    Author: OLIVER JAMIE

    Featuring simple, delicious recipes from the new CHANNEL 4 series - Quick and Easy Food - on Monday nights at eight o'clock, Jamie Oliver's 5 Ingredients is his most straightforward book yet.

    'Brilliant' Sunday Times

    Using five ingredients, cleverly combined, you'll conjure up THE most exciting food . . . from this week's episode roast tikka chicken, whole chicken flavoured in tikka paste, roasted with crispy potatoes, golden cauliflower and coriander. Jamie's Carrot & grain salad, pomegranate jewels and creamy feta, fresh mint and sweet dressed carrots, tossed with grains. A SUPER-QUICK crab and fennel spaghetti, fragrant finely sliced fennel, juicy tomatoes and a subtle hit of chilli all stirred into light, delicious spaghetti and crab. For dessert Jamie whips up a classic really sumptuous shortbread, drizzled in dark chocolate and grated orange zest . . . Now that's what we're talking about.

    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. We're talking quality over quantity, a little diligence on the cooking front, and in return massive flavour.

    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 and Noodles and Sweet Things, there's plenty of quick and easy recipe inspiration to choose from.

    How about Jamie's mouth-watering super-quick, after work supper, as seen on This Morning . . . Smoky chorizo salmon - slices of spicy chorizo, salty sweet cherry tomatoes, black olives, basil, and fresh crispy salmon fillets. For dessert, Juicy plum tarte tatin in maple syrup and cinnamon under buttery puff pastry, topped in scoops of vanilla ice cream.

    With every recipe you'll find a visual ingredient guide, serving size, timings, a short, easy-to-follow method, and quick-reference nutritional information.

    Jamie's new cookbook takes the stress out of mealtimes and will inspire cooks and non-cooks alike with beautiful, crazily simple ideas . . .

    Author: PALLAI ANNA

    Anna Pallai was brought up on 1970s stalwarts of stuffed peppers, meatloaf and platters of slightly greying hardboiled eggs. When she rediscovered her mother's grease-stained 70s cookbooks, she knew she needed to share them with the world, and so the hit Twitter account @70s_Party was born.

    Harking back to a simpler pre-Instagram, pre-clean-eating era, when the only concern for your dinner party was whether your aspic would set in time, this is a joyful celebration of food that can give you gout just by looking at it. Covering all the essentials, from starters through to desserts, dinner party etiquette (just how does one start to eat a swan fashioned from a hardboiled egg?) and the dreaded âe~foreignâe(tm) food, there's no potato-fashioned-as-a-stone left unturned.

    Winner of the 2014 National Book Award in nonfiction.

    An Economist Best Book of 2014.
    A vibrant, colorful, and revelatory inner history of China during a moment of profound transformation

    From abroad, we often see China as a caricature: a nation of pragmatic plutocrats and ruthlessly dedicated students destined to rule the global economy-or an addled Goliath, riddled with corruption and on the edge of stagnation. What we don't see is how both powerful and ordinary people are remaking their lives as their country dramatically changes.
    As the Beijing correspondent for "The New Yorker," Evan Osnos was on the ground in China for years, witness to profound political, economic, and cultural upheaval. In "Age of Ambition," he describes the greatest collision taking place in that country: the clash between the rise of the individual and the Communist Party's struggle to retain control. He asks probing questions: Why does a government with more success lifting people from poverty than any civilization in history choose to put strict restraints on freedom of expression? Why do millions of young Chinese professionals-fluent in English and devoted to Western pop culture-consider themselves "angry youth," dedicated to resisting the West's influence? How are Chinese from all strata finding meaning after two decades of the relentless pursuit of wealth?
    Writing with great narrative verve and a keen sense of irony, Osnos follows the moving stories of everyday people and reveals life in the new China to be a battleground between aspiration and authoritarianism, in which only one can prevail.

    Inspired by the seasonal produce, fresh attitude and Italian spirit of Fratelli Fresh, Alla Fratelli takes all that is great about Italian food and serves it up with a cheeky Sydney twist. 'This is how everyone should cook at home,' says Barry McDonald. 'When you're not eating at one of our restaurants, that is.'

    Title: Antonio & Luca Recipes and Stories from My Australian Calabrian Kitchen

    Riccardo Momesso's parents, Antonio and Lucia, moved from Calabria to Australia in the 1950s, bringing with them a rich history of Calabrian cooking traditions - foraging, hunting, fishing, preserving and, most importantly, the tradition of sharing food with family and friends. At its heart, the food of Calabria is peasant food - simple, rustic and generous. Calabrian cuisine is spicier than that of many other Italian regions, and the focus is on creating lots of different dishes from just a handful of seasonal ingredients. Calabrians are also master preservers, their pantries filled with rows of bottled tomato sauce, eggplants preserved in oil, strings of dried chillies and preserved meats such as the distinctive terracotta-coloured Calabrese salami. Antonio and Lucia shows you how to makes these smallgoods, preserves and sauces that are at the heart of Calabrian cooking and much more, with other chapters covering stuzzichini (shared plates), soup, pasta, seafood, meat and dessert. Authentic and delicious recipes include Oven-Dried Black Olives, Baked Eggplant Filled with Lamb and Pecorino, Rigatoni with Handmade Sausage and Mascarpone, Murray Cod with Capers and Green Olives, Prickly Pear Salad and Traditional Ricotta Cannoli. This book is a warm and accessible journey to the heart of the rich cuisine and culture of Calabria.

