  • A Century of British Cooking

    Marguerite Patten

    SPECIAL CENTENARY EDITION

    “If you only buy one cookery book this year it has to be Marguerite Patten’s Century of British Cooking.” Women

    “Elegantly presented… for those who enjoy a taste for nostalgia or love curious culinary snippets.” The Independent

    2015 would have been the year the redoubtable Marguerite Patten celebrated her 100th birthday. Sadly, she died on the 4th June 2015, just five months short of her birthday. In her honour, Grub Street is reissuing a new edition of the first book we published by Marguerite back in 1999, her comprehensive Century of British Cooking. In this book, each chapter covers one decade of the 20th century giving both history and recipes.

  • A History of the Mediterranean Air War, 1940-1945, Volume One (Signed)

    Christopher Shores

    Giovanni Massimello and Russell Guest

    This book is signed by Christopher Shores.

    It is now more than 40 years since “Fighters over the Desert” was published, and nearly as long since this was followed by “Fighters over Tunisia”. Both volumes have long been out of print and collectors’ items, but, despite much prompting, Christopher Shores has resolutely refused to permit their reprinting until he amassed so much more information. He has also long nursed a desire to expand the coverage to encompass the operations of the other types of aircraft involved in this interesting and important theatre of war – the bombers, reconnaissance aircraft and maritime units. Further, it is his intention to extend the period covered to include the later operations over Sicily, Italy, the Aegean area, the Balkans and Southern Europe. This then represents the first volume of a seminal series dealing with all these aspects and areas, which will also tie in with the earlier ‘Grub Street’ volumes which he and his collaborators have produced.

  • A History of the Mediterranean Air War, 1940-1945, Volume Three

    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.

  • A History of the Mediterranean Air War, 1940-1945, Volume Two (signed)

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

    This book is signed by Christopher Shores.  

    The first volume of this series dealt with the initial 19 months of the air war over the Western Desert of North Africa. This volume picks up the story as the 8th Army, following its hard-fought success in Operation Crusader, was forced back to the Gazala area, roughly mid-way between the Cyrenaican/Tripolitanian border of Libya and the frontier with Egypt. It covers the lull prior to the disastrous defeat of the 8th Army in June 1942 and the loss of the important port and fortress of Tobruk.

  • A Turkish Cookbook

    Arto der Haroutunian

    All Arto der Haroutunian’s twelve cookbooks written in the 1980s became classics; it was his belief that the rich culinary tradition of the Middle East is the main source of many of our Western cuisines and his books were intended as an introduction to that tradition.

    A Turkish Cookbook is regarded as the seminal work on the subject but has been out of print for over twenty five years. It is a lovingly written recipe book packed with traditional stories, poems and sayings. Turkey is fast becoming one of the most popular tourist destinations, and while famous for its scenic beauty and ancient sites, it undoubtedly owes much of its new found popularity to the quality and character of its food.
