Giles is back for 2018 and the theme this year is holidays, so get ready for an acerbic look at festivities through the eyes of the 20th century's greatest cartoonist.

With 150 cartoons taken from the Express archives, this is bound to be a festive nostalgia trip for any Giles fan.

Franco Manca, Artisan Pizza to Make Perfectly at Home

Giuseppe Mascoli, Bridget Hugo
Authors:
Giuseppe Mascoli, Bridget Hugo

Every critic, blogger and Londoner has sung the praises of Franco Manca, whose pizzas are 'the best in Britain' (Observer). The owner, Giuseppe Mascoli, knows that the best pizza in Italy comes from Naples and therefore, as an expat Neopolitan himself, he has gone back to its roots, where making pizza is all about simple things (bread, tomato, cheese) and simple steps (make the dough, let it rise, flatten it, add topping, bake in the oven), all using the best ingredients to produce pizza of exceptional quality. Aimed at the home cook who doesn't have a traditional woodburning oven, Giuseppe has tailored his recipes so you can use a pizza stone or a heavy baking tray and still get great results. His famous, slow-rising sourdough recipe produces a soft and easily digestible crust, there are 50-60 recipes with seasonal variations, plus chapters on fritti (fried starters) and salads and also tips and techniques for making your own flavoured oils, preserving your tomatoes and curing your meat. Without a doubt, this is the closest you'll come to the real deal in your home kitchen, and in your personal quest for perfect pizza.
