Summary

'Life Kitchen is a celebration of food' Lauren, Sunderland 
'The recipes are just really simple, really easy and delicious' Carolyn, Newcastle 
'His book is better than a bunch of flowers because it's going to last forever' Gillian, Sunderland 
 
  
Ryan Riley was just eighteen years old when his mum, Krista, was diagnosed with cancer. He saw first-hand the effect of her treatment but one of the most difficult things he experienced was seeing her lose her ability to enjoy food.   
  
Two years after her diagnosis, Ryan's mother died from her illness. 
  
In a bid to discover whether there was a way to bring back the pleasure of food, Ryan created Life Kitchen in his mum's memory. It offers free classes to anyone affected by cancer treatment to cook recipes that are designed specifically to overpower the dulling effect of chemotherapy on the taste buds. 
  
In Life Kitchen, Ryan shares recipes for dishes that are quick, easy, and unbelievably delicious, whether you are going through cancer treatment or not. With ingenious combinations of ingredients, often using the fifth taste, umami, to heighten and amplify the flavours, this book is bursting with recipes that will reignite the joy of taste and flavour. 
  
Recipes include: 
Carbonara with peas & mint 
Parmesan cod with salt & vinegar cucumber 
Roasted harissa salmon with fennel salad 
Miso white chocolate with frozen berries 
  
With an introduction from UCL's taste and flavour expert Professor Barry Smith, this inspiring cookbook focusses on the simple, life-enriching pleasure of eating, for everyone living with cancer and their friends and family too. 
  
'This book is a life changer: this is not gush, but a statement of fact' Nigella Lawson

    ”In an engaging series of memoir essays” the author traverses countries and friendships, “examining the relationship between culture and food" (Library Journal).   What do we learn from eating? About ourselves? Others? In this unique memoir of a life shaped by the pleasures of the table, Doris Friedensohn uses eating as an occasion for inquiry. Munching on quesadillas and kimchi in her suburban New Jersey neighborhood, she reflects on her exploration of food over fifty years and across four continents.   Relishing couscous in Tunisia and khachapuri in the Republic of Georgia, she explores the ways strangers come together and maintain their differences through food. As a young woman, Friedensohn was determined not to be a provincial American. Chinese, French, Mexican, and Mediterranean cuisines beckoned to her like mysterious suitors, and each rendezvous with an unfamiliar food was a celebration of cosmopolitan living.   Friedensohn's memories range from Thanksgiving at a Middle Eastern restaurant to the taste of fried grasshoppers in Oaxaca. Her wry dramas of the dining room, restaurant, market, and kitchen ripple with tensions—political, religious, psychological, and spiritual. Eating as I Go is one woman's distinctive mélange of memoir, traveler's tale, and cultural commentary.

    You're on a Keto diet and you don't want to give up on bread?Are you wondering if there is bread poor of carbohydrates?The answer will be found in this audio-cookbook, listen on. 
    Today, it’s not just people suffering from health disorders who pursue this approach, but healthy people with diet concerns also make use of this diet. The most challenging aspect of this diet plan is desiring baked goods and desserts while restricting carb intake. We all know that all desserts and baked goods are composed of sugars, flours, and other high-carb ingredients. In order to enjoy those same flavors, we need keto-friendly substitutes. This cookbook not only provides an all-inclusive guide to find such substitutes but also brings you the best recipes to make good use of in everyday life.  
    Keto bread is great. Fact. However, from what I’ve seen, it’s not much of a big deal in the keto industry now. And that’s a great shame as some of the bread recipes you can make are far tastier and more exciting than carb-bread. Traditional bread is awful. Carb content in your typical loaf of bread is incredibly high, which is possibly the worst food you can eat when following a ketogenic diet. With our keto-friendly bread recipes, each one of them is made up of less than 10 grams of carbs, ensuring that you stay in ketosis.  
    Keto bread can be enjoyed with a huge variety of toppings and used as a side dish and even as an appetite suppressing snack! With a huge variety of recipes in this audiobook, you’ll likely find your ‘go to’ favorites and more than likely enjoy each and every recipe you try. Inside this audio-cookbook you will not only discover your favorite bread recipes, but also a whole host of exciting recipes you may have never even heard of before!

    From Rowan Jacobsen, America's go-to expert, the author of the trailblazing A Geography of Oysters, comes the ultimate oyster guide--a gorgeous, full-color, must-have book. 
     
    A decade ago, Rowan Jacobsen wrote a book called A Geography of Oysters that celebrated the romance of oysters, the primal rush of slurping a raw denizen of the sea, and the mysteries of molluscan terroir. The book struck a chord, and American oyster culture has been on a gravity-defying trajectory ever since.  
     
    With lavish four-color photos throughout by renowned photographer David Malosh, The Essential Oyster is the definitive book for oyster-lovers everywhere, featuring stunning portraits, tasting notes, and backstories of all the top oysters, as well as recipes from America's top oyster chefs and a guide to the best oyster bars. Spotlighting more than a hundred of North America's greatest oysters--the unique, the historically significant, the flat-out yummiest--The Essential Oyster introduces the oyster culture and history of every region of North America, as well as overseas. There is no coastline from British Columbia to Baja, from New Iberia to New Brunswick, that isn't producing great oysters. For the most part, these are deeper cupped, stronger shelled, finer flavored, and more stylish than their predecessors. Some have colorful stories to tell. Some have quirks. All have character. The Essential Oyster will help you find the best, and help you to cherish them better. That is what's captured--and celebrated--in these pages.
