Cookery

Cookery

From cocktails to canapés, we have an amazing selection of cookbooks in the bookshop, including books for vegetarian and vegans. We love cooking and almost all the bookshops we stock are tried and tested, so do get in touch if you need a recommendation!

Cook, Eat, Repeat

Cook, Eat, Repeat

Hardback £26.00

We LOVE Nigella here at the bookshop and – with a whole chapter dedicated to anchovies! – this new book is another must-have addition to your kitchen shelf.

Cook, Eat, Repeat is a delicious and delightful combination of recipes intertwined with narrative essays about food, all written in Nigella’s engaging and insightful prose. Whether asking ‘What is a Recipe?’ or declaring death to the Guilty Pleasure, Nigella’s wisdom about food and life comes to the fore, with tasty new recipes that readers will want to return to again and again.

Flavour

Flavour

Hardback £27.00

We own a lot of well-worn Ottolenghi books, pages dog-eared with fantasy menus, splashed with oil, and stained with sumac.

In Flavour, Yotam Ottolenghi and Ixta Belfrage offer innovative vegetable dishes that deliver new ingredient combinations and techniques to excite and inspire. Packed with signature colourful photography, Flavour is full of sure-fire hits, such as Aubergine Dumplings alla Parmigiana, Celeriac and Goat’s Cheese ‘Tacos’, Spicy Mushroom Lasagne and Romano Pepper Schnitzel. This is the next-level approach to vegetable cooking that Ottolenghi fans have been craving.

Roasting Tin Around the World

Roasting Tin Around the World

Hardback £16.99

We are huge fans of Rukmini Iyer’s Roasting Tin series and were very excited to tuck into this new addition which reworks dishes from around the world into quick and easy one-tin meals. These recipes are straight-forward without sacrificing on flavour. We particularly love the Korean-Style Aubergines with Spring Onions & Sesame Rice and Crispy Halloumi, Roasted Carrots, Walnuts and Cannellini Beans.

The Hand & Flowers Cookbook

The Hand & Flowers Cookbook

Hardback £40

Tom Kerridge is such a star. This is the first book to come from the kitchen of his pub, The Hand & Flowers. It is the first (and only) pub in the world to acquire two Michelin stars, for its innovative, sophisticated dishes that masterfully reinvent and elevate British classics for the twenty-first century. In this book you will find: Roast hog with salt-baked potatoes and apple sauce; Smoked haddock omelette; and Chocolate and ale cake with salted caramel and muscovado ice cream.

Mary Berry's Simple Comforts

Bread Therapy: The Mindful Art of Baking Bread

Bread Therapy: The Mindful Art of Baking Bread

Hardback £12.99

Lots of us have been using bread as therapy this past year (thank you to everyone who has offered to give us their sourdough starter)! This book is a tribute to the mindful, restorative power of baking bread. It celebrates bread making as a way of understanding ourselves better, learning important life lessons and making positive changes to our mental and physical wellbeing. It features eight simple bread recipes to get you started on your bread-making journey.

What our customers say

This is the best bookshop I know. A small shop, packed with stock, it is run by helpful and knowledgeable staff, who obviously enjoy reading, and are willing and able to advise customers. Orders arrive within 24 hours. Book selection for children is particularly good.

My favourite bookshop in the UK. All the staff have a real enthusiasm for books, are always willing to advise and help, never patronise and even welcome my dog. What more could anyone ask?
