The Complete Aga Cookbook

By Mary Berry and Lucy Young

  • Hardback
  • £25.00

The essential cookbook for every AGA owner.

Whether you are an AGA aficionado or have never cooked on an AGA before, Mary Berry and Lucy Young's new AGA cookbook is just what you need by your side. It is 30 years since AGA first got in touch with Mary Berry about producing the AGA handbook and 15 since she followed it up with Mary Berry's New Aga Cookbook - now she has combined, improved, updated and revamped those books with Lucy's help to produce The Complete Aga Cookbook, which deserves its place on all 21st-century kitchen shelves. There have been many new trends in cooking in the intervening years, and a plethora of new ingredients, and Mary explores them in new recipes, adapting many ideas to the Aga way of cooking.

As Mary herself says, an Aga rapidly becomes the centre attraction of the kitchen, acting as a warm focus for family, friends and animals. And cooking on an Aga is a joy: its spacious ovens produce perfectly cooked dishes, time after time. But we haven't forgotten those who cook on conventional cookers and instructions are supplied on each recipe.

Complete with all the AGA user information, Mary and Lucy help you get the most out of your AGA as they guide the reader through time- and energy-saving tips - from melting chocolate on the back shelf, to frying drop scones on the Boiling Plate and slow roasting overnight in your Simmering Oven. A few recipes will be familiar (adapted old favourites, which she just couldn't bear to leave out) but, whether new or old, all have been cooked to perfection in the Aga, showing how versatile it really is.

Biographical Notes

Mary Berry, the much-loved judge on The Great British Bake Off, has had an Aga for over 40 years and, together with Lucy Young, ran Aga Workshops at home attended by some 14,000 Aga owners. Mary is the author of more than 70 cookbooks and she is loved for her practical and unfussy approach to cooking. When Mary is at home, she loves to be with her family and tending her garden - her other great passion.

Lucy Young is Cordon Bleu trained and for the last 25 years has worked with Mary, testing recipes and teaching at her Aga Workshops. Mary describes Lucy as 'a truly exceptional cook' who will appeal to a whole new generation. Lucy's expertise is in creating and demonstrating no-hassle recipes to cook for family and friends. She is the author of seven books and this is the third that she has co-authored with Mary. Lucy lives at home with her husband, Ariel the cat and Frank and Matilda, their two pet ducks.

Mary has a 5 oven Aga and Lucy has an Aga Total Control - they are both duck egg blue! Mary and Lucy still work together every day and are great friends.

'Sesame & Spice is an absolute treat; full of warmth and generosity, and so many recipes I want to cook, that I've been headily immoderate with my post-it notes!' Nigella Lawson'If you're a fan of Ottolenghi and Sabrina Ghayour, you'll love this' BBC Good Food magazineThe recipes in Cherish are the food that Anne Shooter cooks for her family - the cookbook that her daughters wanted her to write.

My recipes come from my Jewish roots, but I have written them for the modern table, drawing from the street foods of Tel Aviv to all the Jewish communities around the world to the meals my family have now made their own. I cook these recipes whenever we have friends or family over - a weekday one-tray supper of chicken, aubergine and bulghar wheat, a Sunday lunch of lamb shanks with apricots or roasted peppers with chickpeas, quinoa & feta for a vibrant dinner I can turn around a veritable feast of a dinner in a couple of hours because these recipes are tried and tested by generations of cooks before me, recipes I will be passing on to my daughters for their own families one day, I hope, and that you will to yours. This is indeed a book inspired by my Jewish roots, but above all, it is a book of food to make for people you love.'

Two Kitchens

Rachel Roddy
Authors:
Rachel Roddy

From the award-winning weekly Guardian Cook columnist and winner of the André Simon and Guild of Food Writers' Awards comes an Italian food book of sumptuous recipes, flavours and stories from Sicily and Rome.For the last twelve years, food-writer, cook and photographer Rachel Roddy has immersed herself in the culture of Roman cooking, but it was the flavours of the south that she and her Sicilian partner, Vincenzo, often craved. Eventually the chance arose to spend more time at his old family house in south-east Sicily, where Rachel embraced the country's traditional recipes and the stories behind them. In Two Kitchens Rachel celebrates the food and flavours of Rome and Sicily and shares over 120 of these simple, everyday dishes from her two distant but connected kitchens. From tomato and salted ricotta salad, caponata and baked Sicilian pasta to lemon crumble, honeyed peaches and almond and chocolate cake, they are the authentic Italian recipes that you will want to cook again and again until you've made them your own.'This is a recipe book that reflects the way I cook and eat: uncomplicated, direct and adaptable Italian family food that reflects the season. The two kitchens of the title are my kitchens in Rome and Sicily. In a sense, though, we could have called the book "many kitchens" as I invite you to make these recipes your own.'
