    100 Ways With Eggs Boiled Baked Fried Scrambled and More!
    ISBN: 9781849757737
    Publication date: 01/11/2016

    With everything from breakfast using hens' eggs, salads and hashes with duck eggs or miniature baked or coddled quails' eggs to egg-based desserts and fresh egg-white cocktails, you'll know exactly how to cook and serve eggs in 100 Ways with Eggs.

    Eggs form part of our daily diet, whether as the mainstay of breakfasts, in salads, boiled and chopped or as mayonnaise dressings, or hot lunches like the quiches and frittatas, baked for dinner with North African spices or transformed into an array of sweet treats, such as meringues, souffles, cakes and custards. With the rise in popularity of high-protein diets and the irresistible ooze of just-cooked egg yolk, there's no doubt about it; we love eggs!

    The collection begins with step-by-step instructions for preparing eggs in a variety of ways. You'll learn to boil, poach, fry, scramble, coddle and bake eggs here, as well as add a few classic skills for separating and whisking yolks and whites (including rescuing that pesky broken egg shell from your mixture!), for making basic and flavoured mayonnaises and preserving eggs in pickles or liquors.

    Once you've mastered the Basics, the recipes are then organized by type of dish. Breakfasts and Brunches include Ham and Egg Quesadillas, Vietnamese Omelette and Breakfast Muffins; while Appetizers offers small plates to share or serve as a first course, such as Scotch Eggs, Arugula Soup with Poached Egg and Truffle Oil, and Coddled Quails' Eggs. Main Courses has a whole host of egg dishes to delight from simple Egg and Chips and Corn Beef Hash to more adventurous Korean Bibimbap or Turkish Menemen. Desserts features everything from Baked Alaska and Eton Mess to Chocolate Souffle and Victoria Sponge; and things really get interesting with a few egg-white cocktails and protein smoothies thrown in for good measure. You'll feel spoilt for choice with this eclectic collection of recipes that make the most of eggs.

    101 Meatballs and other Deliciously Spherical Recipes for Meat Fish and Vegetables
    ISBN: 9781849757744
    Publication date: 01/11/2016

    Who doesn’t love meatballs? They are the mouth-watering dish with endless incarnations around the world. This ultimate collection honours them all, from classically meaty to fish and vegetarian variations, fancy and teeny tiny to giant and rustic.

    They are the comforting meal so well-loved that each country has their own speciality and each family has a favorite recipe, often handed down through generations, whether an Italian Nona who made the best polpette or a Spanish Abuela who possessed the secret recipe for outstanding albondigas. Choose them broiled, fried, baked, braised, or steamed, they are always supremely tasty, and, luckily for cooks, nearly impossible to get wrong!

    101 Meatballs includes traditional favorites from around the world, organized into Beef, Pork, Lamb, Poultry, Fish, and Vegetable. Indeed, the word "meatball" is an ever-evolving concept. The defining feature need not be the nature of the "meat", but the way that a creative blend of spices and herbs can be combined and rolled together to create a perfectly textured mouthful bursting with flavor. This book certainly takes things one step further than bog-standard balls. Try the Crispy Duck Bon Bon, the Christmas Turkey Meatball or the Paleo Sweet Potato Kale Ball.

    The mother of versatile eke-out foods, meatballs can be plumped and improved with breadcrumbs, minced onion, eggs, cheese and many other components to make a little bit go a long way. No matter which side dish you happen to fancy, you can guarantee there will be a ball to suit it. Be it a packet of spaghetti and a spicy tomato sauce, mash and copious amounts of gravy, or a fresh and aromatic oriental soup. However you take your meatballs, you’ll find the perfect recipe here.

  • Appetites (Anthony Bourdain)
    Appetites (Anthony Bourdain)
    ISBN: 9781408883839
    Publication date: 26/10/2016

    Publication Date: Late October 2016
    Brash, wild, original and badass. This is Anthony Bourdain's interpretation of a normal cookbook.

    As a restaurant professional, Bourdain spent his life on the fringes of normality - he worked while normal people played, and played while normal people slept. Since then he has settled (kind of) into family life and is cooking for the people he loves rather than people who pay. These are the recipes he turns to when called in for pancake service at sleepover parties or when preparing a violence-free family dinner.

    Each and every word is informed by his years in the industry and a life dedicated to food. This is a man who has declared the club sandwich as America's Enemy and wants you to understand the principles of Bad Sandwich Theory. He has distilled his views on dessert to this: it should always be Stilton.

    Illustrated with photography that somehow manages to be both strangely beautiful and utterly grotesque, this cookbook - Bourdain's first in ten years - is a home-cooking, home-entertaining cookbook like no other.
