The Girls Have Arrived!

Much anticipated new books from authors Laura Calder and Jennifer McLagan have arrived!

In Dinner Chez Moi: The Fine Art of Feeding Friends, Laura Calder celebrates the joy of entertaining with a delightful collection of seasonal recipes that are simple yet elegant. Filled with thoughtful advice and tips, amusing real-life stories and mix-and-match menus, Dinner Chez Moi gives readers endless ideas for cooking for the ones they love.

Odd Bits: How to Cook the Rest of the Animal by Jennifer McLagan takes readers beyond the more common meat cuts. Jennifer embraces the idea of nose-to-tail eating with fascinating facts, history and humour with delectable and approachable recipes that take the oddness out of those leftover bits.
