The Summer Pudding Club Book: 100 Glorious Summertime Recipes
Turner, Keith & Jean
Headline UK 1999 
 Hardcover Unbelievably for a book about puddings it comes in under the 500g so that's a good start. Fault? It has a small splot low down on the dj, it may be a pudding drip? This came to my attention watching River Cafe cheffie trying (unsuccessfully) to win the local pud comp at the hotel get together. Following the phenomenal success of THE PUDDING CLUB BOOK, this sequel delves further into the depths of pleasure and comfort-eating by exploring the delights of traditional summer desserts like trifles and syllabubs and their many variations. Like its predecessor, this book concentrates on traditional British puddings, which have been tried and tested with relish by the many passionate members of the Pudding Club. review >>> Puddings, now that's a real word to savour. This book is also one to savour. The recipes are sophisticated in their simplicity and I couldn't find one which I didn't like although I have to admit that I didn't try very hard.  Excellent/Very Good-good

But, for all its outdoorsy information, the real focus of THE RIVER COTTAGE YEAR is indoors - at Hugh's kitchen table. With over 100 brand new recipes, this is above all a cookery book.

English Bread and Yeast Cookery
David, Elizabeth
Allen Lane UK 1977 1st
 Hardcover 591pp & heading towards a kilo. The "background" material of David's long-awaited work is in fact a very imposing foreground; nearly half the book is devoted to such matters as the botanical origins of wheat, the technology of milling both before and since the Industrial Revolution, the commercial manufacture of yeasts, and the history of ovens. What David is really out to do is to explore the role of bread in English life over the past few centuries. Hence her recipe-section, too, proves to be a magnificent historical anthology filled with lore from every source imaginable--Robert May, Hannah Glasse, Eliza Acton, forgotten Women's Institute compilations, professional baking manuals, letters from readers. reviews > Forget the current deluge of books by wannabe celebrity bakers. This is a deeply personal exploration of baking by one of the all-time great cookery writers much-imitated by the many lesser writers who have followed in her footsteps. Most important of all, the recipes have never failed me. >> It's all about the stories. >>> Elizabeth David is not just a cookery writer, she is a food writer of uncommon wit, sense, and integrity. Part recipe book, part historical document. >>>> To my mind the very best cookery books are those which are both very good to read, and are very good to cook from. My comment - abebooks recently ran an overview of 50 great cook's books; by the reviews I'd say this deserves a spot in there.  Very Good/No Jacket

Another distinction, in addition to the attractive variety of little-known but non-gimmicky more-or-less Italian dishes, is the sampling of recipes from other cuisines. Besides his basic recipe for pasta, with alternatives for making it by hand or by machine, Beard gives directions for making buckwheat noodles with beer (no eggs), Bulgarian shredded noodles, spatzle, spatzen, and more.  Excellent/Excellent

Hugh Fearlessly Eats It All: Dispatches from the Gastronomic Frontline
Fearnley-Whittingstall, Hugh
Bloomsbury UK 2006 
 Hardcover ex-Essex County lib, usual indicators & a lib overwrapper, Hugh would always bypass a McBurger in favour of a squirrel sandwich, or make a detour for fresh road kill - to some he is bonkers+ but to others a shining and shaggy beacon of good sense in a food world gone mad. Armed with a broad mind, a quick wit and a ready appetite, Hugh covers almost every area of global food culture. Whether singing the praises of offal; debunking Colonel Sanders and Dr. Atkins; playing 'poisson roulette' with the deadly fugu fish in Tokyo; pondering the moral inconsistency of those who condemn fox hunting for its cruelty while happily tucking into factory-farmed chicken; fishing for marlin in Kenya, trout in Chile and barracuda in the Bahamas; analysing the tea-dunking qualities of some classic British biscuits; contemplating why if piglets are destined for the pot, why aren't puppies; or reminding us that a reindeer isn't just for Christmas, but tasty all year round, Hugh has an unerring ability to entertain and provoke. 288 thought provoking pp, 750g for posting.  Very Good/Very Good/Good

