As well as celebrating the traditional and the classic, 1001 Restaurants You Must Experience Before You Die showcases the best of the contemporary dining scene. Discover where the world's best chefs-René Redzepi, Pierre Gagnaire, Thomas Keller, and Heston Blumenthal, to name but a few- are performing their culinary wizardry. Read about grand old European cafés, brasseries, and restaurants in places such as Barcelona, Paris, Vienna, and Budapest-whose décor evokes the confident affluence of the nineteenth century-as well as the most modern and stylish temples to gastronomy.

The featured restaurants are all iconic, selected not only for the standard of their cooking but for their atmosphere, ambience and setting. There's no shortage of culinary choice either: the world's cuisines are all well-represented in their diverse glory. If you've ever wondered where to find the best curries in Delhi, feijoada in Brazil, dim sum in Hong Kong, sushi in Tokyo, or antipasti in Rome, this is the book for you.

Mimi Spencer, Sam Rice

Mimi Spencer, Sam Rice

As featured in The Times and The Daily Mail.Are you at a point in your life where health is becoming more of a priority? Are you confused by ever-changing headlines that contrive to make the simple act of eating a peril rather than a pleasure? The Midlife Kitchen has the answers.Midlife is not a time to be concerned with food fads and foibles, but rather a glorious opportunity to wrest back control of your eating in the interests of health, happiness and a long life. Taste must certainly come first, but with health firmly snapping at its heels, underpinned by well-established nutritional common sense. Busy lives require simple, sustaining recipes that incorporate health-giving ingredients without too much fanfare or fuss. This book is not about 'clean-eating' or super foods, detoxing or restriction. Instead, it is about building up a balanced and diverse diet, with less sugar, better fat and good carbs. Alongside each recipe is the Midlife Kitchen emblem, the star anise. With each of the eight seeds representing a specific Midlife Health category - such as Hormone Harmony; Mind, Memory, Mood; or Heart Health - authors Sam and Mimi are able to provide simple nutritional information. Health tips explain the benefits of certain ingredients, while 'Why We Love It' sections explore the advantages of cooking each dish. Midlife Must-Haves show how to create homemade essentials such as Midlife Grown-up Granola, Midlife Power Porridge and Midlife Sweetener. From Seared Sirloin on Pan-roasted Veg to The Mother of All Greek Salads, Nurture Bircher to Three-ginger Fire Cake, the recipes in this book come together to create a vibrant menu bursting with mouth-watering flavours.

The same can be said for this book. These sensational recipes will take you on a journey from home-cooked meals and summers spent in North Cyprus to an exciting interpretation of modern Turkish-Cypriot cooking in London. Bring the Oklava experience into your home with Turkish delights such as Pistachio-crusted Banana & Tahini French Toast with Orange Blossom Syrup & Smoked Streaky Bacon; Grilled Quails with Palm Sugar, Sumac & Oregano Glaze; Courgette, Feta & Mint Fritters; Crispy Pomegranate-Glazed Lamb Breast with Yoghurt; Chilli-Roast Cauliflower; and Chocolate, Prune & Cardamom Delice.
