'Full of recipes you want to cook' - Diana Henry 'Not only a collection of fabulous recipes but an inspiring guide to flavours and ingredients and how they work together' - Nigella Lawson This is a cookbook for people who are looking for inspiration rather than instruction; one that will make you look at familiar ingredients in a new light, and welcome new ones with open arms. Here Felicity Cloake offers an ingredient for each letter of the alphabet - twenty-six of her favourite things to eat, and recipes using them which will change the way that you think about these ingredients forever. In the Blue Cheese chapter, a Roquefort and honey cheesecake with walnut and pear; in Caramel, roast duck with miso caramel and in Rhubarb, rhubarb gin granita. Yet there are also more straightforward dishes, no less original or delicious: beetroot noodles with goat's cheese, toasted walnuts and baby kale; chorizo baked potatoes with avocado crema; slow roast tomato pasta with lemon salt, ricotta and basil. And there are many more playful takes on favourite dishes: salted peanut caramel crispy cakes, aloo tikki scotch eggs, jelly cherry jubilee, buttermilk onion rings. This is a book to shake you out of your recipe rut and make you start to think about food, and cook it in an entirely new way.

From anorexia, bingeing and clean eating, to social media, yo-yo dieting and size zero, this book explores these complex conditions from a range of angles, offering valuable insights and hope. In this inspiring, impeccably researched book, renowned writer and broadcaster Emma Woolf says, 'Eating disorders cause untold misery and can affect anyone at any time of life. As someone who has lived through anorexia and recovery, I receive emails every day from those desperate for guidance. The A to Z of Eating Disorders helps to demystify disordered eating and sets you back on the path to a happy, healthy relationship with food.' Praise for The A to Z of Eating Disorders 'Detailed but to the point, Emma Woolf provides insight, wisdom and practical solutions: The A to Z of Eating Disorders is a must-have for anyone with or caring for someone with an eating disorder.' Renee McGregor, performance and clinical dietitian I've just been reading your book again for the second time this week, aka The A-Z of Eating Disorders. It's truly an amazing book and its purpose is amazing and I'm just so happy someone has confronted these topics and can educate others because anorexia is such a complex illness which can be hard for 'outsiders' to understand. Thank you, Ellie, a reader
