    A Change of Appetite

    By Diana Henry
    Authors:
    Diana Henry
    'Cookery Book of The Year' Guild of Food Writers AwardsShortlisted for the André Simon AwardsNominated for The Bookseller Cookery Book Award, Sponsored by FoylesWhat happened when one of today's best-loved food writers had a change of appetite? Here are the dishes that Diana Henry created when she started to crave a different kind of diet - less meat and heavy food, more vegetable-, fish- and grain-based dishes - often inspired by the food of the Middle East and Far East, but also drawing on cuisines from Georgia to Scandinavia.Curious about what 'healthy eating' really means, and increasingly bombarded by both readers and friends for recipes that are 'good for you', Diana disocovered a lighter, fresher way of eating. From a Cambodian salad of prawns, grapefruit, toasted coconut and mint or North African mackerel with cumin to blood orange and cardamom sorbet, the magical dishes in this book are bursting with flavour, goodness and colour. Peppering the recipes is Diana's inimitable writing on everything from the miracle of broth to the great carbohydrate debate. Above all, this is about opening up our palates to new possibilities. There is no austerity here, simply fabulous food which nourishes body and soul.

    Clondeglass: Creating a Garden Paradise

    By Dermot O'Neill
    Authors:
    Dermot O'Neill
    When Dermot O'Neill bought Clondeglass over a decade ago, the derelict house and totally overgrown walled garden were on the edge of collapse. Here, Dermot takes us on a tour of the different sections of the totally renovated garden, showing his particular plant passions and interests, covering trees, shrubs, perennials, bulbs and structures. We start in the Rose Garden, exploring the wide range of roses, before moving onto the Double Borders and Courtyard. Inside the Polytunnel we find a host of vegetables and more tropical plants. Then along the West Border we come to The Temple, a timber haven to relax and escape the rain! The Potager is devoted to vegetables and fruit trees, including a number of rare species and Irish heritage varieties. Finally The Poultry, with Dermot's own Toulouse geese. Remarkable before and after photographs document the enormous changes, as well as plans to show what's still to come.
