    In this informative and amusing book, newly revised and updated, Simon Hoggart provides a highly personal selection of 100 exciting and eclectic wines that are invariably good value (including 10 new ones). Life's Too Short to Drink Bad Wine is aimed at the amateur wine lover prepared occasionally to spend a little more than supermarket prices to get something special. Simon eschews pretentious 'wine-speak' yet describes his encounters with each of them so wittily you will be sure to remember them. Whether or not you have the pleasure of drinking all of the featured wines, you will certainly enjoy every page. The wines are arranged alphabetically with entries interspersed with interesting features varying from how to read a wine label or on how to buy wine, to an account of the Judgment of Paris, when Californian wines beat the French in a blind tasting. From the 100 Simon has selected he has awarded ten of them Top 10 status. At the back of the book is an extensive source list of wine makers, distributors and merchants, with complete details, including websites, for ease of ordering.

    "The aim of this book is to completely inspire people who have no interest in food to have a go" Jamie Oliver

    Sixty years ago food was in short supply and malnutrition rates were high. 'The Ministry of Food' was set up to teach the public how to make the best use of the food available to them. Fast forward to the present day, where we have unlimited choices and plenty of food, yet we're living in a world of junk food, additives and preservatives. Our war is now against obesity, as most people have little or no idea about how to cook and what makes a balanced diet. We need to learn from the past. We need to look back at the way our grandmothers and great-grandmothers cooked - wholesome, tasty food that was simple and quick to prepare.

    If you're a complete beginner in the kitchen, Jamie's promise to you is that you'll be making some great dinners within hours of reading his book. A little knowledge and a few basic tools can go a long way, and this book is your first step ...

A new wave of artisanal producers is bringing a superlative range of high-quality raw ingredients to a wider market, from the freshest wild salmon and oysters to award-winning marsh-fed lamb, farmhouse cheeses and black pudding, and delis and department stores around the world are now stocking many of these high-quality ingredients for the first time. Written by accomplished Irish food writer Nuala Cullen, Deliciously Irish takes a new look at traditional Irish fare. Fish and seafood feature largely, as do fresh vegetables and fruit, with delicious suggestions for desserts and cakes. More than a fabulous cookbook Deliciously Irish, is also a photographic record of the landscapes of Ireland, highlighting especially her wild west coast. Come wind, rain, sun, or snow, it is clear from these images that Ireland is one of the most unspoilt countries in Europe. Deliciously Irish presents a taste of its finest food and an equally evocative selection of its beautiful landscape.

    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. If left untreated, coeliac disease can lead to malnutrition, osteoporosis and, particularly worrying in children, stunted growth and development. 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.

    Written in a style similar to that of Nigel Slater's multi-award-winning food memoir 'Toast', this is a celebration of the glory, humour, eccentricities and embarrassments that are the British at Table. The British have a relationship with their food that is unlike that of any other country. Once something that was never discussed in polite company, it is now something with which the nation is obsessed. But are we at last developing a food culture or are we just going through the motions? 'Eating for England' is an entertaining, detailed and somewhat tongue-in-cheek observation of the British and their food, their cooking, their eating and how they behave in restaurants, with chapters on -- amongst other things -- dinner parties, funeral teas, Indian restaurants, dieting and eating whilst under the influence. Written in Nigel Slater's trademark readable style, 'Eating for England' highlights our idiosyncratic attitude towards the fine art of dining.

    Whenever I hear the word curry, I'm filled with a longing for spicy hot food with the fragrance of cumin, cloves and cinnamon. I see deep red colours from lots of Kashmiri chillis, tinged with a suggestion of yellow from turmeric. I think of the tandoor oven, and slightly scorched naan shining with ghee and garlic. When Indians talk of their food, they talk about their life. To understand this country, you need to understand curry. What makes a good curry? Sensual spicy aromas or thick, creamy sauces? Rich, dark dals or crispy fried street snacks? Rick journeys through India to find the answer, searching this colourful, chaotic nation in search of the truths behind our love affair with its food. Chefs, home cooks and street vendors hold the key to unlocking the secrets of these complex and diverse flavours - and Rick's travels take him to the heart of both their long-held traditions and most modern techniques. He uncovers recipes for fragrant kormas, delicate spiced fish and slow-cooked biryanis, all the while gathering ideas and inspiration for his own take on that elusive dish - the perfect curry.
