River Cottage - Bread [DVD]
Got this along with the bread handbook and have watched it several times and tried many of the various recipes out. Sometimes it is just nice to watch things than to read about it in a book. As with most of the River cottage DVD collections, a lot of the recipes and bits are directly from the various shows that have been broadcast on TV, but also other bits are filmed exclusively for the DVD.
Sea Survival: A Manual by Dougal Robertson
Sea Survival: A Manual by Dougal Robertson
I purchased this to replace a copy I used to keep on my little yacht (I had big aspirations of sailing the world). I have yet to find a sea survival guide that can inform you of how to survive for an extended period of time at sea. The maps in my opinion made the book as it gave a survivor an indication of shipping lanes, rainfall and of course currents. They are now very dated as is some of the survival advice.
Purchased more to replace a 'gap' in my sailing bookshelf and to bring back memories of my sailing days.

Being a big fan of river cottage (and meat) I really couldn't wait when I found out that this book was due out. Like all the other river cottage handbooks, Smoking and curing is very well written and researched and has me aching to get into the kitchen to give things a try.
