Tunes into credit crunch anxieties - during 2008, Britain's personal debt increased by GBP1 million every 7.3 minutes (GBP1,449 billion at end July 2008) Today a third of all groceries we buy will end up in the dustbin - Food From Plenty will help us to buy more wisely and use everything we have to best effect Food From Plenty contains invaluable reference and recipes to help us cook sustainably, often using ingredients unfamiliar to us but that our ancestors knew well Packed with over 300 recipes and ideas - perfect for ingredients we're not used to cooking with.

Our feelings about food and our attitude towards it are changing. Before long it won't just be considered sensible to care about how and what we cook and how much we waste - it will be unacceptable not to. But Food From Plenty is not another tome bemoaning global warming and dwindling fish stocks. It is a book about pleasure, about the great food you can have without spending loads of money or depleting the planet's resources. Diana Henry shows you how to save money by cooking ahead, using up gluts from the garden, and how to cook with respect for sustainability and resources. Her delicious recipes originate from all over the world - from Sicily to the Sahara - and turn 'going without' on its head to make it a pleasure.

Menus that Made History

Alex Johnson, Vincent Franklin
Authors:
Alex Johnson, Vincent Franklin

This fascinating miscellany of menus from around the world will educate as well as entertain, delighting both avid foodies and the general reader.Each menu provides an insight into its particular historical moment - from the typical food on offer in a nineteenth-century workhouse to the opulence of George IV's gargantuan coronation dinner. Some menus are linked with a specific and unforgettable event such as The Hindenburg's last flight menu or the variety of meals on offer for First, Second and Third Class passengers on board RMS Titanic, while others give an insight into sport, such as the 1963 FA Cup Final Dinner or transport and travel with the luxury lunch on board the Orient Express. Also included are literary occasions like Charles' Dickens 1868 dinner at Delmonicos in New York as well as the purely fictional and fantastical fare of Ratty's picnic in The Wind in the Willows.(p) 2017 Octopus Publishing Group

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
