Nick Nairn Cook School Cookbook

By Nick Nairn

  • Hardback
  • £25.00

Nick Nairn has a strong media profile having recently won Great British Menu, cooking the main course for the Queen's 80th birthday dinner. The internationally renowned cook school attracts thousands of visitors every year from all over the world. All techniques and recipes have been tested hundreds of times and are explained simply and accurately, accompanied by stunning photography.

Everyone thinks they know how to cook a steak. But do you know how to listen to your pan to find out whether it's too hot or too cold? How do you know when it's rare or well done? And what type of steak should you be cooking anyway? The Nick Nairn Cook School Cookbook cuts through this kitchen confusion by breaking down recipes into basic techniques, produce and equipment needed and includes tips from some of the country's top chefs. Split into three sections, the book is structured as a learning progression. From First Steps such as choosing and using produce, essential equipment and the philosophy of cooking to Essential Techniques, with easy-to-follow step-by-step photography and on to recipes including useful techniques and exercises to test your skills. You will progress from the simplest recipes to dishes for a dinner party for your friends or a satisfying supper for your family.

Wagamama Ways With Noodles

Hugo Arnold
Authors:
Hugo Arnold

Ways with Noodles takes its inspiration from Wagamama's core expertise - noodles: how to cook, serve and eat them. Hugely versatile, noodles turn up in soups, side dishes, as a nest for meat, fish or vegetables, as a bed for curry or in a salad. They can be stir-fried or dressed, or poached in a heady broth, aromatics being provided by freshly chopped herbs. And they are healthy too: high in complex carbohydrates, low in fat, while most recipes make much use of fresh vegetables and fish. Try the mouthwatering recipes, which include Wide-Ribbon Hot-Pot with Seven Vegetables, Chargrilled Chicken, Soba and Miso Soup, and Marinated Salmon Ramen. Look no further for delicious noodle recipes for every occasion, from appetisers to family meals to elegant dinner party dishes.

Nadia Sawalha

We've all been there: you start a diet with the best of intentions, but, after a busy day at work or a nightmare journey home, the thought of spending an age chopping vegetables for a salad or gloomily sipping a flavourless soup is just too much. Before you know it, you're reaching for the frozen pizza or dialling the number of your favourite takeaway. That's where Nadia comes in. In Greedy Girl's Diet, she proved that healthy food doesn't have to be dull and that you can still have treats without overindulging. Now she's back, with a host of family-friendly, healthy and nutritious recipes (including her famous desserts!) that can be prepared and on the table in no time. Greedy Girl's Diet: Second Helpings is full of delicious, diet-friendly dishes, with one chapter specialising in ten-minute meals, another for half-hour dinners - perfect for a weeknight - and a whole host of lunchbox suggestions. There's a section on guilt-free 'junk' food, a guide to making takeaway-style dishes without the calories, and even an emergency three-day detox for when you just have to fit into that dress.
