For the international chef
The Cook for Syria campaign started life as a supper club and has developed into a global, food-based movement to raise money for Unicef’s Children of Syria Fund. The team has hosted a pop up in London’s Seven Dials, serving delicious Syrian-inspired recipes, and now you can try your hand with the launch of the Cook for Syria cookbook.
For the sustainable chef
The wonderful Alexandra Dudley catered our 5th birthday party last month, and her first cookbook celebrates sustainable eating, loves leftovers and encourages using every part of your ingredients. Pick it up at Amazon and read our interview with Alexandra here.
For the history buff
Classics Professor and ancient Rome expert Mary Beard turns her attention to the history of women in power, from Medusa and Athena to present-day politicians and leaders in Women & Power: A Manifesto. Reviews suggest buying one copy for yourself, and one copy as a gift…
For the starter-upper
You may know Bianca Miller-Cole from her appearance on The Apprentice in 2014; since then she has gone on to bring to life the range of multi-skin tone nude tights that she pitched on the show, and is committed to helping others realise their business dreams. Together with husband Byron Cole, she released Self Made this year, which aims to remove jargon and help ambitious dreamers get straight down to work.
For the social media butterfly
Emma Gannon is former social media editor of British Glamour, as well as a successful blogger, podcaster and freelance writer. Her first book Crtl Alt Delete tells tales of her coming of age during the internet explosion. You can hear her podcast here and pick up her book here.
