New food and drink titles coming out in April and May 2012
Okay, you lucky people! Did you know that we have a great new food and drink title coming out every week from mid-April to the end of May...no?
Well, we've got new books from Reza Mahammad, Peggy Porschen, San Stern, Stevie Parle and Alice Hart; first time offerings from Matt Walls and Nathan Outlaw and the return of the Two Greedy Italians...
Stevie Parle’s Dock Kitchen Cookbook - published 12.04.12.
The opposite of the usual ‘chefy’ restaurant fare, Stevie serves an eclectic mix of dishes that in their countries of origin would all be described as home cooking. Ranging from Mexico to Morocco, from Catalonia to Kerala, taking in the Mediterranean and the Middle East, here are simple, wholesome and perfectly balanced recipes for dishes that will warm the heart in winter and cool the palate in summer. Dishes are economical to make while equally being new and exciting in taste. £25, hardback.
Two Greedy Italians Eat Italy - Antonio Carluccio & Gennaro Contaldo - published 19.04.12
Nowhere is food as much a part of everyday life as Italy - a country whose unique topography has resulted in distinct regional differences that are vibrantly alive and passionately celebrated. Following the success of Two Greedy Italians, Antonio Carluccio and Gennaro Contaldo embark on a journey to explore Italy’s distinct and varied terrains, and to find out how these have shaped the produce and, in turn, the peoples and their traditions. £20, hardback.
Friends at My Table - Alice Hart. Published 26.04.12
Alice Hart has perfected the art of feeding crowds, and in her new book she takes the stress out of entertaining, showing you not only how to serve people memorable meals, but also how to host all sorts of gatherings in a relaxed and convivial way. From what kitchen kit you’ll need to take to a music festival, how to multiply up the number of servings, or how to get around a shortage of cutlery or plates, the book contains all you need to know about the practical side of making large numbers of people feel comfortable and well fed. An added bonus are Alice’s fabulously whimsical ideas for how to entertain guests. £18.99, hardback.
Sam Stern’s Virgin to Veteran - How to Get Cooking with Confidence. Published 03.05.12
From mastering the basics to insider tips and techniques, this book will teach you everything you need to become a confident cook. From fast food to slow, food to go or eat in, healthy to greedy, there’s something in the over 100 Masterclass recipes featured to match every mood, budget and lifestyle. Core dishes are accompanied with advice on saving cash, time, and delicious and wide-ranging variations that will expand your cooking repertoire in the blink of an eye – if the exotic Hot Mixed Mushroom Bruschetta is not to your taste, you can opt for the more homely topping of Broad Bean and Wensleydale instead. If a formal dinner isn’t your style, convert your refined fillet steak into a fast and fabulous BBQ treat. The possibilities are endless. £20, hardback.
Nathan Outlaw’s British Seafood - Nathan Outlaw. Published 10.05.12
In Modern British Seafood Nathan shares the secrets of his unique approach and provides a tempting collection of original recipes. Beginning with a guide to sourcing and buying, followed by a step-by-step guide to preparing all types of fish and shellfish, he then explains cooking techniques, showing how to pan-fry, grill, bake, steam, barbecue and deep-fry fish to perfection, avoiding the pitfalls of overcooking. £25, hardback.

Fed up with mediocre wine but not sure how to go about spotting the diamond bottles from the dross? Fear not! With Drink Me!, part of Quadrille’s exciting New Voices in Food series, as your guide you will soon be extracting the maximum pleasure from every mouthful. In this exciting new book, vintner and blogger Matt Walls points you towards the right bottle for every occasion, revealing the main different types of wine, the wine styles within each type and the brands or producers that are the most reliable. Buying the best bottles isn’t the only thing you need to know; getting the most out of the wine once you’ve bought it is just as important. £12.99, paperback

Reza’s Indian Spice by Reza Mahammad. Published 31.05.12.
Reza Mahammad’s passion and unstoppable enthusiasm for Indian flavours are irresistible. The charming, flamboyant TV chef and owner of the Star of India restaurant in Kensington, London (Hugh Grant’s favourite restaurant), now brings his flair for evolving the tastes of India to a new book.
Brought up in London, the scion of a family of Indian restaurateurs, educated in India, and with a home in France, Reza is a true global citizen. His unique culinary perspective means he combines familiar western ingredients with Indian flavours to stunning effect, reinventing French, Persian, American and British recipes, though there is also a chapter, of course, of classic curries. £17.99, hardback.
