It is not just the Scots who have mastered the art of producing this delectable drink.

    Format: HARD COVER
    Publishing status: TEMPORARILY OUT OF STOCK

    Acquacotta is a celebration of the traditional cuisine of a lesser known part of Tuscany, the Silver Coast, which forms part of the territory of Maremma. Acquacotta, literally meaning "cooked water", is Maremma's most famous dish, a soup made of slowly simmered tomatoes and onions and poached eggs. There are countless variations, and every town has its own.

    The book includes personal stories, memories and lessons from the people (producers, winemakers, breeders, fisherman) Emiko has met. The Silver Coast is a geographically quite narrow area in the southernmost coastal part of the region - and includes the island-like promontory of Monte Argentario, the island of Giglio, the lagoon town of Orbetello and the last Tuscan town on the border of Lazio, Capalbio. Surrounded by thick, wild boar-inhabiting, forest-covered hills and twisted, ancient olive trees, the area is known for its rustic peasant cooking, where hearty soups, hand-reared chickens or rabbits, foraged wild vegetables, mushrooms and chestnuts and wild-caught game have long provided sustenance - and still colour the local cuisine.Acquacotta champions the food Emiko loves to eat and cook - comforting, low-maintenance and easy to prepare. It's food that calls for sharing with friends or family, gathered around a big table. And like most peasant cuisine, it is about getting the best out of a few ingredients and providing a belly-filling meal that not only doesn't cost the earth, but is delicious.

    Acquacotta offers more than 80 recipes across five chapters divided by themes: Dal Bosco - which means feed from the woods and includes foraged and hunted foods; Dal Mare - which means from the sea and includes typical seafood of the area including from the lagoon; Dal Orto - which means from the vegetable patch; Dal Fattoria - which means from the farm and include dishes inspired by the farm tradition in the area, which often includes legumes, grains, rabbit, poultry and eggs; Dolci - sweets, preserves and homemade liquors.

    The food of Italy's eastern coastline mirrors the memories and traditions of peoples past and present who have lived on the shores of the Adriatic, with ingredients reflecting the climate and terrain – of course with seafood in abundance, as well as an array of incredible pasta, rice, polenta and meat dishes.

    The Adriatic coastline runs from the heel of the boot-shaped peninsula at the Ionian Sea, through Puglia and Venice, to the northern waters of the Gulf of Trieste on the border with Slovenia. Along its length are rugged rocky coast lInes, sandy stretches of beach, lagoons and wetlands. Spindly wooden fishing piers, white washed walls, colourful villages and sea-facing piazzas dot the 1,200-kilometre coastline with a rich history touched by Etruscan, Greek, Roman, Venetian and Austrian populations.

    Join Paola on this beautiful journey where she travels the length of this relatively unexplored coastline, to find ancient food traditions still thriving.

    Title: APPETITES : A COOKBOOK
    Author: BOURDAIN ANTHONY
    Format: HARD COVER
    Publishing status: ACTIVE TITLE

    Brash, wild, original and badass. This is Anthony Bourdain's interpretation of a normal cookbook.

    As a restaurant professional, Bourdain spent his life on the fringes of normality - he worked while normal people played, and played while normal people slept. Since then he has settled (kind of) into family life and is cooking for the people he loves rather than people who pay. These are the recipes he turns to when called in for pancake service at sleepover parties or when preparing a violence-free family dinner.

    Each and every word is informed by his years in the industry and a life dedicated to food. This is a man who has declared the club sandwich as America's Enemy and wants you to understand the principles of Bad Sandwich Theory. He has distilled his views on dessert to this: it should always be Stilton.

    Illustrated with photography that somehow manages to be both strangely beautiful and utterly grotesque, this cookbook - Bourdain's first in ten years - is a home-cooking, home-entertaining cookbook like no other.

    "The idea for this cookbook came about when my mother and I were looking through an old book of recipes that her grandmother, Kathleen, hand-wrote for her when she married my father in 1963. All the measurements were in ounces, and of course there were no pictures in the book. We were admiring the curly old handwriting, yellowed pages and strange ingredients, and I thought, “This is silly, there’s so much history in this book. I need to cook some of these recipes!”

    I was curious to find out what the food looked and tasted like.The cooking and photographing of the finished products became a documentation process, and before long I decided to make a cookbook of the recipes to keep my great-grandmother’s history alive. My mother suggested we make it a family cookbook by asking the rest of the family to send in their favourite recipes. I took it one step further by including everyone in the extended family, young and old, alive and dead!

    From England to Australia to Singapore, we’ve collected recipes from family members up to eight generations apart. The oldest recipe you’ll find is a list of ingredients for traditional cough medicine, scribbled in a copy of the Bible by my great-great-great-great grandfather in 1853. It includes some unusual ingredients: half an ounce of squills, oil of sweet almond, syrup of mulberries and paregoric elixir. The newest recipe is from my six-year-old son Angus, who has contributed a recipe for hamburgers.

    Cooking has been my creative outlet since my children came along. In my household, there’s always someone in the kitchen making something. It’s total involvement – my husband Will chats to me while I’m cooking, my daughter Sophia will pick the parsley, my oldest daughter Chloe will be baking a cake – the kitchen really is the heart of the house and I’m pretty much always there.

    I’m incredibly proud of this book, as is everyone in my extended family. Everyone has embraced the project and feels connected to this delicious documentation of our history. And it all started with my great-grandmother Kathleen (or K.M., as she was known) and her beautiful curly handwriting. K.M. had a colourful life and a lot of secrets that are long forgotten, but at least we have her recipe for trifle. This book is a way to keep the memories of those fascinating ancestors alive, and introduce new generations to delicious, nourishing food."