    Title: Appetites: A Cookbook

    Brash, wild, original and badass. This is Anthony Bourdain's interpretation of a normal cookbook.As a restaurant professional, Bourdain spent his life on the fringes of normality - he worked while normal people played, and played while normal people slept. Since then he has settled (kind of) into family life and is cooking for the people he loves rather than people who pay. These are the recipes he turns to when called in for pancake service at sleepover parties or when preparing a violence-free family dinner.Each and every word is informed by his years in the industry and a life dedicated to food. This is a man who has declared the club sandwich as America's Enemy and wants you to understand the principles of Bad Sandwich Theory. He has distilled his views on dessert to this: it should always be Stilton.Illustrated with photography that somehow manages to be both strangely beautiful and utterly grotesque, this cookbook - Bourdain's first in ten years - is a home-cooking, home-entertaining cookbook like no other.

    Title: Art of Escapism Cooking
    Author: LEE MANDY

    "Lee, who vents about living abroad in her Lady and Pups blog, fuels this stunning cookbook with the ferocity of Sichuan peppercorns and chili oil. . . . An energetic confessional, for Lee is as gifted a writer as she is a cook. . . . Innovative. . . . A] unique and deeply felt debut." - Publisher's Weekly (starred review)

    In this inventive and intensely personal cookbook, the blogger behind the award-winning ladyandpups.com reveals how she cooked her way out of an untenable living situation, with more than eighty delicious Asian-inspired dishes with influences from around the world.

    For Mandy Lee, moving from New York to Beijing for her husband's work wasn't an exotic adventure--it was an ordeal. Growing increasingly exasperated with China's stifling political climate, its infuriating bureaucracy, and its choking pollution, she began "an unapologetically angry food blog," LadyandPups.com, to keep herself from going mad.

    Mandy cooked because it channeled her focus, helping her cope with the difficult circumstances of her new life. She filled her kitchen with warming spices and sticky sauces while she shared recipes and observations about life, food, and cooking in her blog posts. Born in Taiwan and raised in Vancouver, she came of age food-wise in New York City and now lives in Hong Kong; her food reflects the many places she's lived. This entertaining and unusual cookbook is the story of how "escapism cooking"--using the kitchen as a refuge and ultimately creating delicious and satisfying meals--helped her crawl out of her expat limbo.

    Illustrated with her own gorgeous photography, The Art of Escapism Cooking provides that comforting feeling a good meal provides. Here are dozens of innovative and often Asian-influenced recipes, divided into categories by mood and occasion, such as:

    For Getting Out of Bed
    Poached Eggs with Miso Burnt Butter Hollandaise
    Crackling Pancake with Caramel-Clustered Blueberries and Balsamic Honey

    For Slurping
    Buffalo Fried Chicken Ramen
    Crab Bisque Tsukemen

    For a Crowd
    Cumin Lamb Rib Burger
    Italian Meatballs in Taiwanese Rouzao Sauce

    For Snacking
    Wontons with Shrimp Chili Coconut Oil and Herbed Yogurt
    Spicy Chickpea Poppers

    For Sweets
    Mochi with Peanut Brown Sugar and Ice Cream
    Recycled Nuts and Caramel Apple Cake

    Every dish is sublimely delicious and worth the time and attention required. Mandy also demystifies unfamiliar ingredients and where to find them, shares her favorite tools, and provides instructions for essential condiments for the pantry and fridge, such as Ramen Seasoning, Fried Chili Verde Sauce, Caramelized Onion Powder Paste, and her Ultimate Sichuan Chile Oil.

    Award-winning restaurant Darjeeling Express began life as a dinner party with friends; Indian food lovingly cooked from family recipes that go back generations. In this book, Asma reveals the secret to her success, telling her immigrant's story and how food brought her home. The recipes pay homage & to her royal Mughlai ancestry and follow the route of the Darjeeling Express train from the busy streets of Bengal, through Calcutta, where she grew up, and along the foothills of the Himalayas to Hyderabad.&

There are Feasts For Friends for when you want to show off a little and Celebratory Feasts to feed a crowd. Many of the recipes are vegetarian, there are sweet treats and drinks, too, and all feature alongside lesser-known recipes and stories unique to Asma's family. This is more than just a collection of delicious and accessible recipes, it is a celebration of heritage, culture, community and quality. This is Asma's Indian Kitchen.

    Bad Food Bible: How & Why to Eat Sinfully
    ISBN: 9780544952560
    Title: Bad Food Bible: How & Why to Eat Sinfully

    Physician and popular New York Times Upshot contributor Aaron Carroll mines the latest evidence to show that many "bad" ingredients actually aren't unhealthy, and in some cases are essential to our well-being.
    Advice about food can be confusing. There's usually only one thing experts can agree on: some ingredients--often the most enjoyable ones--are bad for you, full stop. But as Aaron Carroll explains, these oversimplifications are both wrong and dangerous: if we stop consuming some of our most demonized ingredients altogether, it may actually hurt us. In The Bad Food Bible, Carroll examines the scientific evidence, showing among other things that you can:
    • Eat red meat several times a week: The health effects are negligible for most people, and actually positive if you're 65 or older.
    • Have a drink or two a day: As long as it's in moderation, it will protect you against cardiovascular disease without much risk.
    • Enjoy a gluten-loaded bagel from time to time: It has less fat and sugar, fewer calories, and more fiber than a gluten-free one.
    • Eat more salt: If your blood pressure is normal, you should be more worried about getting too little sodium than having too much.
    Full of counterintuitive lessons about food we hate to love, The Bad Food Bible is for anyone who wants to forge eating habits that are sensible, sustainable, and occasionally indulgent.
