      The Scottish Farmers' Market Cookbook

      by Nick. Paul

      Scotland has an enviable reputation for producing some of the finest food in the world. Langoustines from the West Coast of Scotland are eaten at tables all over Europe; the Scottish Aberdeen Angus has long been the byword for quality meat; Scottish soft raspberries and tayberries are considered the finest available, and so the list goes on! Scottish kitchens are moving away from the global produce offered by supermarkets and are returning to locally-produced, seasonal food. Local growers and producers are supplying markets from the Borders up to Orkney and they are becoming increasingly popular. Farmers' markets in Scotland are a mix of greengrocer, butcher, garden-centre, off-licence, game dealer, delicatessan and more. The buyer has the opportunity to meet and speak to each farmer about the produce, making the shopping experience enjoyable and personal. The Scottish Farners' Market Cookbook is a collection of recipes from producers and stallholders and reflects the produce that can be found at these Markets.;The recipes are simple and delicious and range from Beef sausages with Wild Mushrooms poached in Red Wine, to Pork and Apple with Ginger Jam; from Beetroot and Goats Cheese Starter to Apple Water Ice. As well as delicious, easy-to-use recipes, the Scottish Farmers' Market Cookbook includes sections on seasonal growth, an availability guide, a producers list, farmers' market venues, and conversion chart for weights and measures. This cookbook demonstrates that fine cooking need not be difficult and shopping at the Farmers' Market for all your ingredients will produce the best in taste and guarantee a fresh, quality meal.

      Caribbean & African Cookery

      by Rosamund. Grant

      Every island of the Caribbean has its own character and so not surprisingly does the food from their kitchens. Indeed when Christopher Columbus first arrived in the Carribean he is said to have remarked that he saw so many islands he hardly knew which to go to first. So variety is the spice of life in Caribbean cooking. It is a delightfully eclectic blend of tastes and textures, influenced by ingredients and cooking techniques from Europe, Asia and Africa; a diversity born out of the mixture of races - Chinese, Portuguese, British, Indian, Amerindians and Africans whose travels and histories are the heart of the Caribbean.;The essence of good Caribbean cuisine is in using fresh vegetables and fruit, and seasoning meats and fish in herbs and spices. Rosamund Grant's introduction to this cuisine presents recipes for traditional dishes as well as some created using ideas and ingredients borrowed from other cultures.

      Charcuterie and French Pork Cookery

      by Jane. Grigson

      Every town in France has at least one charcutier, whose windows are dressed with astonishing displays of good food; pates, terrines, galantines, jambon, saucissions sec and boudins. The charcutier will also sell olives, anchovies, condiments as well as various salads of his own creation, making a visit the perfect stop to assemble picnics and impromptu meals. But the real skill of the charcutier lies in his transformation of the pig into an array of delicacies; a trade which goes back at least as far as classical Rome, when Gaul was famed for its hams.;First published in 1969 but unavailable for many years, Jane Grigson's "Charcuterie and French Pork Cookery" is a guidebook and a recipe book. She describes every type of charcuterie available for purchase and how to make them yourself. She describes how to braise, roast, pot-roast and stew all the cuts of pork, how to make terrines, how to cure your own ham and make your own sausages.
