    Author: BEZ DAVID
    Format: PAPER COVER
    Publishing status: ACTIVE TITLE

    How many of us have sat at our desk at work, counting down the minutes until it’s time for lunch and our staple option that is bland, expensive, unhealthy or just too similar to what we had yesterday – and the day before?

    The author, David Bez, is not a chef. He is a food lover with a limited lunch break; an Italian who cares about what’s on his plate; a designer who knows that you eat with your eyes first. For the past three years, he has made himself a salad for lunch every day at work, with fresh ingredients, minimum preparation time, and maximum flavour. Day after day, his colleagues peer over his shoulder to watch him craft yet another beautiful salad perfectly balanced in its composition
    and bound to both satisfy him and energize him for the afternoon ahead. He has developed a winning formula for creating salads by layering a base, vegetables or fruit, fresh herbs, protein toppings and dressings, which creates a perfect salad every time. Clearly marked with a vegetarian, vegan, raw, omnivore or pescatarian designation, every salad is an inspiration and can be adapted to suit a different diet. Fresh, tinned, jarred and pre-cooked ingredients are all explored; seasonality is key and variety keeps things nutritious and exciting.

    Publishing status: ACTIVE TITLE

    SALT & TIME will transform perceptions of the food of the former Soviet Union, and especially Siberia - the crossroads of Eastern European and Central Asian cuisine - with 100 inviting recipes adapted for modern tastes and Western kitchens, and evocative storytelling to explain and entice. Why not try the restorative Solyanka fish soup (a famous Russian hangover cure), savour the fragrant Chicken with prunes or treat yourself to some Napoleon cake.

    'Often we need distance and time, both to see things better and to feel closer to them. This is certainly true of the food of my home country, Russia - or Siberia, to be exact. When I think of Siberia, I hear the sound of fresh snow crunching beneath my feet. Today, whenever I crush sea salt flakes between my fingers as I cook, I think of that sound. In this book I feature recipes that are authentic to Siberia, classic Russian flavour combinations and my modern interpretations. You will find dishes from the pre-revolutionary era and the Soviet days, as well as contemporary approaches - revealing a cuisine that is vibrant, nourishing, exciting and above all relevant no matter the time or the place.' - Alissa Timoshkina

    'If anyone had to write a Russian cookbook now, it would have to be her, and her book will end up being a classic' - Olia Hercules, author of MAMUSHKA and KAUKASIS

    Title: SALT FAT ACID HEAT
    Author: NOSRAT SAMIN
    Format: HARD COVER
    Publishing status: ACTIVE TITLE

    In the tradition of The Joy of Cooking comes Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat, an ambitious new approach to cooking by a major new culinary voice. Chef and writer Samin Nosrat has taught everyone from professional chefs to middle school kids to author Michael Pollan to cook using her revolutionary, yet simple, philosophy. While cooking at Chez Panisse at the start of her career, Samin Nosrat had noticed that amid the chaos of the kitchen there were four key principles that her fellow chefs would always fall back on to make their food better: Salt, Fat, Acid and Heat.

    Master the use of these four elements-Salt, which enhances flavour; Fat, which delivers flavour and generates texture; Acid, which balances flavour; and Heat, which ultimately determines the texture of food-and anything you cook will be delicious. By explaining the hows and whys of good cooking, Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat will teach and inspire a new generation of cooks how to confidently make better decisions in the kitchen and cook delicious meals with any ingredients, anywhere, at any time.

    Echoing Samin's own journey from culinary novice to award-winning chef, Salt, Fat Acid, Heat immediately bridges the gap between home and professional kitchens. With charming narrative, illustrated walkthroughs, and a lighthearted approach to kitchen science, Samin demystifies the four elements of good cooking for everyone. Refer to the canon of 100 essential recipes - and dozens of variations - to put the lessons into practice and make bright, balanced vinaigrettes, perfectly caramelized roast vegetables, tender braised meats, and light, flaky pastry doughs.

    Featuring 150 illustrations and infographics that reveal an atlas to the world of flavour by renowned illustrator Wendy MacNaughton, Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat will be your compass in the kitchen. Destined to be a classic, it just might be the last cookbook you'll ever need.

    JACKSON ALEX

    Title: SARDINE : Simple Seasonal Provencal Cooking
    Author: JACKSON ALEX
    Format: HARD COVER
    Publishing status: August 2018 New Release

    This unique collection of recipes encapsulates the beauty and simplicity of Provencal French cooking. Taking influence from Italy as well as North Africa, acclaimed chef Alex Jackson's recipes are truly delightful.

    Through a love of French food and culture, Alex escapes the bustle of his east London based restaurant, cooking and reading recipe books about the dishes of Provence. At his restaurant, Sardine, Alex serves much adored feasts inspired by his reading and dreaming and, in this book, he reveals how you too can feast on simple, fresh dishes at home. The certain satisfaction in cooking a set menu in a restaurant translates wonderfully to the home cook who seeks to escape with our chef and to create their own bonne fete. It opens up many options - large format dishes, whole fish and joints of meat, more complicated processes, economies of scale, and above all, a feeling, somehow, that this is the way that eating is supposed to be. It's also an exercise in composition, a challenge to ensure that the menu reads beautifully, flows right, and eats even better, as well as an opportunity to shoehorn all the best ingredients of the moment into one evening's cooking.

