  • Cooking Like Mummyji

    Vicky Bhogul

    Cooking Like Mummyji was first published to great acclaim and garnered thousands of loyal fans in 2003 but has been unavailable for almost 10 years. It won the Jeremy Round Award for Best First Book at the Guild of Food Writers Awards and was short-listed for Best Book at the Glenfiddich Awards.

    Now back in a fully revised, redesigned edition with newly commissioned photography the author reveals in over 100 recipes the secrets of British Asian food.  These are the recipes from her family and friends; Indian cooking but adapted using British ingredients. Vicky says ‘our home food is much simpler than the food you find in Indian restaurants. We use very few spices. The same ingredients are generally used for everything but, like musical notes, can be combined in many different ways to creat beautiful melodies.’ Many of the names of her dishes will be familiar to afficiandos of high-street Indian restaurants but Vicky’s versions are healthier, with fresher, more vivid flavours.

  • Cuisine Nicoise

    Jacques Medecin

    Niçoise cuisine is the food of the Mediterranean. It is not only a delight to the palate, but is known to have many health benefits. Its recipes are in tune with the natural cycle of the year using in-season fruits, herbs and vegetables, as well as plenty of fish. But the majority of the recipes are merely guides – unless you are baking – offering a relaxed flexibility with ingredients and seasonings suited to cooks of all levels of experience.

    This, Jacques Médecin’s legendary book, first published in 1972 and now reissued for the first time in hardback offers an infectiously enthusiastic guide to the cookery of his city.

New in Aviation

  • Nimrod: Rise and Fall – Hardback (signed by Tony Blackman)

    Tony Blackman

    The scrapping of the Nimrod programme has been one of the most controversial events in the military aviation world for many a year.

    For most of its operational life, from 1969 to date, its contribution to the defence of the realm and its role in offensive duties was, of necessity, often shrouded in secrecy. It was the ‘eye in the sky’ which was absolutely vital to a host of activities – from anti-submarine and anti-surface warfare, to support of land battles throughout the world, to the Falklands campaign, to combating drug-running, the Nimrod’s unsung role was paramount.

    And now the UK is bereft of such a multi-tasking reconnaissance aircraft.

  • A History of the Mediterranean Air War, 1940-1945, Volume Three (signed by Christopher Shores and Giovanni Massimello)

    Christopher Shores, Giovanni Massimello, Russell Guest, Frank Olynyk and Winfried Bock

    The third volume in this series returns to November 1942 to explain the background to the first major Anglo-American venture – Operation Torch, the invasion of French North Africa. It deals with the fratricidal combats which followed the initial landings in Morocco and Algeria for several days. It then considers the efforts made – unsuccessfully in the event – to reach northern Tunisia before the Germans and Italians could get there to forestall the possibility of an attack from the west on the rear of the Afrika Korps forces, then beginning their retreat from El Alamein.

  • Harrier Boys Volume 2 (signed by Bob Marston)

The book begins with explanations of the mature concept of operations with the Harrier GR3 in the Cold War. It then progresses through the evolution of Harrier II, starting with the GR5, and updates to the Sea Harrier, while the potential battles to be fought necessitated ever-changing tactics and technology.

  • Oswald Boelcke (signed)

    RG Head

    Oswald Boelcke was Germany’s first ace in World War One with a total of forty victories. His character, inspirational leadership, organisational genius, development of air-to-air tactics and impact on aerial doctrine are all reasons why Boelcke remains an important figure in the history of air warfare.

    In this definitive biography RG Head explores why Oswald Boelcke deserves consideration as the most important fighter pilot of the 20th century and beyond; but also for setting the standard in military aviation flying. This book will appeal to enthusiasts of the German air force, military aviation in general and World War One in particular.

  • Vulcan Boys (multi-signed)

    This book is signed by Tony Blackman (the author), Anthony Wright, and three veterans. 

    The Vulcan, the second of the three V bombers built to guard the UK during the Cold War has become an aviation icon like the Spitfire, its delta shape is instantly recognisable as is the howling noise it makes when the engines are opened for take-off. Vulcan Boys is the first Vulcan book recounted completely first hand by the operators themselves.

  • Tornado Boys (multi-signed)

    This book is signed by author, Ian Hall and contributors Wally Grout, David Robertson, Gordon Niven and Les Hendry. 

    Tornado Boys is the latest in the ever-popular ‘Boys’ series, and differs from earlier titles. With the introduction of female pilots to the RAF in 1994, the Tornado was among the first aircraft to be flown by both men and women. This is acknowledged in the book with a chapter written by one female pilot. Another aspect that makes this book different from the rest of the series is that it covers an aircraft which is still in active service, currently as a key player in Middle East operations. With focus on the GR1/GR4 versions of the Tornado (and not the F3 interceptor), readers will enjoy fascinating insights on what it is like to operate this multi-role bomber/reconnaissance aircraft against the backdrop of modern-day scenarios.
