Lisa and Helen have travelled across China in search of amazing street food. The recipes are truly accessible – easy for anyone to make in the comfort of their own kitchen. Ken Hom This beautiful book offers a real insight into the street food cultures of China and vividly evokes the smells and sounds of the markets. It's the closest you may get to experiencing Beijing street food without actually being there, smelling the mix of aromatic spices, caramelized apples, barbecuing meats and steaming dumplings, with clouds of smoke and noisy bustle all around you, and red lanterns glowing above. Over 100 recipes and a wealth of stories and insight into cooking methods bring this cuisine to life. All recipes have been carefully chosen to be achievable for the western cook. Helen and Lisa Tse have set out to encapsulate that sense of excitement, awe, wonder and hunger for these morsels of street food: from soft fluffy bao, to hot fried chicken, from piping hot bowls of noodles, to coal-roasted squid, delicate tea eggs and bubble tea, this is food to truly excite the appetite and awaken a sense of adventure in the kitchen. With a foreword from the master of Chinese cooking, Ken Hom, this is the essential book for the foodie bookshelf.

An eclectic collection of 11 global walks and hikes, the book includes destinations on every continent but Antarctica. From one-day saunters to two-week odysseys, readers will find the in-depth story behind each trail, combined with detailed maps and a visual feast of archival and contemporary images from contributors located around the world. Climb the Stairs of Repentance to the top of Mount Sinai, the Holy Peak of Moses, or retrace the journey of the stampeders of the Klondike Gold Rush as you scale the Golden Stairs of the Chilkoot Trail. Catch the “Long Look” across El Despoblado as you stand at the South Rim of the Chisos Mountains in Texas. Walk in the Dreaming tracks of the local Arrente as you trek the Larapinta Trail along the spine of Central Australia’s ancient MacDonnell Ranges. Or follow delightful paths through sheep paddocks and woodlands filled with bluebells and birdsong along Great Britain’s Cotswold Way. But it isn’t all about the hikes and the history. There is plenty of practical information on Internet resources and recommended reading along with suggestions on what to do before or after the hike. Learn about local fauna, regional food specialties and unique customs – like the sensuous rituals linked with maté tea in Patagonia or the grizzly tradition of the SourToe Cocktail in Dawson City, Yukon. So lace up those boots and get moving. Or put your feet up and read all about it from the cozy comfort of your living room. The choice is entirely yours.
