Our pick of the lat­est recipe books avail­able for the Spring...

Not a cook­book as such, more a love let­ter to a stately home and its his­tory of en­ter­tain­ing.

The book tells the story of four real life week­ends – from 1866 to 1936 – when the great and the good gath­ered at High­clere to change the world in some large or small part. Each week­end show­cases the life of the house, both up­stairs with the rich and fa­mous, and be­low stairs with the staff and em­ploy­ees. Lady Carnar­von also ex­plores how menus were, and still are now, put to­gether with the chef, what were the de rigueur cock­tails of the day (and why) – and how to make them at home wher­ever you are. What do you cook for the peo­ple you love? Asked this ques­tion, 100 of Bri­tain’s food heroes have shared their most beloved recipes to make this ex­tra­or­di­nary cook­book. Nigella Law­son divulges how to bake her cho­co­late Guin­ness cake, Rick Stein fries up shrimp and dill frit­ters with Ouzo, and Yo­tam Ot­tolenghi serves up pea and mint cro­quettes. Th­ese are just a few of the in­cred­i­ble recipes pro­vided by the best and bright­est on the Bri­tish food scene, in­clud­ing chefs such as Ray­mond Blanc, Gor­don Ramsay, Jamie Oliver, Delia Smith, James Martin, Nigel Slater, Thomasina Miers, Mark Hix, Ja­son Ather­ton, Marco Pierre White, Clau­dia Ro­den and more. Fol­low­ing the best­selling Hog comes Prime. This fan­tas­tic book is an ode to all things beef, from the ul­ti­mate author­ity in meat cook­ery. Beef is the star of many peo­ple’s all-time favourite meals – from steak or a cheese­burger to roast beef with all the trim­mings. In Prime, beef ex­pert Richard H. Turner will im­part his recipes for th­ese time­less clas­sics, lie salt beef and smoked brisket as well as shar­ing new ways in which to en­joy this fan­tas­tic in­gre­di­ent in all it’s forms – his Burmese beef curry is not to be missed. Cov­er­ing every cut, every style of prepa­ra­tion and with recipes from the world over – not to men­tion fea­tures on bovine breeds, butcher­ing, buy­ing your meat.
