Everyone loves an old-fashioned tea party. Mix-and-match crockery, bone-handled knives, lace and linen, teapots with cosies, sweet peas and roses, home baking and Victorian cocktails in tea cups - they're all back in vogue. Indoors by the fire in winter or outside in summer sunshine, hosts and guests can relax together with none of the stress or formality of a dinner party. Afternoon tea is the quintessential British tradition that has developed from its modest beginnings to become a much-loved celebration of indulgent pleasures. Try Carolyn Caldicott's perfect cucumber sandwich, Victoria sponge cake, rose petal jelly, English muffins, crumpets, Earl Grey tea with gin and lemon, 'the best chocolate cake you will ever taste' and much, much more.
Full of simple, yet innovative, travellers' favourites, World Street Food is the cookbook for all young travellers and all beginner cooks. Carolyn and Chris Caldicott, co-founders of London's World Food Cafe, recreate the tantalizing tastes of street stalls and night markets, trattorias and tea-houses, camp-fire cook-ups and comfort food in back-packer cafes. Carolyn's recipes simplify on-the-road classics, using ingredients that you don't have to go to the ends of the earth to find and providing clear cooking instructions. Chris's stunning photographs transport you back to the Mediterranean as you concoct aubergine parmigiana or piperrada sauce, to the Atacama Desert as you relish a pepper, potato and chorizo tortilla, to the heights of Table Mountain as you munch bunny chow, to a rooftop cafe overlooking the Ganges as you tuck into an easy biryani, to the pagoda cafes of Burma as you enjoy khao coconut rice noodles.
In Beside the Seaside Carolyn Caldicott's mouthwatering recipes for fish and shellfish, picnics and packed lunches, beachside barbecues, homemade ice-cream - and more - combine with Chris Caldicott's magical photographs to evoke glowing memories of long, lazy bucket-and-spade days, of crabbing and rock-pooling, sandcastles, seagulls and sunsets.
