Peter Lorimer Knives

What to buy for the foodlover that has everything?
A Peter Lorimer knife is the ultimate in quality hand crafted knives and any self respecting cook/chef would love one of these beautiful pieces.

The handles are made from recycled pieces of native New Zealand timber and decorated with brass, paua or black pearl, which means each knife is unique.
Peter uses Austrian D2 steel, a high carbon steel with a low chromium content, which means that the blades can be very hard without being brittle. These knives hold their edge for longer, and are easy to sharpen.

Plenty More – Yotam Ottolenghi

I seldom buy cookbooks, but Yotam Ottolenghi Jerusalem, Plenty and now Plenty More are exceptions to this.  I have b
Yotam Ottolenghi has changed the way plenty of  people cook and eat. His focus on vegetable dishes, with the emphasis on flavour, spices and freshness of ingredients, has certainly caused a food revolution.
Plenty More picks up where Plenty left off, with 120 more dazzling vegetable-based dishes, this time organised by cooking method. Grilled, baked, simmered, cracked, braised or raw, the range of recipe ideas is stunning. With recipes including Alfonso mango and curried chickpea salad, Membrillo and stilton quiche, Buttermilk-crusted okra, Candy beetroot with lentils, Seaweed, ginger and carrot salad, and even desserts such as Roasted rhubarb with sweet labneh and Quince poached in pomegranate juice, this is quickly becoming one of my favourite books.
