Cook Slow

Dean Edwards
Authors:
Dean Edwards

'There is a time and a place for all types of cooking, but it was the process of slow cooking that really got my creative juices flowing and reinvigorated my passion for food. Since the day I started to cook, it wasn't just the end result that I loved, it was the process. The chopping, stirring, simmering and tasting along the way, makes the experience...I believe that cooking food slowly is the ideal method for transforming basic ingredients into something very special.' - Dean EdwardsCook Slow features 90 delicious slow cooker recipes, all with conventional oven options, which will make you fall back in love with food again. Dean's fresh approach allows you to fit the enjoyment of planning, preparing and creating a meal into a busy life.

Mediterranean

Susie Theodorou
Authors:
Susie Theodorou

Eating healthily has never been easier with Susie Theodorou's new book Mediterranean. Susie explores how the Mediterranean diet is a lifestyle choice and a pattern of eating based on rural life where people used to eat what they grew and enjoy it communally. Her approach embraces seasonal and nutritious foods, without the strict regime of a diet book. She does not focus on weight loss or weight gain but instead promotes a healthier and happier way of life.Raised by Greek-Cypriot parents on a diet of freshly picked, plucked and cooked food, Susie knows first-hand the benefits of eating traditional Mediterranean dishes. And because you are focusing on simple combinations of exceptional ingredients, this is cooking on a budget. A self-confessed 'lazy cook', Susie has multiple ideas for using olives, tomatoes, tinned fish, white cheese, home-made hummus, and simple dressings for meat and fish. There are also tips on how to feed more friends with less food, how to stock a Mediterranean larder to be proud of and how to eat seasonally.And with recipes like Pan-seared Figs with Pecorino and Rocket, Charred Mixed Greens with Fennel and Lemons, Courgette and Dill Fritters, and Fish En Papillotte with Capers & Tomatoes, you will be inspired to cook up a Mediterranean feast any day of the week.

Rawia Bishara, Jumana Bishara, Rawia Bishara

She believes one of the greatest assets of Middle Eastern cuisine is its inherent fluidity, its remarkable capacity to adapt and transform over time. In Levant, she offers more than 100 recipes that represent a new modern style. These are the very best of the dishes she has developed over the last twenty years in her New York City restaurant for the contemporary palate. Relying on a traditional pantry (including olive oil, tahini, za'atar, sumac), she updates classic flavour profiles to dazzling effect. The Mediterranean diet has always been a healthy one, with so many of what we now call `superfoods' at its base. But here Rawia takes it a step further by focusing on dishes that are naturally vegetarian or vegan and gluten-free, as well as meat dishes where vegetables take the leading role. These recipes represent the way more and more people eat and cook today. Among them are Cauliflower `Steak' with Pomegranate Molasses, Roasted Beetroot Hummus, Jerusalem Artichoke and Beef Stew, Peppers with Walnut Stuffing and Freekeh and Butternut Squash Salad. Levant explores the sensational cross-cultural possibilities of culinary exchange; it sets the path for the future of Middle Eastern cooking.
