One minute I was starving, the next binging, the next starving. I dieted, took pills, liquids, potions and lotions, I even turned to hours of exercise after I ate, like, anything. Then one day it happened. I put my hands up in the air and decided enough was enough.

Just when you thought that street food pop-ups, build-your-own-tasting-menus and fish cooked with nothing but lime and love was enough, that crazy culinary world has thrown another trend into the pot. The brainy dinner.

Weaning the World Off Salt

Dr Paul Zollinger-Read | Posted 12.05.2014 | UK Lifestyle
Dr Paul Zollinger-Read

Eating habits in childhood influence eating patterns in later life. Liking the taste of salty food is actually a learned taste preference. Therefore, those who eat little salt taste the natural flavours of food a lot more than those who have a lot of salt. The current focus is wrong.

Supper Clubs have revolutionised London's dining scene: rather than cooking in a restaurant, enterprising chefs host in their homes, where, without the risks and overheads of a restaurant, they tend toward the experimental, with food that you'd be hard-pressed to find elsewhere.

Philip Dundas

I find it hard to put my finger on the city or its people. Not quite Italian or Slavic, there is rude mixture of genetic throwback which makes the Venetians fiery and hot-blooded and saturnine and big faced. These resourceful, mercantile amphibians rule their intriguing and mysterious city with contempt and indifference to outsiders.

V.C. Linde

Sud de France is as much a foodie travelog as it is a cookbook, there are lots of notes about the region which is wonderfully written and interesting to read. The familiarity that Conran has with this area of France shines through, the insight is thorough and while reading you feel that you have seen and tasted the area.

This is a really innovative cookbook and so a lot of the recipes are quite unusual, they have tackled this brilliantly and each recipes has a note with it that either explains why a particular ingredient was chosen, where the idea came from or why it works so well.

Obviously, as a woman it's possible that I could be a little put off my a cookbook called Manly Food but as Cave sets it up at the very beginning as "hearty, bold, adventurous and downright greedy" it's clear that gender has nothing to do with it (I'm certainly both hearty and greedy...)

In the introduction Tim Wilson tells the story of Ginger Pig which is both inspirational and also really funny. I am a huge fan of the Ginger Pig shops and the Hackney branch was my usual butcher while I lived in London, so I can testify to how good their produce is.

Garganelli.... wow! Chef mentioned to me seven pieces to a portion, after spending 15minutes doing one portion I realised it wasn't as easy as chef had demonstrated to me earlier. 22 portions later chef pre-dressed a dish of the garganelli pre-service so we all knew how it should look.
