Synopsis

Offal The Fifth Quarter by Anissa Helou

Anissa Helou's classic work, The Fifth Quarter, first published in 2004, is now re-issued as Offal, updated and expanded with the addition of striking colour food photography. This is the only book currently in print in the English language dedicated exclusively to the subject of offal - a subject currently enjoying a resurgence in popularity and fashion - in all its many and surprising forms. From foie gras to cod's roe and from sheep's head to testicles, Offal draws on recipes and traditions from all over the world.

Reviews

A must for any true offal enthusiast, and a fascinating reference work. * The Independent * Some cooks are monomaniacs, which is why Anissa Helou's The Fifth Quarter, an offal cookbook will be a hit. * The Guardian * Adventurous palates will relish the cooking phenomenon of nose-to-tail. * Wallpaper * [This] elegantly designed book on offal and off-cuts of meat is uncompromising in its approach. Some of her recipes are not for the squeamish, but there are more approachable ones too. * The Spectator * Anyone with even the slightest taste for offal should rush out and buy The Fifth Quarter. This wonderful book takes in everything from foie gras and chicken wings to fish tripe soup, abalone and goose feet. -- Tom Parker Bowles * Mail on Sunday *

Magda North

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Their sending me my first book to review 18 months ago re-awakened my fondness for reading, since then I have purchased some real gems.
