The 1960’s Scrapbook – compiled by Robert Opie – large scrapbook size hardback book filled with full-colour images from the 1960’s – posters, record covers, advertisements, toys , fashion - absolutely wonderful nostalgia. Global Publishing
Maggie’s Verjuice Cookbook – by the wonderful Maggie Beer – using verjuice in cooking – loads of recipes -
'I just can't help myself when it comes to verjuice! I use it in place of lemon juice or vinegar to bring the gentlest lift of flavour to everything – from grilled vegetables, meat or fish, pastas, risottos, salads and hearty one-pot dishes to delicate custards, old-fashioned puddings and decadent tarts. I can't imagine cooking without it.'
