Foodie fun on the Book Show with Jenny Crwys-Williams

Audrey at Home (Memories of my Mother's Kitchen) by Luca Dotti

"Audrey at Home: Memories of My Mother’s Kitchen is the latest book by Audrey Hepburn’s youngest son, Luca Dotti. In his second book about his mother, Luca takes us on a more intimate journey navigating the reader through Audrey’s kitchen as we sample her favorite recipes and listen to stories about Audrey after her departure from Hollywood. In Audrey at Home, Luca describes his mother as having had three careers: actress, mother, and humanitarian, and in this retelling of his childhood we explore Audrey’s life as a Roman mother. Her recipes aren’t merely scraps of papers collected over the years but pages out of a diary detailing her life by the friends she kept, the places she traveled and meals she prepared for her family at home."

A Taste of Isreal by NIDA DEGUTIENĖ

"Experienced businesswoman, devoted food blogger, writer and freelance journalist Nida Degutiene’s ‘A Taste of Israel’ is finally available for the first time in English. Hailing from Lithuania, Nida arrived in Israel in 2009 as the wife of the Lithuanian Ambassador to Israel and South Africa and immediately fell in love with Jewish food, culture and traditions."

More Life's A Beach Cottage by Neil Roake and Craig Scott

"More Life’s a Beach Cottage is the third cookery book in the series featuring a collection of best holiday feasting recipes. It is as beautiful and quirky and set to follow in the successful footsteps of previous publications.

Inside the covers you will find exquisite photography, and delectably different recipes, including:

• Homemade Cabnah Tomato and Chai Seed Salad • 4 Melon and Prawn Salad with Asian Dressing • Baked Chicken Paté with Gooseberries, Thyme and Crushed Hazelnuts • Badass Bacon Jam, Baked Brie with Blueberries • Chocolate Éclairs with Pomegranate Jewels"

My Kind of Food by John Torode

"My Kind of Food by MasterChef’s John Torode ... Its intended destiny is to be a well-thumbed family favourite which is used throughout the whole week, from quick midweek suppers to Sunday dinner and lazy weekend brunches. The chapters set out this wide appeal, usefully categorising the recipes in seven different sections: Brunch and Lunch, For the Family, In a Rush, Stores and Leftovers, All Outside, Leave Overnight and To Finish."
