  • Roasts

    Laura Mason

    Product Code: BZJCT
    Hardback
    The best traditional recipes for roasted dishes, from a Sunday beef roast with Yorkshire pudding and rack of lamb with herb crust to stuffed roast goose, pheasant and veal. Leading chef Laura Mason gives you all the best techniques for sourcing, preparing and roasting all kinds of meat: beef, lamb, pork, chicken, turkey, duck, goose, and various game, including partridge, grouse and woodcock. To make the absolute most of this most prized food, the author explains the various cuts of meat (and what cuts work best with various recipes) and roasting times for a rare or well done piece of meat. Plus, of course, she covers the use of marinating, barding, larding, basting and dredging. The recipes would not be complete without a range of potato and vegetable dishes that are ideal accompaniments. From the best roast potatoes and mash to gratins, gravies and sauces. But the best part of any roast is often the leftover meat that makes the best ingredient for leftover meals. A joint of meat can stretch a very long way, from Shepherd pies, rostis, soups, stews, and much more; the life of a roast can be the source of more than one delicious meal.

  • The United States of Pizza

    Craig W. Priebe

    Product Code: ANWUL
    Hardback
    Recipes for homegrown pies from all regions of the country. Chef Craig Priebe has scoured the countryside, stopping in promising pizzerias to discover the tastiest pies. Smoked ham and cheddar? Roasted cauliflower and salsa verde? These toppings would be blasphemous in Naples, but in America anything goes-anything that tastes delicious, that is. His findings are collected here-stellar examples representing every style of pizza. What makes this collection of prize recipes especially fun is that each one has its own personality reflecting its local influences. From Seattle's Serious Pie comes pizza with white bean puree, asparagus, and Parmesan; from Los Angeles's Mozza, squash blossoms with burrata. The legendary Pizzeria Bianco in Phoenix offers up a pie with red onion, rosemary, and Arizona pistachios, while Louisiana Pizza Kitchen brings us one with crawfish etouffe. Also included are blueprints for every type of dough (from Sicilian and sourdough to New York and gluten-free), a range of adaptable base sauces, an introduction covering tools and techniques, and an address book for all the pizzerias featured. The United States of Pizza shows that the country is not so much a melting pot, but instead a giant pie bubbling over with a fabulously diverse array of creative flavor combinations.

  • Curry

    Lizzie Collingham

    Product Code: ABYPV
    Paperback
    Curry changed and evolved according to the tastes of the various invaders of India. The Mughals brought with them the rice dishes of Persia; the Portuguese introduced the chilli peppers recently discovered by Christopher Columbus in the New World; and the Mrs Beetons and Eliza Actons of the British Raj added jam, carrots and apples to their curry recipes. The Raj also ensured that curry came the other way, from India to Britain - and today the British consume no less than 18 tonnes a year of their favourite chicken tikka masala, a dish which purists claim is not Indian at all, but meat in gravy whipped up with a few spices (and sometimes a can of tomato soup!). Almost every Indian dish is a fusion of different food traditions. This book, which tells the story of such dishes, and the people who invented, discovered, cooked and ate them, is vivid, entertaining - and delicious.
