The Cinnamon Club Cookbook

Anyone who has walked through the doors of The Cinnamon Club Restaurant housed in London’s Old Westminster Library building could not help but be impressed by what Iqbal Wahhab and Vivek Singh have created within. In conjunction with two-star Michelin chef Eric Chavot they have created an award-winning cuisine that has transformed the traditional view of Indian restaurant food. The Cinnamon Club Cookbook recreates the dishes that have brought the restaurant so much praise since first opening in 2001. All the Cinnamon Club favourites are here as well as recipes for breakfasts and the legendary Cinnamon Club cocktails. This is an Indian cookery book like no other before and seems certain to set the standard for some long time to come.

Iqbal Wahhab was a distinguished food journalist and restaurant publicist who famously edited Tandoori Magazine and claimed that most Indian restaurant staff were ‘miserable gits’. Perhaps not surprisingly, he was sacked from his editorial post and so he decided to put his (and other people’s) money where his mouth was and set about creating the greatest Indian restaurant in the world using the stunning talents of India’s leading young chef, Vivek Singh. The rest is the stuff of restaurant legend.

The Marmite World Cookbook

In 2003, The Marmite Cookbook was published and quickly became the surprise bestseller of Christmas 2003. Now there’s another!

Love it or hate it, there’s no ignoring Marmite. The original Marmite Cookbook was described as being possibly the most divisive cookbook ever, in which case THE MARMITE WORLD COOKBOOK must be a very close second.

Paul Hartley’s culinary magic sees Marmite infiltrate itself into some of the finest and most far-flung cuisines of the world … slowly mingling into the tagines of North Africa and making audacious appearances in everything from Chicken Caesar Salad to Mexican Beanpot with Cornmeal Dumplings. Marmite pops up in Thai-style Oxtail Soup, Georgian Feast Bread, and Rump Steak Kebabs, and it even makes a cameo appearance in Jamaican Curried Goat. There really is no stopping this versatile spread in its globetrotting quest to lift great dishes to new-found Marmitey heights.

As well as being packed with fabulous recipes, THE MARMITE WORLD COOKBOOK is full of anecdotes, trivia and irresistible photography, making it a truly indispensable book for the Marmite faithful.

Paul Hartley is renowned for his storecupboard wizardry and his best-selling books include The Marmite Cookbook, which has sold more than a quarter of a million copies. Other titles in the Storecupboard Cookbook series include The Horlicks Cookbook (2010), The Heinz Tomato Ketchup Cookbook, The Colman’s Mustard Cookbook and The Lyle’s Golden Syrup Cookbook. Absolute Press – unapologetic Marmite fans – also publish The Bumper Book of Marmite.
