She runs the Cornersmith cafes, renowned for their big heart and strong conscience when it comes to sustainably sourced food. The Cornersmith answer to Hetty McKinnon's Community cookbook ... Food so delicious you won't notice there's no meat
    Make vegetables the hero of your plate.

    The Cornersmith way to eat is about bringing together a variety of deliciously simple elements. Make one or two vegetable dishes, open a jar of pickles or ferments, add a good loaf of bread and perhaps an easy protein - a great piece of cheese, some eggs, a slice of grilled meat or fish. No diets, no superfoods, no guilt... Just good food with more taste and the added benefit of cutting down food waste. From the award-winning Cornersmith cafes and Picklery comes the follow-up to their bestselling self-titled cookbook, with a focus on seasonal salads, pickles and preserving. Including dozens of simple ideas for fresh ingredients that might otherwise be thrown away, Cornersmith: Salads & Pickles is your handbook to putting vegetables at the centre of the way you eat.

    Alex teaches pickling and preserving workshops at the Cornersmith cooking school, the Picklery. She and her team of picklers, fermenters, cheesemakers, bread bakers and others have taught many hundreds of classes over the years.
    Sabine Spindler, known as the 'waste warrior', is head chef and chief salad creator at the Cornersmith cafes. Her experience working in fine dining restaurants in Europe left her shocked by the amount of good food that goes to waste on a daily basis in the hospitality industry.

    Voted #3 Worlds Best Restaurant 2019
    Victor Arginzoniz has achieved world fame as a grill genius with his restaurant Etxebarri, located in the farming community of Axpe, a tiny village nestled beneath mountains an hour's drive southeast of Bilbao. When he bought the restaurant building in the centre of the village more than twenty-five years ago, he and his family rebuilt it entirely themselves. He is self-taught and has only ever worked in one kitchen - his own - where he designed and built his famous adjustable-height grills. With no other reference than the oldest culinary technique in the world - fire - he grills using utensils designed by himself, uses specific woods and has an obsessive search for the best product, Arginzoniz has revolutionised the way people roast meat, fish or vegetables. He cooks everything over a grill - even dessert - so everything has a unique taste to it. Michelin awarded Asador Etxebarri a Michelin star in 2010, describing the food as 'an unadulterated pleasure for lovers of simply grilled and roasted dishes...' and he is ranked number 6 in the San Pellegrino World's 50 Best Restaurants 2017 and #3 in 2019. He rarely leaves the restaurant except to tend to his farm animals, which supply many of the raw ingredients for his tasting menu. This book describes the man, his kitchen and his recipes in words and stunning photography. Full colour throughout.

    Family food isn't fancy or complex. Its roots are humble, stemming from recipes passed on through generations, and food rituals born from daily cooking. Most importantly, great family recipes are ones that nurture our souls, our hearts and our tummies. Family food is comfort food. In Family, bestselling author Hetty McKinnon shares her approach to modern, uncomplicated, hearty and healthy food that is powered by vegetables. These classic recipes are the multicultural meals she serves around her own family table. Some are heirloom recipes passed on from her mother, others are old family favourites, and many are variations on much-loved comfort food, repackaged with a healthier outlook. This could be a deconstructed falafel salad of crispy roasted chickpeas and fresh greens, drizzled with lemony tahini; an oozy savoury cobbler of summer tomatoes topped with parmesan-cornmeal scones; or an earthy miso brown butter sauce spiked with crispy sage and tossed through your favourite pasta. Finish things off with a simple dessert of sticky banana golden syrup dumplings, an indulgent choc-orange self-saucing pudding, or an addictive lime pie with anzac biscuit crust - sweet treats that are destined to become new family favourites. These irresistible recipes are interlaced with tender family stories from home cooks around the world.

    How to make gut-friendly fermented foods by a wholefood pioneer.
    What does your favourite farmhouse cheese have in common with crusty sourdough bread, a glass of sparkling ginger beer or a bowl of marinated olives? The answer is each is a product of fermentation, a process that harnesses good bacteria in order to preserve ingredients and transform them into uniquely delicious foods with remarkable health benefits.

    Thanks to an increasing awareness of the crucial role probiotic-rich foods play in our wellbeing, the ancient art of fermentation is experiencing a renaissance. Add to this the joy, ease and economy of making fermented foods at home, and it's no wonder we are scrunching, pickling
    and bottling our way to better gut health and a deeper connection with our food.

    With this extensive collection, wholefood pioneer Holly Davis shares familiar and lesser-known recipes, as well as the wisdom and experience accumulated over 40 years of teaching fermentation techniques around the world. Her gentle and thorough guidance guarantees you will find a place in your home for one or more ferments that make your heart and stomach sing.

    In this lively and exceptionally enjoyable book, Niki Segnit takes 160 popular ingredients and explores all the ways they might be combined in the kitchen. She has scoured thousands of recipes in countless recipe books, talked to dozens of food technologists and chefs, and visited hundreds of restaurants - all in her quest for flavour pairings.
    The result is a unique book that is full of quirky observations, practical information (hundreds of recipes are embedded in the narrative) and good jokes.
    Here are a couple of randomly chosen entries: Celery and Dill: Like a couple of spry septuagenarians who still bother to find the right necklace for their frock, wear silver shoes to the theatre and are more than capable of a waspish, flirty conversation if given the attention they deserve. Come alive in the red-blooded company of beef, or more workaday tinned tuna, but left to their own devices can make a thrifty but classy soup.
    Coriander Leaf and Peanut: Substitute coriander and peanut for basil and pine nuts and you have a delicious Vietnamese-style take on pesto.
