At last pulses are ditching their 70s hippie label and are back in vogue. Pulses are incredibly economical and healthy and, increasingly, people are looking for new sources of protein as meat eating goes on the wane (for both environmental and economical reasons). The time is ripe for a truly modern look at preparing these under-exploited ingredients. Including an illustrated guide to pulses, this exhaustive volume will also cover all you need to know to buy, prepare and cook pulses, and how to store them. 180 recipes are divided into dips and purees, fritters, croquettes and patties, soups, salads, formal starters, sides, vegetarian mains, and 'the full monty' (hearty mains, including meat). Jenny Chandler has collected a mouthwatering range of recipes that are truly international in flavour and will provide plenty of tips for everyday catering. With modern, crisp photography and an elegant design this is a book to update every foodie's bookshelf and will be a go-to book for years to come.
Chocolate... dark, white or milk; smooth, plain and creamy or bursting with flavours and textures, it's guaranteed to get the pulses racing. And with chocolate-making now one of the most exciting areas of Britain's artisan food scene, this book takes you on a tantalising tasting tour of the country's sweet spots that helps you explore chunks of Britain while enjoying the country's best and most authentic chocolate. Whether they're based in the Highlands of Scotland or the mountains of Wales; a shed in Cleethorpes or in the shadow of Winchester Cathedral, we seek out the rising stars of the chocolate industry, try their mouthwatering products and explore towns and cities where the bean-to-bar magic takes place. Among the people and places included are Duffy Sheardown, a former Formula One racing engineer who makes bars of chocolate in a shed in Cleethorpes that are prized by chocolate connoisseurs all over the world; Willie Harcourt-Cooze, a glamorous globetrotter who grows cocoa in Venezuala and makes chocolate in Uff culme, Devon (sold in Waitrose); and the passionate young women of Dormouse, who from tiny premises in Manchester are winning international accolades.
Louisiana can be a complicated place, but the state's good food and friendly people are simple facts. Pairing these two indisputable truths, author Alex V. Cook takes readers to the many unsung diners, quirky low-fuss restaurants, and family-run establishments that serve up the very best of true Louisiana cuisine. From a gas station with the best boudin links to a Vietnamese bakery with mouthwatering bA!nh mA, each of these lesser-known culinary gems stitched across southeast Louisiana offers tasty local fare in a down-to-earth atmosphere. Setting off from the state capital of Baton Rouge and winding through the back roads of Cajun country, then turning southward to the Gulf, and finally veering onto side streets in New Orleans, Cook profiles more than thirty must-visit eateries with wit and an eye for the authentic. Along the way, a culinary landscape emerges that is markedly genuine, surprisingly diverse, and deliciously free from affectation. With indispensable venue information, personal recommendations, and entertaining anecdotes, Seat Yourself: The Best of South Louisiana's Local Diners, Lunch Houses, and Roadside Stops is a vivid, humorous, and sharply written hat tip to those Louisiana's constants: amazing food and great people. ""Cook's vivid travelogue and deft observations [show] what these gathering spots mean to Louisiana culture: The way we eat, drink, and dance tells stories about who we are.""- Nola.com/Times- Picayune ""Alex has written a terrifically informative, highly entertaining, compulsively readable guide.""- James Fox-Smith, editor of Country Roads magazine

The growing concern about the importance of pure and proper ingredients in ice cream and the rediscovery of the joys of jellies and gelatin desserts of all kinds has prompted the reissue of this rare classic text. Written by the authors specifically to remind readers of the unique and inimitable delights that are only to be achieved by using fresh fruits and juices, syrups, liqueurs, and creams, it shows what a delicious variety of iced treats were once widely available -- and can still be made quickly and easily today.
The books begins with an exceptional selection of "water ices" as sorbets were once known -- lime, tangerine, apple, mille fleur, pistachio, white raspberry, muscat, and many more. Sorbets are increasingly popular, both for their clear taste and the fact that they are fat free. Then comes a section on granitas of a very sophisticated kind -- roman punch, rum punch, and a sensational dry sherry granita.
Section II starts wth cream ices of both kinds -- those that use cream and those that have a custard base. Among the enticements on offer are raspberry and red currant ice cream, green tea ice cream, and a luscious almond praline cream ice. Iced souffles come next including caramel and the aptly-named souffle des anges, a heavenly confection of maraschino and orange-flower. Bombes feature next, with instructions on how to prepare such forgotten delights as Pompadour Bombe (coffee cream, strawberry cream, lemon water ice, tangerine water ice) and the irresistible Harlequin Bombe (green chartreuse cream and orange water ice). From the cold charms of ices the book moves on to the cool blandishments of jelly. The maraschino, cassis, and rose jellies, elegant vanillaand coffee jellies, and wonderful fresh fruit jellies to while the summer away -- grape, cherry, peach, apricot, and white currant. Next come the jellied creams, justly beloved by the Victorians: succulent nectarine cream, cantaloupe melon cream, mirabel cream, mulberry cream, greengage cream, and many more. Then come the liqueur creams: chartreuse both green and yellow, pink maraschino cream, chestnut and caramel creams perfect for winter, and regal Victoria cream studded with jewel-like glace fruits.
The book continues with a section on jams, preserves, and compotes, concluding with a section on wine cups and fruit beverages including refreshing cherryade, mille fruitade, and the ravishing Chianti cup -- a holiday in a glass. Full directions are given for all recipes, and there is a detailed index.
Affordable home ice cream making machines are now widely available, and for the creams and jellies no equipment is required except for a fridge. So buy this book and rediscover the lost world of ices, jellies, and creams.
