Chichester Pubs
Chichester derives its name from the Saxon 'Cisseceaster', although it retains its street plan and city walls from its origins as the Roman settlement of 'Noviomagus'. As the principal trading town of West Sussex, many inns and taverns were established here at an early date, particularly those offering hospitality for pilgrims travelling to the thirteenth century shine of St Richard in the Cathedral. Of nearly all the ancient inns, such as the Tabard of 1440, nothing survives except names in old documents. Most of the less salubrious pubs had their licenses revoked forever in the infamous 'Massacre of 1903', while further, more lamentable losses occurred in the early 1960s in the name of 'slum-clearance'. Yet the city contains some remarkable survivors, most notably the Dolphin & Anchor, now JD Wetherspoon but originally seventeenth century and, until 1910, two separate establishments, divided by political allegiance to the Whigs and Tories respectively. David Muggleton takes us on a tour of this compact but elegant city, taking in a variety of period pub architecture and history, including the Georgian Ship Hotel, where plans were discussed for the Allied invasion of Europe; the Victorian Park Tavern, once called the Ritz and meeting place of Ye Ancient Order of Froth Blowers; the Old Cross, rebuilt in 1928; and the contemporary real-ale-purveying cafe bar, Belle Isle.

ArtiCulos De Costumbres: By Mariano Jose De Larra
This is an annotated critical edition of Articulos de costumbres by the Romantic journalist Mariano Jose de Larra (1809-37), presented with a critical introduction, study guide, glossary and chronology. Larra is still one of the most widely studied Spanish Romantic authors, and his satire of customs and manners in articles such as El castellano viejo, Vuelva usted manana and Nochebuena de 1836 offers an insight into nineteenth century Spanish culture, while probing issues that are still seen as defining of Spanish identity today. Articulos de costumbres, presented here with an extensive annotation that identifies references that have not been previously elucidated, is a central text in the Spanish canon, opening up questions about modern Spain and issues such as political revolution, class identities, social change and the inclusion of Spain within European modernity. -- .

Relish: My Life on a Plate
The eye-opening story of one woman's incredible appetite for life: the memoirs of Prue Leith, judge of C4's GREAT BRITISH BAKE OFF and former judge of BBC2's GREAT BRITISH MENU. Now fully revised and updated, including Prue falling in love and marrying again in her 70s.'What a terrific tale it is - of a South African girl who could stand the heat and made the kitchen into a remarkable career' TelegraphPrue Leith describes herself as greedy in all senses of the word. Cook, caterer, restaurateur, food writer, journalist, novelist, businesswoman, teacher, television presenter, charity worker, lover, wife and mother, she has certainly been greedy for life. Prue came to London in the early 1960s and, not long afterwards, opened Leith's Restaurant. By the mid-seventies she was a food columnist on the Daily Mail, had published several cookbooks and opened Leith's School of Food and Wine. But it wasn't all work. Prue writes with honesty of her love life, her longing for children, the birth of her son, the adoption of her daughter and much else besides. In this fully revised and updated edition she tells of how she met, fell in love with and married John Playfair as well as her exciting new role as a judge on Great British Bake Off. Prue's down-to-earth attitude to life and her remarkable energy are an inspiration to anyone.

Cherish: Food to Make for the People You Love
'Sesame & Spice is an absolute treat; full of warmth and generosity, and so many recipes I want to cook, that I've been headily immoderate with my post-it notes!' Nigella Lawson The recipes in Cherish are the food that Anne Shooter cooks for her family - the cookbook that her daughters wanted her to write. Full of love and generosity, the recipes come from Anne's Jewish background and the times her family and friends come together to eat. With the same warm, home-style cooking of Sabrina Ghayour's Persiana, Olia Hercules' Mamushka and Emma Spitzer's Fress, Anne will open up a world of recipes that you will cook over and over again. 'Every Friday, like my mum and my grandma, and her mother before her, I prepare a traditional, Jewish dinner for my family and friends. But this book isn't only aimed at Jewish people. That's where my recipes come from, but they are recipes that I want to share with everyone. Easy to cook, delicious to eat and full of warmth and generousity. I cook these recipes whenever we have friends or family over - a weekday one-tray supper of chicken, aubergine and bulghar wheat, a Sunday lunch of lamb shanks with apricots or a duck, fig and pomegranate salad for our New Year. I can turn around a veritable feast of a dinner in a couple of hours because these recipes are tried and tested by generations of cooks before me, recipes I will be passing on to my daughters for their own families one day, I hope, and that you will to yours. This is indeed a book inspired by my Jewish roots, but above all, it is a book of food to make for people you love.'

