The Hot Chicken Project Aaron Turner Hardie Grant Books
Victorian chef Aaron Turner had the enviable job of travelling to the home of fried chicken – Nashville, USA – and testing all the fried chicken he could find. Turner has been obsessed with the dish his whole life and the book is part love letter, part pilgrimage. It includes 40 recipes so you can recreate the dishes yourself.
Vegan Japan Easy Tim Anderson Hardie Grant Books
At the other end of the scale, Londonbased chef Tim Anderson tries to convince us that the country that gave us salmon sashimi can do vegan. And surprisingly, he does an OK job. Think mushroom ramen with vegetables and fried tofu, Cauliflower Katsu Curry and Vegetable Tempura.
