Hamlyn All Colour Cookery: 200 Fab Fish Dishes
By Gee Charman
Experts in the UK advise us to eat two portions of fish each week, one of them being an oily fish such as salmon or tuna. Fish has long been considered beneficial to the health, making a delicious meal that is low in harmful saturated fats and, in the case of oily fish, high in omega-3 fatty acids. These essential fatty acids have been shown to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and lower blood pressure. Hamlyn All Colour Cookbook: 200 Fab Fish Dishes provides an array of delicious ideas for introducing more fish and seafood to your diet, including recipes for starters, soups, main courses and barbecues.
Hamlyn All Colour Cookery: 200 Recipes for Kids
By Emma Jane Frost
As parents, we all know that children can be notoriously difficult to cook for. Many of us fall into the habit of cooking the same dishes over and over again, simply because we cannot bear the idea of scraping wasted food into the bin at the end of a meal. However, a child's formative years are when they learn to accept and like new foods, and it is therefore of great importance to encourage them with new tastes and different textures as often as you can. Hamlyn All Colour Cookbook: 200 Recipes for Kids has been put together with this in mind, but also with the knowledge that children are generally fussy creatures and like their food to be simple and to look good. Each recipe has been photographed to show you exactly what you will be cooking (and what they will be eating), and has of course been tested for child-appeal. To prevent your children getting bored by the same meals, we have also added a creative variation at the end of each recipe.

Hugh Johnson In The Garden

Hugh's writings are filled with an eclectic mixture of topical, whimsical and humorous anecdotes and are organised to follow a gardener's monthly calendar.

This is a thematic book with a loosely chronological structure. An introductory chapter explains why garden restoration has become increasingly important and popular. Chapters then look at how modern technology has helped garden restoration; why certain gardens need restoring because their style is no longer fashionable or they have lost their original identity through neglect; and the need to restore gardens created by important designers or plantsmen, or gardens that have been destroyed or neglected because of war. A final chapter shows why major garden restorations contribute to gardening history. There is also a gazetteer of the gardens, indicating which ones can be visited by the public.
