Most health experts agree that the we are facing a huge increase in the number of people with diabetes. Most cases are Type 2 (non-insulin dependent) diabetes and happily this form of diabetes is controlled by diet and exercise. So understanding nutrition and diet is essential to maintaining your health as a non-insulin dependent diabetes sufferer. However because of our ageing population and rapidly rising numbers of overweight and obese people many diabetics today are either living alone or are a couple. So preparing meals using regular diabetic cookbooks which cater for four or more people can provide meals that are too big and wasteful. "Diabetic Cooking for One and Two" solves the problem by offering a collection of easy, tempting recipes in smaller portions. Based on the very latest research it gives nutritional guidelines, a menu planner, advice on how to shop and plan your meals, over 100 recipes all with nutritional analyses catering for contemporary culinary tastes, consisting of meals with a high intake of vegetables, pulses, fruit and whole grains.

It is amazing that in these times of passion for the food from every corner of the globe, the cooking of Portugal remains unexplored by so many, especially given its vibrant flavours and simple domestic style. In this 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, and cumin and oranges which are both remnants of the voyaging past, with green coriander 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 are very much to contemporary taste.

All Arto der Haroutunian’s twelve cookbooks written in the 1980s became classics; it was his belief that the rich culinary tradition of the Middle East is the main source of many of our Western cuisines and his books were intended as an introduction to that tradition.
His Sweets & Desserts of the Middle East is regarded as the seminal work on the subject but it had been out of print for almost thirty years. At last here in a new edition is the Middle Eastern cookbook that everyone wants.
In this book he takes us on a sumptuous and erudite tour of one of the delights of Middle Eastern cuisine. Sweets and desserts occupy a special place in those lands where natutal food resources can sometimes be limited. The people have made supreme the art of creating delights from very little and in doing do have enriched their world with wafer-thin pastries, luscious halvas, crunchy biscuits, exotic fruits and cool refreshing sorbets.
Many Middle Eastern desserts are very sweet (literally soaked in honey or syrup) and yet their variety is infinite. It reflects the multifarious origins and races of the people of the region and combines ancient traditions and modern influences. One basic sweet may have been adapted in a dozen different ways.
Tantalisingly fragrant, sweet and succulent or dry and spiced with the aroma of the East they transport us as if by magic carpet to the exotic lands of the orient. There are recipes for sesame and date baklavas, almond and pistachio coated biscuits, tempting stuffed fruits, rich mousses, delicate sorbets and syrups, jams and preserves, all of which may tempt you to conjure up these Middle Eastern delicacies in your own home.

La Pâtisserie des Rêves (translating literally as The Patisserie of Dreams) is the name of the world famous French pastry shops; the brainchild of pastry chef Philippe Conticini and entrepreneur and hotelier Thierry Teyssier. With four shops already open in France, the first shop in London will open in February, bringing traditional French patisserie with a modern twist to the British capital.
Their recipe book of the same name published in French in 2012 is published in English to coincide with this historic opening. The book contains over 70 recipes for their signature pastries, recipes include the traditional Saint Honoré (choux pastry, cream and caramel topping) and Paris-Brest (choux pastry with praline cream and praline sauce).
Philippe Conticini has worked as a pastry chef for many years, including a stint at La Table d’Anvers restaurant in Paris. He and business partner Thierry Teyssier ̶who had already set up a theatre company, an events company and a similarly-named hotel company Maisons des Rêves launched the Pâtisserie des Rêves concept after deciding that they wanted a pastry shop that would recreate the excitement children feel about fresh cakes.
