'I'm so excited about this beautiful book. Delicious, cozy recipes that are pure comfort on a plate' Fearne Cotton Secondary school teacher and pub landlord's daughter Candice Brown stole the show with her amazing bakes and weekly lipstick change in The Great British Bake Off tent of 2016. This year the Sunday Times columnist will be bringing out her first cookbook - all about home comforts. These are the recipes Candice learned to bake from her nan and mum, recipes close to her heart, that should be served up as a big generous slice - and preferably on a vintage plate if you have one.
This authoritative new title from health and wellness expert Renee Elliott is a modern encyclopedia of 99 brilliant ingredients that will help you use them in the best possible and easiest way. Carefully curated by Renee in close collaboration with the buyers of pioneering organic supermarket Planet Organic, it's a mix of great ordinary ingredients that you may be taking for granted - like apples, nuts and beans - and ingredients you may have heard of but haven't yet included in your diet. Eating well as Renee says is 'unavoidably important' for she believes 'many of the illnesses that plague us today, such as obesity, diabetes and heart disease are the result of poor eating habits'. The look and feel of this important book will appeal to both millennials and longstanding foodies and for all those looking for an invaluable guide for eating well and living better.

'The first time I met Renee Elliott I was watching her at panel discussion on start-up businesses in the wellbeing industry. Renee is a wonderful public speaker, and as the pioneer of Planet Organic, she is also an inspiring and hugely experienced entrepreneur. I knew immediately that she was someone I wanted to work with and I was delighted when she agreed to write this book for us. We at Pavilion have learnt a tremendous amount while working on this book and are incredibly proud of What to Eat and How to Eat It. Renee’s take on health and the wellness industry is unique, and her knowledge is second to none. An encyclopaedia of 99 super foods, Renee explains each of their benefits and the best way to prepare and cook with them in delicious recipes. Renée is an established, informative and authentic voice and I am absolutely thrilled to publish What to Eat and How to Eat It.' ~ Katie Cowan, Publisher, Pavilion Books July 2017 Lifestyle and Health Book of the Month.

Indian food is an internationally popular cuisine, yet, unfairly, it is often considered to be heavy, rich and indulgent. With more people than ever before turning to healthy home cooking there has never been a better time for a fresh and lighter take on Indian food - one that Mira is creating with her vibrant and healthy cooking style. Inspired by her mother and grandmother's cooking, Mira Manek's style of food is a modern interpretation of the Indian classics, creating utterly delicious and naturally healthy dishes. Whether you want to cook a Saffron & Lime Chia Pot, an Indian Summer Salad, a Thali, a Masala Almond Milk or a Mango Shrikhand Cheesecake, Saffron Soul combines the best of the core elements of Indian cooking with original health-promoting twists. As well as offering the best and most naturally healthy Gujarati recipes, Mira also recreates some perennial favourites, replacing traditionally used grains and sugar with more nutritious ingredients such as millet, chia and jaggery, and cutting down on oils and fats, to make her dishes even healthier.
