Summary

In the twelfth River Cottage Handbook, John Wright explains how to home-brew and make your own tipples. 
 
What could possibly beat a cool pint of beer down the pub or a lazy glass of wine at your favourite bar? The answer is: home-brewed beer or your very own brand of wine.  With this, the twelfth in the River Cottage Handbook series, the inimitable John Wright shows exactly how easy it is to get started. You don't need masses of space to make alcohol at home, and if you follow the simple instructions, you won't be faced with exploding bottles in the cellar. But don't forget, it's all about experimentation and finding out what works for you. 
 
Booze is divided up by alcohol type, from beer, cider and wine to herbal spirits and fruit liqueurs. Each section starts with an introduction to the basic techniques, methods and other useful information, before giving recipes for delicious tipples like rhubarb wine, sparkling elderflower wine, mead, cherry plum wine, orange beer, lager, real ginger beer, sweet cider, zubrovka vodka, amber spirits, rose infusions, blackberry whiskey, pomegranate rum, chestnut liqueur, mulled cider and there's even a hangover cure thrown in for good measure. 
 
With an introduction from Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and full-colour photographs as well as illustrations, Booze is a home-brewer's book with a kick.

    Take one tent. Fill with 12 amateur bakers. Garnish with one venerable cookery writer, one blue-eyed bread-maker, and two comedy queens with a love of innuendo. And there you have the recipe for the most popular show of our times. 
     
    When The Great British Bake Off made its debut in August 2010, it had the makings of a modest hit. But nobody – not the programme-makers and certainly not those first contestants – could have predicted what was to come. Here was a show in which the biggest weekly drama was whether or not a sponge cake would sink in the middle. And oh, how we loved it. 
     
    Here is the ultimate Bake Off fan book: from bread lion to bin-gate; heart throbs to Twitter trolls; soggy bottoms to sticky buns. This is the celebration of Britain's most popular cookery contest.

    Nutritious, delicious, and easy-to-cook recipes for today’s busy and heavily-scheduled teens from “one of the finest young chefs ever” (Harry Connick, Jr.). 
     
    Remmi Smith, a teen chef who hosts two cooking shows—Culinary Kid and Cook Time with Remmi—and serves as a national Student Ambassador for a leading food services company, has written a cookbook encouraging teens to take up healthy cooking as a new pastime. 
     
    Through the colorful, easy-to-read, 220-page book, Remmi sets out to inspire teens to adopt healthy eating habits by introducing them to the glorious pastime of cooking. The book takes the reader on a culinary journey across the seven continents, highlighting a country and its top food items in each one. Each section features geographic descriptions, a full menu (from appetizer to dessert), fun facts, brain teasers, personal tips, and delicious photos of the recipes—making it a geography lesson, a cookbook, and a social studies class all in one. 
     
    What’s most evident in this book is Remmi’s passion for cooking. What’s most appealing is her genuine writing style and ability to relate to other teens. Remmi’s recipes include a lot of vegetables and she uses fruits to add natural sweetness while going light on spices to make the dishes more appealing to children and teens. 
     
    “I want to inspire teens to get in the kitchen and have some fun, cook healthy and enjoy life and the love of food,” Remmi says. “You can explore the world through food. Writing this book was a really big adventure for me and I hope it will be an adventure for everyone else.”

    Photos, anecdotes, and outdoor-cooking recipes celebrating the history of the U.S. Forest Service. Dedicated protectors of our national forests and grasslands, Forest Service agents live much of their lives outdoors, and that includes mealtimes. In decades past, rangers’ wives prepared meals with limited resources as they accompanied their husbands in the field, often supplementing cooking with k-rations cooked over an open fire. In rustic and remote locations, delicious, time-tested creations were prepared and served, including Dutch Oven Beer Bread, Parmesan Mashed Potatoes, Pioneer Night Stew, and Creamy Pumpkin Pie.   Here, the National Museum of Forest Service History presents a unique cookbook that celebrates decades of camp cooking by countless Forest Service agents in the field. Featuring legendary recipes for Dutch oven meals, open-fire dishes, and other tasty outdoor specialties used daily in the early days of the Forest Service, Camp Cooking also includes photos and anecdotes that tell the whole history of these brave and hardy individuals.

This book is a must-have for home cooks who love the time spent gathered around the table with friends, family, and delicious meals.   “This book shares flavorful recipes that are backed by years of solid testing and include straightforward nutrition notes. I’ll refer to this cookbook for years to come.” —Antonia Allegra, founder of The Symposium for Professional Food Writers
