    Big Fat Duck Boxed Limited Edition Slipcase
    ISBN: 9780747583691
    Publication date: 13/10/2008

    In this enormous, beautiful book, we hear the full story of the meteoric rise of Heston Blumenthal and The Fat Duck, birthplace of snail porridge and bacon-and-egg ice cream, and encounter the passion, perfection and weird science behind the man and the restaurant. Heston Blumenthal is widely acknowledged to be a genius, and The Fat Duck has twice been voted the Best Restaurant in the World by a peer group of top chefs.But he is entirely self-taught, and the story of his restaurant has broken every rule in the book. His success has been borne out of his pure obsession, endless invention and a childish curiosity into how things work - whether it's how smell affects taste, what different flavours mean to us on a biological level, or how temperature is distributed in the centre of a souffle.
    With an introduction by Harold McGee, incredible colour photographs throughout, illustrations by Dave McKean, multiple ribbons, real cloth binding and a gorgeous slip case, The Big Fat Duck Cookbook

    Squid-ink flatbreads with cod's roe, mapo tofu with hash browns and fried eggs, and foie gras and cherry doughnuts - it's thanks to chef Lee Tiernan's ability to fuse myriad on-trend tastes and underused ingredients with open-fire cooking techniques that Black Axe Mangal has quickly reached cult status.

    Established in 1994, St. JOHN has become renowned for its simplicity, its respect for quality ingredients and for being a pioneer in zero waste cooking - they strive to use every part of an ingredient, from leftover stale bread for puddings, bones for broths and stocks, to typically unused parts of the animal (such as the tongue) being made the hero of a dish.

    Braised rabbit, mustard and bacon
    Ox tongue, carrots and caper sauce
    Duck fat toast
    Smoked cod's roe, egg and potato cake
    Confit suckling pig shoulder and dandelion
    The Smithfield pickled cucumbers
    St. JOHN chutney
    Butterbean, rosemary and garlic wuzz
    Honey and bay rice pudding

    Featuring all the best-loved seminal recipes as well as comprehensive menus and wine recommendations, Fergus and Trevor will take a look back at the ethos and working practices of a food dynasty that has inspired a generation of chefs and home cooks.

    Publication date: 01/05/2010

    Canteen took the London restaurant scene by storm in 2005. Here was a restaurant serving proper British food - devilled kidneys on toast, potted duck, pork pies, and treacle tart - with passion and pride. Their no-nonsense, modern-meets-classic menu has brought good British cooking to the high street once more, and prompted the likes of Gordon Ramsay, Terence Conran and gastropubs around the country to follow suit. Unapologetically nostalgic, their first, much-anticipated cookbook is a splendidly comforting collection of 120 British dishes, including steak and kidney pie, Arbroath smokies, blackcurrant jelly with ice cream and shortbread, and rhubarb and almond trifle. Canteen is hugely popular with people of all ages, who just love good food. And with people keen to cook simple, economical and hearty family meals 'like Grandma used to make', Canteens modern classics could not be more timely. Featuring innovative design and photography, and traditional recipes that helped to make Britain great, Great British Food looks set to be the most talked-about cookbook of 2010.

  • Casa Moro
    Casa Moro
    ISBN: 9780091938536
    Publication date: 01/10/2011

    The Moro restaurant was born out of a desire to cook within the wonderful traditions of Spanish and North African food and to explore exotic flavours little known in the UK. It has established itself as one of the most talked about restaurants in the UK winning both the Time Out and BBC Good Food awards for Best New Restaurant when it opened in 1997. The Clarks' first book, "Moro: The Cookbook", has been a runaway success. Its passionate insight and strong culinary vision and ethos captured readers' imaginations. "Casa Moro", the second book from the Clarks, takes the range of flavours beyond those covered in their first. Sam and Sam have created fresh and dynamic dishes that reflect Moro's ever-changing menu ranging from Asparagus with parsley and almonds; Moroccan courgette salad; and Chicken with pine nuts, saffron and fino sherry to Chestnut, almond and chocolate cake. Yet "Casa Moro" is much more than a simple catalogue of recipes; it evokes Sam and Sam's extensive travels, their first discovery of Spain and Morocco and their house in the heart of Moorish Andalucia, taking the reader on a journey that resonates with delicious dishes, history and tradition. With an entire chapter dedicated to the ancient ways and cooking of Andalucia and, more specifically, the village in which Sam and Sam live, this personal, evocative account exudes romance and is written and designed with palpable excitement and elegance.

  • Change of Appetite
    Change of Appetite
    ISBN: 9781845337841
    Publication date: 01/04/2014

    What happened when one of today's best-loved food writers had a change of appetite? Here are the dishes that Diana Henry created when she started to crave a different kind of diet - less meat and heavy food; more dishes centred around vegetables, fish and grain - often inspired by the food of the Middle East and Far East, but also drawing on cuisines from Georgia to Scandinavia. Curious about what 'healthy eating' really means, and increasingly bombarded by both readers and friends for recipes that are 'good for you', Diana discovered a lighter, fresher way of eating. From a Cambodian salad of prawns, grapefruit, toasted coconut and mint, or a North African fish recipe with cumin to blood orange and cardamom sorbet, the magical dishes in this book are bursting with flavour, goodness and colour. Peppering the recipes is Diana's inimitable writing on everything from the miracle of broth to the great carbohydrate debate. Above all, this is about opening up our palates to new possibilities. There is no austerity here, simply fabulous food which nourishes body and soul.
