The Ethicurean philosophy is simple: eat local, celebrate native foods, live well. The Ethicurean is quietly changing the face of modern British cooking: all from a walled garden in the heart of the Mendip Hills. The Ethicurean Cookbook follows a year in their magnificent kitchen and garden, and celebrates the greatest food, drink and traditions of this fair land. The combinations are electric: confit rabbit is paired with lovage breadcrumbs, cured roe deer flirts with wood sorrel, and foraged nettle soup is fortified by a young Caerphilly. The salads are as fresh as a daisy: honeyed walnuts nestle amongst beetroot carpaccio, rich curd cheese is balanced by delicate cucumber. And the comfort of pies and puds - pork and juniper pie, Eccles cakes with Dorset Blue Vinny - is only enhanced by the apple juice, cider and beer poured in equal measure. With 120 recipes and a year of seasonal inspiration in photographs and words, Ethicureanism is a new British cooking manifesto.

A memorable book about the path food travels from garden to table A celebration of life together, a tribute to an utterly unique garden, a wonderfully idiosyncratic guide for cooks and gardeners interested in exploring the possibilities of farm-to-table living—To Eat is all of these things and more. In 1974, Joe Eck and Wayne Winterrowd moved from Boston to southern Vermont, where they became the proprietors of a twenty-eight-acre patch of wilderness. The land was forested, overgrown, and wild, complete with a stream. Today, North Hill's seven carefully cultivated acres—open to visitors during the warmer months—are an internationally renowned garden. In the intervening years, both the garden and the gardening books (A Year at North Hill, Living Seasonally, Our Life in Gardens) Eck and Winterrowd created together have been acclaimed in many forms, including in the pages of The New York Times. They were at work on To Eat—which also includes recipes from the renowned chef and restaurateur Beatrice Tosti di Valminuta and beautiful illustrations from their long-time collaborator Bobbi Angell—when Winterrowd passed away, in 2010. Informative, funny, and moving, the delights within—a runaway bull; a recipe for crisp, fatty chicarrones; a personal history of the Egyptian onion; a hymn to the magic of lettuce—are sure to make To Eat a book readers return to again and again.

'Delightful... Pavey writes with warmth and spirit, and brings this space to life' Penelope Lively'Captivating and grounded... If this book was not as much a pleasure to write as it is to read, I'll eat my hat and gardening glove' ObserverAfter years spent living amid the thrum of London, Ruth Pavey yearned to reconnect with the British countryside and she endeavoured to realise her long-held dream of planting a wood.Touring to the West Country in the late 1990s, Pavey found herself in the Somerset Levels. On seeing this expanse of reclaimed land under its wide, soft skies she was struck by its beauty and set-out to plant a wood, tree by tree. She bought four acres, and over the years transformed them into a haven where woodland plants and creatures could flourish an emblem of enduring life in a changeable world.A Wood of One's Own is the story of how she grew to understand and then shape this derelict land into an enduring legacy a verdant landscape rich with wildlife. Interwoven with Pavey's candid descriptions of the practical challenges she faced are forays into the Levels' local history, as well as thoughtful portraits of its inhabitants both past and present.Accompanied throughout by the author's evocative hand-drawn illustrations, A Wood of One's Own is a lyrical, beguiling and inspiring story; a potent reminder of nature's delicate balance, and its comforting and abiding presence.

To see a meadow in bloom is a great delight--it's alive and teeming with life, mysterious, dynamic and seemingly out of our control . . . So Christopher Lloyd began his book on meadows, first published in 2004. No one knew more about meadow gardening than Lloyd, who spent much of his long life developing the flowering tapestries in his garden at Great Dixter, in East Sussex. In Meadows, he imparted that lifetime's learning, exploring the development and management of meadow areas, explaining how to establish a meadow in a garden setting, and describing the hundreds of beautiful grasses, bulbs, and perennials and annuals that thrive in different meadow conditions. Lloyd's classic text remains at the heart of this new book. However, here Fergus Garrett, Christopher Lloyd's head gardener and his successor at Great Dixter, greatly expands and develops the theme of meadow gardening. Garrett's introduction is accompanied by brand new photography by Carol Casselden. This edition is completely redesigned.

Benton End Remembered

In 1940, Cedric Morris and Arthur Lett-Haines, both established artists with international reputations who had become disillusioned with the commercial aspects of the art world, moved to a country house named Benton End, overlooking the River Brett on the outskirts of Hadleigh, Suffolk. The house had been uninhabited for fifteen years, and what they found there was ramshackle but charming: a capacious sixteenth-century farmhouse standing amid three acres of walled gardens lost beneath brambles and elder trees. They quickly made Benton End both their home and the new premises of the East Anglian School of Painting and Drawing which they had founded together in Dedham, Essex a few years earlier. They would run the unique school there together for nearly forty years. This beautifully illustrated book--edited by a former student of the school, who has brought together contributions and memories from generations of her fellow students--celebrates Benton End, the school, and its proprietors and students. Full of familiar figures who were regular visitors, including Francis Bacon, Ronald Blythe, Benjamin Britten, Peter Pears, Elizabeth David, Lucian Freud, and Vita Sackville-West, the book brings to life the history of an idiosyncratic, powerfully influential educational institution.
