The Hawaiian people have a laid-back love of life, and Island Poké is a London restaurant committed to sharing this ethos and the authentic flavors from these shores in over 65 recipes. Poké (pronounced Po-Keh) means to ‘slice’ or ‘dice’ in Hawaiian but it has evolved to become the Hawaiian staple of sliced raw fish served on rice with many condiments and toppings. James, the author and founder of Island Poké, became hooked on this delicacy as a child on the beach in Maui. Fast-forward a couple of decades, James sensed a gap in the market for an authentic and sustainable approach to Hawaiian cuisine. Thus, Island Poké was born? fusing the joy of real Hawaiian food, which is a delicious fusion of many cuisines including Polynesian, Japanese, Chinese, South American, Pacific Rim and even Portuguese influences. The book includes recipes for popular poké dishes sold in the restaurant such as classic Spicy Ahi and Golden Beet with Chile Lime Shoyu. There are multicultural Pacific Rim inspired dishes such as Sea Bass Crudo, Teriyaki Salmon Chirashi and Baja Poke Tostadas. Famous Luau feasting recipes include Kalua Pork, Pacific Chowder and Huli Huli Chicken. Finally, a chapter showcasing tropical brunches and bakes includes Acai Bowls and Zucchini and Pecan Loaf.

Healing miso soup If you’ve never had soup for breakfast, you should try treating yourself with a bowl of hot miso soup like this one. In Japan, miso soup is traditionally served for breakfast, accompanied by rice and pickled vegetables. It’s very clear why the Japanese have the world’s longest life expectancy! Apart from nourishing you with enzymes, vitamins and minerals, this delicious, energizing soup will also

support your immune system – perfect if you’re suffering from fatigue or the common cold. Don’t forget that you can combine different kinds of miso in the same soup! Since hatcho (soy) miso is of high quality but has a strong taste, try to combine ½ tablespoon of soy miso with ½ tablespoon barley miso to get all the benefits of both kinds of soy paste. In warmer weather, you may want to substitute darker miso pastes with the milder sweet white miso.

Soak the wakame in a bowl with 120 ml/½ cup cold water until soft. Drain (reserve the water), cut into small pieces and set aside. Peel the fresh ginger and finely mince half of it. Finely grate the other half in a small bowl and keep for later. Chop the spring onions/scallions and cut the tofu into small cubes. In a frying pan/skillet, sauté the white part of the spring onions/scallions for 1 minute in the sesame oil, then add the garlic, ginger and salt. Sauté a little longer, add the hot water, tofu and set-aside wakame and cover. Bring to the boil, then lower the heat and simmer for 4 minutes. Remove from the heat.

7-cm/3-inch piece dried wakame (seaweed) 2-cm/1-inch piece fresh ginger 4 spring onions/scallions 110 g/⅔ cup fresh tofu 2 tablespoons sesame oil 4 garlic cloves, crushed pinch of salt 480 ml/2 cups hot water

Pour approximately 60 ml/¼ cup of hot water into a small bowl. Add the miso and purée really well with a fork, until completely dissolved. Pour back, cover and let sit for 2–3 minutes. Take the grated ginger in your hand and squeeze it to release the juice directly into the hot soup. Discard the remaining ginger pulp. Add the chopped spring onion/scallion greens, parsley and lemon juice and serve immediately!

1–2 tablespoons barley or rice miso 2 tablespoons fresh flat-leaf parsley, chopped freshly squeezed juice of ½ organic lemon Serves 2



Red lentil dosas In case you have never tried to make fermented pancakes out of any type of beans or lentils, this is an easy recipe for total beginners. Except for the soaking and fermenting time, the process is pretty much the same as for any other pancakes – once the batter is ready they are fried in a little oil until lovely and golden brown.

200 g/1 cup red lentils 200 g/1 cup millet ¼ teaspoon sea salt ½ teaspoon crushed black pepper ¼ teaspoon ground turmeric 3 tablespoons chopped spring onions/scallions or fresh flat-leaf parsley sesame oil, for frying Makes 12–14

Wash the lentils and the millet. Cover with hot water and let soak for 8 hours. Drain, keeping the soaking water. In a high-speed blender, blend the lentils and millet adding just enough of the soaking water to get a thick and smooth batter. Transfer into a bowl, cover with clingfilm/plastic wrap and let ferment in a warm place for 12–24 hours. The batter is ready when bubbles start forming on the surface. At this point, whisk in the remaining ingredients. Heat a frying pan/skillet and use a pastry brush to cover it with a little oil. Pour a small ladleful of the batter into the pan/skillet and tilt the pan to spread the batter evenly. Once the edges start turning golden brown, flip the pancake over. Dosas are best served warm with different types of cream cheese (see pages 94 and 97), with a hot condiment (see pages 111–112) or with a nice chutney. They can also be served with soups and stews, in place of bread.

