A Food Lover's Pilgrimage Along the Camino to Santiago De Compostela

A Food Lover's Pilgrimage Along the Camino to Santiago De Compostela

Dee Nolan

$49.99

A thousand-year-old pilgrimage route and food traditions stretching back de toda la vida - since forever. These are what Dee Nolan set out to experience on her pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela - through the rich farming lands of southern France and northern Spain. The monks of the Middle Ages who came here planted grapevines from their homelands far away. Now food lovers come seeking the magnificent wines made using grapes grown in those same ancient vineyards, along with sublime cooking and fresh, luscious produce. Dee's personal journey along the Way of St James - el camino de Santiago - took her back to the very heart of things: why we should care about what we eat and how it is produced, why we need escape, and why she found herself, after a long career in publishing, back on her grandfather's farm, connecting with the soil. This joyful book tells the story of Dee's camino, of the pilgrimage itself and of the traditions that sustain us all. Following the route of those first pilgrims, Dee met wise cooks and farmers who are finding that the future lies in the past. And she realised why, in our secular age, we are so captivated by this medieval Christian pilgrimage.

One Dish Two Ways: Feeding the Whole Family without the Fuss

One Dish Two Ways: Feeding the Whole Family without the Fuss

Jane Kennedy

$39.95

The perfect collection of recipes that can be served simply for kids, then jazzed up for the adults with just a few additional ingredients - the first cookbook guaranteed to please the whole family. Feeding a family. Every night. Is hard. Jane Kennedy knows because she cooks for seven people, seven days a week. It's not the cooking that's hard, it's thinking of a new dinner idea EVERY SINGLE NIGHT. Grown-ups are easy. They love spices and chilli and garlic and onions and herbs and zest and can dress up a boring piece of chicken, fish or steak in a flash. Kids...well. Most kids don't like spices and chilli and herbs and zest. Green bits. Orange bits. And especially not hot bits. So Jane set herself a challenge to find a way to keep everyone happy. A way that wouldn't involve her having to eat 'plain' food just to keep the kids happy and didn't require the kids to miraculously start loving spicy food. A way where one base meal could be jazzed up, or down, to suit all taste buds. One dish; two ways.

She gladly provided the recipes and now offers a paleo menu as a regular part of her catering business. In this book, Conrad explains the basics of the paleo diet and then provides ninety delicious recipes for every meal of the day, plus some snacks and desserts. She also includes the menu for her twenty-eight-day paleo challenge for those just starting the paleo lifestyle. Recipes include: * Pumpkin spice muffins* Basil pesto stir-fry* Garlic lime chicken* Pork tenderloin with apples and onions* Bison chili* Baked fish with asparagus and roasted beets* Stuffed portobellos* Lime coconut candy* Blueberry citrus pound cake* And many more!
