Summary

'Complete novice or know-all, you'll love this stunning book. An essential boater's companion, it will certainly have a place on my boat on the Amalfi coast' 
 
Salvatore Calabrese, legendary bartender 
 
A boozy book for boaters, The Boat Drinks Book serves up an expert look at the drinking culture in key sailing spots around the world. The book is split into five regions: Atlantic, Med, Baltic, Pacific, and Caribbean, and author Fiona Sims encourages us to explore each region and discover what locals like to drink, how it's made, where to go to drink it, and what is best to eat with it. In doing so she uncovers distilleries, breweries and wineries all within a short taxi ride of the harbour and shows us how to make the most of traditional markets.  
 
As well as giving us the insider knowledge on fabulous locations worldwide, The Boat Drinks Book gets in on the making too. Cocktail and drink recipes inspire us to whip up something delicious – using local liqueurs, wines, spirits and produce – to sip on deck at the end of a long day's cruising or exploring. There's even a scattering of recipes for ultimate boat nibbles, inspired by each region, from tapenade to salsa to stuffed piquillo peppers. 
 
So whether you're a seasoned sailor or an armchair aperitif enthusiast, grab a copy of The Boat Drinks Book and let expert food and wine writer Fiona Sims quench your thirst. Your mission: to discover and enjoy.

    Bestselling author, TV host, and chef Anthony Bourdain reveals the hearty, delicious recipes of Les Halles, the classic New York City French bistro where he got his start.   
     
    Before stunning the world with his bestselling Kitchen Confidential, Anthony Bourdain, host of the celebrated TV shows Parts Unknown and No Reservations, spent years serving some of the best French brasserie food in New York. With its no-nonsense, down-to-earth atmosphere, Les Halles matched Bourdain's style perfectly: a restaurant where you can dress down, talk loudly, drink a little too much wine, and have a good time with friends. Now, Bourdain brings you his Les Halles Cookbook, a cookbook like no other: candid, funny, audacious, full of his signature charm and bravado.  
     
    Bourdain teaches you everything you need to know to prepare classic French bistro fare. While you're being guided, in simple steps, through recipes like roasted veal short ribs and steak frites, escargots aux noix and foie gras au pruneaux, you'll feel like he's in the kitchen beside you-reeling off a few insults when you've scorched the sauce, and then patting you on the back for finally getting the steak tartare right.  
     
    As practical as it is entertaining, Anthony Bourdain's Les Halles Cookbook is a can't-miss treat for cookbook lovers, aspiring chefs, and Bourdain fans everywhere.

    On the Menu - The world's...

    In the must-anticipated companion volume to his first book, The Art of the Restauranteur, restaurant critic Nicholas Lander rejoices in the history, design and evolution of the world’s favourite piece of paper: the menu. 
    On the Menu is a stunning collection of menus, from those at the cutting edge of contemporary culinary innovation, like El Bulli and Noma, to those that are relics from another time: a 1970s menu from L’Escargot at a time when all main courses cost less than one pound; the last menu from The French House Dining Room before Fergus Henderson departed for St John; a Christmas feast of zoo animals served during the Siege of Paris in 1870; and three of the world’s original restaurant menus—now hanging proudly in London’s Le Gavroche. 
    Throughout, Lander examines the principles of menu design and layout; the different rules that govern separate menus for breakfast, afternoon tea and dessert; the evolution of wine and cocktail lists; and how menus can act as records of the past. 
    He takes us behind the scenes at Babbo, Mario Batali’s famous New York restaurant, as the staff are briefed on the evening’s menu, and he reveals insights from interviews with Michael Anthony, Heston Blumenthal, Massimo Bottura, René Redzepi, Ruth Rogers and many more of the most renowned, contemporary chefs of our time, who explain how they decide what to serve and what inspires them to create and design their menus. 
    These are truly pages to drool over.