    Alex has included a selection of recipes for each season, from Bouillabaisse and Autumnal Grand Aioli to Aligot Geant and an Easter feast, most of these menus revolve around a central celebratory dish, and so the joy for the home cook is in the knowledge that their evening will be no less a success, and certainly much less work, if they cut a course here or there. Ultimately the soul of the homecooked meal lies not only in a sense of achievement for the cook, but moreover in the satisfaction of bringing a basketful of ingredients, and a group of good friends, to the table. Recipes will run in seasonal order, with a foreword by Diana Henry. Sardine promises to reignite a love affair with French provincial cooking - its multitude of influences and its focus on seasonal eating and, ultimately, an attitude to food which centres around sharing and enjoying food.

    Any meal is only as good as the company with whom it's shared, which is why this book unites food and its local community.

    This cookbook is a celebration of shared homes and their most iconic dishes - the food designed to feed the crowd, without breaking the bank or spending hours in the kitchen. It is a book about community, warmth, love and the unique connection of a nurturing home, where shared meals are central to the environment. Plus, without getting preachy or "clean 'n green eating" about it, all the recipes in the book are vegetarian and vegan.

    The eight chapters are captured in different share houses throughout the inner, sunshiny, suburbs of Brisbane. Each chapter has a distinct theme, as dictated by the culinary skills of those living in the featured house: A breakfast spread menu; Hungover brunch; A leisurely long lunch; Eat it with your hands; Mexican-inspired feast; A Mediterranean dinner party; Pasta night; and Comfort food spread.

    Through its clean and bright photography - all taken by Clare's own friends and roommates - The Shared Table is simultaneously luxe and sincere. It's a warm and inviting cookbook that every share house needs on their communal bookshelf.

    Smith & Daughters: A Cookbook (That Happens to be Vegan) ignores convention in favor of plant-based creativity in the kitchen. Shannon Martinez and Mo Wyse set out to build a restaurant that’s fun and full of life with a rock and roll vibe, and where good food is served – that happens to be vegan. No shouting about saving the animals. Shannon comes from the perspective of a carnivore and combines science, innovation and whimsical methods to create dishes and flavors that aren’t the norm for vego/vegan food. She instead tries to replicate the tastes and textures of meat that is the opposite of bland, predictable vegan food.

    Across 7 chapters, including big plates, small plates, salads, sweets, dressings and drinks, Smith & Daughters offers 80+ delicious vegan recipes with a Spanish twist to recreate at home. From 'chorizo' and potato, Spanish 'meatballs' in a saffron almond sauce, chipotle cashew 'cheese', 'tuna' and green pea croquettes to doughnuts, avocado and corn icecream, the recipes give new inventive life to classics that will appeal to meat and vegetarian eaters alike.

    Sobo (Sophisticated Bohemian) started out in 2003 as a purple food truck in the parking lot behind a surf shop, way before food trucks were cool. Despite its remoteness, it attracted rave reviews from food media across North America, with the likes of Saveur magazine calling it: "perhaps the most exciting lunch stand in North America".
    The back of the staff's t-shirts read: "Quite possibly the second best thing you can do in a parking lot" -- and that same fun, authentic West Coast vibe weaves throughout the stories and recipes in this book.

    Sobo has since become a destination restaurant, having outgrown its food truck beginnings, with visitors making the pilgrimage to the west coast of Vancouver Island just to taste chef Lisa Ahier's cooking (which is, to use Tofino slang, simply killer). The restaurant's menu focuses on locally-sourced, seasonally-inspired ingredients from family-owned producers. The dishes are shaped by Lisa's Tex Mex and Southwestern culinary roots, and her experience gained across several US states, including her stint as executive chef of Cibolo Creek Ranch in Texas.

    Publishing status: September 2019 New Releas

    The definitive cookbook on all things sour, from kimchi to kefir, citrus to sourdough.

    Sour is the definitive book on this unique taste. From cheese to vinegar, throughout the centuries we have deliberately let – and even encouraged – food to go sour to enhance its flavour.

    Sour foods have never been more fashionable, with the spotlight falling on foodstuffs as disparate as Belgian sour beer and Korean kimchi. But what is it that makes sourness such an enticing, complex element of the eating experience? And what are the best ways to harness sour flavours in your own kitchen?

    Mark Diacono sets out to demystify the sour world, and explore why everyone's extolling the virtues of kombucha and fermenting for their digestive health. By grappling with gooseberries and turning his hand to sourdough, experimenting with ultra-cool shrub cocktails, and making his own yoghurt, keffir and pickles, Mark tells the story of what makes things sour, and offers recipes that maximise the transformative power of this amazing taste.
