At a time when we are all looking to shop more locally, cook thriftily and still enjoy great food, it is a book for how we live today.

    Today, most British Rail diesel locomotive types are represented in preservation, though some classes are much more prolific than others (in particular the more recently withdrawn). Sadly, several early types were lost completely as they were withdrawn around the same time as steam traction finished on British Railways, a time when most enthusiasts had no interest in saving diesels. As a result, no North British locos survive, and of several other types there is just one survivor, for example Classes 15 and 28, both of which are under restoration. A number of types have also now spent longer in preservation than mainline service, such as the hydraulic classes and the famous Class 55 Deltics. There is a large number of heritage railways running diesel locomotives today, some hosting special events bringing together several classes and operating intensive services, others using them to supplement steam traction, and many have locos under restoration for future use. Using his fantastic collection of photographs, Ross Taylor displays the surviving examples of a wide range of classes, including (TOPS classifications) 14, 20, 24, 25, 26, 27, 31, 33, 35, 37, 40, 42, 44-47, 50, 52, 55, 56, and 58. The sole surviving prototype HST power car is included as it was initially regarded as a Class 41 locomotive before the whole train became known as Class 252. The Class 73 electro-diesel is also shown, but none of the Class 74 version survives. These locomotives are now based at many different heritage railways, and are showcased in this informative and fully illustrated book.

    Preserving the Japanese Way offers an easy to understand road map for preserving fruits, vegetables, and fish through a non-scientific, farm- or fisherman-centric approach. Backdrop to the 80 recipes outlined in this book, are the producers and the artisanal products used to make these salted and fermented foods. The arresting photos of the barrel maker, fish sauce producer, artisanal vinegar company, 200 hundred-year-old sake producer, and traditional morning pickle markets with wrinkled grandmas still selling their wares document an authentic view of the inner circle of Japanese life. Recipe methods range from the ultra-traditional: Umeboshi (Salt-Dried Sour Plums, Takuan (Rice Bran Fermented Dried Daikon), and Hakusai (Salt-Fermented Cabbage; to the modern: Shoyu Koji Zucchini Coins, Turnips Pickled in Plum Vinegar, and Melon in Sake Lees. Preserving with Salt & Koji also introduces and demystifies one of the most fascinating ingredients to hit the food scene in a decade: koji. Koji is neither new, nor unusual in the landscape of Japan fermentation but it has quickly become a cult favourite for quick pickling or marinades. Preserving the Japanese Way is a book about community, seasonality as the root of preserved food, and ultimately about why community and seasonality are relevant in our lives today.
