River Cottage Much More Veg

River Cottage Much More Veg

Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall

$45.00
'What 's the central aim' To make vegetables delicious, to make them irresistible, to come up with a whole bunch of recipes that are easy, family-friendly, and just make it that much easier to put a load of veg into your diet every single day.' Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall

Hugh's River Cottage Veg Every Day! became the UK 's best-selling vegetable cookbook, persuading us through sheer temptation to make vegetables the mainstay of our daily cooking. In this much-anticipated follow-up, Hugh delivers more irresistible recipes, and this time, takes things one step further. Fuelled by his passionate belief that plant foods should be the dominant force in our kitchens, Hugh has put cheese, butter, cream, eggs, and refined flour and sugar firmly to one side. Instead, he uses veg, fruit, wholegrains, nuts, seeds, spices and cold-pressed oils to explore the length and breadth of what can be achieved with natural, unprocessed plant foods. River Cottage Much More Veg! makes it clear that unadulterated ingredients are the very best building blocks for delicious and healthy meals.

In typical Hugh style, the recipes are easy, utterly foolproof and delicious. All but a handful are gluten-free, and at least half the dishes require 20 minutes (or less) hands-on work time. With recipes such as Roast squash and chickpeas with spicy apricot sauce, Blackened cauliflower with pecans and tahini, Spiced beetroot, radicchio and orange traybake, Celeriac and seaweed miso broth, Seared summer cabbage with rosemary, chilli and capers, and Baked celery agrodolce, River Cottage Much More Veg! demonstrates how easy it is to make versatile, plentiful and delicious vegetables the bedrock of your diet.

Lisboeta: Recipes from Portugal's City of Light

Lisboeta: Recipes from Portugal's City of Light

Nuno Mendes

$49.99
An evocative Lisbon cookbook from world-renowned Portuguese chef Nuno Mendes.

Lisbon is known as Portugal's 'City of Light', its beautiful, tiled buildings and cobbled streets illuminated by the reflections of the nearby waters. But it is also one of the great undiscovered culinary centres of Europe. Internationally renowned chef Nuno Mendes is a 'Lisboeta' (native of Lisbon) and in this groundbreaking cookbook, he invites you to experience his favourite places, and the incredible food you will discover there.

Sharing recipes inspired by the dishes that he loves, Nuno takes you through a typical day in Lisbon. Here you will discover the secrets to the most delicious Pasteis de nata, the custard tarts for which Lisbon is so famous, and Bolas de Berlim, fluffy doughnuts stuffed with custard that are sold on the beach. For lunch you might sample some typical seafood, like squid sizzling in a pan with garlic and coriander, or grilled sardines with a roasted green pepper salad. And as night draws in, Nuno offers his recipes for rich and warming dishes like Chanfana lamb stew and Carne de porco a Portuguesa, marinated pork baked with potatoes, fermented pepper paste, black olives and parsley – which may even be followed with a cheeky prego sandwich after dinner.

These are the heart-warming, vibrant dishes of a city with a modern, bustling food scene that is nevertheless steeped in centuries-old traditions. Nuno's portraits of Lisbon's idiosyncrasies are threaded through the pages: the hole-in-the-wall bakeries, a hidden coffee grinder known only to locals, and colourful city-wide street carnivals. With photography that deftly captures both hidden corners and luminescent vistas, this book brings to life Portugal's magnificent capital city and its fabulous cuisine.

Throughout history, it has also contributed to the spread of diseases such as typhoid and cholera.

Grand Melbourne Gardens

David Wilkinson

$70.00
Gardens have always occupied a special place in Melbourne's communal heart. We are known for our vast, meandering Botanic Gardens and our generous green city spaces. We are also known for our tree-lined streets, which give tantalising glimpses of beautiful houses behind high fences. This book takes us behind these fences and into the very heart of these oh-so-private gardens. Every garden in this book has its own atmosphere and soul - largely reflecting the passions of the person who has created or maintains it. There are vegetable gardens, clivia walks, ancient English oak trees, rose gardens, rambling exotic courtyards, city rooftop wonderlands and bold stepped garden beds. Many of these gardeners and home owners see themselves merely as the custodians of these treasured spaces, as they generously share their gardening experiences with the reader. This is a celebration of gardens new and old, small-scale and enormous - all grand in their horticultural ambitions and inspiration.
