It is amazing that in these times of passion for the food from every corner of the globe, the cooking of Portugal remains unexplored by so many, especially given its vibrant flavours and simple domestic style. In this authoritative and fascinating book, Edite Vieira traces the rich legacy of her country's culinary excellence from medieval through to modern times lacing it with history and anecdote and a collection of authentically delicious recipes. From simple and wholesome peasant fare to elaborate celebratory meals, ingredients include salt cod (bacalhau) in all its myriad variations, and cumin and oranges which are both remnants of the voyaging past, with green coriander the main flavouring herb; essentially the food is the food of a country which grows grapes, peppers, melons, quinces and apples, and few other countries have such a repertoire of pork dishes. Fresh pork is much in evidence as well as ham (presunto), pork and red pepper sausages (chouricos) and black pudding (morcela), all foods are very much to contemporary taste.

The Greek philosophy of food is one of simplicity; make it fresh and full of flavor and serve it with great warmth and flair. It is a cuisine entrenched in history, influenced by the cultures of its neighbors - Turkey, the Middle East, the Balkans but at heart it is unpretentious food from a people who have learned to make the most of what their land has to offer. In this celebration of Greek food Rosemary Barron provides over 250 regional and national specialties, from the olives, feta and seafood of mezes, beautiful little appetizers that can often become a meal in themselves, to delicate lemon broths to hearty bean soups, grilled meats and fish, baked vegetables and pilafs to the fragrant, gooey honey pastries. Greek cooking offers seasonal food perfect for informal eating with family, friends and entertaining. In addition there are chapters on The Greek Kitchen, Breads, The Wines of Greece and Menus for different occasions.

There is something very appealing about the shiny deep purple of the aubergines mostly commonly seen in our supermarkets and markets. But not all aubergines are purplish black and although the aubergine has come to epitomise Mediterranean cooking it is in fact an Asian immigrant from China. So depending on where you travel you can find aubergines in varying shapes, sizes and hues. They may be lilac verging on pink, green tinged or pure ivory (hence their American name, eggplant) plain, mottled or streaked. Some grow long and thin, others are small and perfectly round. As numerous as its possible guises are the methods of cooking the aubergine. You can stew it in the French and Italian style, slice it and fry it, halve it and grill it or bake it whole. So if your repertoire of aubergine recipes is limited to ratatouille or moussaka Nina Kehayan will introduce you to 150 recipes from every corner of the world - from the Near East to the Far East, from South America to Russia and beyond. This book is a unique encyclopaedic guide to the world's aubergine recipes as well as the tale of the author, her family's almost sentimental passion for them and their journey over generations from Russia to Provence. Essentially Aubergines" was published originally to a truly impressive collection of enthusiastic reviews and is now available again in paperback."
