A delightfully wacky, delicious, irresistible and witty collection of British classics with a twist and a turn, all based around the premise that food should fun for all and that flavour is the key to having a great time at the table. Cow Pie – re-named and re-worked as Reindeer Pie at Christmas with Reindeer horns poking out through the pastry crust in place of the usual Desperate Dan cow horns – sits alongside retro favourites such as Chicken Kiev (Turkey Kiev at Christmas) and a wealth of wittily conceived, much-loved British stand-bys, beautifully realised through great photography that pushes the boundaries of expectation. Modern British Food is intended to be the ultimate fun cookery book, great to give and great to receive. A cookery book to make you smile and to make you hungry.
Since his New York Times op-ed column debuted in 2011, Mark Bittman has emerged as one of our most impassioned and opinionated observers of the food landscape. The Times’ only dedicated opinion columnist covering the food beat, Bittman routinely makes readers think twice about how the food we eat is produced, distributed, and cooked, and shines a bright light on the profound impact that diet—both good and bad—can have on our health and that of the planet. In A Bone to Pick, Mark’s most memorable and thought-provoking columns are compiled into a single volume for the first time. As abundant and safe as the American food supply appears to be, the state of our health reveals the presence of staggering deficiencies in both the system that produces food and the forces that regulate it. Bittman leaves no issue unexamined; agricultural practices, government legislation, fad diets, and corporate greed all come under scrutiny and show that the issues governing what ends up in our market basket and on our tables are both complex and often deliberately confusing. Unabashedly opinionated and invariably thought provoking, Bittman’s columns have helped readers decipher arcane policy, unpack scientific studies, and deflate affronts to common sense when it comes to determining what “eating well” truly means. As urgent as the situation is, Mark contends that we can be optimistic about the future of our food and its impact on our health, as slow-food movements, better school-lunch programs, and even “healthy fast food” become part of the norm. At once inspiring, enraging, and enlightening, A Bone to Pick is an essential resource for every reader eager to understand not only the complexities inherent in the American food system, but also the many opportunities that exist to improve it.

Evocative photographs—of finished dishes, gorgeous local foodstuffs, and the people who produce the food that gives so much pleasure—round out this personal, passionate, enlightening, and utterly delicious cookbook.
Has cooking ever saved a life? It definitely rescued Steve Martorano from the streets of South Philadelphia, and an almost certain end in jail … or worse. Raised on Gram’s meatballs and Mom’s macaroni, Martorano learned at an early age that full-flavored food made with loving hands was the only food worth eating. And, by the way, that’s macaroni and gravy, not pasta and sauce, cuz. That’s just the way it is in Martorano’s world. When it seemed like the only future for a kid from the neighborhood was to drive a truck or join the mob, it was this passion for food that inspired Martorano to reach for more and start his first “restaurant”—selling homemade sandwiches he prepared in his mother’s basement. These sandwiches, served up with a side of Steve’s personality, turned out to be the recipe for success and started Martorano in the restaurant business. Eighteen years after opening the incredibly popular Cafe Martorano in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Martorano now runs a total of four successful restaurants in Florida and Las Vegas, and has built a devoted and ever-growing clientele—including a bevy of celebrities—who are more than willing to wait hours for a table. In this personal, funny, delectable cookbook, the self-proclaimed “heavyweight champ of Italian-American cooking” offers us a wide range of the dishes that have made his restaurants so popular. Among the book’s seventy-eight recipes, you’ll find tried-and-true favorites like Martorano Meatballs, Fresh Mozzarella, Stuffed Hot Peppers, and Fried Galamad Red (known as calamari outside Philly), as well as newer fare like Grilled Octopus, Rice Balls, and Sunday Pork Gravy with Rigatoni (featuring braised pigs’ feet). And don’t worry—Martorano doesn't skip the cocktails or dessert! Expect to indulge in Peanut Butter Cake with Peanut Butter Zabaglione, Cannoli Cream, Tuscan Lemonade, and Sicilian Mules. Steve Martorano’s It Ain’t Sauce, It’s Gravy delivers all the staples of delicious neighborhood-style comfort food, served up in the author’s one-of-a-kind, deliciously fun-loving style.
A former Gambino family mobster complements the story of his life on the run with culinary tips and Italian recipes, including such dishes as "chicken Andrea," "filet mignon Oscar," and "linguine with white clam sauce."
Please note this has been optimised for display on tablets and colour devices. Bursting with delicious recipes and stunning illustrations, this is a food memoir like no other. Curry has become an integral part of our staple diet but few of us are aware of what 'authentic' means when it comes to Britain's favourite food - how it is cooked and what makes it so sublime. Instead we have been patronised with dumbed-down versions of wonderfully spiced dishes through the provision of gooey mixtures that slime their way out of jars. 'No more!' cries self-proclaimed Urban Rajah Ivor Peters. The search for homemade, straightforward fragrant food ends here. Packed full of inspiring stories and generations-old recipes, this book opens the door into a world of family cooking that will teach us how to cook delicious curry in our own homes. So put down that jar of low-fat chicken tikka masala, rip up your takeaway menu and let Ivor lead you through a journey of spice that will leave you revelling in colour, yearning for the delicate smells of cardamom and cinnamon and desperate to tear a chapatti to shreds and plunge it into a curry feast of your own making.
