Bill Sewell's recipes are innovative, modern and written with great humour and verve. His first cookbook has a large number of supporters. Over 150 recipes have been created for entertaining and the witty asides and stylish veuve of Bill's genius will make this a vegetarian classic to remember . From the feasting of New Year's Eve to the rather guilty better-for-you food for New Year's Resolution dinner to a garlic-free (for obvious reasons!) Valentine's meal, Bill's entertaining book enthralls. Designed with green pantone headings and playful drawings inside...... very much Bill Sewell's tongue-in-cheek - nothing too `worthily' vegetarian - style.
How did drinking the infusions of a unique plant from China become a vital part of everyday life? This gift book presents an entertaining and illuminating introduction to the history and culture of tea, from its origins in the Far East to the flavours and properties of different varieties, and the rituals of tea preparation and drinking around the world. This simple hot beverage is suffused with artistic and religious overtones. The Chinese Ch'a Ching gave very precise guidelines to the preparation and sipping of tea, and the Japanese tea ceremony elevated it to an art form. Following its introduction to the royal court in the seventeenth century, the British created their own traditions, from the elaborate etiquette of afternoon tea to the humble pot of tea at the heart of family life, and the modern appreciation for specialty infusions.

Whether you are the family berry picker, grocery store shopper or cook, here are the best time-tested recipes for cooking with the more abundant and popular species of wild berries indigenous to Alaska. It's all here, from currants to watermelon berries, from milkshakes to mincemeat.
