Good Food to Fight Migraine by Hilda Cherry Hills (£54.00)Publisher: Roberts Publications — 1979Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0906185092]Condition: Good. A pleasant enough reading copy. Gently rubbed at the edges of the spine and wraps. Small mark to the upper wrap. Edges of the text block lightly spotted. Text complete, clean and tight but a little age-tanned.Description: First in this, paperback, edition. From the introduction: “Since one in every five families throughout the world will have an inherited migraine problem which will be most probably related to a family history of asthma, hay fever, eczema, epilepsy, coeliac disease, urticaria, schizophrenia — all of which can be related to food sensitivity, one can only feel the deepest gratitude to Mrs. Cherry Hills for her authoritative expertise in producing such an invaluable guide to happy eating for the vast numbers of migraine sufferers. Her book represents a unique and historical contribution to the alleviation of migraine attacks for those millions of victims who have the determination and pain-induced motivation to seek a simple and commonsense means of reducing their episodes of agonising prostration which so few employers, partners or relatives even begin to understand. Modern science, it seems, is quite unable at this stage to guarantee the control of every devastating migraine attack, but the simple observation of Mrs. Hills’s suggestions in this excellent treatise will add years of attack-free days for all who follow her inspired advice.”Notes: Foreword or introduction by P. Wilson. Size: C Format (8½" x 5¼"). 173 pages.

Dough: Simple Contemporary Bread by Richard Bertinet (£42.00)Publisher: Kyle Cathie — 2008Binding: Paperback Signed by the Author.[ISBN: 1856267628]Condition: Very Good+. Includes a pristine in appearance DVD to the reverse of the upper wrapper. This is untested and unwarranted. Text complete, clean and tight. A nice copy.Description: Signed by the author on the title page — unverified and reflected as such in the lack of premium. Illustrated with colour photographs. From the cover: “This award-winning book is an invaluable and beautiful guide on how to make simple contemporary bread. Richard Bertinet brings back the fun to breadmaking with his practical and easy approach so you will never want to buy a supermarket loaf again. He uses a method of ‘working’ the dough rather than ‘kneading’ it, allowing air and therefore lightness to prevail so you don’t create that well-known home-made brick bread.

The five chapters start with a basic bread — White, Olive Oil, Brown, Rye and Sweet — and from this ‘parent’ dough you can bake a vast variety of breads really easily. There are breads for every occasion — bake a pile of scones for tea, make pizza dough with the kids or friends, impress your guests with puff balls for supper, knock up a tantalising focaccia for an informal lunch or treat yourself to a honey and lavender loaf for breakfast — the choices are endless as once you’ve mastered a ‘parent’ dough you can experiment with your own favourite flavours.

Making any of these imaginative breads is bound to lighten your mood and brighten your meal.”

It contains an enormous amount of information to help people live, in Isabella Beeton’s own words, economically, tastefully and well. Her style, imparting information as clearly and simply as possible, was hugely influential. The book sold 60,000 copies in its first year, but Isabella Beeton died four years later, in 1865, aged just twenty-eight. The enduring popularity of Mrs Beeton’s Book of Household Management is testament to the quality of her advice.”

From the cover: “A love of eating food must include an awareness of how that food is grown, and a love of growing food must include an active interest in how best to cook it. This is the philosophy running through every page of Fork to Fork.

More than just another gardening book, or variation of a cook book, Fork to Fork celebrates the vital link between growing, cooking and eating food. For Monty and Sarah Don, the process of preparing a meal begins with thinking about what seeds to buy. Food is grown and cooked in one continuous process and with one common aim — enjoyment.

This highly original book contains clear and detailed instruction on how to cultivate and cook a wide range of vegetables, herbs and fruits. Firmly rooted in the real experience of the authors and accompanied by photographs that record a year in their own kitchen and kitchen garden, it aims to inspire food lovers to integrate their gardens and kitchens wherever they live and whatever their taste in food, as well as promoting a timely and appealing style of living.”

Gently faded at the spine. Offset from the frontis on the title page. Text bright and tight otherwise.Description: Recipes by The Scotto Sisters. From the introduction: “French cuisine has influenced every Western cuisine, to the extent that it has become an international symbol of prestige and quality. This grand culinary tradition, many centuries old, is an integral part of our culture. But by what route did France become the cradle of gastronomy? Certainly, this magnificent country is blessed with one of the most temperate of climates and an extraordinary abundance and diversity of produce from its different regions. But the existence of one of the world’s greatest gastronomies cannot be explained simply by the presence of fine produce; it needs its practitioners. Many people through the centuries have helped effect a slow transformation, and forged the characteristics of a tradition of fine cooking and eating that continues to evolve today.” Pictorial boards.Notes: Size: 13½" x 9¾". 256 pages.

