200 Recipes for Kids
Author: Emma Jane Frost
As parents, we all know that children can be notoriously difficult to cook for. Many of us fall into the habit of cooking the same dishes over and over again, simply because we cannot bear the idea of scraping wasted food into the bin at the end of a meal. However, a child's formative years are when they learn to accept and like new foods, and it is therefore of great importance to encourage them with new tastes and different textures as often as you can. Hamlyn All Colour Cookbook: 200 Recipes for Kids has been put together with this in mind, but also with the knowledge that children are generally fussy creatures and like their food to be simple and to look good. Each recipe has been photographed to show you exactly what you will be cooking (and what they will be eating), and has of course been tested for child-appeal. To prevent your children getting bored by the same meals, we have also added a creative variation at the end of each recipe.
The Flavor Thesaurus
Author: Niki Segnit
Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing USA
In this lively and exceptionally enjoyable book, career flavor scientist Niki Segnit uncovers the essential flavors of food, and organizes them into 160 basic ingredients. In this concise way, she articulates every flavor imaginable, whether it's a "grassy" food like dill, cucumber, or peas, or a "floral fruity" one like figs, roses, or blueberries. And then she considers every conceivable combination of these ingredients. Segnit has scoured thousands of recipes in countless recipe books, talked to dozens of food technologists and chefs, and visited hundreds of restaurants-all in her quest to uncover the planet's essential flavor pairings. The result is a reminder that there are almost infinite possibilities in an everyday kitchen, whether it means spinning celery and dill into a savory broth, orange and carrots into a crisp salad, or cabbage and sage into an elegant cream sauce. This book is also full of quirky observations, practical information (hundreds of recipes are embedded in the narrative) and more than a few good jokes. Beautifully packaged, The Flavor Thesaurus is not only a highly useful, and covetable, reference book that will immeasurably improve your cooking-it's the sort of book that might keep you up at night reading.