Simply Tuscan
Luongo, Pino
Pavilion Books Limited UK 2001 
 Hardcover 1.2 kg to post, 292 pp Weaving poetry, culinary commentary and childhood reminiscences about his native Tuscany into this winsome collection of recipes, restaurateur Luongo (Fish Talking; A Tuscan in the Kitchen) introduces traditional Tuscan cuisine with thematic flourish. Chapters are organized by season, setting the stage for menus that include seasonal holidays and special occasions. For example, spring menus highlight ""Easter Lunch and Easter Dinner"" as well as the ""First Dinner with the In-Laws,"" while autumn features ""Fall's First Truffle Dinner"" and ""A Tuscan Thanksgiving Dinner."" Throughout, Luongo proffers anecdotes and a Tuscan worldview: on summer entertaining, ""Think of it as having a date with nature""; on men cooking: ""If a man can't cook in Tuscany, he has something to be ashamed of."" Devoid of elaborate explanations, recipes are refreshingly straightforward, taking a matter-of-fact approach to cooking. The traditional preparations emphasize handmade pastas and a prolific use of indigenous ingredients, including chestnuts, truffles, herbs, butter and various Italian cheeses. Dishes range from simple--Lamb Stew with Artichokes, Fusilli Salad with Swordfish and Grapefruit, Watermelon Granita--to such involved and elaborate recipes as Ravioli Filled with Pappa al Pomodoro (a tomato sauce) and Black Cabbage, and Sweet and Sour Boar with Chestnut Gnocchi. Luongo will charm readers into incorporating a bit of Tuscany into their workaday life.  Very Good/Very Good

La France Gastronomique
Willan, Anne
Pavilion Books Limited UK 1991 
 Hardcover A collection of recipes from ten rural regions of France. This book offers an insight into French country cooking and eating, and shows how the French not only produce good food but also love to discuss it. The recipes featured range from the world famous to the little known. What is a cookbook? More than simply a collection of recipes, a cookbook can be a window to the larger world beyond the confines of the kitchen, as La Varenne Cooking School founder and award-winning cookbook author Anne Willan illustrates in this excellent book. review >>> It's one of those books that can be read back to front, or by random page-flipping, without much loss of charm. Old-fashioned farms, sleepy rivers, small shops, hill villages, wood-fired bakery ovens and lovingly tended gardens are the sort of things that stick in the mind, both from Willan's descriptions and Michael Boys' idyllic photographs. Famous restaurants, when they crop up, are mentioned with pleasure rather than awe, in no way eclipsing more modest experiences. . . .& (re) the choice of recipes. There are only about 100, modestly tucked away in 10 sections at the end of the individual chapters, but they convey a lot. The selection emphasizes obvious dishes and use of obvious regional ingredients rather than gee-whiz "discoveries" and "creations." 192 clean white pp in great shape for some culinary browsing at a bargain price, dj fault is a sunned spine. approx 1.5kg carded/bubbled for post.

Real Family Food
Antony Worrall Thompson
Mitchell Beazley Limited UK 2005 
 Hardcover 175 clean white well bound pp, review > Antony Worrall Thompson (TV cookshow host) communicates the "healthy/bonded/respected/loving family message throughout his books- he has an excellent book on the GI diet, and here he looks at family meals as the core of a happy, healthy family. In 'Real Family Food' he makes the valid point that food is not just something to be quickly shovelled down throats, but a focus for family bonding and an opportunity to communicate with one another, play with one another, and respect one another. He begins by setting out his house rules - meal times are respected as an opportunity to be together and talk about the day. This is not so much a manifesto as a discussion topic in its own right. If you're trying to wean your children off fast foods and fizzy drinks, this is something you can use as a starting point to forge an understanding of the quality and value of food... My comment - I've browsed a LOT of cookbooks & this one is really a very clear, engaging & attractive work on a topic dear to many hearts, you won't be disappointed, you'll be impressed!  Excellent/Excellent

