Few foods have seen the spotlight in recent years as much as the coconut. Since lingering at the bottom of the fashionable fruit chart, the brown, hairy and difficult to crack contender has risen to the top, making up for what it lacks in looks by packing a nutritional punch. Hailed as one of the top superfoods of 2015, sales of coconut-based food have rocketed, its liquid form has even been referred to as an 'uniquely curative elixir' - indeed, the humble coconut is certainly having it's moment. Once confined to the filling of a Bounty bar, coconut now comes in an array of forms; Emily Jonzen arranges her book by texture and variety, with chapters divided into Milk & Water, Oil, Flour and Desiccated. Packed with an amazing range of recipes from savoury dishes such as Coconut-crusted Chicken or Stir-fried squid to sweet things such as Coconut Flour Pancakes and Coconut & Pistachio Brownies, Emily will have you going nuts over nature's finest and most versatile ingredient. The unassuming coconut is now taking its rightful place as the darling of the 'superfoods'.While they may not be much to look at, they are your best cooking companion - work these hairy wonder-fruits and reap the healthy benefits.

The Goodness of Raw Chocolate

Kathy Kordalis
Authors:
Kathy Kordalis

Why raw? When cacao beans are naturally fermented and dried rather than roasted, they retain much more of their natural goodness. The process also means the berry and coffee notes found in raw chocolate's flavour are intensified - similar to unsweetened dark chocolate. Plus it's very versatile, works in savoury or sweet dishes and, most importantly, makes you feel good in your body and soul. Part of The Goodness Of series, Raw Chocolate offers well-chosen recipes that minimise cooking to ensure that as any of raw chocolate's nutrients as possible are retained to deliver the best benefits. Kathy provides delicious recipes in an accessible, light and easy way for a wide variety of home cooks, from a quick Berry and Raw Chocolate Smoothie to simple Roast Veg with Raw Chocolate Picada. With tips and tricks and a balanced approach to cooking healthy and nourishing food, she also offers vegan and dairy-free options and healthier twists on classics with a focus on flavour
