Nadia Sawalha

We've all been there: you start a diet with the best of intentions, but, after a busy day at work or a nightmare journey home, the thought of spending an age chopping vegetables for a salad or gloomily sipping a flavourless soup is just too much. Before you know it, you're reaching for the frozen pizza or dialling the number of your favourite takeaway. That's where Nadia comes in. In Greedy Girl's Diet, she proved that healthy food doesn't have to be dull and that you can still have treats without overindulging. Now she's back, with a host of family-friendly, healthy and nutritious recipes (including her famous desserts!) that can be prepared and on the table in no time. Greedy Girl's Diet: Second Helpings is full of delicious, diet-friendly dishes, with one chapter specialising in ten-minute meals, another for half-hour dinners - perfect for a weeknight - and a whole host of lunchbox suggestions. There's a section on guilt-free 'junk' food, a guide to making takeaway-style dishes without the calories, and even an emergency three-day detox for when you just have to fit into that dress.

The World Atlas of Coffee

James Hoffmann
Authors:
James Hoffmann

Coffee has never been better, or more interesting, than it is today. Coffee producers have access to more varieties and techniques than ever before and we, as consumers, can share in that expertise to make sure the coffee we drink is the best we can find. Where coffee comes from, how it was harvested, the roasting process and the water used to make the brew are just a few of the factors that influence the taste of what we drink. Champion barista and coffee roaster James Hoffmann examines these key factors, looking at varieties of coffee, the influence of terroir, how it is harvested and processed, the roasting methods used, through to the way in which the beans are brewed.Country by country - from Bolivia to Zambia - he then identifies key characteristics and the methods that determine the quality of that country's output. Along the way we learn about everything from the development of the espresso machine, to why strength guides on supermarket coffee are really not good news. This is the first book to chart the coffee production of over 35 countries, encompassing knowledge never previously published outside the coffee industry. For everyone who wants to understand more about coffee and its wonderful nuances and possibilities, this is the book to have.
