8 Hildred, Stafford and Ewbank, Tim Arise Sir Jamie Oliver The Biography
UK John Blake 2007 Hardcover Excellent Excellent 24 Cm 
281pp & just too far over the 500g to go in a small satchel, good idea to add a title to the order & use up that postage. Jamie originally harbored dreams of pop stardom with his band Scarlet Division, but by the age of 16 decided to become a chef. After college he earned his stripes in France and then as a pastry chef before starting at the River Café, {we have several of the books available} where he really learned his trade. It was during a television documentary about the River Café that Jamie first caught the attention of the program's editors. Thanks to his on-screen charisma he was featured heavily in the finished documentary and the offers came flooding in. So 'The Naked Chef' was born. The program was a huge success, with an intimate and fresh approach to the role of television chef. Jamie's informal and playful demeanor, as well as his obvious passion and enthusiasm for food drew in a younger audience and revolutionized the traditional cooking program: cooking became cool! The subsequent television series and books gave Jamie fame and fortune the world over & he was then able to pursue the goal of healthy tasty food for schools. Tightly bound with 2 photo sections.

Don't want to break the bank with he hardcover? Here in paperback is the Glenfiddich Food Book of the Year, Koffmann's wonderful "Memories of Gascony" Here's our writeup from our hardback copy >>review - Having been lucky or mad enough to work with the Master, I just had to have his books. What was my surprise when I got sucked into Mr Koffmann's childhood memories of food and cooking. It s not only a brilliant cookbook, the stories are sometimes funny , sometimes moving. A real work of art. Love it. Thank you Monsieur Koffmann. Guardian review (well worth a google - In 1990, Koffmann wrote Memories of Gascony, reminiscences and recipes from the Oratoire accompanied by dewy photographs of the soft countryside. In it you will find his grandmother's recipe for walnut leaf aperitif (take 50 walnut leaves, 40g of orange peel, a litre of armagnac, a kilo of sugar and five litres of red wine; macerate for eight days, stirring twice a day; sieve, bottle, and store in a cool place for three months). It is both a sign of the excellence of its recipes, and of Koffmann's popularity, that a first edition of this volume, assuming you are able to track such a thing down, will now set you back up to £275. << Well ours isn't that much but it's worth that in enjoyment!

Australia Ironbark 1998 Paperback Very Good - Good None issued 23.5cm 
May was regularly selected as twelfth man for Australia, and holds the record for most appearances in this role. May was also known for being accident prone, a common theme in May's 1998 book 'Mayhem', a satirical, semi-autobiographical tour diary. This is an unusual book wherein May recollects his visit to the Subcontinent during the 87 world cup, in the form of a tour diary. Except, the names are all changed, some of the stories are true and some are exaggerated. he claims it's up to us to figure it out. A very funny book.
