Salt & Time

Alissa Timoshkina
Authors:
Alissa Timoshkina

Salt & Time will transform perceptions of the food of the former Soviet Union, and especially Siberia - the crossroads of Eastern European and Central Asian cuisine - with 100 inviting recipes adapted for modern tastes and Western kitchens, and evocative storytelling to explain and entice. Why not try the restorative Solyanka fish soup (a famous Russian hangover cure), savour the fragrant Chicken with prunes or treat yourself to some Napoleon cake.'Often we need distance and time, both to see things better and to feel closer to them. This is certainly true of the food of my home country, Russia - or Siberia, to be exact. When I think of Siberia, I hear the sound of fresh snow crunching beneath my feet. Today, whenever I crush sea salt flakes between my fingers as I cook, I think of that sound. In this book I feature recipes that are authentic to Siberia, classic Russian flavour combinations and my modern interpretations. You will find dishes from the pre-revolutionary era and the Soviet days, as well as contemporary approaches - revealing a cuisine that is vibrant, nourishing, exciting and above all relevant no matter the time or the place.' - Alissa Timoshkina'If anyone had to write a Russian cookbook now, it would have to be her, and her book will end up being a classic' - Olia Hercules, author of Mamushka and Kaukasis

Authors:
Sophie Michell

They say you should never trust a skinny chef - but what if that skinny chef held the secret to losing weight without compromising on foodie pleasure? In her new book, executive chef Sophie Michell reveals the recipes she herself has used to lose weight despite spending all day, every day, surrounded by food. Sophie has developed this diet with an emphasis on flavour, so you'll never feel like you're missing out, even as you drop the pounds. The recipes have been carefully formulated to provide you with essential proteins and nutrients, and will leave you full of energy, with your taste buds satisfied and your body slimmer. With everything from smoothies and juices to brunches, packed lunches and impressive yet achievable mains, this diet allows you to really embrace your love of food. Enjoy a breakfast of Avocado and Chipotle Frittata, a dinner of Crisp Duck Wings with Miso Glaze and Kimchi Salad, and an array of tempting sweet dishes such as Hazelnut and Dark Chocolate Cake. The recipes are so tasty you'll want to keep cooking them long after you reach your goal weight, helping you to maintain it - as Sophie says, a successful diet is 'a life choice, not something you endure to lose the pounds. ' With the focus on flavour and enjoyment rather than calorie counting, it's time to diet like a chef.

Salt is Essential

Shaun Hill
Authors:
Shaun Hill

Food needs salt. The quantity is a matter of personal taste but some presence is essential and little is more disappointing from the eating perspective than a plate of food that looks fabulous and tastes of very little. It shows the cook's priorities are all wrong, that too much television cookery has been watched and not enough tasting and enjoyment indulged in.' So says Shaun Hill, who in this engaging exploration of his 50 years as a chef, brings his wealth of experience to the table, sharing what he has learnt so that the home cook can create truly remarkable dishes. Never one to shy away from controversy, he covers everything from why local and seasonal are not necessarily indicators of quality, to why soy beans are best left for cattle feed and Budapest is paradise for the greedy. The recipes range from Warm Rock Oysters with Spring Onion Butter Sauce to Pork in Shirtsleeves and Buttermilk Pudding with Cardamom. And although his commentary is undeniably witty, it's Shaun's knowledge and expert guidance that makes this book an invaluable tome for anyone who takes their food (but not themselves) seriously. 'This is a book you need to own; a lifetime's hard work in the kitchen distilled into sensible brevity. Shaun is a friend and a great cook.' Rick Stein
