    Through the authors' personal travels through China came the realisation that what is commonly perceived as 'Chinese food' in the Western world is only part of the story, and thus followed the inspiration to celebrate the lesser known, wonderfully diverse aspects of this ancient culture's cooking. There is a growing global appreciation for regional Chinese fare - but it is mostly unrepresented in Chinese restaurants. Kitchen and Suvalko strove to capture the essence of the simple home cooking and explore the variation in cuisine among the different regions. The result is a comprehensive compendium of dishes, divided into chapters by category, including: cold dishes, soups and hotpots, dumplings, breads and noodles, pork, chicken, fish, vegetables and desserts. Readers can delight in fermented foods from Shaoxing, river fish from Jiangxi province, smoked pork from Hunan, fish dumplings and flat breads from Shandong or bowls of fresh, steaming, soft tofu slathered in chilli and peppercorns from Sichuan villages. With food that is full of flavour, utilizes seasonal produce and is simple to prepare, and beautiful photographs shot on location, The Real Food of China will challenge everything you thought you knew about Chinese cooking!

    Refreshingly witty and readable guide to the world's most famous wine region. Every producer in the world with ambitions to make great red wine still looks to Bordeaux for inspiration and the region is brought to life by Oz with his evocative descriptions and personal anecdotes, accompanied by stunning photographs and maps. Oz turns his spotlight on each of the famous Bordeaux wine areas (including St-Emilion, Pomerol, Margaux and Pauillac). He also recommends hundreds of affordable modern Bordeaux wines for drinking today. Returning to his wine roots, Oz shows how, whatever crises may be affecting the French wine industry in general and the lower end of the market in particular, Bordeaux, is on the whole, in optimistic mode. However much we now appreciate wine from all over the world, there is still nothing quite as magical as the best bottles from the best producers in this historic wine region.
