The Complete Aga Cookbook

Mary Berry, Lucy Young
Authors:
Mary Berry, Lucy Young

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.

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.

Marmalade

Authors:
Sarah Randell

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.

Blog: Christmas TV Round-up

As we all know, Christmas is a time for reflection, rest, and seeing your loved ones. More importantly, it’s the only time of the year when it is acceptable to fill a bath with twiglets and watch The Muppets’ Christmas Carol (at least it is in my house). So here’s a quick rundown of this year’s festive TV highlights. Monday 17th THE FABULOUS BAKER BROTHERS DO CHRISTMAS (9:00pm, More4) Everybody’s favourite baking duo have cooked up 12 mouthwatering dishes for the 12 days of Christmas. Forget the sprouts, how about whisky-smoked salmon? Bosh. Tuesday 18th BRADLEY WIGGINS: A VERY BRITISH CHAMPION (8:00pm, More4) Aah Wiggo, is there anything he can’t do? More4 are repeating their documentary about the mod, god and newly crowned Sports Personality of the Year. Friday 21st UNIVERISTY CHALLENGE CHRISTMAS SPECIAL (7:30pm, BBC2) ‘Why are we watching this? I never know any of the answers and I just—Hydrochloric acid?! Oh, it was John Milton. Still I was close. Anyway, why are we watching this?’ Get those answers in quick to avoid a Paxo stuffing… Saturday 22nd STRICTLY COME DANCING (6:30pm, BBC1) Our own Bruno Tonioli and his fellow judges will be presiding over this year’s final. Expect laughs, tears and bauble puns aplenty. Christmas Day Betty’s done her speech, you’ve scrubbed all the goose fat off the oven door, and you’re just about hoping that John Lewis snowman gets run over on the motorway. What better way to calm down than a repeat of a documentary about Eddie Stobart lorries on Channel 5? Cracking stuff! Alternatively… DOWNTON ABBEY (8:45pm, ITV1) David Mitchell and Benedict Cumberbatch aren’t the biggest of fans, but the rest of country will be tuning in to see half the Downton lot off on their summer hols whilst the others prepare for the Thirsk Country Fair. Here’s hoping for extending scenes of Maggie Smith guessing the weight of a cake with acerbic asides. Boxing Day Sky Atlantic treat us to a show about Richard E. Grant staying in expensive hotels whilst Channel 4 go with hairy-footed, sword-fest, The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers. At just over seventeen hours long, expect scenes of an Elven nature. And finally, everyone’s favourite hapless heroine Miranda Hart kicks off series three of her eponymous outing with a festive special.
