  • Drinkology

    Alexis Willett

    Product Code: CBRAQ
    Paperback
    'Very engaging and entertaining . . . a clear guide to everything we need to know about drinks, from water to milk, tea, alcohol and beyond. Dr Willett dispels common myths and fads and sets the record straight . . .allowing us to make fully informed choices. A fascinating deep dive into the science behind everything we drink.' Elisabeth Cresta and Caroline Day, Founders of Fight the Fads Do you really know what you are drinking? Are you sure? We all consume many drinks every day, often without thinking. Perhaps we're just thirsty, perhaps we need something to wake us up, perhaps we need something to relax us at the end of the day. But have you ever stopped to wonder what exactly is in that chai latte you're guzzling or just what those added electrolytes in your bottled water are supposed to do? Whether it's a simple glass of water or early morning espresso, the finest champagne or energy drink the morning after, all drinks have an impact on our body in one way or another. Drinkology distils the scientific evidence to see if we can get to the bottom of questions, such as: Is a regular glass of wine good for our health or not? Should we worry about energy drinks? Is fluoride in our tap water harmful? How do non-dairy milks compare with each other? What's the secret to the perfect cup of tea? Are fermented drinks and probiotics the answer to all our worries? Is there such a thing as a 'superdrink'? Whether you want to discover the true benefits of wellness drinks, find out if sulphites in wine really cause headaches, or are just sick of the pseudoscience behind the marketing of what we consume, this book is for you. Drinkology is a scientific digest of many of the world's most popular beverages and may just change the way you drink.

  • Tasting the Past: Recipes from George III to Victoria

    Jacqui Wood

    Product Code: CAXVJ
    Paperback
    The many influences of the past on our diet today make the concept of 'British food' very hard to define. The Celts, Romans, Saxons, Vikings and Normans all brought ingredients to the table, as it were, and onwards the Crusades gave us all manner of spices. The Georgians enjoyed a new level of excess and then of course the world wars forced us into the challenge of making meals from very little. This book, one of three volumes, documents the rich history of our food, its fads and its fashions to be combined with a practical cookbook of over xxx recipes from the reigns of George III and Queen Victoria.

  • Oyster Isles

    Bobby Groves

    Product Code: BZHOP
    Hardback
    The oyster. Ostrea edulis. 'Edible bones'. The Great British oyster is deeply embedded in our geographical, historical and socio-cultural landscape. Five-thousand-year-old oyster shells have been discovered in the northern reaches of Scotland, and oyster shells are littered along the extinct riverbeds deep beneath the London of today. A highly prized delicacy of the Romans, the oyster has always been a class leveller: an everyman food of the poor during the Victorian age to a food of decadence during the twentieth century. It is a superfood; a biological water meter; an ecological superpower. The oyster card, 'the world is your oyster' - it has even crept into our language. Bobby Groves, Head of Oysters at the Chiltern Firehouse, takes us on a wonderful journey of the British oyster, a five-thousand-mile motorcycle odyssey of Britain's spectacular coastlines. He vividly brings to life this strange and marvellous creature, shining a light on its rich and vibrant history, its cultural impact and ecological importance as well as those oyster folk who work so hard to protect them. Part travelogue, part social history, Oyster Isles is a celebration of the much-loved yet much-misunderstood British oyster.

It goes with everything - from savoury to sweet - and it's just as comfortable being the star of the show as it is playing a supporting role.

All hail bacon. The Scratch & Sniff Bacon Cookbook promises to sway even the most hardened vegetarians with its 40 bacon-centric recipes (not to mention its nifty scratch & sniff feature on the book's cover) - from piggy snacks, including caramel bacon popcorn, candied bacon strips and bacon-wrapped sweet potato wedges, to heartier main dishes like bacon-covered mac & cheese burgers, smoky bacon tacos and the ultimate pasta carbonara. Did we mention dessert too? You'll also find bacon and pecan ice-cream, choc-bacon cookies and everything bacon imaginable. It's time to pig out because everything is better with bacon!
