Glynn Christian's Delicatessen Food Handbook is described by Nigel Slater as 'one of the only ten books you’ll ever need'. It's a handbook packed with all you need to know about specialty foods, from salt and pepper through olive oil to baked goods, cheeses, charcuterie, grains and pulses, herbs and spices to caviar: It not only tells you what an ingredient is and what it should look and taste like, it also tells you what it goes with and how to use it.


The writing style may be a touch camp and opinionated but because it is so well researched and accurate (Mr Christian ran an upmarket deli in London for many years before making the switch to television) it makes for fascinating reading. A great gift for the foodie.

A weighty tome (about 500 pages) with plenty of photos.
