In fact, he designed a bestselling oyster knife, the pistol grip Paddyshucker. Rich in history and lore, The Oyster Companion weaves together anecdotes from the author's experience as a restaurateur and competitive shucker with practical information on everything from opening oysters with finesse to ordering hard-to-get bivalves online.

For the forager, the seashore holds surprising culinary potential. In this authoritative, witty book John Wright takes us on a trip to the seaside. But before introducing us to the various species to be harvested, he touches on such practicalities as conservation and the ethics of foraging; safety from tides, rocks and food poisoning; the law and access to the shore, our right to fish, landing sizes and seasons; and equipment such as nets, pots and hooks. Next comes the nitty-gritty: all the main British seashore species that one might be tempted to eat. The conservation status, taste and texture, availability, seasonality, habitat, collecting technique and biology of each species is covered; there are also quite a few gratuitous but fascinating diversions. The species covered include crustacea (brown shrimp, common crab, lobster, prawn, shore crab, spider crab, squat lobster, velvet swimming crab); molluscs (clams, cockle, dog whelk, limpet, mussel, oyster, razor clam, winkle); mushrooms; plants (alexanders, babbington's orache, fennel, frosted orache, marsh samphire, perennial wall rocket, rock samphire, sea beet, sea buckthorn, sea holly, sea kale, sea purslane, sea rocket, spear-leaved orache, wild cabbage, wild thyme); and seaweed (carragheen, dulse, gut weed, laver, pepper dulse, sea lettuce, sugar kelp, kelp). Finally, there are thirty brilliant recipes. Introduced by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, Edible Seashore is destined to join the other handbooks in the series as an indispensable household reference.

Caviar: piquant, luxurious and decadent, it is renowned the world over. A story of greed, indulgence, enterprise and hope, "Caviar: A Global History" starts by looking back to its heyday in Tsarist Russia, America and Europe in the Roaring Twenties, before telling the story of production, trade and consumption today. Renowned food writer and historian Nichola Fletcher takes the reader on a tour of the main areas of caviar production Russia, Iran, Europe and America investigating how overzealous entrepreneurs, as well as illegal fishing and black-market trade in the post-Soviet Caspian States, have contributed to the plight of the sturgeon, the victim of our insatiable desire for caviar. She examines the practical solutions to overfishing the development of sustainable sturgeon farming and the alternatives to sturgeon roe and discovers that it is possible to enjoy caviar with a clear conscience. It would be easy to write caviar off as an out-of-date and unsustainable indulgence, but Fletcher shows that the story is far more interesting and complex than that. She proves that there is hope for the future, and that we may consume with gusto one of life's most opulent foods.
