Summary

Fuchsia Dunlop trained as a chef at China's leading cooking school and is internationally renowned for her delicious recipes and brilliant writing about Chinese food. Every Grain of Rice is inspired by the healthy and vibrant home cooking of southern China, in which meat and fish are enjoyed in moderation, but vegetables play the starring role. 
 
Try your hand at blanched choy sum with sizzling oil, Hangzhou broad beans with ham, pock-marked old woman's beancurd or steamed chicken with shiitake mushrooms, or, if you've ever in need of a quick fix, Fuchsia's emergency late-night noodles.  
 
Many of the recipes require few ingredients and are startlingly easy to make. The book includes a comprehensive introduction to the key seasonings and techniques of the Chinese kitchen, as well as the 'magic ingredients' that can transform modest vegetarian ingredients into wonderful delicacies. 
 
With stunning photography and clear instructions, this is an essential volume for beginners and connoisseurs alike.

    Get your oolong on! From morning eats to evening sweets, Steeped infuses your day with the flavors and fragrances of tea. Romance your oat porridge with rooibos, jazz up your brussel sprouts with jasmine, charge your horchata with masala chai! Annelies Zijderveld’s deliciously inventive tea-steeped recipes include:Matcha Chia Pudding ParfaitsEarl Grey Soba Noodle SaladGreen Tea Coconut RiceChamomile Buttermilk Pudding with Caramelized BananaEarl Grey Poached Pears with Masala Chai Caramel SauceThis beautiful book will inspire you to pull out your favorite teas, fire up the stove, and get steeping! EDITORIAL REVIEW: A Los Angeles Times Favorite New Cookbook of the Year: "Think about all the coffee-infused foods out there (cakes, ice creams, liquors and BBQ spice rubs, to just name a few). Zijderveld makes a powerful argument that we're missing out when we fail to similarly incorporate tea as a spice into our everyday routines. The book is part tea primer but also intrepid tea explorer, with recipes such as strawberry camomile jam, Moroccan mint-flavored quiche, a spinach salad featuring pecans encrusted with a masala chai maple syrup, and hurricane popcorn with Dragon Well tea furikake. (It's like salty-sweet kettle corn, but with tea.) This book would make a great gift for both tea newcomers and those who can rhapsodize about the smoky complexities of a Lapsang souchong."

    Pint to Pint - A Crawl Around...

    For the dedicated pub-goer and the armchair drinker, here is an enticing selection of ‘proper’ pubs to gladden the heart and slake the thirst. 
    
    All of these pubs get the basics right: they focus on the beer (though the food and wine may also be excellent) and on conversation rather than piped music. They may have a roaring fire in winter and a pleasant beer garden in summer. You can probably bring your dog. Above all, they have a notable character that raises them above the bland corporate pubs that blight the land.
    It can be hard to say exactly why – but you just know a good pub the moment you enter. 
    
    
    Trusted Telegraph reviewers have made their selection for you, based on highly personal but well-informed criteria, resulting in a nationwide pub crawl like no other.
    This is the perfect book for anyone who considers a good pub to be a British birthright.
