Anita Sumer is a passionate, self-taught, 100% sourdough baker and teacher, based in Slovenia who has become an international sensation - she now has over 70,000 followers on Instagram @sourdough_mania. She started baking sourdough when her husband was ill and could not eat yeasted bread. So successful has she been that she is now teaching sourdough baking around the world; 9 countries and across 3 continents. In 2017, she published her unique sourdough book in her native Slovenia, a first of its kind and the book received two Gourmand World Cookbook Awards. The book has now been published in German, Dutch, French and Croatian. The book features both simple-to-make recipes and more ambitious recipes for more festive occasions. Readers can feast their eyes (and later their stomachs) on rye bread, simple white bread, corn bread, buckwheat bread, fruit bread, donuts, brioches and much more. Sourdough Mania contains chapters on types of grain, making a sourdough leven, the baking process, ingredients and useful tools. Every stage is fully illustrated with step-by-step photography on weighing, mixing, kneading, shaping, scoring, and baking, to take you on a journey to the healthy world of sourdough baking made easy. Anita has started a real bread revolution which more and more people are joining in to bake healthier and more delicious bread. Sourdough Mania is here.

Each recipe is presented in a double-page spread that includes an engaging history, clear instructions, and original photography. Curious about druids? Try the Oak and Mistletoe, reminiscent of ancient European forests. Into voodoo? Enjoy a citrusy rum cocktail that’s finished with Peychaud’s bitters from an infamous New Orleans apothecary. If vodka’s your jam try the Devil’s Daughter, which pays tribute to England’s most famous prophetess, Mother Shipton. More than just a collection of recipes, this dive into the occult tells you everything you need to stock your bar and kitchen with, while offering compelling background information on natural ingredients, botany, herbs, and spices—all points of interests that connect the cocktail enthusiast and the practitioner of magic. Whether you’re serious about cocktails or the occult—or just getting acquainted with either one—this ingenious blend of mixology and magic will add a drop of mystery to every drink you make.

Storecupboard Vegan

ISBN: 9781911621416

Here are 300 easy, fast and inexpensive recipes that use ready-made vegan preparations, such as tofu sausages, smoked tofu, seitan, tempeh, soy steaks, vegan cheeses, and dairy-free yogurt as well as regular storecupboard staples like tins of chick peas or beans, lentils, pasta, rice, quinoa, couscous, gnocchi, miso and frozen vegetables. The authors of the highly acclaimed and widely reviewed Aquafaba, are back, and this time, it is the time-poor urban dweller who will benefit from their culinary creativity. This book is designed for ‘urban vegans’. Why? Because there are noticeable differences in access to food according to where we live. In big cities like London, Paris or New York, you can find every possible vegan ingredient, and endless products imported from exotic countries. On the other hand, since there is rarely local production, it can often be very hard to find top-quality super-fresh fruits and vegetables. You may be surprised to find that almost all the vegetables and herbs used in this book are frozen. The first obvious advantage to using frozen is it’s time saving! No cleaning, no peeling, no cutting – and available in small quantities, without waste. The second advantage is having on hand the basics for an instant meal. So the aim of this book is to provide recipes for real cooking every day using mainly products that are easily found in local neighbourhood shops and supermarkets. The idea is to use what you have on hand, stored in your kitchen cupboards or at the bottom of the fridge. You are always ready to go!

More than just a collection of recipes, the book provides illustrated step-by-step information on the key ingredients of the vegan diet: nuts, flax seeds, chickpeas, avocado; and there is a chapter outlining the essentials for vegan nutritional balance: where to find protein, calcium, vitamin B12 and mistakes to avoid. The demand for vegan cookbooks is growing a pace as more and more people stop eating animal products for environmental, ethical or health reasons and this gorgeous collection of 500 inventive, inspirational recipes for newcomers and long-time vegans alike is destined to be a constant companion.

Bringing rich flavors to the great outdoors, this mouthwatering collection of recipes by Sarah Glover evokes the sights, smells, and tastes of the Australian wilderness. Sarah Glover loves to cook, whether it’s on the edge of a windswept cliff, in a clearing in the forest, or on a sandy stretch of beach. Although she’s made a career as a chef in Australia and New York City, her heart lives outdoors. Filled with gorgeous photographs from the shores of Tasmania and beaches of Sydney to the mountains of Australia’s east coast, this cookbook shares her recipes and secrets to inspire others to cook and eat outside. She offers tips for preparing food over an open flame as well as a list of basic outdoor cooking equipment. Anyone who thinks camping food begins and ends with coffee and toasted marshmallows will be surprised to discover how easy it is to create a stunning four-course meal with a few pots and one fire. From solid staples like tender roast chicken and potatoes to dinner-party-worthy kumquat bellinis and quail with truffles, Glover sets the stage for any kind of outdoor experience. Her recipes are simple and straightforward—often involving only a handful of ingredients—and her instructions are breezy and clear. Whether it’s a quiet retreat in nature or a dawn-to-dusk beach party, Sarah Glover has a menu that will satisfy your hunger for fresh, modern food eaten in the great outdoors.
