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

Since falling in love with cooking as a Stagiere in a Parisian hotel, Rob Allison has collaborated with numerous authors on hugely successful cookbooks, including THE ULTIMATE STUDENT COOKBOOK and Gok Wan's GOK COOKS CHINESE. 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

Zoe Clark-Coates

Written by one of the world's leading baby loss support experts, The Baby Loss Guide is designed to help you navigate this complex issue. Whether you have personally encountered loss, or are supporting people through this harrowing time, this book provides practical and compassionate advice. Zoe and her husband Andy have personally faced the loss of five babies. Out of their experiences came the charity The Mariposa Trust (more often known by its primary division Saying Goodbye), offering support to thousands of grieving parents and relatives around the world each week. In her first bestselling book Saying Goodbye Zoe wrote a moving account of their experiences and how they found a way through loss.In The Baby Loss Guide Zoe provides a supportive and practical guide to walk people through their darkest days of suffering and gives them hope for the future. The first half of the book answers the many questions those who encounter loss ask themselves and others, and until now have resulted in people spending hours exploring the internet to gain answers and insight. It is interlaced with personal stories from both men and women who have been there, and tackles the many myths, taboos and assumptions around loss. It also provides clear guidance and advice on how to navigate life following your world imploding, such as: How do I return to work? How do I know if or when I should try again for more children? How do I communicate with my partner about loss?The second half of the book offers 60-days of practical and compassionate support. Whether someone's loss be recent or historic, this support will be a wonderful gift, and will help the person walk the scary path of grief. Zoe's friendly and down to earth approach means she removes the often over used medical terminology, and this makes The Baby Loss Guide readable, easy to absorb and a vital source of information and help.

Xeelee: Redemption

Stephen Baxter
Authors:
Stephen Baxter

Michael Poole finds himself in a very strange landscape . . . This is the centre of the Galaxy. And in a history without war with the humans, the Xeelee have had time to built an immense structure here. The Xeelee Belt has a radius ten thousand times Earth's orbital distance. It is a light year in circumference. If it was set in the solar system it would be out in the Oort Cloud, among the comets - but circling the sun. If it was at rest it would have a surface area equivalent to about thirty billion Earths. But it is not at rest: it rotates at near lightspeed. And because of relativistic effects, distances are compressed for inhabitants of the Belt, and time drastically slowed.The purpose of the Belt is to preserve a community of Xeelee into the very far future, when they will be able to tap dark energy, a universe-spanning antigravity field, for their own purposes. But with time the Belt has attracted populations of lesser species, here for the immense surface area, the unending energy flows. Poole, Miriam and their party, having followed the Ghosts, must explore the artefact and survive encounters with its strange inhabitants - before Poole, at last, finds the Xeelee who led the destruction of Earth...
