Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall - River Cottage minden napra
"Ebben a könyvben ismét megpróbálok minél többeket boldogabbá tenni. Ezért aztán leírom, milyen ételeket eszem nap mint nap otthon, mi a viszonyunk a kenyérrel, a hússal, a hallal, a gyümölcsökkel és a zöldségekkel; három éhes iskolás gyerek mellett hogyan zsonglőrködünk a reggelivel, és dolgozó szülőkként mit eszünk a hétköznapokon ebédre. Azt is elmesélem, hogy miért készítünk rengeteg ételt (köztük néhány abszolút kedvencünket) előző napi maradékokból. Megpróbálom bemutatni, a családi főzések alkalmával hogyan helyezhetünk nagyobb hangsúlyt a zöldségekre és gyümölcsökre, és miként hozhatjuk ki a legtöbbet a legértékesebb alapanyagokból, például a húsból és a halból. Néhány hasznos ötlettel rávilágítok, hogy az otthoni vendéglátás kevésbé ijesztő, olcsóbb és alapvetően örömtelibb is lehet. Az olvasók elé tárom a recepteket, amelyeket a családomnak főzök, és azokat is, amiket - amikor igazán szerencsés vagyok - ők készítenek nekem." Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall díjnyertes író, médiaszemélyiség; a szezonális termények fogyasztása és a lelkiismeretes állattenyésztés rendíthetetlen harcosa. Tizenöt éve készít és vezet műsorokat a brit Channel Four televíziós csatornán, ez a hatodik River Cottage-könyve. Korábbi munkái közül a The River Cottage Cookbook cíművel elnyerte a Glenfiddich-díjat. A The River Cottage Meat Book és a The River Cottage Fish Book egyaránt megkapta az André Simon-kitüntetést, a The River Cottage Family Cookbookot pedig a Gasztronómiai Írók Szövetsége az év szakácskönyvének választotta. A Guardianben hetente olvasható receptrovatot vezet. Hugh családjával Devonban él, egy kőhajításnyira a River Cottage HQ-tól, ahol ő és csapata tanít, valamint különféle rendezvényeiken fejezik ki a helyi, szezonális alapanyagokból készített ételek iránti szeretetüket.
Nigella Lawson - Nigellissima
Nigellissima takes inspiration from Italian cooking to bring the spirit of Italy into the kitchen and onto the plate, pronto. At the heart of Italian cookery lies a celebration of food that is fresh, tasty and unpretentious; Nigella Lawson reflects this in recipes that are simple and speedy, elevating everyday eating into no-fuss feasts. Italian food has colonised the world. Nigellissima shows us how and why in over 100 delicious dishes - from telephone-cord pasta with Sicilian pesto to the crustless Meatzza, from Sardinian couscous to Venetian stew, from penne to papardelle, from rag to risotto, from Italian apple pie and no-churn ices to panna cotta and sambuca kisses - in a round-Italy quickstep that culminates in a festive chapter of party food, with an Italian-inspired Christmas feast as its mouthwatering centrepiece. From the traditional to the unfamiliar, here are recipes to excited the taste buds and the imagination, without stressing the cook. Nigella's gastronomic heart is in Italy, and in this new book she conjures up, with passionate relish, the warmth, simplicity and directness of Italian cooking, with an Anglo-twist. Illustrated with gorgeous photographs to instruct and delight Nigellissima is accompanied by a major new BBC TV series.
Oscar Wilde - Dorian Gray arcképe
Oscar Wilde klasszikus regényének hőse, a gazdag, gyönyörű és naiv fiatalember, Dorian Gray megszállottja annak a gondolatnak, hogy örökké fiatal és szép maradjon, s ezért még akár a lelkét is eladná. Miután az egyik barátja megfesti portréját, a fiú csak azt fájlalja, hogy az ő szépségét az élet és az idő hamar lerombolja majd, míg a képe örök marad, s azt kívánja, hogy bárcsak ez fordítva lenne. A fiatalember hamarosan cinikus barátja, Lord Henry Wotton befolyása alá kerül, aki ráébreszti az élet ízeire. Dorian átadja magát az önző és rafinált élvezeteknek, férfiakat és nőket taszít a bűn útjára, majd egyre mélyebbre süllyed, s a züllés minden nemét és formáját megtapasztalja. Az események egyre riasztóbb fordulatot vesznek, mivel nemsokára megtudja, hogy kívánsága teljesült. Legnagyobb csodálkozására ugyanis csak a róla készült kép öregszik. Arca és szeme őrzi az ártatlan ifjú szépségét, a festett arcmás viszont, amelyet gondosan elzárva tart háza egy titkos helyiségében, híven mutatja az idő és a bűn rombolását vonásain. Ekkor úgy érzi, itt az ideje megváltoztatnia az életét. Hogy teljesen tisztára mossa magát, bűnös múltjának tanúját, a szörnyűséges képet meg akarja semmisíteni...
