Ripe: A Cook in the Orchard
The focus is on fruit in this book by London-based food writer Nigel Slater. Filled with inspiring images of fruit growing in the wild, it's both a cookbook and a series of love letters to everything from apples to gooseberries and strawberries.
Part of the most famous vegetarian family on the planet, photographer Mary McCartney has just launched this cookbook filled with uncomplicated and delicious vegetarian recipes that even a meat eater couldn't turn down. Inspired by her mother, Linda, the book includes everything from alternative Sunday roasts to spelt pancakes and shepherd's pie.
Eat London 2: All About Food
The 2012 edition of Terence Conran and Peter Prescott's book is packed full of the capital's best cafes, bars, butchers, delis and restaurants. It's not a guide (we've got you covered on that), bur rather more a celebration of everything London has to offer when it comes to great food. Also included are a selection of recipes from some of our favourite restaurants including Pizza East and Bocco di Lupo.