A Second Slice: An anthology by Arabella Boxer (£26.00)Publisher: Nelson — 1966Binding: Hardback in Slipcase First Edition. [ISBN: B0000CN6CD]Condition: Good+ - in Poor DJ. Slipcase rubbed and somewhat soiled. Boards a little rubbed at extremities. Text bright and tight if very slightly and lightly spotted in places.Description: Ringbound with 3-piece layout offering individual views of Soups and Hors d'oeuvre, Main Dishes and Sweets and Savouries. The emphasis in this book seems to be towards the neglected English food of the twenties and Thirties, particularly the recipes of Lady Jekyll, Lady Sysonby and Nancy Shaw. This sort of cooking appears to have a character all its own, and owes nothing to French or Italian cuisine. If anything, it is closer to the best sort of American home cooking - a sophisticated form of nursery food. This kind of food was forgotten during the long years of rationing; and the discovery of Mediterranean cooking after the war seems to have dominated cooking both in restaurants and in the home.Notes: Size: 11¾" x 8". 174 pages.

A Household Legacy: With Recipes from the Brewhouse Traditional and Wholefood Company by Amanda Goodfellow (£24.00)Publisher: Brewhouse — 1989Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0951491105]Condition: Very Good. Gently rubbed at the edges of the spine and wrappers, which are slightly sunned. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: First in this, paperback, edition. From the cover: “A Household Legacy is more than a cookery book, though it contains a good six hundred recipes, for everything from bread and soup to Christmas fare. It is the distillation of thirty years experience of growing, preparing and cooking food, during which the author has become increasingly conscious of the relation between diet and health and increasingly convinced that the quality of ingredients is the essential clue to good food and positive health.

In 1976 Amanda Goodfellow moved to an old house in the country, near Saffron Walden, Essex. In addition to a large kitchen garden, cultivated on organic principles, she kept chickens, ducks, geese, bees, a small flock of Jacob sheep and the occasional bullock. She worked for a time as assistant editor on the smallholders’ magazine Practical Self Sufficiency (now Home Farm) and then ran for six years a shop in the old brewhouse, next to her house, selling wholefoods, her own honey, preserves and free range eggs, muesli and granola made up to her own recipes and fresh herbs from the garden.

Much of what she learned, especially from those of her customers who had dietary problems, is reflected in this book..”

Asian Cooking: Recipes from the Far East by Edited by Lydia Darbyshire (£23.50)Publisher: Colour Library Books — 1999Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 1841001201]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper.Description: From the cover: “The cuisines of Southeast Asia have enjoyed a boom in recent years, with Thai cooking currently rating as the most popular ethnic cuisine worldwide. This new-found interest is hardly surprising given the vast geographical area encompassed, and therefore the immense wealth and diversity of cooking styles on offer.

Asian Cooking brings together dishes from Vietnam, where the cuisine is a subtle blend of Chinese, Thai and French cuisines, from Thailand and Korea, from the four major regions of China and from Japan. The result is an irresistible collection of ideas for cooking with rice and noodles, using fresh meat and fish, and blending herbs and spices to create the subtle flavours that dominate the Orient.

There is an informative section describing the few essential tools and utensils required, and explaining the basic techniques and cooking methods which can be used to bring out the best in a wide variety of raw ingredients. There is also a full glossary of ingredients together with suggestions for suitable alternatives.

With over 400 recipes this book offers a comprehensive overview of the cuisines featured, with recipes for special occasions, as well as one-pot wonders for one or two people. In each case the emphasis is on providing recipes for authentic, easily-prepared recipes for all occasions.”

Touristic Guide Of Lebanon by Emir Gilbert Chehab (£23.00)Publisher: Ghassibe & Berbarry — UndatedBinding: Paperback Condition: Good. A pleasant enough reading copy. A slightly dog-eared copy with some toning to the margins of the leaves. Binding weakening at the rear. Promotional, ribboned, bookmark included.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs & maps. From the cover: “Lebanon’s name derives from the Aramaic word (Loubnane) which means white. White like its mountains and peaks covered with snow. With its 10452 square kilometres, Lebanon is as “big” as a French department and slightly bigger than Cyprus. But what distinguishes this country from the neighbouring ones is its climate, vegetation and aspect. You need one hour on the road (a bit more with traffic jams) to leave the coast where you could swim in the blue waters and reach Faraya the famous ski station and ski down its snowy slopes. The sight of how many caves, valleys, plains and headlands meet your eyes while driving throughout this country! The bible mentioned “Lebanon” many times and according to some Lebanese chauvinists the earthly paradises resided here, others called it the country of the Dolce Vita, while others called its capital Beirut the small Paris. In this country of free exchange, you could, without any restriction and without paying any commission, change your money into the currency you choose. Bank secrecy being the most developed, you could make all stock market transactions without control or supervision, even justice could not interfere to inquire about your transactions or accounts without your approval. An important characteristic is that the Lebanese citizen cares for the tourist, is hospitable, ready to be useful and will even travel voluntarily to show you a place or welcomes you in his house for coffee and provides you the information you seek. Visit Lebanon and you will be pleasantly satisfied.”Notes: Size: 8¾" x 5¾". 215 pages.