Rosé Cocktails The recent rise of rosé as THE summer drink started with the arrival of “frosé” (a cheeky concoction of fruity frozen rosé blended with strawberry syrup and served slushie-style) but bartenders worldwide are now turning their attention to the pink stuff and using it as the base for more complex, sophisticated drinks. Some are subtly spiked with vodka, gin, whiskey, or tequila, others are sweetened with sticky fruit-based liqueurs such as Cointreau and cassis, while some are sharpened up with tangy citrus juices like pink grapefruit and lime, or accented with delicate floral cordials, such as elderflower and lavender. Rosé also works beautifully in a fruit-filled summer punch, served in large bowls or pitchers and packed with juicy orchard and berry fruits. Here you’ll find recipes for all styles of recipe from short to long, flat to sparkling, tart to sweet, and fun to fancy. Choose an elegant sparkling aperitif such as a Pom Pom or a Blackberry Bellini; a sophisticated sipper like the Rosy Glow or Pink Gimlet; a long refresher like a minty Rojito or Spanish Copa de Frutas; or a tooth-tingling icy treat such as a Twisted Frosé or Raspberry and Rosé Caipirinha; or why not share the good news with friends and fill a bowl with Just Peachy Punch or serve up a pitcher of Bourbon and Blue Iced Tea.

• Trend-led millennials, serious wine drinkers, and celebrities are all choosing rosé—Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie co-own Miravel Rosé, Drew Barrymore’s favorite wine from her own winery is a rosé, and the wine even has an Instagram fan account YesWayRosé.

Boozy Slushies, Poptails, & Ice Pops Kickstart a summer of fun with this collection of over 25 recipes for deliciously refreshing frozen cocktails. Happy hour is never far away with an ice box stocked full of these spiked icy treats. Nothing is so satisfying as a chilled fruity ice pop, grabbed and shared round languorously from the icebox on a boiling hot day. The instant cooling gratification that comes with every lick is a simple yet wonderful nostalgic pleasure. Equally as nostalgic are the neon-bright slushies of youth—and the brain-freeze and blue tongue that often came with them. These juvenile treats have clearly not lost their appeal amongst fun-loving adults, and recent trends have seen bartenders and chefs transform these childish ices into something far more sophisticated with a healthy measure of alcohol. It started with the simple frosé (frozen rosé) and now even more elaborate poptails and layered ice pops are appearing on every menu du jour. Made with real fruits, juices and alcohol, essentially your favorite cocktails and alcoholic drinks are frozen into the most luxurious of ice pops or slushies. It is remarkably easy to make these tipsy treats at home—Hannah Miles shows you how.

Inside, Marcello has opted for a simple, rustic style free of superfluous elements or architectural whimsy (opposite).

Sardinian BLUES ARCHITECT MARCELLO SCANO’S HOME REVEALS A GREAT DEBT TO THE BEAUTIFUL NATURAL ENVIRONMENT THAT SURROUNDS IT. This stylish rustic home, home to architect Marcello Scano and his family, sits on a large plot of around seven acres in a rural part of Gallura, an area of great natural beauty located in the northeastern corner of the island of Sardinia. Marcello is a local boy who returned to his roots a few years ago along with wife Adriana and their family. “We wanted a place not too far from the city, but close to the sea and within a natural oasis of Mediterranean scenery,” he explains.

spent months driving around Gallura in search of the ideal plot on which to build a home, the couple eventually stumbled across the right spot with a little help from the local farmers. It was a case of love at first sight. Marcello wanted to design a house that respected its historical and geographical context, and the result is a new building that looks as though it’s been there for a hundred

In Relaxed Coastal Style, Sally Denning offers decorating inspiration for anyone lucky enough to live by the ocean, as well as those who only dream of it. Scientists tell us that living by the coast makes us happier and healthier: increased views of blue space have a calming effect and sea air improves our ability to absorb oxygen. Being by water brings a sense of tranquility and relaxation and a home by the sea has never been more desirable. The first part of the book offers up Sally’s unique take on coastal style, celebrating the colors and textures of the seaside: bare wooden boards, uncurtained windows, and furnishings covered in robust linen or cotton that will endure salt water and the sun’s rays. Sally also looks at lighting, furniture, and coastal decorative accents such as maps, charts, and nauticalthemed accessories. She draws inspiration from beachcombing, displaying shells, and driftwood to feel close to nature and the sound of the waves. The second half of the book visits a selection of glorious coastal houses, cottages, and hideaways that are guaranteed to enchant and inspire. Wherever you live, Relaxed Coastal Style will inspire you to adopt the relaxed, informal simplicity of life by the sea.

Door J’Adore There are billions of doors around the world and, just like people, each and every one is different. Doors are a barrier between reality and imagination and the portal between private and public. And therein lies their sense of mystery: without opening them we will never know what or who lies behind them. Our curious nature leads us to wonder what is beyond, and we only have what we see in front of us to go by, but take a closer look and you will discover that each door tells its own story. Whether it’s the particular shade of paint, the texture of the finish, an extravagant knocker, the plant that scrambles around the frame, or an elegantly turned handle, every door reveals the secret of its past, its present, its culture, and the person who lives behind it. This book showcases a variety of beautiful doors chosen for their wide-ranging appeal and celebrates the everyday beauty of something we take for granted—doors.

