The Tucci Family brings wine pairings, updated recipes, gorgeous photography, and family memories to a new generation of Italian food lovers.

There is some truth to the old adage “Most of the world eats to live, but Italians live to eat.”

What is it about a good Italian supper that feels like home, no matter where you’re from? Heaping plates of steaming pasta . . . crisp fresh vegetables . . . simple hearty soups . . . sumptuous stuffed meats . . . all punctuated with luscious, warm confections.

For acclaimed actor Stanley Tucci, teasing our taste buds in classic foodie films such as Big Night and Julie & Julia was a logical progression from a childhood filled with innovative homemade Italian meals: decadent Venetian Seafood Salad; rich and gratifying Lasagna Made with Polenta and Gorgonzola Cheese; spicy Spaghetti with Tomato and Tuna; delicate Pork Tenderloin with Fennel and Rosemary; fruity Roast Duck with Fresh Figs; flavorful Baked Whole Fish in an Aromatic Salt Crust; savory Eggplant and Zucchini Casserole with Potatoes; buttery Plum and Polenta Cake; and yes, of course, the legendary Timpano.

Featuring nearly 200 irresistible recipes, perfectly paired with delicious wines, The Tucci Cookbook is brimming with robust flavors, beloved Italian traditions, mouthwatering photographs, and engaging, previously untold stories from the family’s kitchen.

'A brilliant new book'- Daily Mail

Eating healthily can be a confusing business. But what if there were a single, simple change you could make that would transform your health, without forcing you to give up the foods you love?

According to a growing body of international studies, little tweaks to your everyday diet to get you beyond the 5-a-day minimum and towards 10-a-day could slash your risk of developing the biggest diseases to affect the Western world. In fact, experts agree that simply eating more fruit and veg is the single most important dietary change you can do for your health!

As only 3 out of 10 people are even achieving the minimum amount of fruit and veg, this book aims to make getting there easy. No gimmicks, no 'banned' foods, no miserly portion sizes. Just 80 of the classic recipes you know and love made healthier (and tastier) by simply upping the amount of fruit and veg in them, all backed by the best science available.


How to Eat Better: How to Shop, Store & Cook to Make Any Food a Superfood by James Wong (99p)

https://www.amazon.co.uk/How-Eat-Better-Store-Superfood-ebook/dp/B01M22FPMO/ref=sr_1_668?qid=1585725435&s=digital-text&sr=1-668


Quote
'James Wong brings some welcome sanity to the world of healthy eating...its genius is his advice on how to get more nutrition from fruit and veg. It's fascinating, and better than cutting out food groups or paying for so-called superfoods' - delicious. magazine

SELECT a Braeburn apple over a Fuji and get almost double the antioxidants from a fruit that tastes just as sweet.

STORE strawberries on the counter, instead of in the fridge, and in just four days they will quadruple their heart-healthy compounds.

COOK broccoli with a teaspoon of mustard and send its levels of cancer-fighting potential skyrocketing ten-fold.

Between the rush to keep up with the latest miracle ingredient, anxiety about E-numbers and demonization of gluten/dairy/sugar (or the next foodie villain du jour) many of us are left in a virtual panic in the supermarket aisle. Tabloid headlines, 'free-from' labels and judgemental Instagram hashtags hardly help matters - so what should we be buying?

How to Eat Better strips away the fad diets, superfood fixations and Instagram hashtags to give you a straight-talking scientist's guide to making everyday foods far healthier (and tastier) simply by changing the way you select, store and cook them. No diets, no obscure ingredients, no damn spiralizer, just real food made better, based on the latest scientific evidence from around the world. With over 80 foolproof recipes to put the theory into practice, James Wong shows you how to make any food a superfood, every time you cook.


RHS Grow for Flavour: Tips & tricks to supercharge the flavour of homegrown harvests by James Wong (99p and I use it on a regular basis)

https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00NT7YNFO/ref=dbs_a_def_rwt_hsch_vapi_tkin_p1_i1

Use James Wong's revolutionary tips and tricks to grow:

- Tomatoes that are 1.5 times sweeter than usual, with 50% more vitamin C
- Chillis with double the fire power
- Blueberries that are 3 times richer in antioxidants

... and that's only the beginning!

Have you ever grown a batch of lovingly nurtured tomatoes only to be disappointed by the flavour when you harvest them? Bestselling gardening writer and botanist James Wong shows you how to measurably increase the flavour of grow-your-own favourites such as sweetcorn, strawberries and tomatoes with a collection of deceptively simple tips and tricks.

Simply by growing the best-flavoured varieties and treating them just a bit meaner, you will not only get harvests with an intense flavour - but also slash the work involved. Combining cutting-edge science with overlooked traditional techniques, this ground-breaking book helps you to make the most of your crop, while at the same time revealing exciting new foodie varieties you never knew you could grow. James also provides 40 really simple recipes for delicious ways to eat what you've grown.

_____________

An essential gift for the keen cook in your life.

Borough Market is the beating heart of London's food scene. Every year millions of locals and tourists flock to Borough Market to soak up the unique atmosphere, interact with the expert traders and sample the world-class produce.