The New Sotheby's Wine Encyclopedia by Tom Stevenson (£21.00)Publisher: London: Dorling Kindersley — 1997Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0751303135]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper with heavier wear to the bottom tips and the tail of the spine. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Colour Photographs; Maps; Tables;

From the cover: “Authoritative, international and up-to-date, The New Sotheby’s Wine Encyclopedia is arranged geographically and combines nearly 100 detailed maps with information on all wine-growing areas, profiles of top producers and assessments of individual wines. The book’s easy-reference style coupled with its huge breadth of information, makes it an unrivalled source of wine information for both beginners and buffs.

Wines Of The World:Taking each winemaking country in turn, Tom Stevenson examines its viticultural history, its wine-producing regions and the current reputation of its wines. He analyzes the factors affecting the taste and quality of each region’s wines — location, aspect, soil, microclimates, grape varieties and methods of viticulture and vinification — before assessing its appellations, then individual wine producers (chateaux or wineries) and, of course, the wines themselves.

Enjoying Wine: Tom Stevenson provides practical guidelines on wine tasting, while an “author’s choice” chart at the end of each section lists the very best wines. A star-rating system identifies the finest producers, and highlights those offering the best value. A “taste chart” explains how to identify the flavours in a wine and a “trouble-shooter’s guide” spots common wine faults.

Whether you are a newcomer wanting to explore the pleasures of wine or a wine enthusiast looking for inspiration, The New Sotheby’s Wine Encyclopedia is the book to consult again and again. .”

Small mark to the leading edge of the text block. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: From the cover: “The cuisines of Southeast Asia have enjoyed a boom in recent years, with Thai cooking currently rating as the most popular ethnic cuisine worldwide. This new-found interest is hardly surprising given the vast geographical area encompassed, and therefore the immense wealth and diversity of cooking styles on offer.

Asian Cooking brings together dishes from Vietnam, where the cuisine is a subtle blend of Chinese, Thai and French cuisines, from Thailand and Korea, from the four major regions of China and from Japan. The result is an irresistible collection of ideas for cooking with rice and noodles, using fresh meat and fish, and blending herbs and spices to create the subtle flavours that dominate the Orient.

There is an informative section describing the few essential tools and utensils required, and explaining the basic techniques and cooking methods which can be used to bring out the best in a wide variety of raw ingredients. There is also a full glossary of ingredients together with suggestions for suitable alternatives.

With over 400 recipes this book offers a comprehensive overview of the cuisines featured, with recipes for special occasions, as well as one-pot wonders for one or two people. In each case the emphasis is on providing recipes for authentic, easily-prepared recipes for all occasions.”

The Practical Daily Menu: Suggestions and Recipes For 365 Breakfasts, 365 Dinners, 365 Suppers by Christina B. Peacock (£19.50)Publisher: W. & R. Chambers — 1926Binding: Hardback Condition: Poor. Heavily bruised at the head, tail and corners of the boards with fraying at the spine ends. Shaken, with the hinge split at the first blank. Pages lightly age-tanned, but tight. Description: From the preface: “EVERY housewife has felt the urgency of the ever-recurring query, ‘What shall we have for breakfast, for dinner, for supper?’ In these days when the cost of living has risen so considerably, curtailing all expenditures that verge on luxury, the difficulty of answering the question in a variety of ways has greatly increased. This book has been compiled in the hope that it may afford a solution to a difficult problem which confronts the housekeeper daily, as well as the belief that it is possible to provide a constantly changing menu at a reasonable cost.

Special emphasis has been laid on two points. First, that different seasons demand different fare. Second, that food not entirely consumed at one meal can be palatably and attractively prepared for a succeeding one. The recognition of these two points makes possible abundant variety with a maximum of economy.

The contents of this book are the fruit of a fairly long experience in practical cookery, and every recipe has been tried and proven satisfactory on many occasions.

For the classification of the dishes and the arrangement of the menus the writer is also responsible.”

Very small nick to the tail of the spine. Price Clipped. Previous owners inscription to ½-title page.Description: Illustrated with colour photographs. From the cover: “The cuisine of Bruno Loubet finds its roots in the cuisine du terroir (literally ‘food of the earth’) of his native Aquitaine, and much of his inspiration comes from his grandmother’s repertoire. The dishes range from such traditional French fare as lamb en croûte in herbs to some more unusual creations; they are always classical and accessible, and yet surprisingly eclectic in their borrowings from other culinary traditions including Italian, Indian and Southeast Asian. Loubet roasts onions in ginger, bakes trout fillets in chilli and lemon grass, regularly uses cardamom, sun-dried tomatoes, and pasta, risotto and polenta garnishes. The results are consistently appealing.”Notes: Size: 10" x 7½". Green boards with Gilt titling to the Spine. 160 pages.

