New World Sourdough, Bryan Ford


We saw Instagram flooded with sourdough posts during the lockdown, but perfecting the art of bread-making can bring more fulfilment than just a few ‘likes’. Bryan Ford (who also happens to have a massive Instagram following) takes the reader on a beginner’s course on bread-making, starting from the basics to the tips and techniques that will ensure a perfect loaf every single time.

Flavour, Yotam Ottloneghi and Ixta Belfrage


Discover new ways to turn everyday, simple vegetables into the most flavourful and delectable dishes. The chapters are separated into three sections: methods, pairing and produce, where you’ll discover how to get the most out of your produce, creating recipes such as spicy mushroom lasagne, Romano pepper schnitzels and aubergine dumplings alla Parmigiana. Packed with stunning photography, this is one book you’ll enjoy returning to time after time.
