Five Seasons of Jam

By Lillie O'Brien

  • Hardback
  • £20.00

Jam cannot be rushed. These preserving recipes may be short on the page, but they're designed to stretch time, from when you first find and organise the ingredients, to when you stir the pot slowly and lovingly, then spread it on toast, and take the first magical bite.

'I'd love my shelves to be stocked with jars of pêche de vine and lemon jam, whitecurrant and lemon balm jelly, bergamot marmalade and cobnut and plum mincemeat, and enjoyed reading all the recipes with their intriguing and inviting flavour combinations.' Nigella Lawson
'Any day started with Lillie's jam is a good one.' Anna Jones
'A truly beautiful book. It is a delight to read and her recipes are excellent.' James Lowe, Lyles, London
'Lillie O'Brien and her wonderful preserves.' Claire Ptak, Violet Bakery

These innovative recipes, bubbling with fruit, nuts, herbs and spices, are separated into 5 seasons:

ALIVE/spring- blossoming florals and awakenings (Peach & Fig leaf Jam, Salted Cherry Blossom, Wild Garlic Pesto)
HOT/summer - vivid sweetness (Nectarine & Thyme Jam, Strawberry & Wild Fennel Jam, Pickled Walnuts)
BLUSH/early autumn - smoky warmth and rich spice (Blackberry & Cocoa Nib Jam, Elderberry & Pomegranate Molasses, Tomato Jam, Marjoram Jelly)
BARB/late autumn - robust and bristling (Pear & Masala Jam, Pumpkin Jam, Damson Cheese)
FROST/winter - biting, dark and cosy (Salted Mandarins, Seville Orange & Chamomile Marmalade)

Lillie creates recipes to be lingered over, that inspire and give confidence to be a little more adventurous in the preserving kitchen.

Wagamama Ways With Noodles

Hugo Arnold
Authors:
Hugo Arnold

Ways with Noodles takes its inspiration from Wagamama's core expertise - noodles: how to cook, serve and eat them. Hugely versatile, noodles turn up in soups, side dishes, as a nest for meat, fish or vegetables, as a bed for curry or in a salad. They can be stir-fried or dressed, or poached in a heady broth, aromatics being provided by freshly chopped herbs. And they are healthy too: high in complex carbohydrates, low in fat, while most recipes make much use of fresh vegetables and fish. Try the mouthwatering recipes, which include Wide-Ribbon Hot-Pot with Seven Vegetables, Chargrilled Chicken, Soba and Miso Soup, and Marinated Salmon Ramen. Look no further for delicious noodle recipes for every occasion, from appetisers to family meals to elegant dinner party dishes.
