Food By Design

by Antonio G. Gardoni [2002]

Book

pages 132

Never before have the twin necessities of food and design been such important elements of our culture. This work explores the relationship between these disciplines. Twenty five leading architects and designers, including John Pewson, Future Systems and Marc Newson, submit their favourite recipes together with idiosyncratic sketches and photographs showing the ingredients or the subject at work in the kitchen. You could try creating Phillipe Starck's boiled egg and sea urchin, Will Alsop's lobster thermidor with mango salsa, or Nigel Coates; truffle ice-cream, as well as reading their views on food: as self-expression, as a representation or design philosophy, or simply as a signifier of pleasure


Urban and Regional Planning A Systems Approach

by J. Brian McLoughlin [1969]

Book

pages 340

'A textbook to introduce new developments to new students and old planners was clearly needed: we are fortunate that one of the most able of British academic planners took on the task. McLoughlin has been outstandingly successful in writing a clear and comprehensive account of the systems approach to planning. He particularly deserves to be congratulated on his lively and unpretentious style: a wider public may thus be encouraged to Iearn more of the planners' new tools. Books such as this may do more for public participation in planning than many a shrill pamphlet.' B. E. Pahlin New Society

The Naked Chef 2 Cook Book

by Jamie Oliver

Book

pages 124

The No 1 bestseller I love this book. It's the very first thing I ever wrote, and I never thought the person worst at English in my school would end up writing a book. It's largely made up of recipes scribbled on the back of order forms and beer mats, collected together in a black bin liner that my wife almost threw away twice - it's a miracle this book ever came to be! Because of this book, a lot of blokes were henpecked into doing a bit of cooking. Good job too! The salad and pasta recipes are real winners, but the one people still talk about all the time is my perfect roast chicken, with its herb butter stuffed right under the skin of the bird. I think one of the best things about the recipes in The Naked Chef is that the ingredients are totally accessible
