  • Bar Cart Style

    Ryland Peters & Small

    Product Code: CAXKP
    Hardback
    Serve drinks at home in style and bring the party to your guests from one of 12 beautifully themed and stylishly stocked bar carts. What's a party without a well-stocked (not to mention super-stylish) bar? Drinks trolleys are making a comeback, with an upsurge in those of us taking pride in entertaining at home. Originally the epitome of domestic style and taste in the 50s and 60s, retro TV series like Mad Men have left people aching for the glamour of a bygone era, and something unusual for the home. And mobile furniture on the whole is proving popular too: if you're not a fan of the retro style, you might also be taken by the adaptability of some styles of cart as a vital bit of extra storage in a small living space.Gaze upon luxurious marble and smoked glass carts that hark back to the Art Deco era and the golden age of cocktails; edgy tubular metal trolleys that scream 80s utility style; chic Scandinavian stained wood for pared-back parties; mid-century walnut-veneer and brass straight out of Don Draper's office and even folding 1960s aluminium tea-lady trolleys can make quite the style statement. With shelves to store bottles and glassware and a top the ideal height for mixing drinks, each style of cart or trolley lends itself to a carefully curated display of stock. Choose your craft spirits, glassware, shakers, stirrers and other cocktail kit from the wide range now on offer and create not just a practical serving station but a super-stylish addition to any interior.

  • 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!

  • The Flexitarian Cookbook

    Ryland Peters & Small

    Product Code: BYZPJ
    Hardback
    Less of a rigid regime, and more of an organic attempt to eat a mainly vegetarian diet, The Flexitarian Cookbook features delicious plant-centric recipes, with options for incorporating meat or fish as needed. Many of us are looking to eat less meat and/or fish, as the host of environmental, ethical and health-related reasons for doing so stacks up. The concept of not centring every meal around an animal-based protein is well on its way to settling into mainstream society. But out there, there is a whole middle-ground of home-cooks, placed somewhere between carnivore and vegan, who are doing their best to reduce meat consumption, but enjoying it on occasion when the urge strikes; the flexitarians. The Flexitarian Cookbook is a collection of delicious, modern vegetarian recipes, with simple options for switching in meat or fish, as the mood takes you. No longer will flexitarians have to juggle between multiple cookbooks or haphazardly hash together a meaty ending to a recipe depending on their cravings. Recipes include a warm curried lentil salad with crispy paneer and spiced dressing, but the paneer can be swapped for crispy prawns if preferred. A winter vegetable stew with herbed dumplings is substantial enough on its own, but this cookbook gives the option to add slow-cooked beef cheeks, if you like. A best-ever recipe for vegetable and lentil moussaka offers the option to swap the lentils for regular mince meat, while the Moroccan spiced vegetable tagine gives an option for cooking with chicken, if the mood so takes you.
