Tapas and sherry bars are everywhere: Berlin, London, LA, Paris, Munich. Now it's time to bring the trend home and serve this glorious marriage of flavours to friends. In A Sherry & A Little Plate of Tapas Kay Plunkett-Hogge tells the story of tapas and its beloved companion, sherry, and offers 80 easy-to-cook-at-home recipes. The book begins by exploring the mysteries of sherry, one of the world's oldest wines, considering the five key types, how they're made and how they're served, with tips on the best food and sherry matches and a selection of sherry cocktails. Kay then plunges into the tapas, with chapters on cold tapas - hams and olives and their like - and latillas; montaditos or 'mounted' tapas; pintxos, or 'things on sticks'; and on cooked tapas, with chapters on vegetables, eggs and dairy, seafood and meat. Kay has even created some delicious sherry-based desserts.

Grains and pulses, nuts and seeds: recipes from breads and tortillas to pancakes and pies. In this timely new book Christine McFadden explores the way in which flour has been a staple part of our diet, and provides a comprehensive look at the alternatives to traditional wheat flour. With an increasing and at times bewildering choice of flours available online and in shops, this book follows a usable A–Z format, providing a CV of sorts for each flour (including plant source, gluten content, protein content, flavour profile and how best to use). Each of the flours featured is accompanied by suggested recipes from Christine's kitchen, and these recipes demonstrate the often underestimated ways in which flour is used. Flours range from cassava and quinoa to cricket flour and coffee flour, with delicious recipes such as cheddar and chilli cornbread (using amaranth flour), salted chocolate tart with buckwheat and walnut pastry, spicy onion pancakes (using moong dal) and spring lamb pot pies (with tradition plain wheat flour). Recipes are accompanied by beautiful photography to bring the dishes to life.
