    From the sparkles on the cupcakes to the jars of Love Hearts on the dresser, from the postcards on the mirro to the pink Roberts radio, it just makes you smile. Somehow it evokes the Kings Road boutiques of the Seventies, open-top cars cruising in the sunshine, teenage trysts in milk bars, and glitter balls in discos. Now you can bring the sparkle into your home, as Love Bakery captures the sense of fun that has made a community take a shop to its heart. Sam Blears encourages you to let your imagination run riot, and to use her moodboards, just-in-case cupboard, and glittering decorations to create your own versions of her much-loved cakes. You'll discover recipes for cupcakes, love pops, love shots, cuptails and whoopie pies; fabulous hidden flavours such as the Peruvian Bear Cupcake's secret marmalade centre; plus fantastic ideas and templates for co-ordinating party themes and giftwrapping. Take the fear out of baking, replace it with fun and glitter, and you'll find there's nothing as delicious as a cupcake baked from the heart.

    'the best food reference work ever to appear in the English language ...read it and be dazzled' Bee Wilson, New Statesman First published in 1999, the ground-breaking Oxford Companion to Food was an immediate success and won prizes and accolades around the world. Its blend of serious food history, culinary expertise, and entertaining serendipity, was and remains unique. Interest in food, cooking, and the culture surrounding food has grown enormously in the intervening period, as has the study of food and food history. University departments, international societies, and academic journals have sprung up dedicated to exploring the meaning of food in the daily lives of people around the world, alongside an ever-increasing number of articles, books, programmes, and websites in the general media devoted to the discussion of food, making the Oxford Companion to Food more relevant than ever. Already a food writing classic, this Companion combines an exhaustive catalogue of foods, be they biscuits named after battles, divas or revolutionaries; body parts (from nose to tail, toe to cerebellum); or breads from the steppes of Asia or the well-built ovens of the Mediterranean; with a richly allusive commentary on the culture of food, expressed in literature and cookery books, or as dishes peculiar to a country or community. While building on the Companion's existing strengths, Tom Jaine has taken the opportunity to update the text and alert readers to new perspectives in food studies. There is new coverage of attitudes to food consumption, production and perception, such as food and genetics, food and sociology, and obesity. New entries include terms such as convenience foods, drugs and food, Ethiopia, leftovers, medicine and food, pasta, and many more. There are also new entries on important personalities who are of special significance within the world of food, among them Clarence Birdseye, Henri Nestle, and Louis Pasteur. In its new edition the Companion maintains its place as the foremost food reference resource for study and home use.
