    Publishing status: ACTIVE TITLE

    Chocolate has beguiled us for millennia. From the spiced drinks sipped by the elite in ancient Mesoamerica to the artisan bars spiked with intriguing flavours we devour today, chocolate has always had a magical pull on our senses. Exotic, indulgent, hedonistic and sensual, its power over us somehow exceeds the sum of its parts.

    This ground-breaking exploration of chocolate, by award-winning writer and lifelong cocoa enthusiast Sue Quinn, will intrigue, inspire, surprise and fascinate you in equal measure. In these pages is a wealth of cultural, historical and culinary information about the story of chocolate through the ages and across the world, illustrated with vintage packaging, iconic adverts and stunning illustrations. Interspersed throughout the book are 80 tantalising sweet and savoury recipes, such as Salted Caramel and Lime Chocolate Sauce; Triple Chocolate and Liquorice Cake with Treacle Syrup; Spelt, Cranberry and Cocoa Nib Crackers; and Sticky Slow-Roasted Beef Short Ribs with Cocoa and Maple.

    Community is all about sharing good food, giving you endless ideas on delicious salads to serve up for your family, friends and neighbours. These simple, sustainable and healthy recipes feature fresh, seasonal produce and inject colour, life and flair into that most modest of everyday meals: the salad. Rather than being simply sides, Community's salads are meals in their own right, giving vegetables, legumes, herbs and nuts their moment to shine.

    The recipes in Community are inspired by author Hetty McKinnon's community kitchen, Arthur Street Kitchen, where Hetty single-handedly makes and delivers homemade salads to residents in Surry Hills, Sydney, on Thursday and Friday every week. All by bike! Hetty's salads use only the freshest produce, sourced locally wherever possible. Inspired first and foremost by the seasons, Hetty also takes cues from what she sees, smells and experiences from the world around her. At the heart of every dish is a core vegetable, around which a thoughtful culinary story is built, resulting in honest, inventive and hearty salads that deliver big, punchy flavours.

    This beautifully photographed book celebrates all that is Corsican – the people, the geography and, most importantly, the food. And with around 80 incredible Corsican recipes designed to be prepared in the home kitchen, you’ll be transported to the island in no time.

    Relatively unexplored by visitors from outside Europe (although it attracts an estimated 3 million from France annually), Corsica is a Mediterranean island steeped in a rich food culture. With incredible geography – from the mountains to the plains and the stunning coastline – Corsica has long been a well-loved idyll for those in the know. It is also home to a unique cuisine – blending the best of French and Italian food – that respects its home-grown produce: citrus fruits, grapes, chestnuts, cheese, herbs, fish, seafood and charcuterie.

    But Corsica is more than a collection of recipes, as the book also brings together portraits of those who live and work there, and those instrumental in maintaining Corsica’s rich food culture.
