Beans, peas and lentils are tasty, colourful, nutritious and versatile ingredients. Enjoyed by people around the globe for centuries, they make wonderful soups, appetizers, main dishes and even baked goods. Not only are they rich in proteins and an alternative to meat, but also they are very low in fat. There is an increasing emphasis on legumes as an essential part of today's healthy diet, as one of the current trends is to eat healthier by cutting fat, not flavor. This book offers a wealth of budget-friendly recipes from around the globe to rediscover pulses and enjoy their health benefits: Indian chard and red lentil curry, Brazilian Feijoada, Moroccan chickpea salad, or fava bean and feta tapenade, to name but a few.

Cooking Like Mummyji was first published to great acclaim and garnered thousands of loyal fans in 2003 but has been unavailable for almost 10 years. It won the Jeremy Round Award for Best First Book at the Guild of Food Writers Awards and was short-listed for Best Book at the Glenfiddich Awards. Now back in a fully revised, redesigned edition with newly commissioned photography the author reveals in over 100 recipes the secrets of British Asian food. These are the recipes from her family and friends; Indian cooking but adapted using British ingredients. Vicky says ‘our home food is much simpler than the food you find in Indian restaurants. We use very few spices. The same ingredients are generally used for everything but, like musical notes, can be combined in many different ways to creat beautiful melodies.’ Many of the names of her dishes will be familiar to afficiandos of high-street Indian restaurants but Vicky’s versions are healthier, with fresher, more vivid flavours.

Hospofrofta is a colloquial, autobiographical dialogue centred around the Auckland cafe scene. It dishes dirt, offers conclusions and revels in indignation. It contains checklists for cafe buyers and sellers, a selection of cafe reviews, a rundown on some important figures in the scene and even a political manifesto. There is, of course, the obligatory recipe pages – although presented in a slightly irreverent fashion. Anyone who’s ran a small business, drank coffee or made coffee should find themselves in a literary fugue of empathy when reading Hospofrofta. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Hayden Hyams has co-owned five cafes in Auckland over fifteen years and worked in countless others. He has experienced the trials, tribulations and fleeting moments of satisfaction that come with being a small business owner.

It’s well known that Claude Monet was a gourmand as well as an artistic genius. His culinary journals are filled with detailed recipes and notes about what he ate and with whom he shared his meals. Now, sixty of those recipes are gathered in this elegantly produced book brimming with the colors and flavors of Giverny, France. Each chapter features recipes that were served in Monet’s famed yellow dining room, eaten al fresco in the gardens at Giverny, or at several of the fine restaurants along the Seine in Normandy. Beautiful reproductions of Monet’s art compliment the recipes, along with photographs of the artist enjoying these dishes with his family, friends, and fellow artists. The recipes themselves, selected for their rustic appeal and use of only the freshest ingredients, range from simple galettes and hearty casseroles to fine soufflés, seafood dishes, and delicious tarts, cakes, and other pastries. A fitting tribute to the painter and his legendary aesthetic, this cookbook is the next best thing to sitting at Monet’s table.

Great Pubs of London

For centuries the pub has been an essential part of London’s cultural and social fabric. This beautifully illustrated book takes readers through the doors of 25 historically and architecturally significant London pubs. Through photographs specially commissioned for this project, readers can explore these institutions—from snob screens to 400-hundred-year-old flagstone floors. Engaging texts highlight what makes each pub so special; their place in London’s history, the personalities who have frequented them, the events that occurred inside, and the ways pubs have contributed phrases such as “on the wagon” and “one for the road” to the modern lexicon. This book reveals why The Lamb and Flag in Covent Garden earned the nickname the “Bucket of Blood”, and features a pub that Charles Dickens described as a “great rambling queer old place”. Furthermore, the book muses over the chances that Casanova paid a visit to The Dog and Duck in Soho, and uncovers the location of Charles De Gaulle’s favorite wartime watering hole. These and other amusing anecdotal histories make this fascinating and luxuriously illustrated book a must-have for anyone with a love for the good old London pub.
