Anne Shooter

'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 LawsonThe recipes in Cherish are the food that Anne Shooter cooks for her family - the cookbook that her daughters wanted her to write. Full of love and generosity, the recipes are a delicious array of flavours from the Middle East, Eastern Europe and Jerusalem. They come from Anne's Jewish background and the times her family and friends come together to eat, celebrate and feast. With the same warm, home-style cooking of Sabrina Ghayour's Persiana, Olia Hercules' Mamushka and Emma Spitzer's Fress, Anne will open up a world of bold flavours but simple ingredients. Recipes that you will want to cook over and over again.'Every Friday, like my mum and my grandma, and her mother before her, I cook a delicious, comforting dinner for my family and friends. 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.'

As ever, Doherty dazzles with his knowledge and intimate feel for ancient Egypt' - Time Out His great battles against the sea raiders in the Nile Delta have left Pharaoh Tuthmosis II frail, but he finds solace in victory and in the welcome he is sure to receive on his return to Thebes. Across the river from Thebes, however, there are those who do not relish his homecoming, and a group of assassins has taken a witch to pollute the Pharaoh's unfinished tomb. Reunited with his wife, Hatusu, and his people, Tuthmosis stands before the statue of Amun-Ra with the roar of the crowd and the fanfare of trumpets ringing in his ears. But within an hour he is dead and the people of Thebes cannot forget the omen of wounded doves flying overhead. Rumours run rife, speculation sweeps the royal city and Hatusu vows to uncover the truth. With the aid of Amerotke, a respected judge of Thebes, she embarks on a path destined to reveal the great secrets of Egypt.What readers are saying about The Mask of Ra:'This is the best book I have ever read''A classic whodunit, it nevertheless manages to spring a few surprises on the way, and I certainly didn't manage to guess who the culprit was''Mr. Doherty takes time to establish the site and atmospheric setting of his story...I barged through the book in one night'

Blog: A Taste of Christmas from our authors

Peace on earth and good will to men is all very well, but everyone knows what Christmas is really about: eating and drinking to excess. In preparation for the big day, we in the Headline office have been taking the task of expanding our stomachs very seriously and have spent the last few weeks limbering up with a steady intake of quality streets and mince pies, and maybe even a spot of sherry too.

11 Tips for Surviving a Festive Holiday

To celebrate the publication of MAGGIE DOES MERIBEL and because everyone always forgets to prep for the less shiny, happy parts to Christmas, Nicola Doherty has written the perfect guide to help us survive the festive period.

Blog: Chestnuts Roasting Round the Christmas Fire...

Chestnuts roasting round the Christmas fire… ‘Christmas just isn’t Christmas without any presents’ says Louisa May Alcott’s Jo March, with a heartfelt but petulant tone, in one of my all-time favourite books, LITTLE WOMEN. In fact, Christmas proves to be a bit of a turning point for Jo, as she wakes to the grey dawn morning and the prospect of doing good works for the festive season. She’s sent out by her long suffering mother to tend to a poor woman with a newborn baby, and sees that others really do have a much harder time of it than she does. Lesson learnt. Anyway, this puts me in mind of the forthcoming holidays, and the children’s books that have meant most to me over the years. Another classic is ANNE OF GREEN GABLES by the Prince Edward Island raised L M Montgomery. Here’s a book I return to with huge pleasure, delighting in Anne with an ‘e’, her freckles and carrot-coloured hair and her indomitable spirit. There’s a wonderful scene in which the shy, bumbling Matthew Cuthbert realises his charge is always dressed in plain clothes, and sets out to buy her something really special for Christmas; a dress with puffed sleeves. But in the local store, he is overwhelmed by shyness and asks for first a garden rake, and then hayseed, before finally stammering out what he really wants. Anne’s tears at the sight of the soft, brown gloria dress, shining like silk that Matthew has finally managed to purchase make his agonies all the more poignant. In our house, boys abound, and while as a teenager, I used to read my little sister anything featuring the inimitable MIFFY by Dutch writer and illustrator Dick Bruna, my own brood were more action packed or magical in bent. C S Lewis wins us all round – in Narnia it’s ‘always winter, never Christmas’, and long car journeys were spent on the motorways listening to the BBC tapes of PRINCE CASPIAN or THE VOYAGE OF THE DAWN TREADER. If not that, and we weren’t all sobbing over Michael Morpurgo’s THE BUTTERFLY LION, then Stephen Fry’s rendition of J K Rowling’s HARRY POTTER series proved a hit as we lived with Harry creeping through the corridors of Hogwarts in the Christmas holidays, his invisibility cloak shielding him from discovery. Those recordings are so good that I came home the other to find my sons listening to them in the kitchen. Who said being over twenty was too old for a good children’s book? Not me, that’s for sure. So, whether you’re wrapping up the age old toddler’s favourite GOODNIGHT MOON by Margaret Wise Brown, the amazing Judith Kerr’s THE TIGER WHO CAME TO TEA for a five year old, or the heart-breaking GOODNIGHT MISTER TOM by Michelle Magorian for a narrative loving primary school child, enjoy your Christmas books, read them again – and don’t forget to follow tradition and shout out Clement C Moore’s THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS after your mince pies and sherry. As I’ve spotted a couple of furry friends scuttling behind our fridge, I really hope the following will be true in my home on Christmas Eve. ‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse…’ Festive Greetings one and all!
