When it comes to food, it's no longer cool for men to stare in confusion at pots and other kitchen stuff, meekly offering to wash dishes in exchange for meals. Social acceptance hinges on having a few killer recipes up your sleeve and a passing knowledge of what does what in the kitchen. However attractive one's ability to handle a frying pan as a weapon may be, it does have other uses - such as whipping up a feast. Bloke is here to help any man emerge from the kitchen not only triumphant.but also applauded. The Irish-trained chef Jason Comins teams up with acclaimed lifestyle photographer Russel Wasserfall to produce a sumptuous yet straightforward men's guide to cooking delicious food. Jason departs from the premise that simplicity is the key to putting a good meal on the table, and the full-colour illustrations and no-fuss layout ensure that any man will be equipped with the basic skills needed to become a handy cook.

In a secret valley near Worcester, in the Western Cape, untouched by pollution and city rush lies a farm so heart-achingly beautiful it will compel you to reassess what life is really about. If the view doesn't mesmerize you, the lifestyle of organic farmers Christine and Mark Stevens and their two sons will get you thinking. Beyond the obvious meaning in the title, Harvest is a cookbook about reaping what you sow in life. Christine's decision to leave the city and a hectic corporate career behind has rewarded her with a quality of life for her family that you can only envy. The root of it is feeding two very active boys and a busy husband. In Harvest, Christine shares not only her favourite recipes, but her passion for growing things and taking food straight from the garden or paddock into the kitchen. When she first arrived on the farm, she thought life would be all about slow-cooked meals and long lazy days, be she soon had to adjust to the reality of farm life. This meant that the way she cooked had to change too, to become more seasonal and a lot less fussy.

Fun and easy art-appreciation activities abound in this resource that features 75 American artists from colonial times to the present. A brief biography for each artist tells why his or her work is important, and a kid-tested art activity tries out the artist’s approach. For Georgia O’Keeffe, the activity is a desert painting; for Frederic Remington, a face cast; for Leroy Nieman, a sketch of athletes; and for James Whistler, a clay engraving. Projects stress the creative process and encourage kids to try unusual techniques such as block printing, soak-stain, and stone carving as they learn about architecture, drawing, painting, photography, and sculpture. A resource guide provides a glossary of art terms, a list that groups the artists by style, a list of the artists’ birthdays, an index of art supplies, and websites for viewing art online.
