Vegan cooking without eggs using the magic of chickpea water From the Latin aqua (water) and faba (beans), aquafaba is the cooking liquid found in tinned beans and other legumes like chickpeas or the liquid left over from cooking your own. It can be used to replace egg whites in many sweet and savoury recipes. Its unique mix of starches, proteins, fibre and sugars, which are left in the water after cooking, gives aquafaba a wide range of emulsifying, foaming, binding and thickening properties, making it the perfect ingredient in vegan cooking or recipes for those who have egg allergies. It’s amazing to think that this precious liquid that we all threw down the sink could have such incredible properties? This is a real culinary revolution. The authors give all the secrets of aquafaba; how to make your own at home with just chickpeas and water and then how to use it in a dazzling array of recipes. Aquafaba beaten with a whisk produces a mountain of snowy white, giving volume to your muffins, and binding in your pasta. At last for vegans, lemon meringue pie, mousses, mayonnaise, macaroons and meringues are on the menu. Sébastien and Laura have thought of everything. Having created your aquafaba there are even a collection of recipes at the end of the book which use those cooked chickpeas to make hummus, falafels and curries.

Not For Ourselves Alone traces belonging in its broadest context - for people everywhere and through time. Jenny Robin Jones uses her own experience to track how, in the modern world, we develop a sense of belonging via our individual self. She finds belonging under attack as never before. The overblown cult of the individual can leave people lonely or alienated from those around them. Society offers salvation by shopping and the single-minded pursuit of profit, but a feeling of emptiness often persists. In conversation with friends and family members, Jenny records how those dear to her are finding their own ways to belonging in spite of difficult circumstances. In essence they are replacing the twentieth-century story of ourselves as either self-interested individuals or just herd animals by a narrative with kindness, compassion and inclusion at its heart.

In 1981, during a family year away from New Zealand, four-month-old Alexander died in a London hospital. Jan Pryor blends her personal experience of losing a child with her professional understanding of family dynamics and children’s development. The clumsiness of consolation; the challenges of organising a funeral – and what to do with Alexander’s ashes; the isolation, being far from friends and family; continuing family life with two other young children to care for; all are described directly but without self-pity. The experience of growing up in 1960s New Zealand - and the stand-off between traditional expectations of the role of a woman versus the pull towards a professional life - is interwoven throughout the memoir. After Alexander is a story of triumph over loss, and of optimism. It offers consolation and hope to parents who have lost a child, to those who fear losing a child, and to anyone who has suffered the loss of a loved one.
