The intention behind Olami and my life is to be as connected to nature as nature is to us.

Michel Roux Jr's delicious collection of French recipes for the modern home cook. Michel Roux Jr is one of the best-known and most loved French chefs in Britain. He runs the renowned two-Michelin star restaurant Le Gavroche in London, as well as a number of other restaurants, and has presented many popular food programmes on TV.

Gone are the very rich creamy sauces, heavy meat dishes and complicated cooking techniques, as Michel replaces these with recipes that delight the palate without threatening the waistline. For instance, a delicate pea tart with filo-like brik pastry, a new hollandaise sauce containig hardly any butter and lots of clever low-calorie dressings. Michel also features recipes that can be made in one pot for speed and convenience, such as the delicious Poulet Basquaise - a fragrant, simple stew of chicken, peppers and spices. Other dishes can be put together from store cupboard ingredients for a quick mid-week supper - such as Chickpea and harissa soup, to be served alongside one of his many simple salads, tempting vegetable dishes or speedy desserts. These are not restaurant dishes - this is the food that Michel and his family cook and eat at home. In his beautiful new book, Michel brings the great cuisine of his native land into the 21st century - truly a French food revolution!

In The Arabian Nights Cookbook, author Habeeb Salloum has compiled an amazing array of recipes that celebrate this blending of cultures while still making it compatible with the everyday kitchens of the Western world.

Kate McGhie is a farmer's daughter, born into seven generations of a family who worked and respected the land. Their farm in rural Victoria produced everything they ate.

The orchard was shared: the lower third for possums, the top third for birds and the middle section for Kate's family-everyone was happy. In this book filled with over 120 recipes and stories from her family's farm, Kate McGhie writes with wit and warmth as she explores the foundations and flavour of Australian country cooking, drawing on tradition to present classic, tried and true dishes as well as contemporary interpretations for today's table.

By the time he was twenty-seven years old, Kwame Onwuachi (winner of the 2019 James Beard Foundation Award for Rising Star Chef of the Year) had opened—and closed—one of the most talked about restaurants in America. He had launched his own catering company with twenty thousand dollars that he made from selling candy on the subway, yet he’d been told he would never make it on television because his cooking wasn’t “Southern” enough. In this inspiring memoir about the intersection of race, fame, and food, he shares the remarkable story of his culinary coming-of-age.
Growing up in the Bronx, as a boy Onwuachi was sent to rural Nigeria by his mother to “learn respect.” However, the hard-won knowledge gained in Africa was not enough to keep him from the temptation and easy money of the streets when he returned home. But through food, he broke out of a dangerous downward spiral, embarking on a new beginning at the bottom of the culinary food chain as a chef on board a Deepwater Horizon cleanup ship, before going on to train in the kitchens of some of the most acclaimed restaurants in the country and appearing as a contestant on Top Chef.
Onwuachi’s love of food and cooking remained a constant throughout, even when he found the road to success riddled with potholes. As a young chef, he was forced to grapple with just how unwelcoming the world of fine dining can be for people of color, and his first restaurant, the culmination of years of planning, shuttered just months after opening. A powerful, heartfelt, and shockingly honest story of chasing your dreams—even when they don’t turn out as you expected—Notes from a Young Black Chef is one man’s pursuit of his passions, despite the odds.

Food writer Kate Gibbs grew up at the apron strings of her grandmother, Margaret Fulton. The matriarch of Australian cooking taught Kate everything she needed to know, including how to make bereavement soup, how thickly to spread butter on bread and that porridge must absolutely be made with salt. In this privileged glimpse into a modern food dynasty, Kate reveals some of the highs and lows from the life of her extraordinary grandmother, as well as her own experiences growing up 'foodie'. This rich legacy has informed Kate's career and inspired her to talk to a new generation about the joys of cooking and the importance of good, real food. As well as chronicling her own journey, Kate has distilled this kitchen wisdom into fifty beautifully photographed recipes, a mixture of classic dishes such as Scotch broth and homemade crumpets that recall Margaret's Scottish heritage, to Kate's modern takes on slow-roasted lamb shoulder and custard-filled chocolate profiteroles. These are the recipes that both women grew up with, and which endure as family favourites. Pull up a chair and enjoy.
