3 Alexander, Stephanie A Cook's Life
Lantern (Penguin) 2012 Hardcover Excellent Very Good 24 Cm 
362pp, 2 photo sections, 800g to post. With the Cook's Companion front and centre in half a million kitchens, Stephanie Alexander is the very definition of a household name. Each day thousands turn to her 'food bible' for the most reliable recipes and advice. But before Stephanie Alexander penned a word for the emerging food media, let alone for the Cook's Companion, she had spent decades avidly documenting food experiences. Shaped by her mother's dedication to good food and her father's love of reading, she trained as a librarian and all the while observed, assessed and re-created the dishes she loved. Her monthly university allowance rarely lasted more than a week - all spent on pan-fried flounder and chestnut Mont Blanc. She was seduced over pain Poîlane while working as an au pair in Paris, and later over ackee and saltfish in London. In 1966, with no formal culinary training and a newborn baby, but brimming with confidence and sheer determination, she opened Jamaica House with her first husband. the personal toll was great and it was many years until she emerged on the restaurant scene again. Stephanie's Restaurant would become part of Melbourne food folklore, permanently raising the bar for restaurant dining in Australia. At the time of its opening, in 1976, a salad to most people meant iceberg lettuce, no-one had heard of goat's cheese and ginger came in a tin. Over the next twenty-one years, in her quest for the sort of produce she had enjoyed while living and travelling in Europe, Stephanie championed small local suppliers or grew it herself. Her indefatigable determination and single-minded vision have influenced - and sometimes intimidated - a generation of chefs, cooks and diners. and now her Kitchen Garden Foundation is inspiring tens of thousands of primary school children across Australia to grow and cook their own food. A Cook's Life is a very personal account of one woman's uncompromising commitment to good food, and of how it shaped her life and changed the eating habits of a nation.

In his lively close-up portrait of Adrià, award-winning food writer Colman Andrews traces this groundbreaking chef 's rise from resort- hotel dishwasher to culinary deity, and the evolution of El Bulli from a German-owned beach bar into the establishment voted annually by an international jury to be the world's best restaurant. 321pp in as new condition.

11 Antony Worrall Thompson Real Family Food
UK Mitchell Beazley Limited 2005 Hardcover Excellent Excellent 26cm 
175 clean white well bound pp, review > Antony Worrall Thompson (TV cookshow host) communicates the "healthy/bonded/respected/loving family message throughout his books- he has an excellent book on the GI diet, and here he looks at family meals as the core of a happy, healthy family. In 'Real Family Food' he makes the valid point that food is not just something to be quickly shovelled down throats, but a focus for family bonding and an opportunity to communicate with one another, play with one another, and respect one another. He begins by setting out his house rules - meal times are respected as an opportunity to be together and talk about the day. This is not so much a manifesto as a discussion topic in its own right. If you're trying to wean your children off fast foods and fizzy drinks, this is something you can use as a starting point to forge an understanding of the quality and value of food... My comment - I've browsed a LOT of cookbooks & this one is really a very clear, engaging & attractive work on a topic dear to many hearts, you won't be disappointed, you'll be impressed!

12 Baker, Jenny Simply Fish
Faber & Faber, London 1988 Paperback Good None issued 21.5cm 
Basic fish cookery, on how to select, identify and cook all types of fish. B+W line drawings. 333 pages. enthusiastic review > I would strongly recommend this recipe book to anyone who wants to eat more fish. Whilst Rick Stein has managed to catch the nation's imagination and encourage a renaissance in seafood cuisine, and for encyclopedic knowledge I would recommend Jane Grigson's Fish Book, what Jenny Baker has managed to do is collect a book full of delicious recipes for most fish you may encounter that may be attempted in an average kitchen, with normal ingredients, within a reasonable length of time. This is one of those special cookery books which may be used everyday, not just for special occasions. Pages all clean % well bound, cover's a bit aged & some cook has enjoyed the benefits of this great little reference. Looks like a bit of a unique title in Aust.

14 Bareham, Lindsey The Fish Store
UK Michael Joseph 2006 1st Edition Hardcover Very Good Very Good 24cm Signed by Author
When her sons inherited their father's childhood home, once a commercial building for storing and packing pilchards, in a Cornish fishing village, Lindsey Bareham thought it would be a nice idea to record some of the recipes and memories of this extraordinary place. It started as a notebook for her sons' eyes only, with lists of favourite ways of cooking mackerel, monkfish and sole and how to make mayonnaise to go with the gift of a handsome crab or crayfish but then it took on its own momentum and became this very special book, full of recollections and anecdotes and fabulous holiday food. First Edition of 410pp & 800g to post, with four photo sections of Cornwall then and now. Recipes and memories, anecdotes and recollections. Author's signature on the title page in pink marker.

15 Beard, James The James Beard Celebration Cookbook
USA William Morrow & Company 1990 Hardcover Very Good Very Good 26.5cm 
415 crisp pp, 1.2 kg to post. Edited by Barbara Kafka. Recently a booksite foolishly listed a "Top 100 cookbooks", well anytime you do something along those lines it's bound to turn into a bun fight isn't it. James Beard had no problem earning his spot in that list with a wealth of support. Perhaps not as well known in Australia as he should be - James Andrew Beard (May 5, 1903 - January 21, 1985) was an American chef and food writer & the central figure in the story of the establishment of a gourmet American food culture. He trained initially as a singer and actor but not having much luck in the theatre, he and his friend, Bill Rhodes, capitalized on the cocktail party craze by opening a catering company, "Hors d'Oeuvre, Inc.", which led to the publication of Beard's first cookbook, Hors D'Oeuvre and Canapés. During the 50s Beard made his name as 'James Beard', the brand name, the face and belly of American gastronomy. Julia Child accurately sums up Beard's personal life in a brief description: "Beard was the quintessential American cook. Well-educated and well-traveled during his eighty-two years, he was familiar with many cuisines but he remained fundamentally American. He was a big man, over six feet tall, with a big belly, and huge hands. An endearing and always lively teacher, he loved people, loved his work, loved gossip, loved to eat, loved a good time." This book is of course a marvellous gathering of his ideas, thoughts, memories & food by Beard & his friends. And, like the very best of cookbooks, you can read it like a novel. I 'm sure if you buy it you'll count your blessing for such a wise addition to your foodie library.
