This week Aldo Zilli is trying some recipes from Smoked: How To Cure And Prepare Meat, Seafood, Vegetables, Fruit And More (New Holland Publishers), with a lovely double-page extract in the Daily Express Saturday magazine (16 May):

"Smoking was initially used as a preservation method but nowadays, it is seen as a popular way of adding flavour to fish and meat. For the recipes opposite I recommend you have a go. You should also try making your own pastrami at least once as it’s very rewarding. Good luck!" - Aldo Zilli

Double-page extract from Mexican Craving by Ben Milbourne (New Holland Publishers) in the Daily Express Saturday magazine 26 July, with a review by Aldo Zilli:

"I was intrigued to find out more about Mexican food and judging by this book I won’t be disappointed by its flavours. I’ve already tried the quesadilla and empanada recipes, and the fish section had a few interesting combinations that worked really well, too. I would recommend the tuna tequila slammer while the scallops and hazelnuts proved to be another great combo. I also loved the dessert section" - Aldo Zilli

A double-page extract from A Homegrown Table (New Holland Publishers) ran in the Daily Express Saturday magazine (19 July), with a review from chef Aldo Zilli:

"I was really struck by how good this book looks. Not only have they done a great design job on the cover, it feels great when you pick it up, too. You shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, I know, but this one is inspiring. My favourite part was the foraging tips.
It is very diverse, with recipes ranging from Middle Eastern cuisine to classics such as the steak opposite… I also like the fact that there is a chapter about breakfast, a very important meal that we are all guilty of forgetting about. Thank you, Emma for producing this beautiful book." – Aldo Zilli

21st August 2013

Review of The Girl Who Loved Camellias: The Life and Legend of Marie Duplessis by Julie Kavanagh (Knopf) in The Sunday Times

“It is,” said Proust, “a work which goes straight to the heart.” He was talking about La Traviata, which was first performed in Venice in 1853 and is still performed around the world 160 years on. The plot is as unlikely as the plots of most operas and as full of mad, melodramatic twists. But its story, it is clear from this extraordinary book, isn’t half as melodramatic as the life that inspired it.

21st August 2013

London Dawn to Dusk (Jenny Oulton & David Paterson - New Holland) is reviewed in the Daily Mail :

Lovely 4* review of Penguins: Close Encounters by David Tipling (New Holland Publishers) in the 25 May issue of Amateur Photographer magazine:

Baby penguins. Adult penguins. Penguin families. Swimming penguins. Walking penguins. Penguins come in all modes imaginable in this book from David Tipling. Taken on trips to the Antarctic, his photography offers views of the interactions of several species of penguin, creating some charming imagery. Tipling’s captions are informative and lively, and he goes into detail about how he put the images together. Behind-the-scenes shots show how close the photographers were able to get to the animals. In one caption Tipling notes: ‘It is impossible not to smile in the company of penguins’. Based on this evidence, it’s hard to dispute.
