Fried Ravioli with Cheese and Honey from Bitter Honey: Recipes and Stories from Sardinia by Letitia Clark. Photography by Matt Russell.

Bitter Honey In Bitter Honey, seasoned chef Letitia Clark invites us into her home on one of the most beautiful islands in the Mediterranean Sea—Sardinia. The recipes in this book do not take long to make, but you can taste the ethos behind every one of them—one which invites you to slow down, and nourish yourself with fresh food, friends and family. 

The importance of eating well is even more pronounced here on this forgotten island. Try your hand at Roasted eggplants with honey, mint, garlic and burrata, or a fresh, zesty salad of Celery, orange, anchovy and hazelnut, followed by Malloreddus (the shell-shaped pasta from the region) with crab, saffron and tomato.

Each recipe and the story behind it will transport you to the glittering, turquoise waters and laid-back lifestyle of this Italian paradise. With beautiful design, photography, full-colour illustrations and joyful anecdotes throughout, Bitter Honey is a vacation, a cookbook and a window onto a covetable lifestyle in the sun—all rolled into one.

Cold Sour Tomato Soup

Cold Sour Tomato Soup excerpted from Fire, Smoke, Green by Martin Nordin.

InFire Smoke Green by Martin Nordin Martin Nordin’s second book, he brings us a host of mouthwatering, modern vegetarian recipes, using the most elemental and ancient method of cooking: fire. Not just a barbecue cookbook, Fire, Smoke, Green is broken up into seven chapters that cover everything you need to know about making great food over the flame: from grilling directly onto fire, to cooking with indirect fire, smoked recipes, and even wood-fired pizza

Atmospheric photography and charming illustrations throughout bring you something other than your average vegetarian cookbook—as lovers of Martin’s first book Green Burgers will attest, his approach to meat-free cooking is anything but boring. Try the Roasted and smoked potatoes with beer-caramelized onions; the Fennel roots with shiitake, green onion, buckwheat and herb oil; or Harissa-marinated sweet potato with grilled cabbage leaves and black dukkah. Or if you still can’t get enough of the burger recipes, why not try the Zucchini and mungbean burgers with sriracha mayonnaise and furikake, washed down with a smoky Mezcal with grilled grapefruit.

Black Axe MangalBlack Axe Mangal is one of the most innovative and unconventional restaurants operating in London at the moment. What began as a six-week pop-up in the backyard of a Copenhagen nightclub is now a 20-seat restaurant on the edge of a roundabout in North London. Although small, Chef Lee Tiernan’s riotous space has attracted lines of in-the-know food lovers, global critics and the world’s best chefs.

Like the eponymous restaurant, Black Axe Mangal showcases a variety of explosive flavours and underused ingredients, with open-fire cooking and classic techniques. Readers are introduced to the three pillars of Tiernan’s cooking: smoking, grilling, and breads. With step-by-step explanations on key techniques, mostly photographed in Tiernan’s home kitchen and garden, fans of the restaurant will finally have the opportunity to learn the secrets behind the restaurant’s most iconic dishes.

All of Black Axe Mangal’s signature recipes are featured—from their famous flatbreads to the Pig’s Cheek and Prune Doughnuts, Aubergine and Ricotta Flatbread, Peanut and Foie Gras Bars, and Tiernan’s own version of the Crispy Pancake. There are also dishes from the earlier Danish pop-up, as well as guest recipes like Matty Matheson’s Return of the Mac and the BAM Whiskey Sourz created by the British bartending legend Mr. Lyan.

Black Axe Mangal is typified by Tiernan himself—funny, honest…and a little bit sweary. His passion is felt throughout the book, and it is a passion to make truly delicious food, no holds barred, on his own terms. Tiernan sticks by a rule of not having rules—making what he wants, changing it up, combining different flavours and influences from international cuisines, with just one aim: to never be mediocre. It is this honesty and unrestricted creativity that has become the backbone of Black Axe Mangal.
