Feast: Food That Celebrates Life
Nigella Lawson
  We use food to mark occasions that are important to us in life. Feast is not just about the way we cook and eat at the great religious festivals or big- deal special occasions, but about how food is the vital way we celebrate anything that matters... it's how we mark the connections between us, how we celebrate life.' Essentially about families and food, about public holidays and private passions, about how to celebrate the small everyday pleasures as well as the big occasions, it includes everything from Christmas, Thanksgiving , Hanukkah and Eid, to Passover and Easter; from Valentine's Day to that first breakfast in bed and Sunday lunch fit for the In-Laws; from Meatless Feasts to Midnight Feasts, from Partytime to the ultimate Chocolate Cake Hall of Fame; from weddings to funerals, from Georgian and Venetian feasts to children's favourites.

Appetite: So What Do You Want to Eat Today?

Appetite: So What Do You Want to Eat Today?

by Nigel Slater
One of the best books in print for people who can cook. Nigel Slater's mantra is "recipes don’t rule". Appetite is the revolutionary book that will help all cooks to have fun making anything from a baked potato to Christmas dinner. Inspiring and irresistible, Appetite takes a hundred simple classics and casts aside the insecurities of normal recipes. Ingredients are listed, followed by a suggestion of how much you might need, eg, "double cream--start with 100 ml then see how you go". Readers will be liberated to use their own judgement and actively encouraged to skip half the ingredients for pared-down versions that will teach them the essence of a dish. Recipe titles reflect this approach--"a cheap spaghetti supper", "a big pork roast", "a curry to make you sweat".

The First-time Cook

The First-time Cook
Sophie Grigson
  Setting up home for the first time and feel lost in the kitchen? The First-time Cook is a one-stop guide which shows you not only how to cook delicious food but also how to understand ingredients and cooking techniques so you can feel completely confident on your own. The book assumes no prior knowledge and takes you through the basics of shopping and cooking equipment. Sophie Grigson then covers each essential cooking technique and food in turn, moving step-by-step through the basics with lots of incredibly useful advice on the possible pitfalls and showing variations and alternatives once you have mastered the essentials. From the perfect roast chicken to twenty variations on the quick-and-easy omelette and pasta of all descriptions, the recipes have been chosen not only to show core techniques but also to provide a fantastic collection of dishes that cover everything from quick (and cheap) supper ideas for one, to coping with doing Sunday lunch for six for the first time. Detailed, dynamic step-by-step photographs show how recipes should look at each stage and finished shots are of real food, not overly styled dishes that only a professional could ever achieve. Interest in cookery has never been greater but the number of people actually able to cook continues to decline. Sophie Grigson's TV experience has given her a natural ability to teach cookery in an informal and friendly way and, with this book, she fills the gap left by conventional cookbooks which assume a knowledge most people don't possess. It will prove to be a bible for everyone interested in cooking fantastic food.
