In the 19th century, when books were comparatively rare and expensive, encyclopedic compendiums about managing households became very popular. The most notable example in this genre is Isabella Beeton´s Book of Household Management, first published in 1861. Three years later, Edward Abbott, who described himself as an ´´Australian Aristologist”, published The English and Australian Cookery Book, which has the subtitle Cookery for the many, as well as the for the ‘upper ten thousand’. The author explains his intentions in the preface: ´´A writer of repute (Dugald Stewart) has said that cookery and the fine arts are analogous. I cannot discover the resemblance; but I do contend that there is affinity between hospitality and cookery, for the former would be unavailable without the aid of the latter. I offer no excuse, therefore, for the publication of this small matter-of-fact work on the cookery of the present day, for it will be found practically useful to persons in every situation in life - to the English housewife, and to her prototype in the Colonies. The following pages will show the British and Colonial mode of rendering the various articles that God has been pleased to give us for our use, nutritious and wholesome, as well as palatable to our tastes.” Narrated by Phil Benson, Elizabeth Chambers, David Prickett ,Sash Elliott, Peter Tucker, Sarah Backholer and Denis Daly. 1.

Truth is rarely pure and never simple... Selchester Castle in 1953 sits quiet and near-empty, its corridors echoing with glories of the past. Or so it seems to intelligence officer Hugo Hawksworth, wounded on a secret mission and now reluctantly assuming an altogether less perilous role at Selchester. The Castle´s faded grandeur hides a web of secrets and scandals - the Earl has been missing for seven years, lost without a trace since the night he left his guests and walked out into a blizzard. When a skeleton is uncovered beneath the flagstones of the Old Chapel, the police produce a suspect and declare the case closed. Hugo is not convinced. With the help of the spirited Freya Wryton, the Earl´s niece, he is drawn back into active service, and the ancient town of Selchester is dragged into the intrigues and conspiracies of the Cold War era. With a touch of Downton Abbey, a whisper of Agatha Christie and a nod to Le Carré, A Man of Some Repute is the first book in this delightfully classic and witty murder mystery series. 1.

Where can you read about a monstrous cheese big enough to hold a girl of 13 inside? Or that the invention of the bicycle directly, and poorly, impacted sales of cheddar? Or that some of the first cheese makers hid gold coins inside their wheels of dairy as a sales tool?Brethren, the writer calls you this because he hopes that you are ‘cheese-minded’ like himself.This classic and charming book, a timeless love letter to English cheeses, was first published in 1937, newly rediscovered. It is a treasure trove of wonderful anecdotes including the tale of the monstrous cheese big enough to hold a 13-year-old inside, the Stilton that purred like a cat and the famous cheese maker in Manchester who selected which Cheshire cheese to sell based on where the mice had been nibbling, ‘as they were the best judges of a good cheese’.Sir John Squire, a notable journalist of the time, collected together ‘a galaxy of talent’, with the aim of making this ‘one of the most delightful and entertaining gift books that has ever been published’. Each of the distinguished 10 contributors champion an individual cheese, setting forward their passionate and compelling arguments, celebrating the differences and delights of each type. Through their explorations, the chequered beauties of the English landscape unfolds.It will certainly whet the appetite for English cheese, for that is ultimately what matters most, as, after all, ‘the only way to learn about cheese is to eat it’. 1.

Breaking Up with Barrett is the first of six books about the Philadelphia-based, wildly handsome English brothers who are all on the lookout for love. (Except Alex. He´s a womanizing manwhore. And maybe Stratton because he´s wicked hot but super awkward around girls.) Barrett English, aka ´´the Shark´´, is the fair-haired firstborn of the English brothers and the CEO of the oldest, most prestigious investment banking firm in Philadelphia. He rules the boardroom with an iron fist, refusing to take no for an answer and always getting his way. Emily Edwards, a first-year doctoral student at the University of Pennsylvania, grew up in the gatehouse on the outskirts of Barrett´s childhood estate. The daughter of his family´s gardener and housekeeper, she was always looking through the window of privilege but forced to remember her place at the very periphery of the kingdom. When business partners suggest that a fiancée might soften Barrett´s image over business dinners, he approaches Emily for the job of fiancée. And while love isn´t necessarily on Barrett´s radar, he begins to realize that Emily always has been. But will his take-no-prisoners boardroom tactics work on the heart of the woman he loves? 1.

Seduced by Stratton is the fourth of six books about the Philadelphia-based, wildly-handsome English brothers who are all on the lookout for love. (Except for Barrett, Fitz and Alex, because they´re taken. And Weston, who is still riding the ugly-love roller coaster with one of the Atwell sisters.) Stratton English, the hottest, youngest, most devastatingly handsome CFO in Philadelphia, has a problem: women make him nervous. Really nervous. Catastrophically nervous. Socially awkward to an extreme, he´s apt to blurt out the first thing that comes to mind, and it´s rarely something a woman wants to hear. Quietly in love with his neighbor, Amy, he has no idea how to make his move, but he is committed to figuring out a way to seduce her. Valeria Campanile, who Stratton knows through one of his four brothers, is a PhD candidate who moonlights as a dance instructor on the side. Ironically, even though Val studies courtship rituals, she can´t seem to find herself courted. Pursued by boys from the ´´old neighborhood´´ who promise to overlook the fact that she´s so smart, she longs to meet someone who romances her mind as well as her heart. When Stratton helps Valeria with a financial problem, she is anxious to return the favor. But will Stratton, who needs Val´s expertise to win Amy, find himself seducing Val instead? 1.
