Juan Mari Arzak is the owner and chef of Arzak restaurant in San Sebastian, Spain, and was one of the first Spanish chefs to be awarded 3 Michelin stars. The restaurant is now rated 8th best in the world, and Juan’s daughter Elena, who cooks with him, was voted best female chef in the world in 2012. They both studied with the great chefs of their day – Juan in France with Paul Bocuse and the Troisgros brothers; Elena with Alain Ducasse, Ferran Adrìa and Pierre Gagnaire. ‘What we eat, how we eat, is in our culture,’ says Elena, ‘our signature cuisine is Basque. Our taste is from here. We were born here. We cook unconsciously with this identity.’ Thus Arzak is considered to be one of the most influential masters of the New Basque cuisine, which has continued to have a major influence on international cuisine, particularly on such world renowned chefs as Ferran Adrià, who took the techniques pioneered by Arzak to new heights. Originally published in Spanish and now available in English for the first time Arzak Secrets is THE behind the scenes recipe and technique book from the world famed restaurant. Gorgeously photographed, this volume is a glimpse at some of the secrets behind the dishes that have made the restaurant and chef famous. Arzak’s kitchen is a laboratory for flavours, aromas and textures, and his dishes and techniques are revealed in this fascinating cookbook, which is not only for professionals looking for inspiration but for any dedicated cook committed to understanding the creative development and innovations behind this exceptional food.

Caring for a Horse or Pony is the new name for one of The Pony Club’s longest-lasting and most popular publications – Keeping a Pony at Grass – which was first published over fifty years ago. Revised and rewritten to combine the latest latest research with tried and tested approaches, the new name also reflects how much has changed in the equestrian world since the first edition. Looking after a horse or pony is hugely rewarding. It’s also a great responsibility, as he depends on us to safeguard his health, safety and general well being. If one is a first-time owner or carer, one may feel daunted at how much there is to learn, but everyone has to take that first step. As one progresses, one’ll find that we never stop learning and that always wanting to find out more is part of the fascination of caring for horses. If one is an experienced owner, it’s always good to review the way one does things.
