Brilliant Bread

James Morton (Author)

Winner of the 2014 Guild of Food Writers Award for Cookery Book of the Year.
James Morton was surely the people's favourite to win 2012's Great British Bake Off series - with his Fairisle jumpers and eccentric showstoppers, this soft-spoken Scottish medical student won the viewers' hearts if not the trophy.
James's real passion is bread-making. He is fascinated by the science of it, the taste of it, the making of it. And in Brilliant Bread he communicates that passion to everyone, demystifying the often daunting process of "proper" bread making. James uses supermarket flour and instant yeast - you can save money by making your own bread. You don't even have to knead! It just takes a bit of patience and a few simple techniques.
Using step by step photos, James guides the reader through the how-to of dough making and shaping, with recipes ranging from basic loaves through flatbreads, sourdoughs, sweet doughs, buns, doughnuts, focaccia and pretzels. Inspiring and simple to follow, with James's no-nonsense advice and tips, this book will mean you never buy another sliced white loaf again.

The SuperJam Cookbook

Fraser Doherty (Author)

SuperJam is a delicious range of jams and marmalades created by young entrepreneur Fraser Doherty. They're 'super' because they're made with 'superfruits', such as cranberries and blueberries, and fruit juice rather than sugar, meaning they're healthier than your average pot of jam.

Fraser's cookbook is a juicy celebration of all things jammy. As well as being packed full of recipes for jams, marmalades, chutneys and jellies, the book offers more unusual ideas for spreads, such as Banana and Rum Curd, Dulce de Leche and Chilli Jam. And if for any reason you do have any leftover pots of preserves, it also contains over 25 ideas for how to turn your creations into irresistible puddings, from Bakewell Tart and Orange and Passion Fruit Trifle to Banoffee Cupcakes and Strawberry and White Chocolate Mousse.

Exquisitely designed and lavishly photographed, The SuperJam Cookbook will be a lovely gift or simply the perfect way to indulge your love of one of life's greatest comfort foods.

Little Girl Lost

Barbie Probert-Wright (Author) , Jean Ritchie (Author)

Two sisters. A broken childhood. A heartbreaking journey.

The extraordinary true story of surviving the unimaginable ...

In 1945, seven-year-old Barbie and her sister Eva were trapped, terrified, in wartorn Germany. With their father missing, and hundreds of miles from their mother, news of the approaching army left them confronted with an impossible choice: to face invasion, or to flee on foot.

Eva, aged nineteen, was determined to find her mother. For Barbie, twelve years younger, the journey was to be more perilous but, spurred on by her sister's courage and her desperate desire to be reunited with her mother, she joined Eva on a journey no child should ever have to endure.

Over three hundred miles across a country ravaged by a terrible war, they encountered unimaginable hardship, extraordinary courage and overwhelming generosity. Against all the odds, they survived. But neither sister came out of the journey unscathed ...

Sisters

Barbara Mortimer (Author)

On 3 September 1939, the Prime Minister declared that Britain was at war with Nazi Germany.

Thousands of young women, many of them barely out of school, were sent headlong into gruelling training regimes that would see them become wartime nurses.

Sisters features over 150 previously unpublished stories from the archives of the Royal College of Nursing. The vivid, poignant and riveting stories capture these nurses' incredible bravery and touching friendships.

Spectacles

Sue Perkins (Author)

Spectacles is the hilarious, creative and incredibly moving memoir from much loved comedian, writer and presenter Sue Perkins.


When I began writing this book, I went home to see if my mum had kept some of my stuff. What I found was that she hadn't kept some of it. She had kept all of it - every bus ticket, postcard, school report - from the moment I was born to the moment I finally had the confidence to turn round and say 'Why is our house full of this shit?'

Sadly, a recycling 'incident' destroyed the bulk of this archive. This has meant two things: firstly, Dear Reader, you will never get to see countless drawings of wizards, read a poem about corn on the cob, or marvel at the kilos of brown flowers I so lovingly pressed as a child. Secondly, it's left me with no choice but to actually write this thing myself.

This, my first ever book, will answer questions such as 'Is Mary Berry real?', 'Is it true you wear a surgical truss?' and 'Is a non-spherically symmetric gravitational pull from outside the observable universe responsible for some of the observed motion of large objects such as galactic clusters in the universe?'

Most of this book is true. I have, of course, amplified my more positive characteristics in an effort to make you like me.

Thank you for reading.

Praise for Spectacles

'Drama, tears and laughs - Spectacles has got it all. A brilliant, touching memoir suffused with love, it reminds you that life is best lived at wonky angles. I ADORED it' Jessie Burton, bestselling author of The Miniaturist

'Very funny . . . It seems there are two Sue Perkins: the TV one, who gabbles and pratfalls, and the sensitive one who aches. The first of course, exists to protect the second. They can both write. The first writes comedy, the second tragedy; in this sense, reading her memoir is very like meeting her'
Sunday Times


'It's a proper book . . . so well written. Tight & bright & full of inspiration'
Chris Evans, Radio 2
