Wintersweet by Tammy Donroe
Wintersweet by Tammy Donroe
This is a beautiful, big book full of mouthwatering recipes using the best of winter's ingredients. Chapters on classics such as apples and pears are followed by more exotic fare such as persimmons and pomegranates. With the cold weather drawing in, I can't wait to work my way through so many delicious desserts. I think I'll start with the amazing chocolate pomegranate meringue on the cover.
There are a lot of baking books on the market but if you're looking for something new and exciting to bake this winter, this is definitely the book for you.

You would'nt think that there would be anything new to write about Indian food with the huge number of books out there. The food in this book is the kind of Indian food I want to eat, authentic, regional and delicious. Dividing it's chapters by flavour makes planning a meal easy and interesting. Everything I've cooked so far has been delicious.
The book itself is a thing of beauty from the gorgeous cover to the design and photography inside, it would be as happy on your coffee table as your kitchen shelves.
Limoncello and Linen Water by Tessa Kiros
I have loved Tessa's books for years. They are beautifully designed and the recipes are delicious and work. Limoncello and Linenwater is no exception. Dedicated to Nonna's, it is full of their wise words and sayings. The food in this book is typical of northern Italy, an area that is often over looked in Italian cookery books. There was great excitement in our house when my partner (whose family live in Piedmonte) saw the recipe for Bagna Cauda, a dish often made for him by his Nonna.
This is a book that has pride of place on my shelf.
