By Devina Seth, Harneet Baweja, and Nirmal Save

  • Hardback
  • £25.00

An exciting collection of recipes from the founders of the hugely popular restaurant Gunpowder.

Named one of the top 20 new cookbooks of 2018 by the Independent

An exciting collection of recipes from the founders of the hugely respected Gunpowder restaurant. In this beautiful book, complete with stunning photography, Harneet, Devina and Nirmal have managed to capture the bustle and flavours of their childhoods in Kolkata, and the intricacy of true homestyle dishes from across India.

From Maa's Kashmiri Lamb Chops (which have garnered outstanding reviews from many restaurant critics) to Wild Rabbit Pulao, these exceptional recipes are impressively authentic, yet given a modern twist. Throughout the book, the authors share personal anecdotes about their recipes and give handy cheats to make things easier for the home cook, including time-saving tips and alternative ingredients. With chapters covering Small Plates, Big Plates, Sweet Plates & Drinks and Sides & Spice, Gunpowder is the perfect opportunity to create some of these widely admired dishes in your own home.

Biographical Notes

Harneet Baweja and his wife Devina Seth grew up in Kolkata, and from an early age food played an important role in both their families as they enjoyed recipes that had been passed down for generations. They moved to London in 2014 and, finding a gap in the market for home-style dishes that really capture the intricacy of Indian cooking, they set up Gunpowder with head chef Nirmal Save. Nirmal is originally from Mumbai, where he grew up on a farm and developed a keen interest in the ingredients and produce his mother and grandmother taught him to cook.

From the Oven to the Table

Diana Henry
Authors:
Diana Henry

Whether you're short of time or just prefer to keep things simple, From the Oven to the Table shows how the oven can do much of the work that goes into making great food. Diana Henry's favourite way to cook is to throw ingredients into a dish or roasting tin, slide them in the oven and let the heat behind that closed door transform them into golden, burnished meals. Most of the easy-going recipes in this wonderfully varied collection are cooked in one dish; some are ideas for simple accompaniments that can be cooked on another shelf at the same time. From quick after-work suppers to feasts for friends, the dishes are vibrant and modern and focus on grains, pulses and vegetables as much as meat and fish. With recipes such as Chicken Thighs with Miso, Sweet Potatoes & Spring Onions, Roast Indian-spiced Vegetables with Lime-Coriander Butter, and Roast Stone Fruit with Almond and Orange Flower Crumbs, Diana shows how the oven is the most useful bit of kit you have in your kitchen. Praise for How to Eat a Peach:'This is an extraordinary piece of food writing, pitch perfect in every way. I couldn't love anyone who didn't love this book.' - Nigella Lawson'...her best yet...superb menus evoking place and occasion with consummate elegance' - Financial TimesFood Book of the Year at the André Simon Food & Drink Book Awards 2019

Lesley Tellez
Authors:
Lesley Tellez

Eat Mexico is a love letter to the intricate cuisine of Mexico City, written by a young journalist who lived and ate there for four years. It showcases food from the city's streets: the football-shaped, bean-stuffed corn tlacoyo, topped with cactus and salsa; the tortas bulging with turkey confit and a peppery herb called papalo; the beer-braised rabbit, slow-cooked until tender. The book ends on a personal note, with a chapter highlighting the creative, Mexican-inspired dishes - such as roasted poblano oatmeal - that Lesley cooks at home in New York with ingredients she discovered in Mexico. Ambitious cooks and armchair travellers alike will enjoy Lesley's Eat Mexico.

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