Kitchens, Cooking, and Eating in Medieval Italy
The modern twenty-first century kitchen has an array of time saving equipment for preparing a meal: a state of the art stove and refrigerator, a microwave oven, a food processor, a blender and a variety of topnotch pots, pans and utensils. We take so much for granted as we prepare the modern meal - not just in terms of equipment, but also the ingredients, without needing to worry about availability or seasonality. We cook with gas or electricity - at the turn of the switch we have instant heat. But it wasn't always so. Just step back a few centuries to say the 1300s and we'd find quite a different kitchen, if there was one at all. We might only have a fireplace in the main living space of a small cottage. If we were lucky enough to have a kitchen, the majority of the cooking would be done over an open hearth, we'd build a fire of wood or coal and move a cauldron over the fire to prepare a stew or soup. A drink might be heated or kept warm in a long-handled saucepan, set on its own trivet beside the fire. Food could be fried in a pan, grilled on a gridiron, or turned on a spit. We might put together a small improvised oven for baking. Regulating the heat of the open flame was a demanding task. Cooking on an open hearth was an all-embracing way of life and most upscale kitchens had more than one fireplace with chimneys for ventilation. One fireplace was kept burning at a low, steady heat at all times for simmering or boiling water and the others used for grilling on a spit over glowing, radiant embers. This is quite a different situation than in our modern era - unless we were out camping and cooking over an open fire. In this book Katherine McIver explores the medieval kitchen from its location and layout (like Francesco Datini of Prato two kitchens), to its equipment (the hearth, the fuels, vessels and implements) and how they were used, to who did the cooking (man or woman) and who helped. We'll look at the variety of ingredients (spices, herbs, meats, fruits, vegetables), food preservation and production (salted fish, cured meats, cheese making) and look through recipes, cookbooks and gastronomic texts to complete the picture of cooking in the medieval kitchen. Along the way, she looks at illustrations like the miniatures from the Tacuinum Sanitatis (a medieval health handbook), as well as paintings and engravings, to give us an idea of the workings of a medieval kitchen including hearth cooking, the equipment used, how cheese was made, harvesting ingredients, among other things. She explores medieval cookbooks such works as Anonimo Veneziano, Libro per cuoco (fourtheenth century), Anonimo Toscano, Libro della cucina (fourteenth century), Anonimo Napoletano (end of thirteenth/early fourteenth century), Liber de coquina, Anonimo Medidonale, Due libri di cucina (fourteenth century), Magninus Mediolanensis (Maino de' Maineri), Opusculum de saporibus (fourteenth century), Johannes Bockenheim, Il registro di cucina (fifteenth century), Maestro Martino's Il Libro de arte coquinaria (fifteenth century) and Bartolomeo Sacchi, called Platina's On Right Pleasure and Good Health (1470). This is the story of the medieval kitchen and its operation from the thirteenth-century until the late fifteenth-century.

Fresh Fruit Tea Quarters are another new innovation, combining tea and fresh fruit juice to create a refreshing soft drink.

In Easy Leaf Tea there will be recipes to make the most of matcha and the other stoneground teas now available so you can learn to make tasty Somersault drinks - frappes, milk shakes and ice creams. So turn on your kettle, tune into tea culture and drop those tasteless tea bags for some of the best leaf tea experiences you can have.

