Christmas Giveaway Bonana #5 - Three Coffee Table Cookbooks
Perisana by Sabrina Ghayour
“Middle Eastern cookery is often shrouded in mystery – it’s the stuff of Arabian nights. It is perceived as exotic and unknown. But this is not a true reflection of the simple and honest cuisine that it is. Perhaps the misconception is due to something being lost in translation… if a dish has a Persian, Turkish or Arabic name, you might think ‘Well, that must be really hard to make…’ when, in essence, there is little complexity involved in many of the recipes. No mess, no fuss, just simple and delicious food – that’s what I like to eat, that’s what I like to cook for my family and friends and that’s just what I want to share with you. I hope this book shows you that the food, flavours and ingredients of the Middle East are accessible and uncomplicated, and therefore far more achievable than you might have previously believed.”

A Change of Appetite by Diana Henry
“I have undergone a change of appetite. I’m eating better, I feel better, I have more energy. My way forward has been to reduce refined carbohydrates and significantly increase the range of veg I eat. You might use the knowledge in this book and settle on a slightly different path. Even if you’re not bothered about health you’ll eat deliciously. The biggest surprise in making this change has been how much friends and family like the food. There are lots of big front-of-mouth flavours in these dishes, such as chilli, ginger and lime, the kind of thing you want when you aren’t eating starchy or rich food. It’s food that makes you feel revitalized and energetic. Deprivation is not on the menu. If you cook the dishes in this book you’ll eat really well and happily and you shouldn’t notice that you’re eating more ‘healthily’; neither will your friends, on being served any of the menus, think you’ve become a health food nut. This is good food for people who love eating. It’s a happy bonus that it’s good for you as well.”
