'A brilliant new book'- Daily Mail
Eating healthily can be a confusing business. But what if there were a single, simple change you could make that would transform your health, without forcing you to give up the foods you love?
According to a growing body of international studies, little tweaks to your everyday diet to get you beyond the 5-a-day minimum and towards 10-a-day could slash your risk of developing the biggest diseases to affect the Western world. In fact, experts agree that simply eating more fruit and veg is the single most important dietary change you can do for your health!
As only 3 out of 10 people are even achieving the minimum amount of fruit and veg, this book aims to make getting there easy. No gimmicks, no 'banned' foods, no miserly portion sizes. Just 80 of the classic recipes you know and love made healthier (and tastier) by simply upping the amount of fruit and veg in them, all backed by the best science available.

Wine of plenty
Salvador Dali's epicurean guidebook
Hot on the heels (or lobster claws) of the best-selling Salvador Dali phenomenon, Les diners de Gala, TASCHEN presents the artist's equally surreal and sensual viticulture follow-up: The Wines of Gala. A Dalinian take on pleasures of the grape and a coveted collectible, the book sets out to organize wines "according to the sensations they create in our very depths." Through eclectic metrics like production method, weight, and color, the book presents wines of the world in such innovative, Daliesque groupings as "Wines of Frivolity," "Wines of the Impossible," and "Wines of Light."
Bursting with imagery, the book features more than 140 illustrations by Dali. Many of these are appropriated artworks, including various classical nudes, all of them reconstructed with suitably Surrealist, provocative touches, like Jean-Francois Millet's The Angelus, one of Dali's favorite points of reference over the decades. Dali also included what is now considered one of the greatest works from his late "Nuclear Mystic" phase, The Sacrament of the Last Supper (1955), which sets the iconic biblical scene in a translucent dodecahedron-shaped space before a Catalonian coastal landscape. Dali was by this stage a devout Catholic, simultaneously captivated by science, optical illusion, and the atomic age.
The first section is dedicated to "Ten Divine Dali Wines," an overview of 10 important wine-growing regions, while the second develops Dali's revolutionary ordering of wine by emotional experience, instead of by geography or variety. Rather than any prescriptive classification, it's a flamboyant, free-flowing manifesto in favor of taste and feeling, as much a multisensory treat as a full-bodied document of Dali's late-stage oeuvre, in which the artist both reflected on formative influences and refined his own cultural legacy.
Cooking doesn't have to be complicated - that's why Jamie's 5 Ingredients - Quick & Easy Food is sure to become your new best friend in the kitchen.
It's all about making the journey to good food, super-simple. Every recipe uses just five key ingredients, ensuring you can get a plate of food together fast, whether it's finished and on the table super-quickly, or after minimal hands-on prep, you've let the oven do the hard work for you.

Each recipe has been tried and tested (and tested again!) to ensure the book is packed with no-fuss, budget-friendly dishes that you can rustle up, any day of the week.
With over 130 recipes, and chapters on Chicken, Beef, Pork, Lamb, Fish, Eggs, Veg, Salads, Pasta, Rice & Noodles and Sweet Things, there's plenty of quick and easy recipe inspiration to choose from. Think Roast tikka chicken - a whole bird rubbed with curry paste and roasted over golden potatoes and tender cauliflower, finished with fresh coriander. Or, Crazy simple fish pie - flaky smoked haddock, spring onions, spinach and melty Cheddar, all topped off with crisp, golden filo, and ready to tuck into in less than 30 minutes. With every recipe you'll find a visual ingredient guide, serving size, timings, a short, easy-to-follow method, and quick-reference nutritional information.
This is Jamie's easiest-to-use book yet, and the perfect cookbook for busy people.
The Instant Pot was first created in 2010 as seven cooking gadgets in one: pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer, fryer, yoghurt maker and warmer. It has fourteen built-in smart programs: Soup, Meat/Stew, Bean/Chilli, Poultry, Saute, Steam, Rice, Porridge, Multigrain, Slow Cook, Keep-Warm, Yoghurt, Pasteurise and Fermenting. Over the last six months Instant Pots have become a viral sensation in the UK, achieving what the Daily Mail has called 'cult-like' status. Despite already selling many thousands in the USA (one machine has 24,000 reviews on Amazon.com), Amazon.co.uk (with 1,500 reviews for the same machine) quickly ran out of stock of the device, which sells for under GBP100. Pinterest is flooded with the various recipes you can make in the device, from stews to cheesecake. The Essential Instant Pot Cookbook provides plenty of failsafe recipes such as a whole roasted chicken with mushroom gravy and decadent New York cheesecake, also a hearty array of contemporary meals, such as Greek-style Gigantes beans with fresh feta, braised pork loin with balsamic vinegar and caramelized onions, and much, much more!

Gigi Butler of Gigi's Cupcakes shares her personal success story, her hard-won business acumen, and the life-changing inspiration that she's gained from a challenging life. Each chapter includes a delicious dessert recipe for cupcakes and more! As a young child, Gigi knew that if she wanted to succeed, she had to work hard and offer a service that people wanted to buy. At age seven, she sold eggs out of her little red wagon to neighbors. At age fifteen, she bought cleaning supplies and started a cleaning service out of her rural California home. When she moved to Nashville at nineteen, she had her heart set on becoming a country music star. She cleaned houses by day and took every singing opportunity she could find by night. But when she found herself still doing the same thing at age thirty, she realized that God had better plans for her. If she wouldn't be a successful singer, she decided she would grow a business that she could be proud of. An extraordinary baker throughout her life, she decided to open a cupcake shop with all the money she could pull together. With the help and support of her family, she was able to open her first store in a prime Nashville location. The news of her cupcakes spread quickly, and the franchise became a huge success. In The Secret Ingredient, Gigi shares how her failure led her to explore her passion for baking and how she became a successful businesswoman. With spunk and humor, she weaves her hard-won wisdom and business acumen into the fun, fascinating, and instructive stories of her life. Each inspirational chapter concludes with a treasured family recipe for cupcakes and other scrumptious desserts. For anyone with big dreams, Gigi's message is simple: believe in yourself, walk with integrity, work hard, and trust in God. Your life may not turn out exactly how you expected or hoped, but it will be so much better than you could have ever imagined.