NICK ROWELL was born in Paris but grew up near Oxford, England. During his university years, Nick set off travelling and it was in the cosmopolitan streets of Buenos Aires that he first developed an interest in photographing doors. In an attempt to seek out even more beautiful doors, Nick set up the instagram account @door_jadore to allow him to capture all those he came across, and connect with other door enthusiasts. He lives in London.

Introduction ABOVE LEFT Doors

that have been left untouched sometimes tell the most poignant of stories. ABOVE RIGHT

A glorious cascade of autumnal colour surrounds this London door.

I don’t claim to be a door expert (in fact I’m not even sure such a thing exists). But I’ve looked at a lot of doors over the past five years or so and I’d like to share what I’ve noticed about them. There are billions of doors around the world and, just like people, each one is different. Whether it’s the particular shade of paint, the patina or texture of the finish, an extravagant brass knocker, the climber that frames it, or an elegantly turned handle, every door reveals the secret of its past, its present, its culture and the person who lives behind it. Doors are a barrier between reality and imagination and the portal between

private and public. And therein lies their sense of mystery: without opening them we will never know what or who lies behind them. Curiousity leads us to wonder what is beyond, and we only have what we see in front of us to go by, but take a closer look and you will find that every door tells its own story. For example, the doors on the Greek island of Santorini, most of them wooden and painted an unassuming blue that’s faded by the sun’s unrelenting rays, reveal the history of the town, which is built on a cliff tumbling down to the Aegean. Many of the doors of this town hint at expansive views just beyond and

a quick peek over a side wall may give us an unexpected glimpse of the sea glittering in the distance. With the island in bloom almost all year round, the inviting floral adornments of Santorini’s doors seem to symbolize the warm nature of the island’s inhabitants and welcome us to the vibrant local culture. In contrast, Moroccan doors offer a much more guarded face to the world. Massive in their physical stature, their wood and iron panels studded with bolts and framed between unclimbable walls, these doors are seemingly impenetrable yet they have their own story to tell. Much like Indian doors, they are made

using traditional techniques and the quality of the craftsmanship is remarkable, making these doors pieces of art in their own right. They are testament to the artisan culture in Morocco, which combines Berber traditions with Islamic, Jewish and other European influences. If such a thing as door guides existed, they certainly wouldn’t run out of stops when leading tourists around the old town of Fez or the souks of Marrakesh. In modern cities, like Berlin or San Francisco doors can serve as a canvas for self-expression or popular culture: graffiti, politics and sex can all be found to some degree on the doors of the city.

Their showroom is an all-white warehouse, sparsely scattered with rectilinear sofas and chairs in neutral colours, spiced with the odd piece of old furniture – perhaps a curly 1920s metalwork console, or a plain French mirror.

Nevertheless, what we now think of as the archetypal English interior, whether a cottage with geraniums on the windowsill and rosebuds on the teapot, or a rectory drawing room with peonies on the grand piano and posies on the curtains, is characterized by its predominantly floral decoration and a preponderance of flower-related ornaments. As John Cornforth said of the charming, chintzy rooms created by John Fowler, ‘even in London he seems able to suggest bees buzzing among roses’, which, fresh from a dusty pavement after a long day in an air-conditioned office, is rather a lovely thought.

The English style in interior design is admired and imitated the world over. At its grandest it is a stately home furnished with antiques, but the houses featured in this book are country cottages, farmhouses, townhouses, and apartments. What links them is as much an attitude as a look. The English style of decoration is practical and informal, designed around the inhabitants of the rooms and their lifestyles. These houses are lived in and loved. All are perfect in their own way, and all as endearingly English as saying sorry when someone treads on your foot. The book’s chapters—Plain English, English Eccentric, English Rose, English Country House, and Classic English—reflect the many and varied facets of English style, and each section ends with pages devoted to suggestions and ideas for furnishing a house. At the back of the book, there is a comprehensive listing of suppliers to help readers create their very own take on perfect English style.

Shibori Learn the Japanese art of shibori, including tie-dyeing, folded, rolled, and sewn techniques, using indigo dye. Then make one of the 25 projects using the fabric you have created. Shibori is the name for a range of dyeing techniques that have been practiced in Japan for centuries. Using just plain white cloth and indigo dye, you can create a huge range of patterns that will each be unique. Full photographic step-by-step instructions are given for preparing the vat and plain dyeing, so you can master these steps before you move on to the different types of shibori. Each chapter then starts with a photographic step-by-step explanation of a different shibori technique. The first chapter covers kanoko and kumo (tie-dyeing with and without stones). Next there is shibori itajime (folding the fabric and clamping it between pieces of wood), then arashi (wrapping fabric around tubes), and nui (sewing and gathering the fabric with thread). After each technique has been explained, there are simple projects to make that show off the patterns you have created at their best. A sewing techniques section completes the book, with all the basic stitches and skills you will need to make the projects.
