The Butch Bakery Cookbook by David Arrick
The Butch Bakery Cookbook by David Arrick
Men like cakes as well!! Just not with pink sparkly icing and wafer flowers all over them. This book bridges that gap really well. It gives the guys a great little reference book for baking as well as a collection of seriously manly (read boozy) recipies.

Arrick goes through lots of basics in the begining - 'Boot Camp' and also includes an equipment 'Supply List'. The wording is slightly different to a regular cook book, it's been 'maned up' for example, we have the 'Ingredient Roster' 'Plan of Attack' and 'Construction'. He also includes 'Butch's Baking Lesson' at the end of some recipies - 'Theres a reason theres a recipie - so follow it!'.

The recipies are well… Read more
Fifty Sheds of Grey (Fifty Sheds 1) by C. T. Grey

I sniggered my way through this book. Full of puns and double entendre - this is a quick read designed to tickle places that the original 50SOG can't reach.
Fashion Illustration, 1930 to 1970: From Harper's &hellip by Marnie Fogg
5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Beautiful, 5 Sep 2014
This is a beautiful book. Comprised of front covers and illustrations within Harpers Bazar magazine - this book covers from 1930 - 1970 when fashion illustration was, arguably, at it's most stunning and prevelant. The hardback book contains glossy pages on a good weight of paper meaning this feels like a quality publication. Each chapter represents a decade and is packed with illistrations both black and white and full colour on each page. Most pages also contain a paragraph on the illustration in question. It is not only a wonderful book to have a a coffee table book - it is also a very interesting and engaging book to simply sit and enjoy.
