One Pound Meals

Miguel Barclay
Authors:
Miguel Barclay

So much more than cheap dinner ideas - here are recipes for meals that cost under a pound but look and taste a million dollars! So why not feed yourself for £1 or your family for less than a fiver?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.'Making 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

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.

Kaushy Patel

Since winning everyone over on Ramsay's Best Restaurant, Prashad has grown in size and reputation, and so too has the Patel family. In this, their second book, Kaushy returns the focus to the heart of Indian home cooking. Traditional recipes have been simplified using readily available ingredients.

You'll also find many recipes drawing influence from British, Chinese and Italian cuisines - a perfect combining of cultures in the kitchen. And, because Gujaratis are well known for their sweet teeth, there are plenty of snacks and treats too. Life is all about balance after all. Times have changed and what we eat should suit our lifestyle, but whether you have 20 minutes or two hours, cooking should be enjoyed, bringing both you and those you are cooking for pleasure.From bhajis to feast biryanis to beans on toast, Gujarati-style, here are more than 100 recipes to bring warmth, taste and texture into your home, all made with the Patel's characteristic love and passion for vegetarian food.

Honey & Co: The Baking Book

Itamar Srulovich, Sarit Packer
Authors:
Itamar Srulovich, Sarit Packer

Our day is marked by what comes out of the pastry section, and there's always something good on the way: sticky buns full of cherries and pistachios in the morning; a loaf of rich dough rolled with chocolate, hazelnuts and cinnamon that has been proving since dawn and comes out of the oven fresh for elevenses. Lunch is a crisp, crumbly shell of pastry filled with spiced lamb or burnt aubergine, and at teatime there are cheesecakes and fruit cakes, small cakes and massive cookies - so many cakes that it's hard to choose one. (There's no need to worry, whatever you choose will be great!) After dinner there might be poached peaches with roses or something more traditional, sweet and salty Knafe drenched in orange blossom syrup, or maybe just a small piece of fresh marzipan. There's something sweet, something in the oven for everyone, all day long - welcome to Honey & Co.Chapters include:How to be good at baking: general notes; Store cupboard; Sweet & savoury breakfasts; Elevenses; Lunch; Teatime; Traditional desserts

Demand is one of the few economic terms almost everyone knows. Demand drives supply. When demand rises, growth happens - jobs are created, the economy flourishes and society thrives. So goes the theory.It sounds simple, yet almost no one really understands demand, including the business owners, company leaders and policy makers who try to stimulate and satisfy it. Aimed at a business and general non-fiction readership, DEMAND is a book which searches for clues as to where demand really comes from, and why, and how we might control it.

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.
