfect croissant, or a seriously haute-couture cake with lashings of buttery icing.Within these pages are over one hundred fabulous recipes for pastries, both savoury and sweet, desserts, tarts, old-fashioned sweets, biscuits, cupcakes, gorgeous celebration cakes and ice cream to drool over (you'll want to lick the page, seriously).The authors have worked in some of the most prestigious pastry kitchens and restaurants in the world, so these recipes are packed with the ancient wisdoms of professional pastry-chef experience. As well as this, their hilarious anecdotes and wry observations of community life among Hobart's farmers, foodies and friends, provide a refreshing and somewhat anarchic sense of humour not usually associated with the sweet art of baking.
Alistair and Teena grew up and completed their pasty and bakery apprenticeship in Hobart, Tasmania. They went on to work in top restaurants in Melbourne, London and New York. In London, Alistair ran Gordon Ramsay's pastry kitchen at The Connaught alongside Angela Harnett; in New York, he worked at Gordon Ramsay at The London, which won Best Bon Bon Trolley on numerous occasions; Teena worked at The Greenhouse in London's Mayfair under an Bjorn van der Horst and then moved on to couture cakes to refine her skills as a cake designer. Now based back in Tasmania, Alistair and Teena have brought to life their own food destination, a specialised bakery in North Hobart, offering old-time sweets and confections lovingly crafted in small batches.

Who can resist the addictive combination of crisp baguette, succulent fillings (such as grilled pork, roast chicken, or "the special," which is loaded with garlicky pork liver pt and thin slices of Vietnamese cold-cuts) and toppings (like tangy daikon and carrot pickles, thin chile slices, refreshing cucumber strips, and pungent cilantro sprigs)?

Respected food writer Andrea Nguyen's simple recipes for proteins, condiments, pickles, and more are a great introduction for those looking to venture into Vietnamese cuisine but who are intimidated by complicated recipes.
