OVER 35,000 HARDBACK COPIES SOLD ‘One thing's for sure, no other book need ever be written on macarons ever again.’ Restaurant Magazine Pierre Hermé is universally acknowledged as the king of French pastry with shops in Tokyo, Paris and London. He is the best, and has even been described as a couturier of pastry. This is a man at the top of his art and there is no question his macarons are in a league of its own. Macarons are the aristocrats of pastry; these brightly coloured, mini meringues, daintily sandwiched together with gooey fillings, have become a holy grail for cookery fanatics and there are even food blogs dedicated to them. Like Pierre Hermé’s famous macarons, it would be difficult for any macaron book to surpass this one and indeed the hardback edition has been a universal bestseller (still in print 978-1-908117-23-6). There are 208 pages of recipes and beautiful food photography, and because making macarons is mostly about technique, rather than just a standard recipe, readers will appreciate the 32-step-by-step photo-illustrated instructions for making shells and fillings. All the classics are here like dark chocolate, praline, coffee, and pistachio, but others feature the more unusual macarons that Hermé is justly famous for: Isfahan is one, with lychee, rose and raspberry, Arabesque with apricot and pistachio, Satine with passion fruit, orange and cream cheese, Mandarin and pink pepper, black truffles, balsamic vinegar as well as a bright-green macaron filled with fresh mint. Anyone interested in making macarons will find MACARONS the best book in print.

Julie Duff runs an award-winning cake business, which supplies wonderful rich succulent fruit cakes and other traditional cakes to some of the country's premier shops, such as Fortnum & Mason. Her most treasured collection of recipes, some of them from generations of her own family which was first published to huge critical acclaim in 2003 has now been revised and updated. She says in her introduction 'my passion for cakes can be wholeheartedly blamed on my grandmother who spent many hours letting me mix fruit cakes at the kitchen table. It was inevitable that one day I would derive pleasure from baking cakes.' This remains one of the most comprehensive collection of cake recipes published in one mammoth volume. Cakes Regional & Traditional encompasses all the traditional, historical and regional cakes from the British Isles. With the combined circulation of cake making magazines exceeding 50,000 per issue the market for this book is assured as other cake making books specialize in either wedding cakes or children's novelty cakes and there is no one source for the hundreds of cakes which are such an integral part of British cooking.

I had no life experience, zero common sense and had never eaten rice. I suffered from debilitating anxiety, was battling an eating disorder and had just had my heart broken. I thought by leaving to travel the world I would instantly becomea glamorous and savvy backpacker… But somehow Lauren’s travels were full of bad luck and near-death experiences. Over the space of two years, instead of finding herself, she lost a laptop, a camera, £1,000 and some teeth. She was caught up in a tsunami,sat beside a dead woman for six hours and experienced a very unhappy ending during a massage in Thailand.But repeatedly being forced out of her pea-sized comfort zone helped Lauren realise that she was stronger than she once thought and, learning how NOT to travel the world was the most enlightening experience she could have hoped for.

Every once in a while a design firm charts a course that is truly memorable, a direction that turns heads, and makes an impact. Dutch designers and the husband-and-wife team of des Bouvrie are one such iconoclastic force. Their design approach for interiors and exteriors, both residential and commercial, is risk-taking, thought-provoking, and always forward-looking, creating a self-contained universe of modernity where bold and noteworthy art plays a significant role. Now, this stunning volume showcases highlights of their body of work to date. Their style is cerebral, with a sleek appeal that artfully interjects powerful jolts of solid color to create dramatic and original statements. Coolly elegant and refined, their spaces are straightforward with no hint of obfuscation.

Few landscapes convey Nature in all of its untamed splendor like the Arctic. Fewer still conjure respect like the seldom traveled and ethereal North Pole. Yet, sadly, this largely pristine and mostly misconceived treasure is now in jeopardy. Sebastian Copeland’s noble goal in these pages is to pay homage to this wonderland, and, in turn, draw awareness to its perilous plight. Copeland’s multi-faceted background—not only as polar explorer and award-winning photographer, established author and journalist, but also as a dedicated environmental activist—offers us a unique vantage point from which to appreciate this lonely spot. Surely, this is the last true wilderness on the planet—and its demise should ring the alarm for the lower latitudes. Copeland’s authority on the subject is unparalleled and, in this book, his passion for this place truly shines. Although the vision presented in these pages may be poetic, the book’s aims are pragmatic—to seduce and inspire the world in order to help foster a market transformation towards a sustainable future.
