'Beautifully simple recipes from one of Britain's unsung culinary heroes.'
(Nigel Slater Observer Food Monthly)
'If you only buy one cookbook this year, it should probably be this one.'
Clarke's is the legendary Notting Hill restaurant that pioneered seasonal fine dining in British cuisine. To mark the restaurant's 30th birthday year, Sally Clarke, the award winning chef, restaurateur and author has chosen a handful of recipes for each of her favourite 30 ingredients. The simple idea of cooking with the freshest and best market produce, Sally Clarke's vision for thirty years, is at the heart of her new book of ninety-five recipes.
From the one of our best-loved food writers and the presenter of BBC One's Eating Together, A Year of Good Eating is a completely fresh take on seasonal cooking.
The third instalment of Nigel Slater's classic Kitchen Diaries series, A Year of Good Eating explores the balance and pleasure in eating well throughout the year. The leisurely recipes and kitchen stories of the Diaries are ingeniously interspersed with seasonal sections of quick, weeknight suppers in the style of Nigel's most recent bestseller Eat.
A salmon pie with herb butter sauce or an asparagus and blue cheese tart for when you have time to cook; roasted summer vegetables with sausages or quick baked eggs and greens for when you need to get dinner on the table fast.
With Nigel's characteristically simple recipes and inspiring writing, this new book will make good eating a joy, every day of the year.

Analogue Guides is a series of curated city guidebooks featuring high quality, unique, low key venues—distilled through the lens of the neighbourhood.
Set amid the stunning natural beauty of the Mediterranean coast, Barcelona is at once Europe’s casual beachside metropolis and the sophisticated capital of industrious and design-conscious Catalonia. In recent years, the city has simultaneously seen a strong resurgence of Catalan culture and a cosmpolitan influx of immigrants. Its new diversity is perhaps best displayed in the Born’s wealth of outdoor cafés, delightful restaurants and independent boutiques. The city’s avant-garde has shifted into the formerly industrial Poblenou, while the grand Eixample is home to Gaudí inspired architecture and the high-end establishments of great Catalan chefs. We’ve endeavoured to gather the best of what this wonderful city has to offer, with photography and maps throughout.

Atelier Crenn is the debut cookbook of Dominique Crenn, the first female chef in America to be awarded two Michelin stars—and arguably the greatest female chef in the country. This gorgeous book traces Crenn’s rise from her childhood in France to her unprecedented success with her own restaurant, Atelier Crenn, in San Francisco. Crenn’s food is centered around organic, sustainable ingredients with an unusual, inventive, and always stunning presentation.
To put it simply, Crenn’s dishes are works of art. Her recipes reflect her poetic nature with evocative names like “A Walk in the Forest,” “Birth,” and “The Sea.” Even the dishes that sound familiar, like Fish and Chips, or Broccoli and Beef Tartare, challenge the expected with their surprising components and her signature creative plating. This impressive and beautiful cookbook by a chef who is often the only woman to be mentioned in the same breath with other culinary giants is bound to captivate the food world.
Award winning restaurateur Mark Best insists that it is not a question of luxurious ingredients, simply the knowledge and wherewithal to unlock the beauty of some of the most basic elements of cooking. Explanation of basic principles and detailed technique deliver a superior version of all your simple favourites. In the case of cheese for example, he starts with a basic recipe for cheese custard. The next step is a parmesan gnocchi, which requires a little more know-how. And then, for the enthusiastic cook with a little more time on their hands, ricotta dumplings with burnt butter and courgette.
In addition to recipes, Best takes readers on “skills sessions”. He includes step-by-step guides and shares snippets of technical detail. The book does not aspire to be comprehensive, rather an enjoyable - and useful - insight into one man’s craft. Originally inspired by a well-thumbed recipe collection left to him by Margaret Hebbard, his beloved grandmother, Best has set the tone for an accessible, engaging book that will prompt cooks to take their skills and mindset to another level.
