    Juan Mari Arzak is the third generation of chefs at the restaurant in San Sebastian that bears his family name. Arzak has held three Michelin stars, the maximum that can be awarded, since 1989. It is a member of many of the world's most prestigious associations and appears in countless restaurant guides. It has also been ranked on the World's 50 Best Restaurant List since the ranking's early days. This book tells the story of a family and a cuisine. It takes a look at Juan Mari's role as a cutting-edge chef and restaurateur, and an inspiration for generations of young cooks. It commemorates the 40th anniversary of the birth of the so-called New Basque cuisine, of which Juan Mari was the leader, a movement which formed the germ of the current Spanish gastronomic revolution, and it contains the foremost recipes of the last ten years of his work, as well as the most emblematic of his career. For nearly twenty years Juan Mari has shared the role of Chef at Restaurante Arzak with his daughter Elena. The book also follows Elena's rise in the kitchen, recognising the essence of her creative process and the magic she and her father create through the design and balance of plates and menus. This introduction to the close-knit team of visionaries and their innovative recipes offers a glimpse into the future of Restaurante Arzak.

    For Natalie Paull, baking is a gift. It’s also a powerful elixir of pleasure, connection, generosity and joy. In Beatrix Bakes, Natalie indulges in baking’s sweetest moments with more than seventy recipes inspiring bakers of all kinds to mix and match to make recipes their own – whether it’s a Lemon curd cream crepe cake or Pecan maple cinnamon scrolls.

    Sparkling with Natalie's distinct voice, and packaged with full-colour photography, illustrations and rock-solid tips for a perfect bake, Beatrix Bakes also includes 'Adaptrix' suggestions (offering ways readers might do things differently, including short cuts) and is peppered with infographics to help them follow their baking heart. Try The Cheesecake (That You Will Love The Most) with a crumb base, or a bought biscuit base, or no base, or a sponge base, or even a failed cookie base! And from there, pick a topping from sour cream, to crumb, to fruity bits. The recipes are divided across eight chapters: Doughs, pastries & crusts; Tarts, pies, a crostata & a galette; The cake list; One in the hand; Yeasted bakes; Fruit-full; Creams, custards, fillings, glazes and buttercreams; and Finishing touches.

    While Natalie's creations are inspired by classics the world over, they are irreverent too, and in Beatrix Bakes she delights in showing readers that – once they get the foundations right – the truest magic will come from a willingness to play (with the insurance of her many clever ideas and back-up plans in their apron pocket!).

    Beatrix Bakes will guide anyone who loves the adventure of baking to perfect their skills and break the baking mould.

    Beyond the North Wind
    ISBN: 9780399580390
    Publication date: 01/02/2020

    Russian cookbooks tend to focus on the food that was imported from France in the nineteenth century or the impoverished food of the Soviet era. Beyond the North Wind explores the true heart of Russian food, a cuisine that celebrates whole grains, preserved and fermented foods, and straightforward but robust flavors.

    Recipes for a dazzling array of pickles and preserves, infused vodkas, homemade dairy products such as farmers cheese and cultured butter, puff pastry hand pies stuffed with mushrooms and fish, and seasonal vegetable soups showcase Russian foods that are organic and honest--many of them old dishes that feel new again in their elegant minimalism. Despite the country's harsh climate, this surprisingly sophisticated cuisine has an incredible depth of flavor to offer in dishes like Braised Cod with Horseradish, Roast Lamb with Kasha, Black Currant Cheesecake, and so many more.

    This home-style cookbook with a strong sense of place and knack for storytelling brings to life a rarely seen portrait of Russia, its people, and its palate--with 100 recipes, gorgeous photography, and essays on the little-known culinary history of this fascinating and wild part of the world.

    Make your own preservative-free hot sauce, ketchup, mayo, salsa, mustards, harissa, ferments, pickles and preserves from scratch.

    Once you've tasted homemade condiments, where you're in charge of the flavour profile, you'll never go back to store bought. Too often, commercial versions are loaded with extra salt, sugar, allergens and preservatives, and can taste bland and uninspiring. Why not make your own? From ketchup, sweet chilli sauce and taco seasoning, to peppery American hot sauce, sizzling Tunisian harissa, tangy Dijon mustard, as well as infused vinegars, aromatic spice blends, pickles and preserves, here are more than 90 simple recipes that show you step by step how to make your own condiments. This book is a love song to condiments and the joy that making them brings - that weeknight stir-fry will taste so much richer with your homemade oyster sauce and your tacos even more mouth-watering when paired with the hot sauce you've fermented at home.
