    Every year, Top Gear dispatches correspondents to cover many serious stories around the world. Wherever they go, they ask tough questions and leave no stone unturned in search of the cold, hard truth. Questions such as: Is it possible to drive a Ferrari up a Scottish ski slope? Exactly how far can you drive a bulldozer across the Antarctic before it falls down a big crack? And what happens when you drive a small 4X4 up a volcano, during an earthquake, with a high chance of eruption? The answers to all of the above - and more - can be found in Top Gear Top Drives, a new book featuring Top Gear's best adventures, neatly arranged in precise geographic order: top, middle and bottom. These are not Sunday drives to country pubs. You will not find any mentions of freshly cut grass and picnics under oak trees. In fact, you are more likely to encounter roadside land mines and a pack of Chilean llamas with a relaxed approach to personal hygiene. Of course you will also find super cars on winding mountain passes, but this book goes much further, bringing you the most unusual combinations of car and tarmac - or lack of it - from across our planet. All of which are accompanied by a surprisingly useful collection of travel tips, featuring such useful advice as when to go, what the weather's like and where to find a reasonably priced beer. Like any classic travel guide, you really shouldn't leave home without it. Unless you write down the really important bits, in which case you'll probably be OK.

    Felicity Cloake's Perfect Host: the complete guide to dinner parties - for people who think they don't do dinner parties. Forget fish knives and boy-girl-boy-girl: modern entertaining sweeps away all the rules. These days, we're far more relaxed about inviting people round on the spur of the moment for sofa suppers and big, loud Sunday lunches, but there are still a few secrets to mastering the art of feeding people and having fun. In Perfect Host, Felicity Cloake ensures that you have every base covered. Whether it's having a few friends round for an impromptu after-work supper (lamb, harissa and courgette kebabs with jewelled couscous), knocking up a feast to accompany a DVD boxset (pulled pork and black bean chilli and tex mex slaw) packing a basket for that perfect picnic (scandinavian picnic loaf), planning the menu for a seductive dinner (pollack en papillotte with basil and tomatoes, and my last Rolo) or deciding what will wow at a raucous birthday party (chocolate and rose layer cake), Perfect Host is packed with delicious recipes (and helpful hints) for all occasions. "A discursive, chatty, knowledgeable and didactic kaleidoscope of a book, the sort of thing Mrs Beeton would no doubt be writing if she were alive today. As we all know, entertaining has the potential for stress and disaster. Felicity Cloake has provided us with the means to reduce the risks". (Daily Mail). Felicity Cloake is a journalist and food writer from London. She writes for the Daily Mail, the Metro and Fire & Knives magazine and has a weekly column in the Guardian.
