Cooking Like Mummyji was first published to great acclaim and garnered thousands of loyal fans in 2003 but has been unavailable for almost 10 years. It won the Jeremy Round Award for Best First Book at the Guild of Food Writers Awards and was short-listed for Best Book at the Glenfiddich Awards. Now back in a fully revised, redesigned edition with newly commissioned photography the author reveals in over 100 recipes the secrets of British Asian food. These are the recipes from her family and friends; Indian cooking but adapted using British ingredients. Vicky says ‘our home food is much simpler than the food you find in Indian restaurants. We use very few spices. The same ingredients are generally used for everything but, like musical notes, can be combined in many different ways to creat beautiful melodies.’ Many of the names of her dishes will be familiar to afficiandos of high-street Indian restaurants but Vicky’s versions are healthier, with fresher, more vivid flavours.

Beautifully illustrated, this book captures the lifestyle of coffee creators and aficionados, as seen through the lens of acclaimed photographer Horst A. Friedrichs. For some, coffee is a means of getting through the morning. For others, it is a way of life. Fascinated by artisanal coffee culture, celebrated photographer Horst A. Friedrichs turns his lens toward every aspect of coffee—from beans to espresso machines, and from baristas to consumers. Stepping inside the world’s best coffee shops, Friedrichs shows just how sophisticated the practice of making coffee has become. Delicious shots of classic drip cones and decades-old Chemex coffee makers are interspersed with images of beakers filled with dark liquid simmering over a flame and brewers extracting the perfect concentrate to be poured over ice. He also captures coffee’s fashion aesthetic—from witty and vintage t-shirts to upscale extracts and felt filters. Nora Manthey’s texts profile the leading minds of the third wave and reveal their transformative craft. As luscious as a freshly poured cup of espresso, this is a delightfully irresistible book that will be at home on any coffee table.

This new edition tells the story of how the wine came about almost by chance, retracing the roots of the winemaker’s family and Mario ­Incisa’s efforts to change local habits to create an Italian equivalent of a Bordeaux First Growth. The book is the ultimate source on Sassicaia: author Marco Fini, has interviewed the major players multiple times over a thirty-year span. Along with the history of Sassicaia, the book also explores the prize-winning thoroughbred racehorses that train at the estate and the Bolgheri Bird Sanctuary, the first in Italy. With its rolling hills, cypress-lined avenues, and vineyards, the breathtaking beauty of the Tuscan coast is shown in its best light in all seasons by photographer Etienne Hunyady.
