    Publication date: 01/06/2014

    Most people think about chillies in terms of heat and their capacity to blow one's head off. I think about how they can delicately pep up a pile of silky aubergines, perhaps already spiced with cardamom, cinnamon and faint dusting of cumin; how dark, tobacco-flavoured chillies can add deep mysterious tones to molten chocolate, how smoky chillies can add body to slow-cooked, unctuous stews, and how smoked, sweet peppers can add a note of earthiness to eggs, grilled flatbreads and sauteed greens. - Thomasina Miers Chillies can add excitement to the simplest, most frugal ingredients. Chilli Notes is full of recipes that excite and tantalise, comfort and warm. Forget food that will simply leave you gasping for air - this book aims to seduce the reader with the power of this humble fruit, even those who profess to loathe its long slow burn. Chilli Notes is packed with dishes that you can pull together on a weekday night with ingredients you have lying around. Without long lists of exotic ingredients to stand in your way, Chilli Notes will show you how the chilli can be your exotic bedfellow to add a wonderful, unusual note to your home-cooked family food.

    When the Chiltern Firehouse opened in 2013 it was an immediate success with the restaurant and chef Nuno Mendes’ menu at its heart. Lisbon-born, Mendes draws on influences from his career split between the United States and Europe to create contemporary recipes with an American accent. From the signature crab doughnuts to maple-glazed salmon and frozen apple panna cotta, Mendes delivers recipes of reimagined classics and bold new flavours.

    Chiltern Firehouse: The Cookbook brings together not just Nuno Mendes’ recipes; it also delves into the Firehouse’s love affair with cocktails and goes behind the scenes of the Chiltern Firehouse with exclusive photography and stunning design.

    ‘There is nowhere else in London, probably the world, where you ought to be’ Giles Coren, The Times

    'Nuno Mendes is a genius: forget everything else’ Zoe Williams, Telegraph

    ‘This is London's Best Restaurant. By any criterion you can think of it's one of the most enjoyable restaurant experiences we’ve had anywhere in the world’ Time Out London

    Named the top shopping destination in the United Kingdom outside of London, "Glasgow is a must-see destination...a mandatory stop on everyone's European travel itinerary" ("The Philadelphia Inquirer") and Edinburgh has long been considered one of the most hospitable cities in Europe. This book has eleven walks-seven in Edinburgh and four in Glasgow-taking shoppers to the most charming and unique stores in both cities, which are less than an hour away from each other by train. The shops included offer cashmere, hats, shoes, books, handcrafted soaps and natural botanicals inspired by Scotland (Treasure Island is a heady mix of musk, lemon, and cinnamon inspired by the Robert Louise Stevenson classic), single malt whiskies, purses, the best of British home design, and jewelry using Scottish gemstones. There are shops that specialize in traditional foods (farmhouse cheeses, toffee, shortbread, and lemon curd). There's a "glorious mess of an antique shop," a "kilt maker for the 21st century" who uses fabrics that range from denim to leather and whose customers include Sean Connery, and many more establishments, both new and historic. Old businesses aren't included simply for being old, but for continuing to offer goods of beauty and quality; new businesses are chosen because they operate in an old-fashioned way, with an emphasis on service and craftsmanship. Some are elegant and refined, some offer on quirky twists on classic themes, but each is stylish and without pretense. One shop owner says her boutique attracts the "discerning and determinedly different." The guide also includes restaurants, pubs, and cafes along the walks, and has an entire section devoted to the stunning tearooms of Charles Rennie Mackintosh and the Edinburgh farmer's market. Sumptuous color photos throughout give a sneak preview of the shops and their offerings, and the address, phone number, opening days and hours, and website of each establishment are included for extra convenience.

    The major Roman culinary text, "Apicius on Cookery", contains such dubious delicacies as larks tongue, sterile sows wombs, dormice; a plethora of birds, warblers, parrots, turtle doves, peacocks, flamingos; sea food such as sea urchins, porpoises, jellyfish. Other sources mention camel hoof and cockerel combs. They are all delightfully exotic and suit the stereotype of the decadent Roman gourmet who chose the most bizarre of foods because they were rare and expensive and fashionable, quite forgetting about taste. By contrast we have concentrated in this book on foods that are available in northern Europe and are worth the attention of a modern cook. "These recipes deserve to be used and are intended to be used". (Sally Grainger).