French Country Cooking
David, Elizabeth
Dorling Kindersley UK 1987 
 Hardcover This copy almost fine bar a closed tear to dj spine at the base, otherwise all pp clean white & tightly bound. First published sixty years ago while food rationing was still in force, Elizabeth David used this book to introduce to the nation's bland palate, ingredients and recipes previously undiscovered in postwar Britain. Many people of that era had never experienced anything other than British cooking meat, two veg and a nice steamed pudding. ......------...... She starts by setting the record straight: 'Those who care to look for it will find the justification of France's culinary reputation in the provinces, at the riverside inns, in unknown cafés...in sea port bistros...and nowadays in cafés routiers, the lorry-drivers' restaurants. In such places the most interesting food of France is to be found.' From having lived with a French family while studying over there, she was able to bring firsthand knowledge to this short yet concise guide to provincial French cooking.She starts with a chapter on the Batterie de Cuisine. But it's the collection of regional recipes that follow that made this book such a treat for 1950s Britain; divided into sections on soups, fish, eggs, luncheon, supper and family dishes, meat, poultry, game, vegetables, salads, sauces and sweets, she gives an entertaining and informative introduction to each. French Country Cooking reveals the immense diversity of the cuisine through recipes that range from a primitive peasant soup of the Basque country to the refined Lyonnaise dish of Poulet à la Crème. To those used to the traditional format of recipe writing the book will come as something of a surprise since Elizabeth David weaves the ingredients into the methods complete with details of the region, tradition and people. Elizabeth David's acclaimed writings are often cited as an inspiration by many of today's leading chefs, as well as home cooks, and are essential to any serious cookery book collection. Book in beaut condition with very attractive period art to illustrate as well as line art by John Minton, a book to savour with a nice chablis or maybe a Pernod & ice.  Excellent/Very Good

River Cafe Cookbook Two
Rose Gray Ruth Rogers
Ebury Press UK 1997 
 Hardcover The first River Cafe Cook Book was a publishing phenomenon, winning both the Glenfiddich Food Book of the Year and the BCA Illustrated Book of the Year Awards. As well as the innovative, striking design of the book, the appeal also lies in the exquisite simplicity of its food. A sophisticated re-interpretation of the cucina rustica or farmhouse cooking of northern Italy, the food of the River Cafe relies on good quality, fresh, seasonal produce. Ruth and Rose's direct, uncomplecated approach means that many of the dishes are strikingly simple-fish, meat and vegetables are chargrilled, pan-fried and baked-but all of them are vibrant with flavour. This new book retains the essential style of The River Cafe while reflecting the new directions Ruth and Rose's cooking has taken since their first book. Over 200 completely new recipies illustrated and presented - a must both for those who enjoy the delights of cooking. 352 clean well bound pp profusely illustrated.

Marcella’s Kitchen
Marcella Hazan
Macmillan  1995 
 Papeback Marcella's Kitchen by Marcella Hazan has classic Italian food by the cook who believes that 'the best dishes are always best made at home'. Ms Hazan explains the origin and development of her recipes and includes 250 new ones. Bio info >> Hazan was born in 1924 in Cesenatico in Emilia-Romagna. Her parents & her grandmothers cooked, and although she doesn't seem to have done much herself she obviously absorbed an enormous amount. In the kitchen of her New York apartment there was no one to coach her so she began by using cookbooks from Italy, but then began to reuse that acquired information/methodology that she had from home and created her own dishes based on them. Hazan began giving cooking lessons in her flat, and opened her own cooking school, The School of Classic Italian Cooking, in 1969. In the early 1970s, she began to contribute to the NY Times. Hazan's cookbooks concentrate on strictly traditional Italian cookery without American or British influence. Her recipes tend to use only ingredients that would be foundd in Italian kitchens. Hazan's recipes emphasise careful attention to detail. She recommends preparing food by hand rather than processor and prefers the stovetop to the oven because it's more engaging. Her recipes are not necessarily complicated. 327 clean well bound pp.  Very Good/None issued