Amarone and the Fine Wines of Verona
Michael Garner's Amarone and the fine wines of Verona is the first book to focus on the third of the triumvirate of great Italian reds: amarone. Garner describes the astonishing growth of amarone's popularity during the last twenty years and its rise from a wine that first appeared in the 1950s to its role today as ambassador for the fine wines of Italy. To understand amarone properly the wine needs to be seen in its true context, that is within the hierarchy of the wines of Verona, which have a history of production and consumption dating back to pre-Roman times. The other wines of Verona are no less well-known if not necessarily held in such great esteem: soave and valpolicella have been among post-war Italy's top selling wines. They too are wines with massive followings. Michael Garner's Amarone and the fine wines of Verona is a sure-footed guide to all aspects of Veronese wine production, examining the history of the wines and geography of the region as well as viticulture, climate, grape varieties, wine styles and appassimento. Amarone and the fine wines of Verona concludes with profiles of all the region's important producers, including assessments of their wines. Michael Garner is a world authority on Italian wine and Amarone and the fine wines of Verona is essential reading for all wine professionals, students and collectors as well as serious wine lovers and wine tourists.

Edible Satire: The Reversibles Degustation
Through the pages of this extraordinary and beautifully designed book, resplendent with stunning photography, Isadora Chai explores a gastro gourmand's take on a delicious array of superbly satirical but infinitely edible recipes. If the degustations at her own little hole-in-the-wall, Bistro a Table in Kuala Lumpur, were constantly driven to be out of the box, furthering the mantra, Edible Satire looks to turning the box inside out. Chai presents a wide range of dishes directly reversed, such as the Reversed Sushi and the Reversed Root Beer Float, where the proportions of the components and the composition of well-known dishes are reversed. And then to take a step further, the courses are also served in a similarly reversible fashion. Intrigued? This book is a spectacular snapshot of a culinary expert whose star continues to rise. The recipes are expertly set out with incredible attention to detail of each specific element on the plate, and include international cuisines, spectacular desserts, and other delectable dishes.

Dictators' Dinners: The Bad Taste Guide to Entertaining Tyrants
What did dictators eat? Sometimes simply obscene amounts of the best their nations could offer, but more often their humble origins, or embarrassing medical conditions, or simple lack of interest in food meant their tastes were unpretentious - ranging from human flesh, to raw garlic salad, to Quality Street. Dictators' Dinners is an investigation into what some of the world's most notorious 20th century despots have enjoyed at their dinner tables, and with whom. Here we learn of their foibles, their eccentricities and their frequent terror of poisoning - something no number of food tasters was ever able to assuage. For a selection of 25 former national figureheads across the world, each section comprises an outline of the dictator's history, a short essay on their particular eating habits, table manners, digestive systems etc. and one or two of their favourite recipes.

Diet and the Disease of Civilization
Diet books, which have been bestsellers for over a hundred years, contribute to a $60 billion industry as they speak to the 45 million Americans who diet every year. Yet these books don't just tell readers what to eat: they offer complete philosophies about who Americans are and how we all should live. Diet and the Disease of Civilization interrupts the predictable debate about eating right to ask a hard question: what if it's not calories-but concepts-that should be counted? Cultural critic Adrienne Rose Bitar reveals how four popular diets recreate the Fall of Man as the narrative backbone for our national consciousness. Intensifying the moral panic of the obesity epidemic, they depict civilization itself as a disease and offer diet as the one true cure. Bitar reads each diet-the Paleo Diet, the Garden of Eden Diet, the Pacific Island Diet, the detoxification or detox diet-as both a myth and a manual, a story with side effects igniting social movements, driving industry, and shaping fundamental ideas about sickness and health. These are fresh stories with broader concerns and higher stakes than we have previously understood. Diet and the Disease of Civilization unearths the ways in which diet books are actually utopian manifestos not just for better bodies but also for a healthier society and a more perfect world.
