Summary

In the first of the River Cottage Handbook series, mycologist John Wright uncovers the secret habits and habitats of Britain's thriving mushrooms - and the team at River Cottage explain how to cook them to perfection. 
 
In the first of the River Cottage Handbook series, mycologist John Wright explains the ins and outs of collecting, including relevant UK laws, conservation notes, practical tips and identification techniques. He takes us through the 72 species we are most likely to come across during forays in Britain's forests and clearings: old friends the Chanterelle and Cep, as well as a whole colourful host of more unfamiliar names - edible species including the Velvet Shank, the Horn of Plenty, the Amethyst Deceiver, the Giant Puffball and the Chicken in the Woods, and poisonous types such as the Sickener, the Death Cap and the Destroying Angel. 
 
The handbook is completed by more than 30 simple and delicious mushroom recipes from the River Cottage team. With colour photographs throughout, line drawings, a user-friendly Key and an introduction by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, the River Cottage Mushroom Handbook is a comprehensive and collectable guide, destined to be an indispensable household reference.

    At the age of eleven, the daughter of a Sicilian sharecropper, Maria Grammatico, entered the San Carlo Institute in the mountaintop town of Erice, an orphanage run by nuns who were famous throughout Sicily for their almond pastries, but who were less adept at dealing with young girls. After ten years of hard work and harsh discipline, Maria emerged with the secrets of the nuns’ pastries hidden inside her head.   This is the story of her carefree country childhood—her Dickensian life in the orphanage with no heat, no running water, and only wood-burning ovens—and her triumphs as an entrepreneur and a world-famous pastry chef.  Bitter Almonds includes 46 of the recipes that she ‘stole’ from the nuns, committed to writing for the first time in these pages.

    More than just typical burger-joint fare or sloppy, grease-soaked pizzas, American recipes are as varied and full of personality as our citizens. In Coast to Coast Cookery, editor Marian Tracy showcases a diverse collection of regional American recipes. From Indiana Steamed Persimmon Pudding to Hawaiian Curry, Ohio Maple Dumplings, and Pennsylvanian Fishhouse Punch (famously used in toasts to George Washington's memory), these midcentury recipes marry the many different cultural backgrounds that compose America. Regular staples such as apple pie and casseroles make an appearance alongside more exotic finds such as Cannibal Appetizers from Illinois or Watermelon Rind Pickle from Georgia. Older recipes like Florida Roast Opossum or Pennsylvania Snapper Stew are intermingled with more recent ones, and stories such as how hush puppies earned their names or what kind of woman inspired the "Anna, damn her" bread are interspersed throughout the collection. A mouth-watering foray into the world of American culinary flair, Coast to Coast Cookery delivers unique recipes from more than 40 American states and regions.

    Craig and Shaun McAnuff are bringing Da'Flava from the Caribbean to your kitchen! 
      
    We're Craig and Shaun, two brothers from South London, but with Jamaica in our hearts and souls. Our Mum and Nanny taught us to cook, and Original Flava is all about meals that are vibrant, lively, exciting, and full of the influences from different cultures that make the Caribbean island of Jamaica so wonderful. That's why we've travelled to Jamaica to bring you its authentic and fresh FLAVAs! 
      
    Our motto is EAT: we make our recipes Easy, Accessible and Tasty. We want to give you platefuls that taste like grandma's food so there are recipes for classics like Ackee 'n' Saltfish and Curry goat, and Caribbean favourites from home such as Garlic butter lobster and Trini doubles. We also like to twist it up a likkle to give dishes our modern spin, so you can find recipes for Honey roasted jerk-spiced salmon, Plantain beanburgers and Banana fritter cheesecake. 
      
    The most important thing, we think, is the togetherness food brings­ – the same happiness we have with our family. We want to share this joy: a testament to the culture of Jamaica, the fun, fantastic FLAVAs, and the stories behind the food, straight from the people of Jamaica. So, get your ingredients, turn on a likkle music, and let's get cooking!
