Guinness is a name instantly recognised the world over – the famous stout has been brewed at St James’s Gate in Dublin for over 250 years, and is now brewed under contract in fifty countries and 9 million glasses of Guinness are drunk each day worldwide. Guinness family members, originally in three major groupings − brewing, banking, and the church – have achieved fame in all walks of life, with some scaling great heights, others tasting great sadness. Guinness Down Under is the never-before-told story of how the famous brew and the family came to New Zealand and Australia in the mid-1800s – the brew itself through export and eventually in-country brewing, and the family through four grandsons of Arthur Guinness who made a new life Down Under, where many of their descendants remain. In this indepth and fascinating account we learn about the origins of Guinness stout, the nature of the export trade, and the vagaries of the market We learn of the challenges, highlights, and sadness in the complex lives of the four cousins who, independently and at different times, sought to make a better life for themselves Down Under. The entrepreneur, public figure, and political activist; the successful Canterbury pastoralist; the “black sheep” of the family who set up as a Guinness brewer in Melbourne then disappeared forever; the clergyman who took his family to a vicarage in Melbourne, just when the new city was flourishing. Also described is the progress of the iconic Guinness stout in Australia and New Zealand, from early imports in the mid-1800s through to present-day production in Adelaide and Auckland.

Sourdough bread, delicious, tangy, satisfying, is one of life's real pleasures, but like all good things, it takes time. In this journey through the world of sourdough bread baking, Martina Goernemann reveals how the process of baking bread exemplifies food awareness, a way of life that is becoming increasingly popular. Beginning with her own first attempts, Goernemann then goes on to interview a series of people across countries and cultures who, like her, have incorporated the practice of sourdough baking as a healing ritual for overscheduled lives. From interior design expert Delia Fischer finding her way in the kitchen of her grandmother, to John Whalley, an American realist painter who appreciates the simplicity of things and therefore discovered sourdough as a perfect object for his portraits, each of the individuals profiled represent a different appreciation for the time and patience necessary to create the perfect loaf. What they all have in common is Goernemann's starter recipe, now part of the Puratos Company's sourdough library. She's also included valuable tips from professional bakers around the world. Whether it's carving out time in a busy day, contemplating the miraculous combination of flour, spices, and water, or painstakingly searching for the optimum conditions, bakers at every level will take away something valuable from this nourishing guide to living well through sourdough.

In this revised and updated edition of her 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, cumin and oranges are both remnants of the voyaging past, green coriander is 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 very much in present vogue. Edite Vieira was born in Portugal. She moved to London where she worked for the BBC as a radio journalist and programme announcer. She was a cultural affairs correspondent for a number of magazines but is most highly regarded as the author of many books including a collection of poetry and for her food writing and recipe books. She is also the winner of a Gourmand World Cookbook Award.
