Rick Stein - 'From Venice To Istanbul'

We are delighted that Rick Stein will be joining us in the shop on Thursday 30th July to celebrate the launch ‘From Venice to Istanbul’ book and TV series. Rick will be with us at 2pm to sign copies of this new book.

“Forever influenced by its past as part of the Byzantine Empire, the Eastern Mediterranean stretches from Venice to Albania, to Croatia, Turkey and the shores of Greece, and stands as a gateway between East and West. This melting pot of cultures inspires the unique and exotic character of its cuisine, which Rick blends with his own passion for fabulous produce, fresh seafood and authentic cooking. Using influences from the Middle East, North Africa and the Balkans, Rick will share recipes such as Garlic Shrimps with Soft Polenta, Sporki Macaroni, Turkish Dumplings, Split Belly-Stuffed Aubergines, and Albanian Baked Lamb with Rice. All the recipes are interwoven with Rick’s evocative descriptions of the tastes and smells from his journey.”

Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage

Tsukuru Tazaki had four best friends at school. By chance all of their names contained a colour. The boys were called Akamatsu, meaning 'red pine', and the Oumi, 'blue sea', while the girls' names were Shirane, 'white root', and Kurono, 'black field'. Tazaki was the only last name with no colour in it.

One day Tsukuru Tazaki's friends announced they didn't want to see him, or talk to him, ever again.

Since that day Tsukuru has been floating through life, unable to form intimate connections with anyone. But then he meets Sara, who tells him that the time has come to find out what happened all those years ago.
