Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons, located in Great Milton, Oxford, is one of the finest hotel-restaurants in the world. This is a chance to step within the walls for legendary chef Raymond Blanc's personal tour, season by season. He reveals how every element of the place--from the Japanese garden to the Citronelle bedroom--was brought to life, and leads you into the kitchen to show you the culinary secrets of this double Michelin-starred restaurant. The book features 120 of Le Manoir's most celebrated dishes, including ricotta agnolotti, venison grand veneur, blood orange carpaccio, and apple tart Maman Blanc. Lavishly illustrated with full-color photography--of the gardens, rooms and recipes--and specially commissioned artwork that wittily captures the magical quality of an extraordinary place, this book will allow you to bring Le Manoir into your own home. Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons is available in two formats: a luxury clothbound special edition in a slipcase, and a smaller standard edition that will be equally at home in the kitchen and on the coffee table.

Alex Mackay is the chef who runs Delia Smith's renowned cookery school in Norwich; a man she has described as having a 'rare and special gift' for cookery. After working with Raymond Blanc, first as a sous-chef at Le Manoir au Quat' Saisions then as Director of Blanc's cookery school, in 2000, Alex and photographer Peter Knab opened Le Baou d'Infer, a cookery school in the heart of the Provencal countryside. Cooking in Provence is a collection of recipes born out of this experience - dishes cooked by Alex and his students and inspired by their love not just of the intoxicating flavours and food of the region, but its way of life. The recipes reflect the changing seasons, from refreshing summer dishes such as Salade Niçoise and Pissaladiere to the warming comfort of Daube en Boeuf and Bouillabaisse, authentically evoking the region's unique identity. Peter Knab's stunning photographs sit alongside Alex's vivid descriptions of the scenery, markets and people. Together they conjure a vision of Provence and the food integral to the region - from the fish caught along its beautiful coastline, to the aromatic herbs and vegetables harvested from its fields and the fruit grown in its orchards. This book provides not just a wonderful collection of mouthwatering dishes, but a slice of the warmth and beauty of Provence itself.

Digesting Recipes: The Art of Culinary Notation scrutinises the form of the recipe, using it as a means to explore a multitude of subjects in post-war Western art and culture, including industrial mass-production, consumerism, hidden labour, and art engaged with the everyday. Each chapter is presented as a dish in a nine-course meal, drawing on examples from published cookbooks and the work of artists such as Alison Knowles, Yoko Ono, Annette Messager, Martha Rosler, Barbara T. Smith, Bobby Baker and Mika Rottenberg. A recipe is an instruction, the imperative tone of the expert, but this constraint can offer its own kind of potential. A recipe need not be a domestic trap but might instead offer escape – something to fantasise about or aspire to. It can hold a promise of transformation both actual and metaphorical. It can be a proposal for action, or envision a possible future.

Before he was a top chef, Tom Colicchio learned to love cooking when he was still slinging burgers at a poolside snack bar. Barbara Lynch tells the story of lying her way into her first chef's job and then needing to cook her way out of trouble in the galley kitchen of a ship at sea. Stories of mentorship abound: Rick Bayless tells the story of finally working with Julia Child, his childhood hero; Gary Danko of earning the trust of the legendary Madeleine Kamman. How I Learned to Cook is an irresistible treat, a must-have for anyone who loves food and wants a look into the lives of the men and women who masterfully prepare it.

From Queen of Tarts to the nation's heart, Mary Berry shares her Recipe for Life. 'In the words of my father, my birth caused no end of trouble...' From the moment she came into the world - two weeks early, throwing her parents' lives into disarray - Mary has gracefully but firmly done things her own way. Born in 1935, in the city of Bath, Mary's childhood was a curious mix of idyllic picnics and ramblings, and alarming air raids; of a spirited and outdoorsy home life and a dreaded school existence. All nearly cut horribly short by an almost fatal bout of polio when she was thirteen, which isolated Mary in hospital, away from beloved family and friends for months. Recovery saw her turn to her one true passion - cookery. And so began a love affair that has - so far - spanned six remarkable decades; from demonstrating ovens in the early 1950s to producing glossy food magazines in the 60s and 70s, gradually becoming the country's most prolific and - many would say - best loved cookery writer. Until her emergence in the 21st century as a TV sensation and style icon on the Great British Bake Off. As a working mother, at the heart of a busy household, Mary became an expert at the art of juggling, even bringing her working life into her home with her Aga school. And there have been challenges, one terrible tragedy and many joys along the way. In this touching, evocative and fascinating memoir, we accompany Mary on her journey of nearly eighty years; a life lived to the full, with a wicked sense of fun and an eye for the absurd, it is the life of a delightfully traditional but thoroughly modern woman. Fans of The Great British Bake Off can't wait to get their hands on Mary Berry's Recipe for Life. Born in 1935, Mary has been teaching Britain how to cook for over half a century. Her far-reaching culinary career has taken her from recipe tester, cookery editor, author and entrepreneur to TV personality. Mary lives in Buckinghamshire with her husband Paul.
