This is her guide to cooking the Provençal way, for those who want to eat simply but well, who love to cook dishes that rhyme with the seasons, and who want to recreate the flavours of the Mediterranean at home, wherever that may be.

Chow Mezger, Alex Mezger
Authors:
Chow Mezger, Alex Mezger

This is a collection of innovative, lip-smackingly brilliant recipes celebrating ice-cream and the desserts that accompany it. This beautifully photographed book includes an introductory chapter on how to make classic and more unusual ice-cream flavours as well as sorbets and vegan options (from Roasted Strawberry and Buttermilk, No-churn Flat White Coffee to Vegan Malted Banana Ice Cream). Then ice-cream desserts and celebration recipes take centre stage, bringing fun to the kitchen (from Stacked Ice Cream Cheesecake with Figs and Cinnamon to Children's Ice Cream Cupcakes). Decadent desserts that are the perfect companion to ice cream, like Cocoa and Date Brownies and Granny Dorsey's Giant Meringues, add a baking element, whilst sundaes, shakes and cocktails give inspiration for all-hours entertaining. Toppings, of course, are showcased, with sauces, chunky honeycomb, homemade waffle cones, marshmallows and salted pecan brittle on offer so you can decorate and create your own desserts. This joyful selection is an homage to one of our favourite foods and, in the hands of the award-winning British brand Jude's, you know these recipes will be exciting and packed with flavour.

How to Feel the Fear and Eat It Anyway

Eve Simmons and Laura Dennison
Authors:
Eve Simmons and Laura Dennison

'One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.' - Virginia Woolf.The definition of 'healthy eating' has been chewed up, spat out and re-digested enough times to make Joe Public give up and seek out their nearest branch of McDonald's. Our mindless obsession with eating 'right' is such that we're now more concerned about what our Instagram followers think of a poorly lit picture of our dinner than we are of its effect on our own palate. Or, indeed, our happiness. We seem to be living in a time where we no longer eat with our hearts, emotions or heritage - but with what our waistlines (and followers) in mind.Not Plant Based are on a mission to help you love food again. The principle is very simple: eat what you like and don't worry about it. It's a menu that's especially delicious, 'guilt-free' and requires a hell of a lot less money spent in health food shops. Throughout the book, Laura and Eve call on experts to debunk myths and provide a balanced exploration of our attitude towards food, with some delicious recipes thrown in along the way. They discuss their own experiences of eating disorders and offer personal tips and coping mechanisms to help rid you of anxiety linked to food. No one is saying healthy eating is bad; there is simply a lot of misleading information out there. More to the point, food is so much more in the grand scheme of life than health: it's family, friends, enjoyment and memories. So go on, take a bite out of How To Feel the Fear and Eat It Anyway and learn to love your food all over again. It's SO mouth-wateringly good - we bet you'll be back for seconds.