This gorgeous book takes you on a tour of a year at the Market, from the beginning of spring, through Easter and Midsummer, to Apple Day in October and the switching on of the lights at Christmas - with the most delicious recipes highlighting the very best of those celebrations.

Divided by season, each recipe celebrates at least one hero ingredient from that time of year: why not try Chilled asparagus soup in spring; Rolled pork belly and sticky nectarines in summer; Beetroot dal in autumn; or Clementine sponges with cranberry sauce in winter? Along the way, you'll be introduced to key seasonal ingredients with shopping and preparation tips, straight from the artisan producers, that will change how you cook for ever.

Packed full of beautiful photography, much of it shot on location at Borough throughout the year, this is a cookbook that will inspire food lovers and home cooks everywhere, even if they only follow Borough Market from afar.

THE PERFECT SPRING MENU

Perfect for this time of year: minted lamb meatballs in a light broth, studded with sweet sugar snap and mangetout peas.

Mango and passion fruit posset
An irresistible combination of sweet mango and sharp passion fruit, this posset is even more enjoyable if served with a buttery biscuit or tuile.


Ratio: The Simple Codes Behind the Craft of Everyday Cooking by Michael Ruhlman (99p)

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Ratio-Simple-Behind-Everyday-Cooking-ebook/dp/B00BORM9PC/ref=sr_1_924?qid=1585725694&s=digital-text&sr=1-924


Quote
Michael Ruhlman’s groundbreaking New York Times bestseller takes us to the very “truth” of cooking: it is not about recipes but rather about basic ratios and fundamental techniques that makes all food come together, simply.

When you know a culinary ratio, it’s not like knowing a single recipe, it’s instantly knowing a thousand.

Why spend time sorting through the millions of cookie recipes available in books, magazines, and on the Internet? Isn’t it easier just to remember 1-2-3? That’s the ratio of ingredients that always make a basic, delicious cookie dough: 1 part sugar, 2 parts fat, and 3 parts flour. From there, add anything you want—chocolate, lemon and orange zest, nuts, poppy seeds, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, almond extract, or peanut butter, to name a few favorite additions. Replace white sugar with brown for a darker, chewier cookie. Add baking powder and/or eggs for a lighter, airier texture.

Ratios are the starting point from which a thousand variations begin.

Ratios are the simple proportions of one ingredient to another. Biscuit dough is 3:1:2—or 3 parts flour, 1 part fat, and 2 parts liquid. This ratio is the beginning of many variations, and because the biscuit takes sweet and savory flavors with equal grace, you can top it with whipped cream and strawberries or sausage gravy. Vinaigrette is 3:1, or 3 parts oil to 1 part vinegar, and is one of the most useful sauces imaginable, giving everything from grilled meats and fish to steamed vegetables or lettuces intense flavor.

Cooking with ratios will unchain you from recipes and set you free. With thirty-three ratios and suggestions for enticing variations, Ratio is the truth of cooking: basic preparations that teach us how the fundamental ingredients of the kitchen—water, flour, butter and oils, milk and cream, and eggs—work. Change the ratio and bread dough becomes pasta dough, cakes become muffins become popovers become crepes.

As the culinary world fills up with overly complicated recipes and never-ending ingredient lists, Michael Ruhlman blasts through the surplus of information and delivers this innovative, straightforward book that cuts to the core of cooking. Ratio provides one of the greatest kitchen lessons there is—and it makes the cooking easier and more satisfying than ever.

From their first shop in Notting Hill's Portobello Road, The Hummingbird Bakery introduced London to the delights of American-style baking. The simple yet spectacular recipes for indulgent cupcakes, muffins, pies, cheesecakes, brownies, cakes and cookies, in this, their first and bestselling cookbook, ensured that the home cook could create some Hummingbird magic in their own kitchens too.

Now Tarek Malouf and The Hummingbird Bakers have created a new edition of the book, fine-tuning their classic recipes and introducing new bakes such as:

    Mile-high Chocolate Salted Caramel Cake

    Sticky Fig and Pistachio Cupcakes

    Hot Cross Bun Cupcakes

    Chocolate Cola Cake


Here's a link to all the kindle food books on the monthly deal.
. Warning, some will probably go off before the month is up. There's some there that are on "sale" that are more than I'd pay or have poor rating or I think were awful. Or the author decided they had to have their name in the title as some mark of being wonderful that makes the books special. Which I disagree with.

Tin Can Cook: 75 Simple Store-cupboard Recipes by Jack Monroe (99p)

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Tin-Can-Cook-Store-cupboard-Recipes-ebook/dp/B07L34BL4Z/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=tin+can&qid=1585902033&s=digital-text&smid=A1G3UP32AZJ14F&sr=1-1

Quote
Winner of the OFM Best Food Personality Readers' Award, 2018. A Sunday Times bestseller.

'An exuberant rebuttal to the idea that good food must be expensive, farm-fresh and unprocessed.' - Ruby Tandoh

Simple and affordable, Tin Can Cook strips away the blinding glamour and elitism of many cookbooks and takes it back to the basics: making great-tasting food with ordinary ingredients.

