Homemade Takeaways

How to Make Your Favourite Takeaway . . . But Better

By Rob Allison

  • Hardback
  • £18.99

A collection of homemade and mouth-watering recipes inspired by Britain's favourite takeaways.

From burger joints to pizza parlours, our towns and cities sparkle with the neon lights of takeaways. But among the deliciously exotic aromas of frying noodles, rotating meats and simmering spices, linger the toxic combinations of salt and chemicals that cause heart burn, obesity and diabetes.

HOMEMADE TAKEAWAYS injects the nation's favourite takeaways with new inspiration by recreating them using fresh produce and proper cooking methods. This is by no means a health book or a diet book, but by simply being able to control the quality of ingredients you use to cook the recipes, this book will make infinitely healthier food than you will find in any takeaway. Rob Allison uses his wealth of experience in the food industry to create mouth-watering and flavoursome food for any occasion.

Biographical Notes

He also contributed as a home economist on Nigella Laswon's TV series and is currently working on a new BBC1 food programme.

A genuinely brilliant idea for a book and beautifully executed to boot. — Nigella Lawson
DIY takeaways sound counter-intuitive - surely the one good thing about a takeaway is the fact that someone else has made it for you. But what if you live in the sticks, a 30-minute drive from your nearest fast-food joint, and fancy a hamburger? Homemade Takeaways provides the answer. It's an inspired collection of 100 recipes recreating late-night addictions such as massaman curry, margherita pizza, doner kebabs, Cornish pasties, miso soup and crispy duck. — Carolyn Hart, Daily Telegraph
Takeway - a word to make taste buds happy. if only we could create those flavours at home... Well now we can, thanks to Homemade Takeaways, a new cookbook by Rob Allison. Making chow mein or kebabs at home means they're (a little) better for you and will save you money. But don't just take our word for it, fan Nigella Lawson has posted the book cover on Instagram. And apologies in advance to your local chicken shop, once you've made the chicken wings, you won't go back. — Jenny Stallard, Metro

Last of the Giants

Mick Wall
Authors:
Mick Wall

Many millions of words have already been written about Guns N' Roses, the old line-up, the new line-up. But none of them have ever really gotten to the truth. Which is this: Guns N' Roses has always been a band out of time, the Last of the Giants. They are what every rock band since the Rolling Stones has tried and nearly always failed to be: dangerous. At a time when smiling, MTV-friendly, safe-sex, just-say-no Bon Jovi was the biggest band in the world, here was a band that seemed to have leapt straight out of the coke-smothered pages of the original, golden-age, late-sixties rock scene.'Live like a suicide', the band used to say when they all lived together in the Hell House, their notorious LA home. And this is where Mick Wall first met them, and became part of their inner circle, before famously being denounced by name by Axl Rose in the song 'Get in the Ring'.But this book isn't about settling old scores. Written with the clear head that 25 years later brings you, this is a celebration of Guns N' Roses the band, and of Axl Rose the frontman who really is that thing we so desperately want him to be: the last of the truly extraordinary, all-time great, no apologies, no explanations, no giving-a-shit rock stars. The last of his kind.
