Grow Your Own, Eat Your Own

By Bob Flowerdew
Authors:
Bob Flowerdew
It is one thing to produce tomatoes or pumpkins - or any other fruit or vegetable for the table - as they come into season, but it becomes another when you realise that most crops in the garden arrive in gluts with no more to be had for another year unless you do something about it. This book shows you how to make the best use of your highly nutritious, home-grown produce. Bob begins in the garden, showing you how to achieve a more continuous crop as well as how to extend your harvest. He then steps into the kitchen to demonstrate the best way to preserve and cook your crop by bottling, drying, jamming and smoking it. He uses his intimate and comprehensive knowledge of each crop to advise you on how best to treat it and store it. Try making fruit leathers, which are great for kids; freeze your own apple juice so you can have it every day of the year; experiment with making liqueurs and wines; preserve nuts in chocolate, and many, many more ingenious ideas.

Authors:
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.

    Greedy Girl's Diet

    By Nadia Sawalha
    Authors:
    Nadia Sawalha
    Nadia Sawalha has always loved cooking, but until recently rarely ate her own food. Like a lot of women, whilst her family tucked in to delicious dishes, she nibbled on diet food. Later, ravenously hungry, she binged, somehow convincing herself that the calories didn't count if nobody saw her eating them. Two years ago, after decades of fluctuating weight, she decided enough was enough: * She wasn't going to start a new diet tomorrow. * She wasn't going to start a new diet ever again. * She was going to eat normal meals with her family and, most importantly, she was going to do so for the rest of her life. Since then, Nadia has lost and kept off 31/2 stone, by simply throwing away the diet books. Instead she shaved off the hidden calories, all without anyone noticing. A little less oil here, a different cut of meat there; brown rice instead of white, more herbs, spices and colour; and a dessert every day! The result is The Greedy Girl's Diet, which is packed with more than 100 delicious recipes, and Nadia's invaluable tips and advice on how to achieve a slim, fit and healthy body.

    GI Diet

    By Antony Worrall Thompson
    Authors:
    Antony Worrall Thompson
    The Glycaemic Index (GI) is a measure of how fast carbohydrates are broken down by your body and therefore how fast they raise blood sugar levels. Unlike other diets, it distinguishes between different types of carbohydrates, so that you don't have to eliminate any food groups, allowing you to eat a balanced range of foods and ensuring that your weight loss is steady and healthy. And your diet is easier to follow! Foods are divided up into low, medium and high GI. Low-GI foods are slow to digest, making you feel less hungry and helping you lose weight. The GI of a dish can be affected by a number of factors - fibre and fat content, preparation and cooking method. Antony Worrall Thompson and dietitian Mabel Blades have simplified it, so all you have to do is follow their advice and watch the weight fall off. The GI Diet will revolutionise your eating habits, and with over 100 delicious and specially crafted recipes that fit into daily life, including carbs that will help you stave off those hunger pangs, this is the easy way to lose weight and eat well.

    The Great Domaines of Burgundy: revised edition

    By Remington Norman
    Authors:
    Remington Norman
    Subdivided into hundreds of domaines, often family-run and sometimes covering no more than a few hectares, Burgundy can be offputtingly fragmented even to wine experts. In compiling this revised edition the authors revisited all the domaines that appeared in previous editions plus scores of 'rising stars', to select the very best and most interesting of them - and remove those that no longer come up to scratch. They have spoken to winemakers about their grapes, soil and techniques - and, of course, sampled their wines. Following on from the domaine-by-domaine guide are descriptions of the microclimates of the region, the most important grapes and wine styles, as well as tips on buying, storing and tasting wine and a rundown of recent vintages.