Julia Child - Louisette Bertholle - Simone Beck - Mastering the Art of French Cooking
Mastering the Art of French Cooking is for both seasoned cooks and beginners who love good food and long to reproduce at home the savory delights of the classic cuisine, from the historic Gallic masterpieces to the seemingly artless perfection of a dish of spring-green peas. This beautiful book, with more than 100 instructive illustrations, is revolutionary in its approach because: • it leads the cook infallibly from the buying and handling of raw ingredients, through each essential step of a recipe, to the final creation of a delicate confection; • it breaks down the classic cuisine into a logical sequence of themes and variations rather than presenting an endless and diffuse catalogue of recipes; the focus is on key recipes that form the backbone of French cookery and lend themselves to an infinite number of elaborations—bound to increase anyone’s culinary repertoire; • it adapts classical techniques, wherever possible, to modern American conveniences; • it shows Americans how to buy products, from any supermarket in the United States, that reproduce the exact taste and texture of the French ingredients, for example, equivalent meat cuts, the right beans for a cassoulet, or the appropriate fish and seafood for a bouillabaisse; • it offers suggestions for just the right accompaniment to each dish, including proper wines. Since there has never been a book as instructive and as workable as Mastering the Art of French Cooking, the techniques learned here can be applied to recipes in all other French cookbooks, making them infinitely more usable. In compiling the secrets of famous cordons bleus, the authors have produced a magnificent volume that is sure to find the place of honor in every kitchen in America. Bon appétit!
Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall - Három jó dolog... a tányéron
"Szeretnék friss, kreatív irányt mutatni a főzésben, felfedve azt a sémát, amely sok közkedvelt ételt jellemez. Mire is gondolok? Paradicsom, avokádó és mozzarella; Szent Jakab-kagyló, bacon és zöldborsópüré; rebarbara, morzsa és sodó... Jól működő kombinációk, ugye? Talán nem is újdonság ez a megállapítás, hiszen nem titok, hogy a három bűvös szám, és ezeknek a fogásoknak mindegyike egyszerűen annyi, mint három jó dolog a tányéron. Három jó dolog ihletett elrendezése ki nem hunyó fénnyel képes elárasztani a legszerényebb alapanyagokat is, s a konyhaművészet magasabb szintjére emeli őket, hogy együtt valami olyat alkossanak, ami nagyszerűbb, mint a részek összessége."

Nigella Lawson - Kitchen
A big, compendious, comfortable, informative and utterly engaging book, "Kitchen" brings us feel-good food for cooks and eaters, whether Express-style and exotic-easy during the week, or leisurely and luxuriating (in the spirit of How to be a Domestic Goddess and Feast) at weekends or for occasions. Divided into two parts - Kitchen Quandaries and Kitchen Comforts - Nigella gives us the wherewithal to tackle any situation and satisfy all nourishment needs. But real cooking is often about leftovers, too, so here one recipe can lead to another...from ham hocks to pea soup and pasties, from chicken to Chinatown salad. This isn't just about being thrifty but about demonstrating how recipes come about, and giving new inspiration for last-minute meals and souped-up store cupboard suppers. As well as offering the reader a mouthwatering array of new recipes, both comforting and exciting - from clams with chorizo to Guinness gingerbread, from Asian braised beef to flourless chocolate lime cake, from Pasta alla Genovese to Venetian carrot cake - Nigella rounds up her kitchen kit must-haves (telling us, too, what equipment we don't need) and highlights individual ingredients - both basic essentials and modern-day life-savers. But above all, she reminds the reader how much pleasure there is to be had in real food, and in reclaiming the traditional rhythms of the kitchen, as she cooks to the beat of the heart of the home, creating simple recipes to make life less complicated.

Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall - The River Cottage Year
"Shopping seasonally is not a high-minded duty, or a restrictive chore, but a liberating pleasure. The downside of the modern food culture of infinite year-round choice is a kind of options paralysis - there's so much on offer that you don't know where to start. Understanding the seasons frees you from this ball and chain. In a world where the production and marketing has gone mad, seasonality is sanity. It implies freshness, good taste and even good health. And it offers the best and quickest solution to the never-ending question, what shall I cook today?" - Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall
