On visiting his local butcher, Norman Tebbit, food lover and family cook wondered why people would rather buy tasteless, factory-farmed chicken when they could eat good-quality game, often for less money. ‘I think mostly’, replied the butcher, ‘ it’s because they don’t know how to cook them – and they think it would be very difficult’ . First published in 2009 and unavailable for many years, this is a revised, updated and redesigned edition, now containing new recipes, of this immensely popular cookbook. Norman Tebbit showcases his favourite game recipes including pheasant, partridge, duck, grouse, wood pigeon, woodcock, deer, rabbit and many more. Whether the recipe is a relatively simple casserole, or a more challenging dish, the easy-to-follow- style guarantees consistent results. The book also includes a concise guide to game, instructions on preparation, advice on kitchen equipment, handy conversion charts and individual hints and tips on the various game included. Written with humour, The Game Cook is a practical handbook of mouth-watering recipes for eco-cooks, traditional food-lovers and those who are looking for some money-saving ways to provide tasty, wholesome meat dishes to the family.

Winner of the 1992 Glenfiddich Award for Food Book of the Year, this is a cookery book with a strong travel bias, dealing with each of Andalucia’s eight provinces in turn to provide a personal, geographical and culinary survey of the area. It shows how the land itself and historical events have influenced the culinary tradition of the region, with its intriguing combination of hearty peasant fare and the delicate seasonings that are a legacy of the Moorish invasions. Each province draws on its own magnificent natural larder, and the recipes, such as hot gazpacho from Huelva, salt cod with potatoes and peppers from Jaén, pork and beans with chard from Seville and chickpea and wheat soup from Almería, reflect this diversity. The author lived in the area for several years. Her personal reminiscences are interwoven with a wealth of cultural and historical information, and the text is accompanied by the author’s own watercolours of dishes, places and scenes of Andalucian life.

After nearly forty years, Pedro Subijana, the three star Michelin chef and his world-famous restaurant, Akelaŕe, is at the forefront of the New Basque Cuisine, championed in the 70s by Juan Mari Arzak. In the words of Subijana, ‘New Basque Cuisine aims to focus on seasonal products but adding a large dose of imagination and pushing back the frontiers’. Above all, he says, ‘Throughout the meal, we take care of every last detail to ensure that the occasion is a memorable one’. His restaurant Akelare (a Basque word that has entered the Spanish language, meaning a coven of witches) is in a spectacular location on the slopes of the Monte Igueldo, one of the symbols of the beautiful city of San Sebastián, and looks over the Bay of Biscay; it has got to be one of the most special places for a meal anywhere in the world. Here in this visually stunning production you will find some of the culinary creations of Pedro Subijana from the last ten years and you will find excellence, innovation and the avant garde, three terms that could define Akelaŕe's style, as well as an insight into the work of the kitchen and its extensive team.

There is more to seaweed than as a wrapper for sushi - it is going mainstream, gathering many high profile fans. Even Jamie Oliver has credited adding seaweed to his diet as one reason for his weight loss. This super food is a low-calorie source of protein and fibre; is richer in trace minerals and vitamins than kale; and contains all kinds of goodness, including vitamin C, iodine and antiviral, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. It is delicious as a snack, added to soups, in omelettes, tossed through pasta, made into pesto and is a fabulous accompaniment to fish. The seaweeds used in this book are found all over the Northern hemisphere and have been harvested for centuries in North America, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, England, Grennland, Siberia, Norway and France. The main species (nori, dulse, kombu, wakame and hijiki) are all illustrated and explained, with detailed descriptions of how to identify them, where they grow and the other information you need to gather the rich harvest of the sea. But if sea-scavenging is not your style there are plenty of dried seaweeds now available to buy from natural food stores and supermarkets where it is also appearing in many more forms such as snacks, condiments, salt substitute and crackers. Seaweeds are tasty and very versatile and can be used in all sorts of dishes. This sumptuously illustrated book will inspire you to use them in starters, main courses, plus tasty desserts, smoothies, energy boosters, and even a seaweed-infused gin and tonic. It’s easier than you think and everything you can find on the subject is here in this inspiring book. So if you have never tasted sea vegetables, it is high time to try.

Guinness is a name instantly recognised the world over – the famous stout has been brewed at St James’s Gate in Dublin for over 250 years, and is now brewed under contract in fifty countries and 9 million glasses of Guinness are drunk each day worldwide. Guinness family members, originally in three major groupings − brewing, banking, and the church – have achieved fame in all walks of life, with some scaling great heights, others tasting great sadness. Guinness Down Under is the never-before-told story of how the famous brew and the family came to New Zealand and Australia in the mid-1800s – the brew itself through export and eventually in-country brewing, and the family through four grandsons of Arthur Guinness who made a new life Down Under, where many of their descendants remain. In this indepth and fascinating account we learn about the origins of Guinness stout, the nature of the export trade, and the vagaries of the market We learn of the challenges, highlights, and sadness in the complex lives of the four cousins who, independently and at different times, sought to make a better life for themselves Down Under. The entrepreneur, public figure, and political activist; the successful Canterbury pastoralist; the “black sheep” of the family who set up as a Guinness brewer in Melbourne then disappeared forever; the clergyman who took his family to a vicarage in Melbourne, just when the new city was flourishing. Also described is the progress of the iconic Guinness stout in Australia and New Zealand, from early imports in the mid-1800s through to present-day production in Adelaide and Auckland.
