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.

    Lose Weight Rapidly by Drinking Red Wine and Eating Chocolate with the Help of Sirtfood Diet! 
      
    Not every diet has to leave you starving for days. The Sirtfood diet will have you losing those extra pounds in no time, while still getting to eat the foods you love. Keep reading to find out more about this amazing diet! 
    Dieting was always considered to be a mission impossible for many people because going on a diet means you can't eat the food you love. That is why one in five dieters don't make it through the first month of dieting. Also, ¼ of all dieters make it to three months but the majority of them end up gaining more weight than they've lost in the following few years. So, even if you go on a diet, chances are you might not succeed. Why? Well because many dieting methods are not adequate and do not have lasting results. 
      
    That is where the Sirtfood diet jumps in. This diet is based on eating wonder foods called sirtfoods, that are rich in nutrients such as green tea, apples, citrus fruits, but also red wine and dark chocolate. These sirtfoods activate proteins in your body called sirtuins that kick-start your metabolism and help you lose weight quickly and efficiently. 
      
    Starting a diet is never an easy task. Many people dream of losing weight in a healthy way but are not ready to make big changes in terms of the food they're used to eat. Also, some fear that they will fail quickly, so they don't even dare to start. This book will teach you everything you should know about the Sirtfood diet and guide you every step of the way. 
      
    Here's what you'll discover inside this book: 
     Sirtfood Diet 101: knowing the basics of the Sirtfood diet will make your diet more successful. Learn what is the Sirtfood diet, what are sirtuins, and what makes them so powerful.Sirtfood Diet Do's and Don'ts: discover which foods are you allowed to eat and which not as well as how can you combine these good foods with the regular food you are used to eating.Expert Tips for Successful Dieting: read very useful tips written by nutritionists that will help you kick-start your diet, stick with it, and maintain the weight when your diet is over.Sirtfood Cookbook: delicious recipes that will help you plan your meals in advance.

    Victorian Catsup: Receipts of...

    The book you now hold in your hands is nothing new, only forgotten by most.  
     
    It is, however, how Chef Daniel, the Victorian Chef, recovered many missing segments of his knowledge after having a stroke in 2012. At that time, he had a forty-seat restaurant where he was recreating dishes from the Victorian Era. He was also developing his signature catsups to serve with each receipt that he placed on the menu. 
     
    After the stroke, he was forced to give up on his dream for the time being and start the long journey of rehabilitation of both body and mind. When Chef Daniel was able to stand in front of a stove again, he went back to what he knew best, making small batch catsup that he took to local fairs and sold so that he could make more.  
     
    This book is a big part of what kept Chef Daniel going each day. Now he wants to share that with others by contributing ninety percent of his proceeds to the Blood Banks that kept him alive by furnishing over twenty units to him when he was in need.
