Kew on a Plate with Raymond Blanc

By Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew and Raymond Blanc

  • Hardback
  • £25.00

Accompanying a very special 4-part BBC2 series with Raymond Blanc and the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, this is the story of our favourite fruit and veg.

The best dish on Raymond's menu, according to Raymond, is the 'one that's in season'.

In this unique TV series and book, Raymond Blanc and Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew have created a stunning Kitchen Garden at Kew to showcase the heritage and botany of our favourite plants as well as uncover their growing and cooking secrets.

We'll explore how these plants arrived in the UK, brought back by intrepid plant hunters, how they flourished and how they spread to become part of our everyday meals.

The Kew gardeners offer their tips and expertise in growing this produce, from carrots to potatoes, rhubarb and gooseberries, apples and peas.

And interwoven with these stories will be Raymond's Blanc's detailed tasting notes and 40 mouth-watering recipes. Raymond's unparalleled expertise is drawn from three decades of experience in his own restaurant kitchen garden. He brings with him a lifetime's passion about fruit and veg, knowing exactly which apple is the perfect variety for his Tarte Tartin and which potato makes the perfect Sunday roast.

With a wealth of stunning historical illustrations, woodcuts and images as well as beautiful recipe photography, this will be a book to treasure for life.

Miguel Barclay

Over 80 super-simple and tasty recipes that will save you both time and money. Here is delicious food for less.So much more than cheap dinner ideas - here are meals that cost under a pound but look and taste a million dollars! Recipes for the whole family without breaking the bank. Instagram chef sensation Miguel Barclay is taking the world by storm with his delicious meals that cost less than £1 per person. 'I've always loved cooking but I'm not a fan of needlessly over-complicated recipes that waste time and money. So I've created my own style of cooking: simple ingredients, straightforward recipes and mouthwatering meals, all on a budget. Now you can eat the food you love - from meatball marinara to chicken katsu curry, lamb moussaka to aubergine dal - all for under £1 per person.' Miguel's easy-to-follow, ready-in-minutes recipes are for a single serving, and can all be cooked for under £1 per person - just multiply them up for more servings. 'As you would expect from such a relaxed style of cooking, the book is laid out in a similarly laidback manner. There are no chapters or themes. Just flick through the pages and cook whichever dish you fancy. But, as a nod to my Instagram roots and to help you identify types of dish, I have labelled each recipe with hashtags, so if you want to find veggie food, just look out for the veggie hashtags. One Pound Meals are designed to use a core group of ingredients, and this is the key to eliminating waste. Just start with one recipe, and depending on what you have left over, choose your next recipe accordingly. I want you to bounce around the book on a sort of never-ending random journey as you use up those leftover ingredients. It also means you can plan a week's worth of meals in one go and shop more efficiently.' With savvy supermarket shopping swaps and time-saving tips, One Pound Meals makes cooking quicker, easier and tastier, and with less waste. One Pound Meals includes: * Lasagne * Crab mac & cheese * Chicken katsu curry * Pork chop in a mustard & leek sauce * Spaghetti carbonara * Mushroom risotto * Quiche lorraine * Aubergine dal & chapati * Scotch Egg * Ultimate £1 burger * Ham & mushroom pizza * Pancake stack

A Pot of Marmalade

Authors:
Sarah Randell

This is a black and white paperback edition of Marmalade: A Bittersweet Cookbook, published in hardback in 2014 by Saltyard Books. If you would like the original colour illustrated version of Marmalade it is available in hardback ISBN 9781444784329. From the arrival of the first boxes of bitter Seville oranges at the greengrocer's in January, to the sweet-sharp scent of citrus fruit filling the kitchen as the preserving pan bubbles away on the stove, there is something deeply satisfying about the annual ritual of making marmalade and piling the pantry shelves high with neatly labeled jars of glistening preserves.Once you've perfected the set and balanced the bittersweet flavour in your traditional orange marmalade, you might experiment with different fruits, or try adding alcohol, essences or spices - cardamom, ginger or a hint of bergamot - but after that, what to do with all those pots of citrus perfection? A jar or two to friends and family, another for the breakfast table... and then what? It's time to start using it for baking and cooking. From Christmas ham to rhubarb and marmalade trifle, and from chocolate fondants with bitter orange centres to marmalade marguerites, here is all the inspiration you need to make the most of marmalade right through the year.

My Kind of Food

John Torode
Authors:
John Torode

My Kind of Food is a very personal book from John Torode, full of the food that he loves to cook and eat, recipes that he makes away from the cameras and professional kitchens. In John's words:'My world as I know it started with my Nanna's roasting tin, a chicken and a wooden spoon. The food she cooked was always simple, but delicious. Her cauliflower cheese was awesome, her caramel slice wonderful and I am still searching for a recipe to make her apple tea cake. So life started simply for me. Since then I have cooked in professional kitchens, run my own restaurants and done a lot of telly. Some of you may have eaten in my restaurants, some may have seen me on MasterChef, but I guess that not many of you know what I really cook for myself and my friends and family. This book is about how I cook at home and the chapters reflect me and the things in life I love - how I eat and how I cook. At its heart, it is simple, but it's definitely also influenced by my years in restaurant kitchens. I don't tend to define my food by type or style. I guess you could say that these are my real favourites - a behind-the-scenes look at my own kitchen!' BRUNCH TO LUNCH The Aussie in me is all about eating through the morning. My perfect day starts slowly - if breakfast is the meal of kings, then brunch is the food of emperors. FOR THE FAMILY Although I am a professional cook, I have a number of dishes that I rely on at home. They are all tried-and-tested, some are posh, some are simple, but all are favourites. IN A RUSH I cook every day, but sometimes it needs to be quick and easy. But there's no reason why a quick meal should not be tasty. STORES AND LEFTOVERS Great food is created from necessity. Open your cupboards and look for the potential in your fridge. For many a minefield, but for me a gold mine. These are the recipes I know well from being a boy and watching in wonder what could be made with a bit of this and a bit of that. Not complicated just delicious.ALL OUTSIDE Well, I am an Aussie. Some of the best food in the world is cooked outside, where having fun is as important as cooking. AND TO FINISH I love a good dessert. A proper steaming pudding with thick custard or real ice cream. It's all about being a kid and not caring about sugar and spice. Cakes and tarts and pies and lots of them.

Emma Bridgewater
Authors:
Emma Bridgewater

Emma Bridgewater's cheerfully distinctive kitchen pottery - manufactured and traditionally hand-decorated in the Staffordshire Potteries, just as it would have been 200 years ago - has found its way onto the dresser shelves and kitchen tables of homes all over Britain and beyond. Her designs are jaunty, friendly, sometimes quietly funny. They call to mind childhood picnics, summer gardens and busy kitchens, with their motifs of Sweet Peas and Figs or bold calligraphic patterns such as Toast & Marmalade. Above all the name Emma Bridgewater suggests home and welcome. This book combines beautiful photographs of Emma's life and designs with a collection of warm stories of her family, along with the inspirations for and characters involved in the success of this particularly English brand.
