First published in 1996 (and selling over 50,000 copies) but out of print for many years, now back by popular demand is Ruth Van Waerebeek’s wonderful compendium of Belgian recipes. Belgium is a country that boasts more three-star restaurants per capita than any other nation ̶ including France. It's a country where home cooks ̶ and everyone, it seems, is a great home cook ̶ spend copious amounts of time thinking about, shopping for, preparing, discussing, and celebrating food. With its hearty influences from Germany and Holland, herbs straight out of a Medieval garden, and condiments and spices from the height of Flemish culture, Belgian cuisine is elegant comfort food at its best ̶ slow-cooked, honest and comforting. It's the Sunday meal and a continental dinner party, family picnics and that antidote to a winter's day. In 250 delicious recipes, here is the best of Belgian cuisine. Veal Stew with Dumplings, Mushrooms, and Carrots, Smoked Trout Mousse with Watercress Sauce, Braised Partridge with Cabbage and Abbey Beer, Gratin of Belgian Endives, Flemish Carrot Soup, Steak-Frites, Steamed Mussels, and desserts, some using the best chocolate on earth: Belgian Chocolate Ganache Tart, Almond Cake with Fresh Fruit Topping and Little Chocolate Nut Cakes. As the Belgians say, since everybody has to eat three times a day, why not make a feast of every meal?

Fifteen years since it was originally published, Grub Street is proud to present the re-issue of Poles in Defence of Britain. To the Polish volunteers who were to fly and fight so brilliantly and tenaciously throughout the Battle of Britain, the United Kingdom was known as ‘Last Hope Island’. Many lost their lives, such as Antoni Ostowicz, many achieved glory and became aces – such as Glowacki, Skalski and Witorzenc. The RAF came to depend on these men, with over 100 Polish pilots supporting almost thirty fighter squadrons, most especially 302, 303 and 307 (night fighter). ‘An exhaustive record of the heroic actions of the Polish pilots who escaped to Britain and helped ensure its survival.’ Pennant ‘The result of many years of research, sharp and comprehensive, the text is supported by an excellent selection of rare photos.’ Air Mail

This anthology of Elizabeth David’s work, originally published in hardback in 2000, is a direct sequel to An Omelette and a Glass of Wine. It again contains a selection of her journalistic and occasional work from four decades. Much of it she had chosen herself for reprinting in this more accessible form. In addition there is a considerable amount of unpublished material found in her own files, or contributed by friends to whom she had given recipes, or to whom she had sent letters, either with notes in answer to queries or giving details of current research.

Niçoise cuisine is the food of the Mediterranean. It is not only a delight to the palate, but is known to have many health benefits. Its recipes are in tune with the natural cycle of the year using in-season fruits, herbs and vegetables, as well as plenty of fish. But the majority of the recipes are merely guides – unless you are baking – offering a relaxed flexibility with ingredients and seasonings suited to cooks of all levels of experience. This, Jacques Médecin’s legendary book, first published in 1972 and now reissued for the first time in hardback offers an infectiously enthusiastic guide to the cookery of his city.

Though the word ‘vegetarianism’ was not coined until the mid-nineteenth century, the vegetarian diet has been around as long as man has. Colin Spencer’s comprehensive book, reissued in paperback for the first time in fifteen years explores the psychology of abstention from flesh and attempts to discover why omnivorous humans at times voluntarily abstain from an available food.

Creamy puddings are back on the table! Have you ever tasted a real homemade custard pudding? And no, we don’t mean the one that comes from a packet, but a beautiful, trembling cream dessert made the old fashioned way with eggs, sugar, milk and cream. In Quivering Desserts & Other Puddings you will find recipes for both classic puddings such as vanilla, almond, chocolate and wonderful contemporary versions such as salted caramel pudding with caramel popcorn and white chocolate pudding with jasmine tea. And much, much more. Sounds difficult? It is not. A real pudding just requires a little time at the stove and some hours in the refrigerator. And the reward – a quivering cream artwork that makes children quiver and adults sigh.

In what has been described as ‘the greatest raid of all’, Operation Chariot saw heavy destruction of the enemy-occupied port of St Nazaire by British forces. Winged Chariot examines the role that the RAF played during this epic raid on 28th March 1942. With focus on the planning and actions of the operation, Peter Lush explores the three functions carried out by the RAF; the sweeping of the Bay of Biscay, the diversionary raid and protecting the withdrawing survivors. He also outlines the importance of the Photographic Reconnaissance Unit to the raid and the development of the Bomber and Coastal Commands particularly through the sorties flown by Coastal Command two days before the attack started. The book also highlights the difficulties that occurred for the RAF when the diversionary raid was carried out with impossible conditions, and the ensuing loss of aircraft across Yorkshire and in the Channel. Lush examines whether greater success could have been achieved if the RAF had not been marginalised during the planning process for Operation Chariot. With the 75th anniversary of the operation in 2017, this timely and ultimate account written by an expert who has collated over forty years worth of research is an essential work for all those interested in military aviation, particularly during the Second World War.

Antoinette Savill’s first book for Grub Street, Learn to Cook Wheat, Gluten and Dairy Free is one of our best-selling health titles. And so by popular demand here is her latest collection of contemporary and delicious recipes to suit the seasons, all tastes and all budgets. Like her previous book this one is aimed at the millions of people suffering from food intolerances. If you are told that you must follow a wheat, gluten or dairy free diet, what can you safely eat? One thing is certain you will have to start cooking for yourself at home since there are very few ready meals available that will be suitable for your restricted diet. The simplest and safest course is to prepare your own meals, that way you will know that your food does not include any hidden ingredients that might trigger your allergy or intolerance. The recipes are smart, modern, international and anything but depriving by using alternative ingredients such as coconut milk and rice flour. There are over 120 recipes for vegetarian dishes, lunches and suppers, soups and starters, main courses, fish and seafood, game and poultry, meat, desserts and puddings , cakes, muffins, cookies, breads and tarts. There are lots of sweet delights in this book as these are often the foods that most coeliacs think they will have to forego in their new eating regime, but as Antoinette Savill says in her Introduction ‘Simple homely comforts are always needed but treats and indulgences can also have a place in our weekly menus.’ Another feature of the book is that the recipes are equally divided into slower and faster choices as a way of balancing the relaxing enjoyment of cooking and eating with the type of express cooking recipes we need in our hectic times. Antoinette Savill is a Glenfiddich award-winning cookery writer, and has been writing cookbooks for 25 years. She has skilfully extended and modified her cookery knowledge using great flair to develop and write leading world-renowned allergy free recipe books. Her books are born of a real commitment to all those suffering from food intolerances, who are determined it is not going to prevent their enjoyment of good food and entertaining. Antoinette currently resides in New Zealand.
