  • 50 People Who Buggered Up Britain

    Quentin Letts

    Product Code: AAMFM
    Paperback
    (1)
    Which fifty people made Britain the wreck she is? From ludicrous propagandist Alastair Campbell to the Luftwaffe's allies, the modernist architects, it's time to name the guilty. Quentin Letts sharpens his nib and stabs them where they deserve it, from TV gardener Alan Titchmarsh, the dumbed-down buffoon who put the 'h' in Aspidistra, to the perpetrators of the 'Credit Crunch'. Margaret Thatcher ruptured our national unity. The creators of "EastEnders" trashed our brand over high tea. Thus, he argues, are the people who made our country the ugly, scheming, cheating, beer-ridden bum of the Western world. Here are the fools and knaves and vulgarians who ripped down our British glories and imposed the tawdry and the trite. In a half century we have gone from end-of-Empire to descent-into-Hell.

  • Gin Tonica

    David T. Smith

    Product Code: BGNRP
    Hardback
    Aromatic, refreshing, delicious and a feast for the eyes, the generously-sized and creatively garnished `gin tonica' Spanish-style drink is taking the cocktail world by storm. Spaniards love their gin and tonics. In Spain, the bartender doesn't ask you what you want to drink, he asks you how you want your gin and tonic prepared. This simplest of drinks - just gin, tonic, ice and a garnish - is now considered the national drink of Spain. The trend started in the north of Spain, in Basque country, where you can walk into a bar and upon ordering you are presented with a cart teeming with gin and tonic options to create your very own bespoke drink. A beautiful cocktail with a variety of herb and flower garnishes, a Spanish-style gin and tonic or `gin tonica', is made with a premium gin and the best quality tonic water, combined with bitters and various herbs, spices, flowers and fruits that will complement the botanicals of a specific gin. It is served over ice in an oversized balloon glass - the idea being that the shape enables the drinker to enjoy all the lovely aromas their drink gives off. For a cocktail with only two ingredients, the flavour potential is staggering! Making a gin tonica is an intricate process, sometimes taking a barman as long as 15 minutes to deliver the ideal drink. The ice has to be dense so that it melts slowly, the glass might be spritzed with a fine layer of citrus oil, chilled to perfection, with the tonic poured in delicately. No detail is ignored, the wait is part of the experience, and the result is absolutely delicious. Attention to detail and respect for the classic is what truly elevates the Spanish gin tonica above all others. With more gin brands and styles of tonic available than ever before, and 40 inspired recipes here to try at home, there has never been a better time to discover the joy of the gin tonica - saludos!

But what of all the letters that were just slightly too wacky, too off the wall, too politically incorrect, to make it for publication? Now the Telegraph gives their authors the stage at last: baffled, furious, occasionally paranoid, and from this hilarious selection of the best we can see that no, none them is alone...

Nine-time winners of the English League title and winners of the FA Cup on five occasions, they've sent out some of the greatest characters in English football on to the pitch at Goodison Park. From Dixie Dean, Tommy Lawton and Alex Scott through Alan Ball, Bob Latchford and Howard Kendall to Gary Lineker, Duncan Ferguson, Wayne Rooney and Leighton Baines, few clubs can boast as many people with so much to say for themselves. Everton have a proud tradition, very loyal support, and this book, filled with more than 180 quotes from legendary Evertonians, aims to capture the flavour of both.

The answers to all these questions and more are revealed in What Your Dog's Breed Says About You. Contained within are 25 brilliant profiles of the most popular canine companions out there, using a series of character sketches to detail the quirks and foibles of each breed and its owner. Take the Golden Retriever, shedding endless hairs onto the sofas of posh families in waxed jackets across the western world.
