Five go Feasting

Famously good recipes inspired by the Famous Five stories

By Josh Sutton

  • E-Book
  • £P.O.R.

A jolly good present for grown-up fans of The Famous Five, this cookbook brings their classic adventures back to life - filled with 80 recipes inspired by the books, faithful line drawings and quotes from the stories.

The Famous Five were a clever lot: every island adventure and countryside romp began with a hearty breakfast, was interspersed with rollicking good picnics and ended with supper at Aunt Fanny's - all washed down with lashings of ginger beer. Now you can revisit Julian, Dick, Anne, George and Timmy's favourite food and drink with these 80 recipes faithful to the books, accompanied by familiar illustrations and quotes from the stories.

Featuring:
- Chapter One: A Jolly Good Breakfast - e.g. fried bread and sausage sandwiches
- Chapter Two: Perfect Picnics - e.g. sausage rolls, scotch eggs, jammy buns and drop scones
- Chapter Three: Scrumptious Suppers - e.g. meat pie, chicken stew, milk pudding and marmalade apple pie
- Chapter Four: Cracking Cakes and Tasty Treats - e.g. sticky gingerbread and mint humbugs
- Chapter Five: Lashings of Delicious Drinks - e.g. orangeade and ginger beer

Five Days of Fog

Anna Freeman
Authors:
Anna Freeman

'My mum always said, a fistful of rings is as good as a knuckleduster' As the Great Smog falls over London in 1952, Florrie Palmer has a choice to make. Will she stay with the Cutters, a gang of female criminals who have terrorized London for years and are led by her own mother? Or leave it all behind to make a safer, duller life with the man she loves? And what will she do if she's too crooked to go straight, and too good to go bad? Over the next five days, Florrie will have to find her own path and the courage to stumble along it - in a fog so thick that she can't see her own feet. Following the last days of a crumbling female gang in post-war London, this is a story of family, of love, of finding your way, and of deciphering a route through the greyest areas of morality.

Michel Roux jr

"Don't be afraid of offal. Some of the greatest of all French classics involve organ meats such as brains and sweetbreads." - Michel Roux Jr Celebrated chef Michel Roux Jr passionately believes that we are missing out. At a time when food shortage is a global concern, health fears over processed meat are making headlines and the cost of living is higher than ever, he can't understand our reluctance to utilise every part of an animal's carcass. Brains, organs, intestines, hooves - items that are traditionally viewed with distaste in our society - are an integral part of French and world cuisine. With this book, the two-star Michelin chef hopes to change the way we think about offal and demonstrate that, with a little time and effort, it can be used to produce enticing and delicious food to impress friends and feed families. The book will contain recipes ranging from the simple sweetbreads Michel's mother fed him as a child, to the more adventurous dishes in the style served at his award-winning restaurants. Dishes range from La Salade Aveyronnaise (Warm salad with sweetbreads and Roquefort) or Soupe aux abattis (Giblet soup), to Cervelle de veau zingara (Calves' brains with zingara) or Langue de boefu au persil et cares (Salted ox tongue with caper parsley sauce).
