    The Kitchen Yearbook

    In good condition - has markings from previous use - due to differing weights in books, postage maybe adjusted at checkout. Throughout the year, as the seasons change so do our needs and tastes for food. A bleak Winter conjures up thoughts of steaming soups and piping hot stews. Spring brings new flavours, crisp vegetables, fish and poultry. The lazy salad days of Summer mean long evenings and eating outdoors. The rich harvests of Autumn bring new fruits, fish and game. Inevitably, the nights grow shorter, the cycle moves on and Winter frost returns. These natural events are taken for granted, but even in today's urbanized society, our tastes are still guided by the natural elements and our ancient instincts: rich, warming food to keep out the chill and sustain us in our work; the fresh, healthful Spring vegetables; in warmer days, cool salads; and as the harvest comes in, with abundant produce, it also brings our deep-rooted and traditional enjoyment of all the natural gifts the land still provides.

    MasterChef Australia

    In good condition - has markings from use - due to differing weights in books, postage maybe adjusted at checkout. More than four million viewers tuned in to watch Julie Goodwin, a Central Coast mum, win the coveted title of Australia's first MasterChef. But for six nights a week, over three months to Top Twenty MasterChef contestants had been battling to outcook each other under extreme kitchen conditions, often with unfamiliar ingredients, and in record time. You watched them sweating, stirring, whisking, frying, crying, hugging and laughing their way through the competition. You saw them either leapfrogging through to the final week, or leaving the competition, as their numbers were whittled down from twenty to two. In this much-anticipated book, the Top Twenty contestants share recipes they created on the show. There are mystery box and invention test winners galore - from Julie's lemon diva cupcakes to Chris's controversial roast pig head - along with standout audition dishes such as Lucas's Singapore chilli mud crab. They also share behind-the-scenes stories and culinary tips and tricks. They explain what they did right and what they did wrong - and what they would have done differently, if they'd had a second chance. You'll find recipes here for Adriano Zumbo's demonically difficult pressure-test desserts - the croquembouche, the pannacotta, and the now-infamous mousse cake. This cookbook contains sections on pantry basics, kitchen equipment, knife skills, and plating up like a professional, as well as classic recipes every wannabe chef should have in their repertoire. Be inspired in the kitchen, and cook like a MasterChef!

    Jamie's Comfort Food Scrumptious Happy Classics by Jamie Oliver

    In very good condition - has markings from use - due to differing weights in books, postage maybe adjusted at checkout. Comfort means so many things to different people, and when you apply that to food, the volume of emotions it brings out is incredible. Without doubt, comfort food is completely subjective - it's about smells, sounds and tastes. It's about recipes that really hit the spot at a certain time, and have the capacity to pull out explicit feelings and old memories, as well as creating new ones and passing that joy on to the next generation. Comfort food has the power to make you feel safe, secure, fulfilled, excited, loved, even a bit giddy! True comfort food can wrap its arms around you and give you a great big hug, or can tickle you pink and make you laugh. It can be about the seasons, your childhood memories, your school food, the trips your grandparents took you on, your first takeaway, your first date - it's all about what a particular dish means to you. In a bowl, on a plate, handheld, wrapped in newspaper, eaten straight from the fridge or even from a tin, whether you're with a big group of loved ones, in a cosy kitchen with your family or curled up on the sofa on your own, comfort food can be elegant and nurturing, or it can be downright dirty.
