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.

16 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!

17 Armitage, Ethel A Country Garden
London Country Life 1936 Hardcover Excellent-very Good Very Good 22.5cm John Farleigh 
I have seen copies in excess of two hundred pounds so this is a great buy, intact dj with just a few nicks to bottom. Book has a collection of charming lineart by John Farleigh (24 in all incl violets, magnolias, cabbages & roses) The contents represent a beautiful journal of a year in a gardener's life in pre-war Britain. Armitage is also the author of "Garden & hedgerow" "Flower and Leaf" . Armitage must have been a force to be reckoned with - this extract focuses on the German's ideals of planting under the Nazis - quote - Ethel Armitage, in her book A County Garden, published just before World War Two, wrote of ground elder as 'a veritable Hun, overrun-ning any place it can get near ... [it] is no true Briton at all, having begun its career here as an undesirable alien'." The plant in the garden, the ground elder, is a microcosm of the threat of invasion by Nazi Germany, so that Armitage's garden is a metonym for Britain itself. . . . well indeed much of Britain's landscape & garden history is amazing so good for her to adopt the Churchillian stance. A really great floraholic's addition for their library.
