Summary

“As a child we had nothing and the value of every meal, therefore, was so important to us – this has shaped my love and perspective on food.” 
  
Born in a small village in the south of Vietnam, Thuy was surrounded by food and she grew up amidst livestock and fresh produce, with a wonderful variety of fruits, morning markets with freshly picked vegetables and the smells of traditional street food. It's these memories that are the foundation of her food philosophy and culinary creations, and her landmark London restaurant, The Little Viet Kitchen, brings this true taste of Vietnamese cuisine to Islington. It is here that Thuy, along with her husband Dave, has created a dining experience combining the best of restaurateur precision and flair with the comforts of the home kitchen.  
  
Embracing all elements of Vietnamese cuisine, Thuy's food enhances and showcases the natural textures and flavours of the organic ingredients she uses. Having moved to the UK aged seven, Thuy has a distinctive approach to Vietnamese cooking in the West, with an authentic core knowledge of Vietnamese culture and a deft understanding of the London restaurant and foodie scene, all of which is brought to life in these pages.  
  
Offering a fresh approach and insight into how to make the best of classic dishes and Vietnamese family favourites, it is Thuy's expertise and memories that are the heart of each and every recipe. This book delves into Thuy's journey from Vietnam to England, celebrating her love of Vietnamese cooking, culture and way of life and tantalizing the reader's tastebuds alongside their imaginations, turning everyone's kitchen into a Little Viet Kitchen. 
 
Beautiful photography by the brilliant David Loftus accompanies each recipe, all styled by Thuy herself.

    Identifying and Harvesting Edible and Medicinal Plants in Wild (and Not So Wild) Places shows readers how to find and prepare more than five hundred different plants for nutrition and better health. It includes information on common plants such as mullein (a tea made from the leaves and flowers suppresses a cough), stinging nettle (steam the leaves and you have a tasty dish rich in iron), cattail (cooked stalks taste similar to corn and are rich in protein), and wild apricots (an infusion made with the leaves is good for stomach aches and digestive disorders).  
    More than 260 detailed line drawings help readers identify a wide range of plants -- many of which are suited for cooking by following the more than thirty recipes included in this book. There are literally hundreds of plants readily available underfoot waiting to be harvested and used either as food or as a potential therapeutic. This book is both a field guide to nature's bounty and a source of intriguing information about the plants that surround us.

    Far too many women struggle to get pregnant and conceive a child naturally. This generally drives most people to visit a doctor or specialist to find out why they have so much difficulty conceiving and giving birth to healthy, happy babies. In most cases, they're given a diagnosis of infertility. Unfortunately, there are many different reasons for infertility, so this doesn't always help. It's known that ovarian cysts, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) and endometriosis can affect your fertility rate, as can a low sperm count in men. Some people are affected by other hormonal issues or more complicated problems, such as blocked or obstructed fallopian tubes. Even with all the advances made by medical science, there still remains a possibility that doctors simply can't find a cause for some peoples' infertility problems. Yet, what most people forget is that traditional, natural remedies often have a far greater success rate than expensive, often painful medical treatments. Despite a higher success rate, many women still choose to ignore natural treatments and solutions that really could prepare their bodies to conceive naturally, even after being told that they are infertile by a medical specialist. What's more, many of the medical treatments, surgeries and pharmaceutical drugs for infertility don't actually treat the base cause of the problem. Instead, they treat the symptom and attempt to remove it that way. This can sometimes cause more problems than you started with. This Book will look at some reasons for infertility and how using a natural, holistic approach to reversing your infertility problems can greatly improve your chances of conceiving a child of your own without surgery and without drug
