    There are few areas of modern life that offer as much information and advice, often contradictory, as diet and health: eat a lot of meat, don't eat meat; whole-grains are healthy, whole-grains are a disaster; and on it goes. Biological anthropologist Stephen Le cuts through the confusing mass of information to present the long view of our diet.

    In 100 Million Years of Food Le takes readers on an historic and geographic tour of how different cuisines have evolved in tandem with their particular environments, as our ancestors took advantage of the resources and food available to them. Like his mentor Jared Diamond, Le uses history and science to present a fascinating and wide-ranging tour of human history as viewed through what and how we eat. Travelling the world to places as far-flung as Vietnam, Kenya, Nova Scotia, and Iowa, Le visits people producing food using traditional methods as well as modern techniques, and looks at how our relationship to food has strayed from centuries of tradition, to mass-produced assembly lines dependent on chemicals that bring with them a host of problems.

    100 Million Years of Food argues that our ancestral diets and lifestyles are the best first line of defence in protecting our health; the optimal diet is to eat what your ancestors ate. In this clear-cut and compelling book, we learn not only what to eat, but how our diets are the product of millions of years of evolution.

    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.

    Title: ACQUACOTTA : Recipes and Stories from Tuscany's Secret Silver Coast
    Author: DAVIES EMIKO
    Format: HARD COVER
    Publishing status: ACTIVE TITLE

    Acquacotta is a celebration of the traditional cuisine of a lesser known part of Tuscany, the Silver Coast, which forms part of the territory of Maremma. Acquacotta, literally meaning "cooked water", is Maremma's most famous dish, a soup made of slowly simmered tomatoes and onions and poached eggs. There are countless variations, and every town has its own.

    The book includes personal stories, memories and lessons from the people (producers, winemakers, breeders, fisherman) Emiko has met. The Silver Coast is a geographically quite narrow area in the southernmost coastal part of the region - and includes the island-like promontory of Monte Argentario, the island of Giglio, the lagoon town of Orbetello and the last Tuscan town on the border of Lazio, Capalbio. Surrounded by thick, wild boar-inhabiting, forest-covered hills and twisted, ancient olive trees, the area is known for its rustic peasant cooking, where hearty soups, hand-reared chickens or rabbits, foraged wild vegetables, mushrooms and chestnuts and wild-caught game have long provided sustenance - and still colour the local cuisine.Acquacotta champions the food Emiko loves to eat and cook - comforting, low-maintenance and easy to prepare. It's food that calls for sharing with friends or family, gathered around a big table. And like most peasant cuisine, it is about getting the best out of a few ingredients and providing a belly-filling meal that not only doesn't cost the earth, but is delicious.

    Acquacotta offers more than 80 recipes across five chapters divided by themes: Dal Bosco - which means feed from the woods and includes foraged and hunted foods; Dal Mare - which means from the sea and includes typical seafood of the area including from the lagoon; Dal Orto - which means from the vegetable patch; Dal Fattoria - which means from the farm and include dishes inspired by the farm tradition in the area, which often includes legumes, grains, rabbit, poultry and eggs; Dolci - sweets, preserves and homemade liquors.

    South of Johnston (or SoJo, as it's more affectionately known) is a fixture on the brunch circuit of Melbourne foodies.

    Sojo has resident bees, fruit trees, herbs and a worm farm too and its food showcases the fruits of the local providores. The Fitzroy cafe is Manhattan meets Melbourne, an artfully converted warehouse with a long airy dining room with communal tables, with an industrial chic edge.

    On the menu are brunchy, lunchy recipes for breakfast; pide stuffed with chorizo, egg and spinach, and indulgent brioche French toast with caramelised bananas and ice cream. This is eminently cookable sharable food and easily achieved at home.

    A blend of food and lifestyle, the book's content reflects the casual and creative mood of the cafe, with its vintage/industrial look and its locality, a buzzy street in a northerly suburb of Melbourne. The cafe context, as a place where people meet to catch up, do business, relax and work - the cafe as the modern living room where friends meet, eat, talk, relax.

