    Incredible pizzas and authentic Italian recipes from street-foodie brothers who have taken London by storm.Pizza Pilgrims is the brainchild of James and Thom Elliot who decided to give up their 'proper' jobs to follow a dream. Excited by the burgeoning street food movement in London, they decided to travel 4,000km around Italy in their Ape three-wheeler van, meeting food producers, top chefs and passionate local cooks, to uncover the best-kept secrets of pizza making and bring them home. Armed with their Italian foodie knowledge, they set up shop (or van) in Berwick Street market in Soho selling incredible takeaway pizzas at a reasonable price. Since then they've garnered five-star reviews for their food, opened a pop-up restaurant, which was an instant sell-out and fed a host of hungry festival goers throughout the summer.This book shows how to make the best pizzas ever - from the simple but revered Neapolitan margherita to saltimbocca (pizza sandwiches) and pizza nduja (pizza topped with a spicy pork sausage). Pizza Pilgrims focuses on the key ingredients and techniques that will make your pizza stand out from the crowd as well as showcasing other cherished Italian recipes from the brothers; Pepperonata on bruschetta, Tuscan chicken with green olives, the cheese farmer's wife's Caciofiore ravioli, vanilla ice cream three ways and many, many more. James and Thom's enthusiasm for Italian food is addictive and this is a cookbook to inspire and to have fun with.

Food and drink trends
We have seen a lot of cooking trends in recent years, especially when it comes to sustainability. At Tales you find many cookbooks concerning precisely that. It is actually quite easy to cook sustainably, if you remember these three pieces of advice. 1. always remember to buy locally produced fruit and vegetables so that you reduce transportation that normally leaves a huge climate footprint. 2. use the ingredients that match the season. By doing that you reduce the use of greenhouse farming that also uses a lot of energy. 3. and maybe most importantly; try to lessen your food waste by finding new ways of combining your left-overs. By reducing food waste you also save a lot of money in addition to saving the environment for a lot of wasted energy and unnecessary consumption. If you need creative ideas and new recipes to help you fight food waste, we would recommend you to dive into the cookbook Solo Cooking for a Sustainable Planet
Another trend is food that is easy and fast to cook. In our busy everyday many haven’t got the time to cook, and that makes many choose the easy way by ordering something from the local fastfood restaurant. A choice with little variation and typically not all that healthy. Something Jamie Oliver tries to root out. Jamie Oliver is one of the most popular chiefs in modern time. He has found a way of getting the most tasty meals out of a few good ingredients. Try to dive into his cookery book 5 ingredients - quick & fastfood for easy and cheap recipes for the everyday. Oliver gives his take on healthy dishes that are as fast to make as ordering from your local fastfood restaurant. Jamie Oliver’s collection of easy recipes is also a good cookbook for beginners. 
Fermentation has also gone extremely popular in recent years. The cooking technique might just be the direct opposite of Jamie Oliver’s easy and fast recipes, but many people have started to ferment onions, beetroots, pumpkins and cucumbers at home. You can ferment almost everything, the only limit is your imagination. To ferment is also very sustainable, because it increases the durability of the products you choose to ferment. Read the cookery book The Art of Fermentation to get a guide on how to get started on fermentation. 

Vegan cookery book
Another way of making your cooking more sustainable is also by going vegan - maybe just a day or two every week saves the environment for a lot of CO2. That is why Tales’ collection of food and drink also contains many vegan cookery books. A good vegan cookery book contains delicious and innovative recipes without meat, and it also contains inspiring stories about the vegan life and the challenges it comes with. 
At Tales you find the vegan cookery book Vegan 100 by Gaz Oakley. Oakley gives you a guide with all you need to know, when you go vegan. A book he missed, when he himself went vegan. The vegan cookery book contains no less than 100 green and tasty recipes that makes you forget all about meat. If you want inspiration for your next vegan cookery book take a look at our category Vegetarian cookery that both contains vegan and vegetarian recipes. 

Cookbook for kids
If you want to teach your kids how to cook. You can also find your next cookbook for kids in Tales’ selection. A good cookbook for kids is essential in raising your child, so they can be curious on food and experiment with different recipes. Kids that have cooked in their childhood grow up to be quality-conscious amateur and even professional cooks.  
You can for example let your child discover recipes inspired by the magical world of Harry Potter. In the cookery book Unofficial Harry Potter Cookbook - from Mugglers to Magic Gina M. Meyers gives her guide to enchanting meals from the fascinating Harry Potter Universe. Let your child take on a magical journey while making their first meal. The enchanting narrative in the cookbook for kids makes your child more curious about cooking and tasting new ingredients. Cooking becomes a form of play.
