Double the nutrition in every ingredient with this unfaddy blueprint for a healthier life, with more than 80 easy recipes.

'James Wong brings some welcome sanity to the world of healthy eating...its genius is his advice on how to get more nutrition from fruit and veg. It's fascinating, and better than cutting out food groups or paying for so-called superfoods' - delicious. magazine

SELECT a Braeburn apple over a Fuji and get almost double the antioxidants from a fruit that tastes just as sweet.

STORE strawberries on the counter, instead of in the fridge, and in just four days they will quadruple their heart-healthy compounds.

COOK broccoli with a teaspoon of mustard and send its levels of cancer-fighting potential skyrocketing ten-fold.

Between the rush to keep up with the latest miracle ingredient, anxiety about E-numbers and demonization of gluten/dairy/sugar (or the next foodie villain du jour) many of us are left in a virtual panic in the supermarket aisle. Tabloid headlines, 'free-from' labels and judgemental Instagram hashtags hardly help matters - so what should we be buying?

How to Eat Better strips away the fad diets, superfood fixations and Instagram hashtags to give you a straight-talking scientist's guide to making everyday foods far healthier (and tastier) simply by changing the way you select, store and cook them. No diets, no obscure ingredients, no damn spiralizer, just real food made better, based on the latest scientific evidence from around the world. With over 80 foolproof recipes to put the theory into practice, James Wong shows you how to make any food a superfood, every time you cook.

His book is so useful. It systematically sorts the wheat from the gluten-free chaff in terms of what is scientifically proven to be nutritionally beneficial amid the confusing fads and misinformation... As well as reassuring us about carbs, gluten and sugar, this book has a wealth of simple, applicable science. Plonk mushrooms on a windowsill for a couple of hours and they'll contain 100 times the vitamin D2 than if they were chopped into a soup straight from the fridge. Microwave kale and its polyphenol levels jump by 40 per cent. — Anna Maxted, The Times
Botanist James Wong has compiled the ultimate guide to every type of fruit and vegetable, from the ones we should always pick off the shelf to the ones we should avoid putting in our shopping baskets. — The Daily Mail

From the Oven to the Table

Diana Henry
Authors:
Diana Henry

Whether you're short of time or just prefer to keep things simple, From the Oven to the Table shows how the oven can do much of the work that goes into making great food. Diana Henry's favourite way to cook is to throw ingredients into a dish or roasting tin, slide them in the oven and let the heat behind that closed door transform them into golden, burnished meals. Most of the easy-going recipes in this wonderfully varied collection are cooked in one dish; some are ideas for simple accompaniments that can be cooked on another shelf at the same time. From quick after-work suppers to feasts for friends, the dishes are vibrant and modern and focus on grains, pulses and vegetables as much as meat and fish. With recipes such as Chicken Thighs with Miso, Sweet Potatoes & Spring Onions, Roast Indian-spiced Vegetables with Lime-Coriander Butter, and Roast Stone Fruit with Almond and Orange Flower Crumbs, Diana shows how the oven is the most useful bit of kit you have in your kitchen. Praise for How to Eat a Peach:'This is an extraordinary piece of food writing, pitch perfect in every way. I couldn't love anyone who didn't love this book.' - Nigella Lawson'...her best yet...superb menus evoking place and occasion with consummate elegance' - Financial TimesFood Book of the Year at the André Simon Food & Drink Book Awards 2019

'The author of The Edible Balcony with 100 ingenious ideas for gardening on a budget.' The Bookseller'Alex Mitchell's new book Gardening on a Shoestring offers a delectable range of ways to create a garden on a budget.' The Independent In our increasingly busy and chaotic world, more and more of us are turning to gardening as a way to create a pleasant space to be in. However, as we continue to tighten our purse strings, the cost can make the pastime a source of further stress rather than one of pleasure.

Packed with money-saving tips, it combines classic gardening skills with simple, creative ideas. Sometimes it's about going back to the old ways of doing things, techniques in danger of being forgotten; other times it's about adapting to the new, saving money on equipment by making your own from inexpensive materials or knowing how to get bargains from nurseries and garden centres. So learn how to prune before you panic buy, grow food for peanuts, create pots for a pittance, propagate plants for nothing and make your own plant feed from weeds - all for next to nothing.
