Born next-door to a pub in 1940, Frank Priestley went on to spend a life steeped in brewing, drinking and the enjoyment of beer. From a young apprentice, he worked his way up to become a master brewer at the famous Castle Eden brewery. Frank shares with the reader his fascination for the way brewing is done, and he weaves in anecdotes about his diverse colleagues, his skilled working life and the unique beers that the individual breweries produced. His tale covers the years from 1959 to 1979 and he left when the traditional brewing industry in Britain reached one of its lowest ebbs. But Frank is now delighted to see the revival of interest in good beer and he ends the book with a brief round-up of some of the best pubs in England where he has had the pleasure of drinking a pint. His story is informative, lively and heart-warming.

New Edition In Full Colour!

In the years since the book first appeared raw foods have never been more popular as people discover their tremendous healing and health-giving benefits. However raw foodism is more than just the latest dietary fad; historically many cultures and religions have placed value on the eating of living' foods, and proponents have been helping others overcome life-threatening diseases since the early 20th century.
Many who are new to the diet may imagine that eating only uncooked foods would be restrictive and boring, but this is far from the case. There is a wealth of fruit, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and sprouts to discover and use, and with the help of equipments such as a juicer and dehydrator, a whole host of ways to prepare them.
This book includes almost 150 recipes, some of which allow the occasional non-raw ingredient to reflect the author's non-proscriptive attitude to a raw food life-style, in order to encourage those who may not want to go the whole way but are interested in incorporating something new into their existing diet. This book is ideal not only for those who want to adhere to a raw food diet but also for those who may simply wish to embark on a week or two of detoxifying.

When her sons inherited their father's childhood home in a Cornish fishing village, once a commercial building for storing and paking pilchards, Lindsey Bareham thought it would be a nice idea to record some of the recipes and memories of this extraordinary place. It started as a notebook for her sons' eyes only, with lists of favourite ways of cooking mackerel, monkfish and sole and how to make amyonnaise to go with the gift of a handsome crab or crayfish, but then it took on its own momentum and became this very special book, full of recollections and anecdotes and fabulous holiday food.
Although the setting is of course English, Bareham's recipes take in influences from all over the world, including Portugal, Italy and Turkey. Nor, despite the location, are her recipes completely devited to matters piscine. Chapters on eggs, chicken, lamb, vegetables and, of course, puddings, sit alongside a wonderful collection of recipes for fish of all kinds.

Dal is to India what pasta is to Italy. Cheap to produce, highly nutritional, suitable for long storage and capable of being cooked in a basic pot on an open fire, dal has been providing nourishment to millions of Indians for millennia. It truly is a pan-Indian dish consumed by rich and poor alike. It is high protein and has practically no sugar – in fact it is known as ‘poor man’s meat’ in India – hence doctors now include this as an essential item in a diet for diabetics.
Dal is a genuinely impressive dish of infinite variety – there are at least 50 recipes for this humble food. There are multiple ways of cooking it, wide-ranging seasonings are used and there are diverse supplements to serve with it. Over the centuries Indian cooks became innovative and with locally available ingredients they dished out dal to satisfy a regional palate. In the process they also invented new dishes using dal lentils such as kedgeree (khichari – a risotto made with lentil), dosas (pancakes mixed with lentil flower), vadas (lentil cakes), dhokla (baked lentil cakes), papadam (dried lentil snack) and pakoras (fritters dipped in lentil batter).
Krishna Dutta has assembled all the available recipes she could find from her native India and gives here for the first time the most comprehensive collection of recipes, organised regionally. She provides a fascinating historical and cultural context for her recipes making this as much a book to read as cook from.
