  • River Cottage Handbook No.11 - Chicken & Eggs

    Mark Diacono

    Product Code: AGUAZ
    Hardback
    Chickens are a fantastic addition to a garden or outdoors space - you don't have to live in the back of beyond to have a few clucking around and giving you fresh eggs. They come in all shapes and sizes: some are layers, some are just born to strut. Mark Diacono begins at the basics, showing how you can raise chickens from eggs, and look after them once they start laying their own. The first part of Chicken & Eggs explains how to think ahead about what kind of chickens you want and how many to get, whether you are going for a breed that lays eggs regularly, or that you might eventually use for eating, or that simply looks decorative. You can choose from Orpingtons, Derbyshire redcaps, Muffed Old English Game, Leghorns and many more. Mark then goes on to show how you can breed chickens, encourage them to lay, work out what kind of eggs you have (are they destined for the eggcup, or will they hatch into baby chicks?), and take care of them day to day, as well as how you can go about getting the birds on the table. The final part of the book is a recipe section that goes far beyond the roast, with lots of delicious ideas for fresh eggs or home-reared chicken. With an introduction by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, this is an essential guide for anyone who can't stop thinking about chicks.

  • Cheese & Dairy

    Steven Lamb

    Product Code: BMKSH
    Hardback
    Nothing beats a really good cheese. These days you can buy great dairy products locally, made using high-quality ingredients and with a unique flavour of their own. The next step is to try your hand at making yoghurt, labneh, mozzarella and even deliciious matured cheeses yourself. The River Cottage ethos is all about knowing the whole story behind what you put on the table; and as Steven Lamb explains in this thorough, accessible guide, the key ingredient is milk. He shows you exactly what to do to take it from its liquid form to a wide range of dairy products, from clotted cream to a washed-rind cheese. There are also plenty of gorgeous recipes that make the most of cheese and other dairy goods - as you'd hope, they involve such pleasures as dunking carbs into a pot of melty cheese; biting down on a delicate cheese wafer; or whipping up the best ever cheesecake. With an introduction by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and plenty of helpful photographs, this book is the indispensable guide to crafting and enjoying cheese and other dairy products.

  • Milk

    Mark Kurlansky

    Product Code: BZJMM
    Paperback
    Mark Kurlansky's first global food history since the bestselling Cod and Salt; the fascinating cultural, economic and culinary story of milk and all things dairy - with recipes throughout While mother's milk may be the essence of nourishment, it is the milk of other mammals that humans have cultivated ever since the domestication of animals more than 10,000 years ago. Today, milk is a test case in the most pressing issues in food politics, from industrial farming and animal rights to GMOs, the locavore movement and advocates for raw milk, who controversially reject pasteurisation. Profoundly intertwined with human civilisation, milk has a compelling and surprisingly global story to tell, and historian Mark Kurlansky is the perfect person to tell it. Tracing the liquid's diverse history from antiquity to the present, he details its curious and crucial role in cultural evolution, religion, nutrition, politics, and economics.

  • Melted Cheese

    Ryland Peters & Small

    Product Code: BZIVX
    Hardback
    Perfect for the comfort food season, this book features over 65 decadent recipes oozing with melted cheesey goodness. Whether you are hangry, hungover or just longing to indulge in a little greediness, Melted Cheese is the book to turn to! From alpine-inspired raclette and fondue to grilled cheese toasties, croquettes, pasta bakes, potato gratins and more, you could never have imagined there were so many inspired ways to serve melted cheese. Different cheeses provide different levels of melty goodness, and there are tips included on this, too: mozzarella, for example, is a great stringy melter due to its high moisture content, Gruyere, on the other hand, has a stronger flavour, but also melts beautifully under the grill/broiler (due to its high acid content). From solo nacho bowls to pizza banquets, there is no shame in enjoying melted cheese on your own, but equally it is good to share the love too. A recipe from this book will make any big night in an indulgent experience to remember!

  • Reinventing the Wheel

    Bronwen Percival

    Product Code: BWJCD
    Paperback
    Wine and Spirits Book of the Year 2017 In little more than a century, the drive towards industrial and intensive farming has altered every aspect of the cheesemaking process, from the bodies of the animals that provide the milk to the science behind the microbial strains that ferment it. Reinventing the Wheel explores what has been lost as expressive, artisanal cheeses that convey a sense of place have given way to the juggernaut of homogeneous factory production. While Bronwen and Francis Percival lament the decline of farmhouse cheese and reject the consequences of industrialisation, this book's message is one of optimism. Scientists have only recently begun to reveal the significance of the healthy microbial communities that contribute to the flavour and safety of cheese, while local producers are returning to the cheese-making methods of their parents and grandparents. This smart, engaging book sheds light on the surprising truths and science behind the dairy industry. Discover how, one experiment at a time, these dynamic communities of researchers and cheesemakers are reinventing the wheel.

    Cheese, unlike other foods or culinary ingredients, is not a recently ""fashionable"" product. Its roots go back to ancient times. It was one of the favourite foods of the Greeks and Romans and in Egypt it was considered as one of their basic foods. Cheese now appears on the menus of the most luxurious restaurants, is a faithful companion for excursions and picnics, is a snack for children of almost all ages, is the food of the poor, is the joy of the gourmet, is the sandwich of choice... It is a universal panacea inside and outside the kitchen, and this is what this book reflects.

  • Cheddar Gorge

    John Squire

    Product Code: BSJGY
    Hardback
    Where can you read about a monstrous cheese big enough to hold a girl of 13 inside? Or that the invention of the bicycle directly, and poorly, impacted sales of cheddar? Or that some of the first cheese makers hid gold coins inside their wheels of dairy as a sales tool? Brethren, the writer calls you this because he hopes that you are `cheese-minded' like himself. This classic and charming book, a timeless love letter to English cheeses was first published in 1937, newly rediscovered and charmingly illustrated by EH Shepard. It is a treasure trove of wonderful anecdotes including the tale of the monstrous cheese big enough to hold a 13-year-old inside, the Stilton that purred like a cat and the famous cheesemaker in Manchester who selected which Cheshire cheese to sell based on where the mice had been nibbling `as they were the best judges of a good cheese'. Sir John Squire, a notable journalist of the time, collected together `a galaxy of talent', with the aim of making this `one of the most delightful and entertaining gift books that has ever been published'. Each of the distinguished ten contributors champion an individual cheese, setting forward their passionate and compelling arguments, celebrating the differences and delights of each type. Through their explorations, the chequered beauties of the English landscape unfolds. It will certainly whet the appetite for English cheese, for that is ultimately what matters most, as after all `the only way to learn about cheese is to eat it.'

  • The Modern Dairy

    Annie Bell

    Product Code: BCXEM
    Paperback
    After years of being treated like the pariah in the fridge, dairy is making a comeback. A raft of recent health and nutritional studies have shown that cutting milk, cream and cheese from our diet has made us deficient in essential nutrients. If the benefits of eating more dairy cannot be disputed, the challenge of how we include it in our diet without gaining weight remains. In The Modern Dairy, Annie Bell revisits and revises old habits, overturns myths and puts paid to bad science and misconceptions with recipes that celebrate dairy but demonstrate how it can be used in new, healthier ways. Most cheeses, for example, come loaded with flavour, so can be used sparingly - you can can make a fab salad with a pile of crips leaves, walnuts and pistachios, plus a few shavings of Parmesan, which will allow you to omit the salt in the dressing and go easy on the oil, and it will be as delicous as it is healthy.
