7 Ways to reinvent your favourite ingredients with more than 120 new, exciting and tasty recipes

Jamie's done his homework and looked at the top ingredients we buy week in, week out. We're talking about those meal staples we all pick up on autopilot - chicken breasts, salmon fillets, mince, eggs, potatoes, broccoli, to name but a few. We're all busy, but that shouldn't stop us from having a tasty, nutritious meal after a long day at work or looking after the kids. So, rather than trying to change what we buy, Jamie wants to give everyone brand new inspiration for their favourite ingredients, the kind of things you can pick up in any supermarket.

Jamie will share 7 achievable, exciting and tasty ways to cook 19 hero ingredients, and each recipe will have no more than 8 ingredients within it. At least 5 recipes from each 7 way will be everyday options from both an ease and nutritional point of view, meaning you're covered for every day of the week. With everything from fake-aways and tray-bakes to family and freezer favourites, you'll find bags of inspiration to help you mix things up in the kitchen.

Building on the success of Nicola Graimes's Big Book of Low Carb Recipes cookbook, with sales of over 120,000 copies, The Right Carb cookbook shows how eating the right carbs in moderate amounts is the answer to good health. The latest research shows that a diet featuring a moderate amount of carbs (around 50-55% of calories), rather than extremely low (below 40%) or high (over 60%) is the best for our long-term health and wellbeing, with either extreme said to negatively affect life expectancy. The Right Carb is a timely guide with an informative look at the importance of eating good carbs. With practical advice and tips, the book explains how eating the 'right' carbs are vital: providing energy, improving the health of the gut, digestion and mood as well as aiding sleep. It shows how to choose carbs as well as the best ways to prepare and cook them for maximum nutrition and minimum nutrient-loss. The book highlights that balance is key, with other food groups, such as good-quality plant proteins and certain fats, being equally important. Supporting the sensible dietary advice and tips, The Right Carb features a collection of over 50 inspirational recipes with chapters on Breakfasts, Small Plates, Big Plates, Sides and Sweet Treats. Each recipe has a nutritional breakdown of carbs, fibre and calories to guide you. The Right Carb is the complete package to sensible carb-eating for the long term and not a quick-fix diet. Packed with delicious, speedy recipes, this is a practical and inspirational approach to maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

Eating the right sort of fat is tantamount to a good and balanced diet. Fats are a major source of energy, contain all the essential fatty acids and help the body to absorb vitamins A, D and E.

Nicola Graimes dispels the myths about fats, including information on which fats are healthy, how to avoid trans fats, how to increase your intake of mono- and poly-unsaturated fats, what is 'good' and 'bad' cholesterol and what your daily fat intake should be. She showcases the best ways to prepare and cook fats for maximum nutrition and flavour and minimum nutrient loss. With a collection of over 50 recipes, Nicola covers Breakfasts, Small Plates, Big Plates, Sides and Treats. Each recipe has a nutritional breakdown of saturated and unsaturated fats and calories to guide you. Bursting with delicious, speedy recipes, this is a practical and inspirational approach to maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

Miso is fast becoming a vital ingredient for the health-conscious foodie. The fermented soybean paste, which originates from Japan, is prized for its rich, complex umami flavour alongside its health-giving properties. Despite being used by the Japanese for hundreds of years, miso has been experiencing a new found popularity as top chefs, cooks and food writers champion miso as an essential yet exciting everyday ingredient. In Miso Tasty: The Cookbook Bonnie Chung, founder of the UK's only dedicated miso brand and a self-taught miso expert, explores the great versatility of this exciting paste, and demonstrates the depth that it can bring to everyday cooking. Her book shares 60 recipes on how to enjoy this ingredient in both Japanese and non-Japanese dishes. The recipes are a mix of well-loved classics and new discoveries: swirl it into a hot stock for miso soup, mix it with a drop of olive oil and a spoon of mustard for a deeply satisfying salad dressing, or baste it on to steaks for a quick but deeply flavoured barbecue marinade. The book will also include simple cooking tips on how to make the most of miso, an in-depth exploration of the many different types of miso and even how to make your own miso at home. Miso is full of possibilities - as diets become more focused on being wholesome and nutritious, this ancient soybean paste is fast becoming a vital ingredient in every cook's kitchen.

Uncultivated - Wild Apples, Real Cider, and the Complicated Art of Making a Living (Paperback): Andy Brennan Uncultivated - Wild Apples, Real Cider, and the Complicated Art of Making a Living (Paperback)
Andy Brennan
R409 R345 Discovery Miles 3 450 Save R64 (16%) Ships in 10 - 15 working days

"The Book for Cider Lovers"--New York Times Today, food is being reconsidered. It's a front-and-center topic in everything from politics to art, from science to economics. We know now that leaving food to government and industry specialists was one of the twentieth century's greatest mistakes. The question is where do we go from here. Author Andy Brennan describes uncultivation as a process: It involves exploring the wild; recognizing that much of nature is omitted from our conventional ways of seeing and doing things (our cultivations); and realizing the advantages to embracing what we've somehow forgotten or ignored. For most of us this process can be difficult, like swimming against the strong current of our modern culture. The hero of this book is the wild apple. Uncultivated follows Brennan's twenty-four-year history with naturalized trees and shows how they have guided him toward successes in agriculture, in the art of cider making, and in creating a small-farm business. The book contains useful information relevant to those particular fields, but is designed to connect the wild to a far greater audience, skillfully blending cultural criticism with a food activist's agenda. Apples rank among the most manipulated crops in the world, because not only do farmers want perfect fruit, they also assume the health of the tree depends on human intervention. Yet wild trees live all around us, and left to their own devices, they achieve different forms of success that modernity fails to apprehend. Andy Brennan learned of the health and taste advantages of such trees, and by emulating nature in his orchard (and in his cider) he has also enjoyed environmental and financial benefits. None of this would be possible by following today's prevailing winds of apple cultivation. In all fields, our cultural perspective is limited by a parallel proclivity. It's not just agriculture: we all must fight tendencies toward specialization, efficiency, linear thought, and predetermined growth. We have cultivated those tendencies at the exclusion of nature's full range. If Uncultivated is about faith in nature, and the power it has to deliver us from our own mistakes, then wild apple trees have already shown us the way.
