Reading Matters



‘The Little Paris Kitchen’ by Rachel Khoo Rachel Khoo serves up a modern twist on classic French cooking. Rachel Khoo was determined to get to grips with French cooking, so to learn more she moved to Paris, not speaking a word of French, and enrolled at Le Cordon Bleu, the world-famous cookery school. Six years later, she still lives and works in Paris, cooking up a selection of classic French dishes from all over the country and giving them a fresh makeover with her own modern twists. From a Croque Madame muffin and the classic Boeuf bourguignon, to a deliciously fragrant Provencal lavender and lemon roast chicken, Rachel celebrates the culinary landscape of France as it is today and shows how simple these dishes are. The 120 recipes in the book range from easy, everyday dishes like Omelette Piperade, to summer picnics by the Seine and afternoon ‘gouter’ (snacks), to meals with friends and delicious desserts including classics like Creme brulee and Tarte tatin. It’s a book that celebrates the very best of French home-cooking in a modern and accessible way. Real French food is no longer something only served in fancy restaurants; Rachel will show how you can add a little French culinary touch to your everyday life at home, no matter where you are in the world, or how big your kitchen is! ‘My Story’ Tom Daley Enter the enthralling world of Olympian Tom Daley. Tom had hearts in mouths when he dived at the 2010 Commonwealth Games, where he won two gold medals. He is one of Britain’s gleaming hopes for

gold at the London 2012 Olympics. But there is also a heartbreaking and inspiring story of a young athlete coping with the death of his father whilst under the glare of the world’s media spotlight. In this, Tom’s first official memoir, he offers unprecedented access to the pressures, challenges and fascinating experiences of a world-class Olympian. From his dayto-day schedule, to his hobbies and family life, to sharing his hopes and dreams in the build up to the London Olympics, this book offers a unique chance to get close to Tom. Featuring exclusive photography, both personal and newly commissioned, this will be the ultimate book for the 2012 Olympics. ‘Me Before You’ by Jo Jo Moyes Lou Clark knows lots of things. She knows how many footsteps there are between the bus stop and home. She knows she likes working in The Buttered Bun tea shop and she knows she might not love her boyfriend Patrick. What Lou doesn’t know is she’s about to lose her job or that knowing what’s coming is what keeps her sane. Will Traynor knows his motorcycle accident took away his desire to live. He knows everything feels very small and rather joyless now and he knows exactly how he’s going to put a stop to that. What Will doesn’t know is that Lou is about to burst into his world in a riot of colour. And neither of them knows they’re going to change the other for all time.

Renewable energy solutions that don’t cost the earth! IDDEA Ltd based in Devizes, have built up an unrivalled reputation for high quality solar PV installations. So far this year they have installed over 750kWp of PV on domestic and commercial roofs throughout the region. The Company started in the renewable sector in 2007 and is headed by Directors Ian Dunstone and Pete Cadwgan, with a growing team of installers who are given on-going training and support to be at the top of their league. Although the government incentive Feed in Tariff has recently dropped, PV is still a viable option, saving you money on your electricity costs and earning you an income by generating electricity that is metered. Air Source heat pumps provide ‘greener’ and cheaper heat, with efficiencies of up to 400% when used in conjunction with PV (Solar Panels). Solar water heating systems can generate between 50-60% of your hot water through a panel which is often installed on the roof of your property. It will reduce your energy bills significantly. Heating your property with a green, locally sourced and sustainable fuel supply - Biomass Heating - can be of huge environmental and financial benefit when compared to heating with oil and propane gas. A government RHI (renewable heat incentive) may be available for your property. Each property has its own unique characteristics; from the outset, Peter or Ian will advise which technologies are appropriate for the property. Their office in Devizes has a full working PV system that can be viewed along with panels, different types of mounting equipment and a selection of inverters.

High quality German equipment and MCS accredited installation by experienced, local installers. This is based on a south facing roof, climate data gathered locally. Annual usage of electricity (from supplier) of 6000 units priced at 16.5 pence per unit. RPI assumed at 3% per year, energy prices assumed at 5% increase per year (as per long range price forecast).
