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.

Very small nick to the tail of the spine. Price Clipped. Previous owners inscription to ½-title page.Description: Illustrated with colour photographs.

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.

Prepare his Salad of Seared Tuna with a Sauté of Treviso, for example, and follow his unique technique for caramelising bitter leaves.

For convenient reference, recipes are arranged according to the type of food: fish, poultry and game, meat, vegetables and salads, fruit etc, and many of the finished dishes are featured in superb, full page photographs. To ensure that the recipes are suitable for the home cook, all of the recipes have been carefully tested in a domestic kitchen. But in addition many of the prepare-ahead and time-saving techniques used in Gordon’s restaurants are included, enabling you to plan meals with the minimum of fuss and entertain effortlessly. This inspirational cookbook is set to become a classic reference book in the kitchen.”

Fine Herbs: Ornamental Plants for the Garden by Deni Bown (£12.50)Publisher: Unwin Hyman — 1988Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0044401337]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Price Clipped. Description: Illustrated by way of: Colour Photographs; Black & White Drawings; Diagrams; Tables;

From the cover: “The growing of herbs in our gardens, usually for culinary purposes, has enjoyed a great revival in recent years. The pleasure of brushing past sweet-smelling herbs on a summer’s evening and the satisfaction of picking fresh mint, parsley and thyme to enhance a recipe are familiar to many gardeners. It is perhaps a less familiar endeavour to try growing herbs that are beautiful plants in their own right — to grow variegated or coloured varieties that add interest and distinction to the garden.

In this book the author has selected over forty such plants to tempt the keen gardener — who could resist a double flowered celandine or golden variegated jasmine? — and describes their cultivation, history, medicinal and culinary uses with detailed and infectious enthusiasm.

Divided into seven geographical regions, Rick Stein’s Seafood Lovers’ Guide is packed with information and recipes that will tempt and enthral anyone who enjoys cooking and eating really good fish. Rick introduces each region with a description of the area and describes the local delicacies and dishes that can be found there — from the spectacular taste of wood-smoked haddock in the North East of Scotland to the sweet flavour of the enormous brown crabs to be found in the West Country.

As rich and varied as the regions themselves, Rick’s new collection of recipes includes sensational dishes such as Roast Monkfish with Crushed Potatoes, Olive Oil and Watercress; Ravioli of Fresh Crab with Warm Parsley and Lemon Butter: and Salt Ling, Tomato and Potato Pasties. And for simple family meals at home, Rick has added a separate selection of classic British seafood dishes, such as Skate with Black Butter and a delicious Fish Pie.

For those who feel the desire to follow in Rick’s footsteps, each region includes a selection of recommended places to eat and buy seafood. From harbour-side restaurants, fish-and-chip shops, pubs and oyster bars to fishmongers and smokeries, each entry is complete with address, telephone number, directions and a brief description of what you can expect to find.

Fully illustrated with stunning food photography by James Murphy and beautiful landscape photography by Craig Easton, Rick Stein’s Seafood Lovers’ Guide is both a classic collection of delicious and inspirational seafood recipes and a wonderful souvenir of Britain’s coastal heritage.”

From the cover: “Where would the culinary arts be without vegetables? In all shapes, colours, textures and flavours, their variety seems endless and is growing all the time as more and more exotic kinds reach our shops and tallies. And the variety of vegetables is matched by their amazing versatility. This hook contains a selection of recipes from all over the world which have vegetables as their main ingredients. Some contain meat, fish or game, hut many are vegetarian, while others can he prepared leaving out the meat or fish without significant loss to the dish.

There are traditional dishes from individual countries, which have largely come about through local availability of produce and climatic conditions. In southern Italy, for example, vegetables are the mainstay of the diet and unusual specialities have arisen, such as Radicchio Risotto and Cardoon with Tomato Sauce. Other dishes are common to many countries, such as Cauliflower Gratin, which is represented here in a version found in Germany. And there are recipes using techniques from different regions, such as the Far Eastern stir-fry method which is particularly good for vegetables as it retains so much of their flavour and texture.

The recipes range through all kinds of vegetables, from aubergines and avocado to the humble potato and reel cabbage, and they cover the whole range of cuisine, from light snacks to satisfying main courses. All the recipes have one thing in common: the delicious flavour of fresh vegetable produce.”

With starters, main courses and desserts included for each country, you will be able to produce complete meals of any nationality or, for the truly cosmopolitan cook, meals that combine dishes from several countries at once; perhaps a French hors d’oeuvre, followed by a Belgian main course, with a delicious Danish dessert to finish.

Informative introductions to each country, precise step-by-step cooking instructions and glorious colour photographs make this an invaluable book, which will help every cook to forge ahead into the exciting culinary world of the new Europe.”

Antony Worrall Thompson has done more than any other chef to reinvent the way we eat while managing glucose levels and maintaining a healthy weight, and for The Essential Diabetes Cookbook he has gone on a globe-trotting mission to deliver 200 fantastic new recipes that take their inspiration from cuisines around the world. Aromatic Fish Parcels, Sweet and Sour Prawns, Caribbean Salmon Tartare, Smashed Roast Butternut Salad with White Beans and Pine Nuts, Hot Stuffed Vine Leaves, Spicy Lamb Tagine and Peruvian Chicken Kebabs demonstrate just how much world cuisines have to offer those with diabetes. And although our own Western eating habits aren’t always the easiest to adapt, Antony shows it is still possible to enjoy a traditional Sunday roast of pork or hearty venison stew accompanied by an American-style cheesecake or a delicious fruit crumble.

Endorsed by Diabetes UK, each recipe has been analysed by a dietician and is accompanied by clear, at-a-glance nutritional information, making it easier for you to manage your condition and at the same time expand your culinary horizons. So whether you have diabetes or live with someone who does, this is the book for food lovers who know that healthy food should also mean delicious food.”

This is where Framboise, a secretive widow named after a raspberry liqueur, plies her culinary trade at the creperie — and lets her memory play strange games. Into this world comes the threat of revelation as Framboise’s nephew — a profiteering Parisian — attempts to exploit the growing success of the country recipes she has inherited from her mother, a woman remembered with contempt the villagers of Les Laveuses. As the spilt blood of a tragic wartime childhood flows again, exposure beckons for Framboise, the widow with an invented past.”Notes: Size: B Format (7¾" x 5¼").
