  • DRIVING HUNGRY

    Layne Mosler

    Adrift in Buenos Aires, Layne Mosler was hungry--for an excellent (and cheap) meal, for a great story, for a new direction. A chance recommendation from a taxi driver helped her find all these things, and sparked a quest that would take her to three cities, meeting people from all walks of life, and finding an array of unexpected flavors. A story about following your passion, the pleasures of not always knowing your destination, and the beauty of chance encounters, Driving Hungry is a vivid, and inspiring, read from first to last.

  • A gourmand's guide to the slim life shares the principles of French gastronomy, the art of enjoying all edibles in proportion, arguing that the secret of being thin and happy lies in the ability to appreciate and balance pleasures.

  • I'd happily cook from this book every night' Bee Wilson 'Bursting with what will be instant Nigella classics - not to mention encouraging late-night visits to the fridge for leftovers. This is a book for those who see food as sheer pleasure' Good Housekeeping **The Sunday Times Bestseller** Featuring all the inspiring, achievable and delicious recipes from Nigella's BBC TV series - At My Table, plus many more.

    Nigella Lawson is a champion of the home cook and her new book celebrates the food she loves to cook for friends and family. The recipes are warming, comforting, and inspirational, from new riffs on classic dishes - including Chicken Fricassee and Sticky Toffee Pudding - to adventures in a host of new dishes and ingredients, from Aubergine Fatteh to White Miso Hummus.

    AT MY TABLE includes dishes to inspire all cooks and eaters, from Hake with Bacon, Peas and Cider to Indian-Spiced Chicken and Potato Traybake and Chilli Mint Lamb Cutlets; plus a host of colourful vegetable dishes, like Eastern Mediterranean Chopped Salad and Carrots and Fennel with Harissa.

    No Nigella cookbook would be complete without sweet treats, and AT MY TABLE is no exception, with Emergency Brownies, White Chocolate Cheesecake and a Victoria Sponge with Cardamom, Marmalade and Creme Fraiche set to become family favourites.

    As Nigella writes, 'happiness is best shared' and the food in this book will be served and savoured at your own kitchen table just as it is at hers.
