The Kitchen Gardener by Alan Titchmarsh

Synopsis: Allotments with ten-year waiting lists; fruit and veg seeds outselling those of flowers - Britain is growing a passion for home produce and the time is right for the nation's favourite gardener to provide the definitive book on the subject. Alan's comprehensive guide will tell you everything you could possibly want or need to know about fruit and veg and how to grow it, including herbs, baby veg, salads, every-day fruits plus gourmet or unusual varieties, and how to fit them into today's stylish small gardens. As well as providing the key facts needed to yield good results and what to do when things go wrong, the text is sprinkled with Alan's personal observations, anecdotes, culinary tips and quirky historical uses.The book takes a very practical approach, starting from scratch for the benefit of anyone who's never grown their own before, but is also ideal for those with some experience who might be growing edibles in a new way - perhaps in a small space that needs to look attractive, or on a new allotment.

Rick Stein's Mediterranean Escapes (Hardcover)

I bought this book because I saw the series on TV and greatly enjoyed seeing the beautiful landscapes and learning about local ingredients and dishes. For anyone who loves Mediterranean food with its varied influences and would like to be able to recreate typical dishes at home, this book is a very accessible resource.

The photography is bright and clear and linked to the recipes which are divided into sections according to the type of dish and main ingredients used so there are sections on cheeses, antipasti, pasta and rice, rabbit and game, fish, fruits, herbs and salads. The text is informative and gives details about the provenance of the dishes and the cultural influences on Mediterranean food...

Indian Food Made Easy (Paperback)

I bought this book after being inspired from the fantastic cookery programme and thankfully I have not yet been disappointed.It is a great book that has so many brilliant and easy recipes. They do take some time in preparing the ingredients such as the spices but once you have this mastered the recipes are quick and simple. I cooked several of the recipes for a dinner party of 12 including children and everyone both commented on how lovely the food was AND took some of the recipes home with them. One of the people who took the recipe NEVER cooks home made food so I figured it must have been good! I would thoroughly recommend this book as it is truelly inspiring. I have never cooked Indian food but I can honestly say that I enjoyed the experience immensly. Fantastic! Will be buying her other publication asap.

The World Atlas of Wine (Hardcover)

Written by the world's most authoritative wine duo, the unparalleled clarity and detail of the maps remain core to the Atlas. Each of the 200 maps has been thoroughly researched and updated. Reflecting the happenings over the last six years in the world of wine, the pages devoted to the New World show a lot of changes. New additions include: California (Rutherford, Oakville, Stag's Leap),Australia (Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Limestone Coast), New Zealand (Central Otago, Martinborough), South Africa (Constantia). The South American section receives a complete revamp. In Europe the dynamism of the new Old World is in evidence, with Sicily, the Douro, Greece and Germany all receiving extra pages...

New Covent Garden Book of Soup for All Seasons: Our Favourite Seasonal Recipes (New Covent Garden Soup Company) (Hardcover)

Every kitchen should have a copy of this book. With a wide range of choice for every season it has something for everyone. The 'Beef and Ale Soup' is absolutely delicious as are the other winter warmers, and I look forward to trying some of the summer recipes. I will definately be buying the other Covent Garden recipe books.

Food for Free (Collins GEM) (Paperback)

The book starts with an introduction by the author Richard Mabey. It then has short sections titled 'Roots', 'Green Vegetables', 'Herbs', 'Spices', 'Flowers', 'Fruits', 'Making Jellies and Jams' and 'Nuts'. They include general advice, observations and uses. The main section of the book is given over to identification, with at least two pages per entry. An interesting section follows titled ’Picking Rules’ which gives advice on how to pick correctly how to stay safe. The last section before the main body of the book is a summary calendar which groups the picking times for entries into a colour-coded calendar - very useful as a quick reference...

Hugh Johnson's Pocket Wine Book 2008 (Hugh Johnson's Pocket Wine Book) (Hardcover)

This year's edition boasts up-to-date news on more than 6,000 wines, growers, and regions from world experts, with invaluable vintage information, peerless food and wine matching tips, as well as a personal review of the last three decades from the world's best-known wine writer. Maintaining the same authoritative tone and clarity of presentation that has come to characterise this classic, it also includes a special new full-colour feature on Italian wine.

101 One-pot Dishes: Tried-and-tested Recipes (Good Food 101) (Paperback)

This cookbook is one of the most useful I own. Its recipes are simple, easy to follow and the meals are delicious. Both myself and my partner work full time and have been able to have 'real food' when we get in rather than sticking a ready meal in the microwave. Lots of the recipes only take up to half an hour and you don't need a lot of fancy ingredients. I've found that I can get everything I want from a large supermarket (I haven't got the time or the money to go to six different shops to find exotic ingredients). The whole range of books are good but this is till my favourite. Also it has pictures of all the dishes, which means I can see if I've gone wrong! I'm not a great cook but I manage these recipes and can have a nice homecooked meal.

Complete Cookery Course: Vol 1-3 in 1v (Hardcover)

This was bought for me when I moved into my first home and I couldn't manage without it. When I emigrated to the United States, this was the only book I brought with me. It is excellent for the basics - pancakes, yorkshire puds and perfect rice. The Christmas cake is the best recipe I have ever found... If I had only 1 book in my kitchen, this would definitley be it!

Good Housekeeping Cookery Book: The Cook's Classic Companion (Good Housekeeping Institute) (Hardcover)

This is an outstanding product. It contains almost every recipie that you'll ever need and much, much more. I saw an old 1980's copy of this book that a good friend of mine owned and decided to buy this from Amazon. I am very, very impressed and would commend this to any chef, cook or house wife/husband. Get a copy whilst you can!

The Game Cookbook (Hardcover)

The Game Cookbook is a rare example of a book which can be judged by its cover. The beautifully illustrated pages are matched by the superb recipes and personal narrative written by Clarissa Dickson Wright and Johnny Scott. Often I have thought that modern recipe books, peppered with escapist photographs that bear no relation to what's normally found in a kitchen, belong more on a coffee table than they do stacked haphazardly next to the wooden spoons. The Game Cookbook however achieves both aesthetic success and irreplacable practical guidance as to how to cook game. Yes, I did feel mild pangs of guilt as I besmirched the pages of the recipe for salmon with chicory and Roquefort with a cheese-laden fork, but as soon the pastry rose in the oven and the aroma filled my house I forgot all about defacing my new book...