    The food is seasonal and produce is sourced locally from trusted providores, so in spring and summer the recipes are bursting with fresh fruits, vegetables and salads and cooling dishes; in winter, the soups and risottos are warming, the porridge creamy with seasonal fruits, the eggs spiced with warming chorizo and truffle oil.

    Publishing status: ACTIVE TITLE

    Annie's Farmhouse Kitchen is a window on the bucolic world of acclaimed Victorian chef Annie Smithers.

    A handsome, gifty package, it includes a best-of selection of three and four-course menus collected by Annie over the three years of her restaurant, du Fermier, in Trentham. While part of du Fermier's appeal is undeniably its charming central Victorian location, this farmhouse-style eatery is the sort of place intrepid food lovers might equally stumble across in rural France or Dorset or California. Annie's food is classic French Provincial, presented with a distinct pared back, accessible aesthetic (no fuss, with preparation, anyone can do this!), and determined very much by whatever is thriving in her rambling home vegetable garden in Malmsbury. As well as being fully illustrated with delightful watercolours by Robin Cowcher – meet the cat 'Kitten', meet the geese, meet the dog Tommy – Annie's Farmhouse Kitchen will also include photographs that offer another valuable visual dimension to this compelling package. In addition to seasonal recipes (four menus per season), Annie's Farmhouse Kitchen will present readers with four standout feasts: deep mid-winter; summer solstice; spring bounty; and autumn harvest. Annie's distinct voice will feature throughout – both guiding readers with advice about getting the best results from her recipes (what went wrong? what about leftovers? why, exactly, is this pastry so good?), and via occasional entertaining vignettes that tell the story of the daily challenges and victories inevitably associated with running a successful small restaurant in a country town – solo.

    Title: APPETITES : A COOKBOOK
    Author: BOURDAIN ANTHONY
    Format: HARD COVER
    Publishing status: ACTIVE TITLE

    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.

    "The idea for this cookbook came about when my mother and I were looking through an old book of recipes that her grandmother, Kathleen, hand-wrote for her when she married my father in 1963. All the measurements were in ounces, and of course there were no pictures in the book. We were admiring the curly old handwriting, yellowed pages and strange ingredients, and I thought, “This is silly, there’s so much history in this book. I need to cook some of these recipes!”

    I was curious to find out what the food looked and tasted like.The cooking and photographing of the finished products became a documentation process, and before long I decided to make a cookbook of the recipes to keep my great-grandmother’s history alive. My mother suggested we make it a family cookbook by asking the rest of the family to send in their favourite recipes. I took it one step further by including everyone in the extended family, young and old, alive and dead!

    From England to Australia to Singapore, we’ve collected recipes from family members up to eight generations apart. The oldest recipe you’ll find is a list of ingredients for traditional cough medicine, scribbled in a copy of the Bible by my great-great-great-great grandfather in 1853. It includes some unusual ingredients: half an ounce of squills, oil of sweet almond, syrup of mulberries and paregoric elixir. The newest recipe is from my six-year-old son Angus, who has contributed a recipe for hamburgers.

    Cooking has been my creative outlet since my children came along. In my household, there’s always someone in the kitchen making something. It’s total involvement – my husband Will chats to me while I’m cooking, my daughter Sophia will pick the parsley, my oldest daughter Chloe will be baking a cake – the kitchen really is the heart of the house and I’m pretty much always there.

    I’m incredibly proud of this book, as is everyone in my extended family. Everyone has embraced the project and feels connected to this delicious documentation of our history. And it all started with my great-grandmother Kathleen (or K.M., as she was known) and her beautiful curly handwriting. K.M. had a colourful life and a lot of secrets that are long forgotten, but at least we have her recipe for trifle. This book is a way to keep the memories of those fascinating ancestors alive, and introduce new generations to delicious, nourishing food."
