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.

The Handyman In The Home: In 3 Volumes by Edited by Arthur W. Judge (£40.00)Publisher: Caxton Publishing Company — 1956Binding: Hardback Condition: Very Good. Pages lightly age-tanned otherwise a pleasant set.Description: September Reprint of the 2nd Edition. [First: 1930] Illustrated with black and white photographs & diagrams. From the preface: “As its title indicates, this work has been prepared expressly for the practical handyman desirous of undertaking a wide variety of jobs connected with the home, garden, garage and small workshop, including not only the domestic repairs and renovations that become necessary from time to time but also useful improvements and additions to the home and its contents. The keen home dweller, with a knowledge of the use of the simple tools and materials described in these volumes, can not only tackle most household repairs and additions expeditiously, but also avoid a good deal of expense. Apart from these considerations, there is always the satisfaction associated with the completion of a job that would otherwise have meant calling in someone else for the purpose. In addition to the extensive range of household repairs, fittings, furniture and other relevant items dealt with in this work, there are also a number of sections, including those on homecrafts, hobbies, sports accessories, outdoor constructions, etc., which will be found both useful and profitable to the handyman and housewife. Since many of the articles in these volumes deal with woodwork repairs and new constructions, it was considered desirable to include a comprehensive section, written by a well-known expert in such matters, on the subject of carpentry and woodworking tools, so that the reader who is not very well acquainted with the use of the latter can improve both his knowledge and experience.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 7".

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..”

Bugialli on Pasta by Giuliano Bugialli (£24.00)Publisher: Simon & Schuster — 1988Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 067162024X]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Gently bruised at the head of the spine and the top corners of the boards with commensurate wear to the dust wrapper. Price Clipped. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Colour Photographs; Black & White Drawings; Diagrams;

From the cover: “Pasta, most authorities agree, developed as a way of preserving milled wheat — the wheat was mixed with water and dried in the sun. From that practical and humble beginning came the food that has been basic to the Italian diet for more than a century, and popular around the world. Most amazing is the possible range of preparation and combinations with other ingredients. Having written about pasta and taught its techniques for many years, Giuliano Bugialli now addresses his subject with the full force of his experience and scholarship.

Organized around other principal ingredients in a dish — vegetables or fish, for instance — or styles, such as the various regional specialties or different-flavored pastas, Bugialli on Pasta consciously and conscientiously takes authenticity and tradition into account. From the simplest tomato sauces, including the true marinara, to more festive and complicated stuffed pastas, Bugialli presents the genuine versions and explains the nuances between one and another. For everyday meals, Bugialli on Pasta offers dozens of simple and healthful preparations — pasta with beans, asparagus, or eggplant — that can be the mainstay of a sensible diet. For other occasions here are Ravioli Stuffed with Fish, from Liguria; from Abruzzi, elegant Crespelle cooked in broth, and from Tuscany, delicate gnocchi infused with the earthy flavour of porcini mushrooms. Even dessert has its pasta possibility, as seen in Nidi de Carnevale, chocolate-flavored pasta shaped into nests and sauced with honey, brandy and almonds.

Bugialli on Pasta is a brilliant book by one of the world’s great author-teachers, to be turned to as much for its food history and gorgeous photographs as for its recipes and instruction.”

[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.

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.”

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.”

The recipes are presented in a clear and easy-to-follow way, with detailed descriptions and clear photographs of Gordon’s special techniques, his brilliant short cuts, and other culinary hot tips. Prepare his Salad of Seared Tuna with a Sauté of Treviso, for example, and follow his unique technique for caramelising bitter leaves. Make a refreshing summer soup and float olive-oil infused ice cubes in it — they keep it chilled and impart flavour as they melt. Many of Gordon’s ideas are simple, but very effective.

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.”