Kitchen: Recipes from the Heart of the Home by Nigella Lawson (£19.00)Publisher: London: Chatto & Windus — 2010Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 9780701184605]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Description: Contains: Ribbon markers [1]; Colour photographs; Photographic end papers & blanks;

From the cover: “Compendious, informative and engaging, Kitchen offers feel-good food for cooks and eaters that is comforting but always seductive, nostalgic but with a modern twist — whether express-way easy-exotic recipes for the weekday rush, leisurely slow-cook dishes for weekends and special occasions, or irresistible cakes and cookies in true “domestic goddess” style. It answers everyday cooking quandaries — what to give the kids for tea, how to rustle up a meal for friends or an impromptu kitchen party in moments, or what to do about those black bananas, wrinkled apples and bullet-hard plums — and since real cooking is so often about leftovers, here one recipe can morph into another… from ham hocks to pea soup and pasties, from braised chicken to Chinatown salad. This isn’t just about being thrifty but about being creative and seeing how recipes evolve.

As well as offering the reader a mouth-watering array of inspired new recipes — from clams with chorizo to Guinness gingerbread, from Asian braised beef to flourless chocolate lime cake, from pasta alia Genovese to Venetian carrot cake — Nigella rounds up her no-nonsense kitchen kit must-haves (and, crucially, what isn’t needed) in the way of equipment and magical standby ingredients. But above all, she reminds the reader how much pleasure there is to be had in real food and in reclaiming the traditional rhythms of the kitchen, as she cooks to the beat of the heart of the home, creating simple, delicious recipes to make life less complicated.

The expansive, lively narrative, with its rich feast of food, makes this new work a natural 21st-century successor to Nigella’s classic How To Eat, this time with a wealth of photographs from the instructive to the glorious, and accompanied by a BBC TV series.”

Paul Heathcote's Rhubarb and Black Pudding by Matthew Fort (£19.00)Publisher: Fourth Estate — 1998Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1857025008]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper. Leans slightly. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Photographs;

From the cover: “Paul Heathcote is a phenomenon even among the elite band of Britain’s master chefs. Not only has he resolutely stayed put in his native Lancashire to become one of the few Michelin-starred English chefs north of Watford, but he has also achieved this while pioneering his own special brand of haute cuisine, which is quite distinctively British, if not English — even Lancastrian.

Deconstructing and elevating traditional dishes like black pudding, roast duckling with mead, pig’s trotters stuffed with ham hock, apple crumble soufflé and deep-fried Stilton fritters, Heathcote has created the sort of cuisine du terroir so characteristic of the great French chefs but hitherto virtually unknown amongst their British counterparts.

In Rhubarb & Black Pudding, Paul Heathcote and award-winning food writer Matthew Fort have gathered together the best of Heathcote’s recipes. Arranged by seasons, they include dishes as varied as Pressed Ham Terrine; Fillet of Red Bream Marinated in Whisky and Dill; Roast Rack of Spring Lamb with Hot-pot Potatoes, Braised Lentils, Roast Shallots and Rosemary Juice; Compote of Caramelized Rhubarb with Elderflower Cream; and Creamed Rice Pudding Scented with Hazelnut. Matthew’s colourful introductions to each section also vividly convey the changing seasonal landscape and the creative processes as they unfold in the kitchen.

With stunning colour photography of the food, clear black-and-white reportage of the kitchens and evocative landscapes of the Ribble Valley through the changing seasons, Rhubarb & Black Pudding provides a unique picture of a great chef at work.”

Description: Illustrated with line drawings.

From the cover: “Gourmet cooking demands the best ingredients. This directory of more than a thousand shops and farms tells you where to get the very best in food throughout Great Britain.

The greengrocer who knows his produce and respects its season, the butcher, the fishmonger and the other knowledgeable small retailers are a rare species, elusive and in many places nearly extinct. The Gourmet’s Directory aims to put you back in touch with these specialist suppliers so that you can experiment and expand the range of your cooking without the frustrations of supermarket shopping.

British food has always had a great range of regional dishes which owe their origin and development to the natural produce of the region. The articles which preface each section of the directory highlight many of these and demonstrate that the tastes and foods that we enjoy are part of a long history, a process to be appreciated and respected and not lightly dismissed in the headlong rush towards standardisation.”

I have converted many conservative fish eaters to a ceviche or a delicate fish soup, and some have thereafter become dedicated fish lovers too; That is what I would like to achieve with this book. I hope that everyone who reads it will reach a better understanding of fish, and therefore become more familiar with it.
