Throughout the book, the authors share personal anecdotes about their recipes and give handy cheats to make things easier for the home cook, including time-saving tips and alternative ingredients.

Lillie O'Brien

Jam cannot be rushed. These preserving recipes may be short on the page, but they're designed to stretch time, from when you first find and organise the ingredients, to when you stir the pot slowly and lovingly, then spread it on toast, and take the first magical bite. These innovative recipes, bubbling with fruit, nuts, herbs and spices, are separated into 5 seasons: FROST - biting, dark and cosy (Preserved Lemons, Seville Orange & Chamomile Marmalade) ALIVE - blossoming florals and awakenings (Peach & Fig leaf Jam, Salted Cherry Blossom, Wild garlic pesto)HOT - vivid sweetness (Nectarine & Flowering Thyme Jam, Strawberry & Wild Fennel Jam, Pickled Walnuts); BLUSH - smoky warmth and rich spice (Blackberry & Cocoa Nib Jam, Elderberry & Pomegranate Molasses, Tomato Jam, Marjoram Jelly) BARB - robust and bristling (Pear & Masala Jam, Pumpkin Jam, Damson Cheese). Lillie creates recipes to be lingered over, that inspire and give the confidence to be a little more adventurous in the preserving kitchen.

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 & Rocket, Charred Mixed Greens with Fennel & Lemons, Courgette & Dill Fritters, and Fish En Papillotte with Capers & Tomatoes, you will be inspired to cook up a Mediterranean feast any day of the week.

Levant

Rawia Bishara, Jumana Bishara, Rawia Bishara

`Cookery to me is about history and connection, but to remain vibrant, a cuisine must also evolve.' Thus author Rawia Bishara explains her approach in this book. 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. www.tanoreen.com @tanoreen

More Veg, Less Meat

Rachel De Thample
Authors:
Rachel De Thample

We eat twice the amount of meat we need to and only half the amount of vegetables that we are supposed to. We're all aware that cutting down on meat and dairy would significantly help reduce greenhouse gases, and also improve our health, but the majority of us do not want to cut it out entirely. Rachel de Thample reveals how you can reverse that statistic and pack your meals full of fresh plant-based ingredients. In More Veg Less Meat Rachel shows how to make the most of meat by buying good quality produce and eating it sparingly, but also how to the most of every bit of meat. This could mean spinning out a roast to last the week, or using lesser known cuts in imaginative ways. With 150 delicious recipes, such as Beef Miso Ginger Soup, Mayan Gold Chilli, and Lamb Burger with Roast Aubergine and Pistachio Mayonnaise, even the most hardened carnivore can be convinced that eating less meat is a good thing. With quick and easy ideas for seasonal vegetable dishes, as well as each recipe meeting recommended protein needs, you'll be eating a better balance of meat, fruit and veg in no time.
