WELCOME

This can be an arduous task but I find the best incentive is promising myself that once it's done I can buy more books. So if you're going to subject yourself to dirty hands and lots of sneezing be sure to reward yourself with one of the great titles below.

 Click here for more details or to order HISTORIC HESTON
by Heston Blumenthal


The greatest Victorian dishes, as reinvented by Heston Blumenthal, chef and proprietor of the three-Michelin-starred The Fat Duck - presented in a gloriously lavish package.

Historic Heston starts with twenty-eight historic dishes, take them apart, put them together again and what have you got? A sublime twenty-first-century take on delicacies including meat fruit (1500), quaking pudding (1660) and mock turtle soup (1892). Heston examines the history behind each one's invention and the science that makes it work. He puts these dishes in their social context and follows obscure culinary trails, ferreting out such curious sources as The Queen-like Closet from 1672 (which offers an excellent method for drying goose).

This glorious tome also gives a unique insight into the way that Heston works, with signature dishes from his world-famous restaurants. Superbly illustrated, Historic Heston is a book to treasure.

THE GREEN DESERT
by Peter Elfes

BLACK CAVIAR
by Gerald Whateley


Click here for more details or to order

For the last few years photographer Peter Elfes has been travelling to the Lake Eyre region, documenting the people, the landscape, the floods, the animals and wildlife.

His spectacular images re-define landcsape photography, taking it into the realm of art. Where others have only found an unchanging Australian desert, Peter's lens reveals the spectrum of colours, the dramas and infinite changes which countless artists and writers have sought to explain. Accompanied by text by renowned author and critic, Peter Timms, this is Australia as you've never seen it before, a strange and intoxicating land which occasionally becomes a green desert.
