It’s well known that Claude Monet was a gourmand as well as an artistic genius. His culinary journals are filled with detailed recipes and notes about what he ate and with whom he shared his meals. Now, sixty of those recipes are gathered in this elegantly produced book brimming with the colors and flavors of Giverny, France. Each chapter features recipes that were served in Monet’s famed yellow dining room, eaten al fresco in the gardens at Giverny, or at several of the fine restaurants along the Seine in Normandy. Beautiful reproductions of Monet’s art compliment the recipes, along with photographs of the artist enjoying these dishes with his family, friends, and fellow artists. The recipes themselves, selected for their rustic appeal and use of only the freshest ingredients, range from simple galettes and hearty casseroles to fine soufflés, seafood dishes, and delicious tarts, cakes, and other pastries. A fitting tribute to the painter and his legendary aesthetic, this cookbook is the next best thing to sitting at Monet’s table.

El Celler de Can Roca is the three Michelin starred Catalan restaurant in Spain which was opened in 1986 by the Roca brothers, Joan, Josep and Jordi. In 2015, it was once again named the best restaurant in the world by the Restaurant magazine. The Times restaurant critic A.A. Gill compared the restaurant to former restaurant El Bulli, which was once ranked as the number one restaurant in the world, saying that it was an ‘outstanding kitchen, and part of the great confident wave of new Spanish food that is complex, technically exhausting, aware of the landscape, history and politics’. The first edition of El Celler de Can Roca The Book was published in Spanish in a giant format weighing an incredible 5 kilos and retailing at 90 euros. This new smaller, redux edition is appearing in English for the first time. An amazing book, this is the definitive work about El Celler de Can Roca. Fully illustrated in colour throughout it gathers the thoughts of writer Josep Maria Fonalleras in ‘A day at El Celler’. Here is the history, philosophy, techniques, values, sources of inspiration, creative processes, of this band of extraordinary chefs with over 90 detailed recipes, and a collection of the 240 most outstanding dishes from the 25-year history of this magnificent restaurant. An open door to the secrets of El Celler de Can Roca, revealed in 16 chapters and organised according to the sources of inspiration that nurture the Roca brothers: Tradition, Memory, Academia, Product, Landscape, Wine, Chromatism, Sweet, Transversal Creation, Perfume, Innovation, Poetry, Freedom, Boldness, Magic, Sense of Humour.

In 2015 Pierre Gagnaire, whose 11 restaurants worldwide boast two and three Michelin stars, was voted ‘Best Chef in the World’ by his peers and 2016 sees him mark 50 dazzlingly creative and successful years in the kitchen. To celebrate this outstanding career Grub Street is delighted to be publishing his new title La Cuisine des 5 Saisons in English. This beautiful book is about his recipes and his work as a chef and for the first time makes his dishes accessible for home cooks. Why is it called Five Seasons? Five seasons because for chef Gagnaire there are five not four seasons; Spring, he says must be divided into two seasons. Thus the recipes in this book follow the rhythm of the seasons and their bounty. In each chapter there are six menus with starter, main dish and dessert. The recipes come from Pierre Gagnaire culinary's repertory and these are the recipes which made him famous. Through the recipes one can see the strong worldwide influence in Pierre Gagnaire's cuisine, cooking with every kind of ingredient. His eponymous restaurant at 6 rue Balzac in Paris (in the 8th arrondissement) specialises in modern French cuisine, and has garnered three Michelin stars. He is an iconoclastic chef at the forefront of the fusion cuisine movement by introducing jarring juxtapositions of flavours, tastes, textures, and ingredients. On his website he gives his mission statement as ‘facing tomorrow but respectful of yesterday’. Gagnaire is also Head Chef of Sketch in London. In 2005 both restaurants were ranked in the S. Pellegrino World's 50 Best Restaurants by industry magazine Restaurant, with Pierre Gagnaire ranking third for three consecutive years (2006, 2007, and 2008). In December 2009, Gagnaire made his United States debut with Twist, a new flagship restaurant at the Mandarin Oriental in Las Vegas, which has since received great critical praise and a Forbes Five-Star Award. He now also has restaurants in Hong Kong, Seoul, Dubai, Tokyo, Berlin, and Moscow.

Hospofrofta is a colloquial, autobiographical dialogue centred around the Auckland cafe scene. It dishes dirt, offers conclusions and revels in indignation. It contains checklists for cafe buyers and sellers, a selection of cafe reviews, a rundown on some important figures in the scene and even a political manifesto. There is, of course, the obligatory recipe pages – although presented in a slightly irreverent fashion. Anyone who’s ran a small business, drank coffee or made coffee should find themselves in a literary fugue of empathy when reading Hospofrofta. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Hayden Hyams has co-owned five cafes in Auckland over fifteen years and worked in countless others. He has experienced the trials, tribulations and fleeting moments of satisfaction that come with being a small business owner.

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!
