Living a balanced way of life is about the combination of eating whole, delicious foods that are nourishing and energizing, taking care of yourself and others and about the sustainable coexistence of people and nature.

The new trend is green: matcha is top-quality green tea that is ground into a find powder. Originally used in the traditional Japanese tea ceremony, matcha is now inventively used in other dishes as well. And now we are going to make this neon-green ingredient our very own: with its tart-sweet taste, Matcha gives ice cream or smoothies its own special kick. Other than the color, what is so special about this powder? The entire tea leaf is ground to make matcha powder, which means all of the beneficial ingredients in green tea--like anti-oxidants and phytochemicals-are preserved. It is a great reason to take a closer look at this green trend!

For centuries the pub has been an essential part of London’s cultural and social fabric. This beautifully illustrated book takes readers through the doors of 25 historically and architecturally significant London pubs. Through photographs specially commissioned for this project, readers can explore these institutions—from snob screens to 400-hundred-year-old flagstone floors. Engaging texts highlight what makes each pub so special; their place in London’s history, the personalities who have frequented them, the events that occurred inside, and the ways pubs have contributed phrases such as “on the wagon” and “one for the road” to the modern lexicon. This book reveals why The Lamb and Flag in Covent Garden earned the nickname the “Bucket of Blood”, and features a pub that Charles Dickens described as a “great rambling queer old place”. Furthermore, the book muses over the chances that Casanova paid a visit to The Dog and Duck in Soho, and uncovers the location of Charles De Gaulle’s favorite wartime watering hole. These and other amusing anecdotal histories make this fascinating and luxuriously illustrated book a must-have for anyone with a love for the good old London pub.

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.

Bowl Stories: Authors Ben & Viola chose this name for their cookbook because eating food out of bowls is not just a trend, but rather an expression of their love for food itself. Eating meals out of a bowl or even a pot is what they both would define as the ultimate pleasure. A bowl can be cradled in one hand, making it easy to enjoy a meal at work, on the couch, or standing up. Eating from a bowl is practical and sensual at the same time. All the ingredients and components are close together, making it easy to unite them in a single spoonful. Ben and Viola serve traditional dishes with a special touch: Discover recipes such as Asian Carbonara with Pork Belly, Chilled Pea Soup with Nectarine Yakitori Skewers, and Hay Panna Cotta.