Food writer and anti-poverty campaigner Jack Monroe presents Tin Can Cook, bringing together seventy-five recipes that you can rustle up from tinned and dried ingredients. Beautifully designed with accompanying quirky hand-drawn illustrations, this book is for you if you’ve struggled to make a dish because the recipe calls for an exotic ingredient you’ve never heard of. Jack does away with the effort; all her dishes are exciting and new, but you won’t have to look further than your local supermarket to make them.

Jack's recipes include Red Lentil and Mandarin Curry, Catalan Fish Stew, Pina Colada Toast and many more delicious and creative ideas.

'At a time when good food can often be seen as rather elitist or exclusive, Jack has done an excellent job to create recipes which are simple, straightforward and delicious.' - Felicity Spector

A really good novel.


Smile of the Wolf Kindle Edition by Tim Leach (99p)

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Smile-Wolf-Tim-Leach-ebook/dp/B0778NSTC3/ref=sr_1_993?qid=1585725797&s=digital-text&smid=A1G3UP32AZJ14F&sr=1-993

Quote
A SUNDAY TIMES HISTORICAL NOVEL OF THE YEAR.

Tenth-century Iceland. In the midwinter darkness, on the lifeless black soils of a newly settled land, two friends kill a man. Kjaran, an itinerant storyteller, and Gunnar, a once-feared warrior, must make a choice: conceal the deed or confess to it and pay the blood price to the dead man's brothers.

For the right reasons, they make the wrong choice.

Kjaran and Gunnar's fateful decision will leave them fighting for their lives, fighting to retain their humanity as Iceland's unyielding code of honour ignites a remorseless blood feud that will consume all it touches.

'Smile of the Wolf bares its fangs from the first page. Like a medieval tapestry, the storytelling is rich with imagery. Readers will be lured spellbound into this lyrical and evocative Icelandic saga. It deserves huge success' DAVID GILMAN.

Double Cross: The True Story of The D-Day Spies by Ben Macintyre (£1.39)

https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00746TVHG/ref=s9_acsd_hps_bw_c2_x_3_t?pf_rd_m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&pf_rd_s=merchandised-search-2&pf_rd_r=5A883Q0K8NM8BQSPE3PS&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=f919c5f8-edf0-4006-8e4e-0da74f867846&pf_rd_i=5400977031

Quote
D-Day, 6 June 1944, the turning point of the Second World War, was a victory of arms. But it was also a triumph for a different kind of operation: one of deceit, aimed at convincing the Nazis that Calais and Norway, not Normandy, were the targets of the 150,000-strong invasion force.

The deception involved every branch of Allied wartime intelligence - the Bletchley Park code-breakers, MI5, MI6, SOE, Scientific Intelligence, the FBI and the French Resistance. But at its heart was the 'Double Cross System', a team of double agents controlled by the secret Twenty Committee, so named because twenty in Roman numerals forms a double cross.

The key D-Day spies were just five in number, and one of the oddest military units ever assembled: a bisexual Peruvian playgirl, a tiny Polish fighter pilot, a Serbian seducer, a wildly imaginative Spaniard with a diploma in chicken farming, and a hysterical Frenchwoman whose obsessive love for her pet dog very nearly wrecked the entire deception. Their enterprise was saved from catastrophe by a shadowy sixth spy whose heroic sacrifice is here revealed for the first time. Under the direction of an eccentric but brilliant intelligence officer in tartan trousers, working from a smoky lair in St James's, these spies would weave a web of deception so intricate that it ensnared Hitler's army and helped to carry thousands of troops across the Channel in safety.

These double agents were, variously, brave, treacherous, fickle, greedy and inspired. They were not conventional warriors, but their masterpiece of deceit saved countless lives. Their codenames were Bronx, Brutus, Treasure, Tricycle and Garbo. This is their story.

The first part of J. R. R. Tolkien’s epic adventure
THE LORD OF THE RINGS

‘A most remarkable feat’
Guardian

In a sleepy village in the Shire, a young hobbit is entrusted with an immense task. He must make a perilous journey across Middle-earth to the Cracks of Doom, there to destroy the Ruling Ring of Power – the only thing that prevents the Dark Lord Sauron’s evil dominion.

Thus begins J. R. R. Tolkien’s classic tale of adventure, which continues in The Two Towers and The Return of the King.

Daily deal and I, BBC Radio 4, loads of papers and Richard and Judy Very highly recommend it. It's about a nurse who got early onset dementia, she writes it and about how it's affected and affecting her. How she works against it to keep herself.
It was a real insight. It was a proper heartbreak. Take food, she used to love cooking and make cuisines from all over the world. But now flavour means nothing to her, texture affects her and it's become pure fuel. She's no interest in it and has to barricade herself in the kitchen until she's eaten. She's not interested, hunger has no meaning and she forgets why she's in the kitchen and wanders off. That's hugely simplified, there is so much more to it. Sound was another, sound traffic outside her house went from something she didn't notice to overwhelming to the point she had to move house to a tiny village.
She works around problems like not remembering where things are, she puts photographs on the cupboards so she tell oh bla bla bla is in there. Then she has to put photographs on doors so she knows she can get out of the room.
