Summary

From tea guru Sebastian Beckwith and New York Times bestsellers Caroline Paul and Wendy MacNaughton comes the essential guide to exploring and enjoying the vast world of tea. 
  
Tea, the most popular beverage in the world after water, has brought nations to war, defined cultures, bankrupted coffers, and toppled kings. And yet in many ways this fragrantly comforting and storied brew remains elusive, even to its devotees. As down-to-earth yet stylishly refined as the drink itself, A Little Tea Book submerges readers into tea, exploring its varieties, subtleties, and pleasures right down to the process of selecting and brewing the perfect cup.  
  
From orange pekoe to pu-erh, tea expert Sebastian Beckwith provides surprising tips, fun facts, and flavorful recipes to launch dabblers and connoisseurs alike on a journey of taste and appreciation. Along with writer and fellow tea-enthusiast Caroline Paul, Beckwith walks us through the cultural and political history of the elixir that has touched every corner of the world. Featuring featuring charming, colorful charts, graphs, and illustrations by bestselling illustrator Wendy MacNaughton and Beckwith's sumptuous photographs, A Little Tea Book is a friendly, handsome, and illuminating primer with a dash of sass and sophistication. Cheers!

    From food writer and historian Angela Clutton comes The Vinegar Cupboard, demonstrating the many great ways vinegars can be used to balance and enhance flavours, and enable modern cooks to make the most of this ancient ingredient. There aren't too many ingredients which manage to bring flavour and adaptability to recipes and are actively good for you, but vinegar manages it, and this must-have new book looks at how they have woven their way through culinary and medical history for thousands of years, and highlight the ways we can all benefit from vinegar in our diet.  
     
    There is a growing interest in vinegars and a recognition of the role acidity plays in cooking, and within these page, Angela Clutton shows how much can be achieved using just red or white wine vinegar in your cooking, as well as exploring the vast array of vinegars available. The range of vinegars on the market are expanding rapidly, and you can easily find fruit, herb, sherry, cider, malt, rice, balsamic and many types of red and white wine vinegars (from rioja through to champagne) on your supermarket shelves. The Vinegar Cupboard encourages cooks to have an arsenal of as many varieties of vinegars as they can fit in their kitchen; while we don't expect everyone to have a vinegar cupboard, we'd like to think this book will encourage a vinegar shelf at least! 
     
    Info-graphics and flavour wheels enhance the recipes, ensuring this is a usable and accessible book for all home cooks.

    There is no time for boredom at the restaurant Tickets, where engagement and good company are the order of the day. Indeed, fun has been the key ingredient in the restaurant’s cuisine since Albert Adrià opened its doors in 2011 with the Iglesias brothers, Pedro, Borja and Juan Carlos. It has become a benchmark for Barcelona’s restaurant scene ever since and its recipes have clearly evolved, though without losing any of their freshness or magic. Today the dishes at Tickets have fully transcended the concept of the tapa. So, this is not a tapas book!Albert Adrià invites us once again to walk through the doors of Tickets, where diners become actors in a film, performers in a vaudeville variety show or in a chorus line. Strawberry tree with elderflower and kimchi, Porex with Kalix caviar, Prawns in frozen salt, Saffron sponge with bread soup, Cannibal chicken with cassava bone and the oyster dishes, like Grilled oyster with black chanterelle tea, are just a sample of the nearly 100 recipes disclosed in this book.
