From just a few friends for drinks and snacks in the kitchen to a sophisticated soiree for everyone you know, Kay Plunkett-Hogge draws upon her background in the worlds of film and fashion and her youth in Mad Men-era Bangkok to create the ultimate guide to making your evening as easy as ABC. Kay's approach to throwing a party is to keep it simple (yet stylish), plan ahead and, above all, enjoy it. The 80 cocktail recipes are organised by base spirit, with chapters on Gin, Vodka, Rum etc, and the 40 canape recipes are grouped into Vegetarian, Fish & Seafood and Meat. As Kay writes in the book's introduction: 'Just the sound of ice being shaken, preferably to a rhythm all of its own, is enough to bring a smile to anyone's face. It's the promise of sweet relief, of good times, good friends and good conversation. Just make mine a Martini.'

The symptoms of coeliac disease in children typically appear three to five months after first consuming gluten-containing foods. Symptoms may include poor appetite, irritability, vomiting and diarrhoea.

It is therefore important to introduce a gluten-free diet to your child as soon as they're diagnosed. Phil Vickery has developed 70 scrumptious dishes suitable for children of all ages - from babies to toddlers to school-age kids. Baby recipes include Potato Moussaka and Pink Poached Salmon, while toddlers will smile when fed Minty Peas with Lamb or Lemon Chicken, Sweetcorn and Tarragon. One of the hardest parts of cooking for children on a gluten-free diet can be the pressure to prepare a healthy lunch that is 'just like everyone else's'. You can send your kids off to school with Phil's Quesadilla, Berry Smoothie or Chocolatey Peanut Butter Crispy Rice Treat and they'll be the envy of all their friends.
