    Alexis Gauthier Vegetronic
    ISBN: 9781848093874
    Publication date: 01/03/2013

    Vegetronic will change the way you think about and cook vegetables and fruit ...and it's so easy. Michelin-starred chef, Master Chef judge and Saturday Kitchen regular Alexis Gauthier is not a vegetarian, but he knows how to create fabulous recipes where vegetables are the star turn. When Alexis Gauthier started his cooking apprenticeship, he was told that he should know every classic dish that made up French gastronomy, and in the process became just another recipe follower. Then in 1993 he entered the three-Michelin-starred kitchen of Alain Ducasse in the south of France and slowly rediscovered the fundamentals of cooking, learning to trust his instincts and intuition and opening up his mind to the possibilities of individual ingredients and combinations that enhance the depth of flavour of both ...and that is what Vegetronic is all about. Gauthier lovingly introduces each ingredient, saying what he likes about it, its season, its best partners, how his Provencal grandmother prepared it in her kitchen, and considers its health benefits. Each recipe is graded according to ease of preparation and execution (most are easy or medium). And, where appropriate, he suggests what to do with early- or late-in-the-season ingredients that may be over- or under-ripe - those unforgivably hard peaches, woody strawberries, and end-of-season broad beans and peas. Just a little of Alexis' knowledge will change your approach to and enjoyment of vegetables.

  • Backyard Chickens How to Keep Happy Hens
    Backyard Chickens How to Keep Happy Hens
    ISBN: 9781743367537
    Publication date: 01/02/2017

    A henkeeping companion to the bestselling Backyard Bees, covering everything you need to know about keeping chickens even in urban areas.

    Keeping a few hens was once only for rural dwellers with big yards - or inner-city hippies. Now it's mainstream and an attractive proposition wherever you live. Fluffy little recycling units that eat weeds, bugs and scraps and turn them into organic eggs - what's not to love? Chickens are great backyard pets for young and old - they're a natural extension for everyone with a vegie patch, and for those who like eggs but are concerned about the welfare of commercial hens. This book is the perfect reference, whether you're already keeping chickens or an absolute beginner thinking about getting a couple of chooks. Dave Ingham offers compulsively readable advice on how to start, housing and feeding, settling chickens in with other pets, troubleshooting, and the (minimal) commitment required to keep your backyard hens healthy and happy.

    'This book is the what for, how to, where and why of chickens for novices and wranglers alike.' - Costa Georgiadis, ABC Gardening Australia

  • Beans A History
    Beans A History
    ISBN: 9781350022270
    Publication date: 01/05/2017

    This is the story of the bean, the staple food cultivated by humans for over 10,000 years.

    From the lentil to the soybean, every civilization on the planet has cultivated its own species of bean. The humble bean has always attracted attention - from Pythagoras' notion that the bean hosted a human soul to St. Jerome's indictment against bean-eating in convents (because they "tickle the genitals"), to current research into the deadly toxins contained in the most commonly eaten beans.

    Over time, the bean has been both scorned as "poor man's meat" and praised as health-giving, even patriotic. Attitudes to this most basic of foodstuffs have always revealed a great deal about a society. Featuring a new preface from author Ken Albala, Beans: A History takes the reader on a fascinating journey across cuisines and cultures.

  • Brassicas Cooking the Worlds Healthiest Vegetables
    Brassicas Cooking the Worlds Healthiest Vegetables
    ISBN: 9781607745716
    Publication date: 01/04/2014

    A cookbook showcasing 80 recipes for the most popular of the world's healthiest vegetables--kale, cauliflower, broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage, leafy greens, and more--tailored to accommodate special diets such as gluten-free, dairy-free, vegetarian, and vegan. For a long time, brassicas had a mixed reputation. While a small group of people staunchly adored them, most Americans were not as fond of the vegetables formerly known as "cruciferous" (who doesn't remember a plate of stinky boiled cabbage or President Bush's condemnation of broccoli?). But in recent years, a transformation has occurred. Kale has taken the world by storm and there's hardly a restaurant left that doesn't have brussels sprouts on the menu. The rising popularity of brassicas is not only due to their extraordinary health benefits and "superfood" status, but also the realization that they can taste delicious when properly prepared. "Brassicas" shows home cooks how to bring out the flavors of these vegetables without death-by-boiling or burial under a blanket of cheese. When roasted, brassicas reveal an inherent sweetness. In a fresh salad or saute, they add a delightful peppery punch. Celebrating natural flavors rather than masking them, "Brassicas" both inspires cooks as well as arms them with appetizing new ways to increase their vegetable consumption.
