    Format: HARD COVER
    Publishing status: ACTIVE TITLE

    'Fast to make, slow to ferment - how to fit baking nourishing, delicious and wholesome sourdough into everyday life' - Dr Michael Mosley

    'Britain's queen of sourdough.' - Telegraph

    'She's the real deal: a total inspiration.' - Diana Henry

    'Vanessa's work on sourdough and the gut microbiome is changing the way we think of food, health and baking.' - Tim Spector, author of The Diet Myth

    Sourdough is one of the tastiest and most nutritious breads you can make, but it has a reputation for being both tricky and time-consuming. 10-Minute Sourdough is Vanessa Kimbell's foolproof guide to slow bread for those with busy lives.

    None of the fuss-free, no-knead recipes - which include everything from a basic sourdough boule to tomato focaccia and apple spelt sourdough with cinnamon butter - require more than 10 minutes' active work in total (not including fermentation time or time in the oven) and mean that anyone can turn their hand to sourdough baking, no matter how little time they have.

    Duncan's approach to food is fearless, take-no-prisoners, bold and exciting, inspired by his South African heritage. If his multi-awarded, South Australian-based restaurant Africola was a type of music, it would be a full-on mash-up of Kwaito meets Euro pop meets black metal. His food is cooked on fire, in embers or ashes, in ovens, or cast iron pots - from whole smoked pig South African/Australian style, to homemade biltong, hot smoked mackerel and horseradish, whole roasted cauliflower with tahini sauce, and the world's greatest roast potato recipe for complete idiots. Duncan's words aren't pretty, and he's refreshingly honest about the highs and lows of his industry and the people within it, delivering home truths for cooks and chefs alike. These recipes include an amazing array of meats, as well as seafood and a slew of intensely flavourful, veg-forward dishes. There is also a culinary encyclopaedia of ferments, condiments and pickles - adding richness and complexity to any dish - along with a solid pastry section and a bunch of ridiculous cocktails.

    Title: ALL DAY BAKING : Savoury, Not Sweet
    Author: JAMES MICHAEL AND PIPPA
    Format: HARD COVER
    Publishing status: ACTIVE TITLE

    For every two lovers of sweet baked treats, there is at least another who will take the gruyere gougere or the curry pastie every time, thank you. All Day Baking: Savoury, Not Sweet is a baking cookbook – at last – for them. Its mission is to deliver comforting, inventive and wholegrain-forward ideas for pies, sausage rolls, pasties and myriad other mostly pastry-based recipes, alongside gutsy accompaniments that equip the reader with the tools to transform delicious bakes into nourishing any-time-of-day meals.

    Author Michael James is a Michelin-restaurant chef by training who was drawn early to the art, precision, and satisfaction of baking. In All Day Baking, his second book, he turns his attention to the pasties of his UK childhood, the pies he creates today for his young family, and the quiches, sausage rolls, palmiers and galettes that have earned him a cultish following in Australia and beyond. As well, he delivers a master class in pastry – from puff to rye to vegan and gluten-free – gifting readers a foundation knowledge that sets them on a path to their own freewheeling baking adventures.

    The book is structured across the arc of a day but the recipes at their heart are interchangeable – if you fancy beetroot & shallot galette for breakfast or bacon & onion quiche for dinner – that’s perfectly ok. And throughout there is a nod to Michael and wife Pippa James’ ethos, rooted in sustainability, seasonality and a desire to minimise their waste footprint.

    "It is such a joy to finally see a cookbook on beautiful Baltic cuisine, done with so much sensitivity and respect by Zuza Zak, one of my favourite authors. It is making me pine to travel to the region more than ever. Before I can do that, I will enjoy reading and cooking from this wonderful book." Olia Hercules

    In the Baltics, two worlds meet: the Baltic Sea joins Eastern Europe and Scandinavia, bringing with it culinary influences and cultural exchange. All three Baltic capitals, Vilnius, Tallinn and Riga, are UNESCO World Heritage Sites, steeped in history and culture. Amber & Rye explores this exciting part of Eastern Europe, guiding you around the capitals, sharing stories and discovering a dynamic, new style of cooking. Contextualized within the Baltics' rich history and culture, the food is a doorway to a deeper understanding of the region and what makes it tick.

    The recipes explore new culinary horizons, are grounded in Baltic tradition, yet inspired by contemporary trends, making them modern, unique and easy to recreate at home. And in addition to the recipes and travel stores, there are snippets of poetry, literature, songs and proverbs, adding a rich layer that makes Amber & Rye a cultural reference point for travellers as well as a showcase for the vibrant new cuisine of the Baltic States.
