How to eat a peach

Diana Henry
Authors:
Diana Henry

When Diana Henry was sixteen she started a menu notebook (an exercise book carefully covered in wrapping paper) in which she wrote up the meals she wanted to cook. She kept this book for years. Putting a menu together is still her favourite part of cooking. Menus aren't just groups of dishes that have to work on a practical level (meals that cooks can manage), they also have to work as a succession of flavours. But what is perhaps most special about them is the way they can create very different moods - menus can take you places, from an afternoon at the seaside in Brittany to a sultry evening eating mezze in Istanbul. They are a way of visiting places you've never seen, revisiting places you love and celebrating particular seasons. How to Eat a Peach contains many of Diana's favourite dishes in menus that will take you through the year and to different parts of the world.Praise for Simple:'This is everything I want from a cookbook: inspiration, intelligent company, great good-mood food, and beautiful writing' - Nigella Lawson

Thomas Pavitte
Authors:
Thomas Pavitte

Spiroglyphics are a totally original idea from the twisted mind of genius puzzle-designer, Thomas Pavitte! At first glance, spiroglyphics appear to be nothing but simple spirals. But if you look a little closer you'll see that the spiroglyphics are in fact two spirals, joined at the middle, and varying subtly in width as they wind to the centre. It's only when you pick up a pen and start to colour them that they come alive... Spiroglyphics: Around the World brings together a selection of landmarks from some of the world's favourite cities, including: · Paris · Berlin · New York · Rome · London · Barcelona · Hong KongFun to create and amazing to look at, the Spiroglyphics will blow your mind and make amazing artworks for your wall!
