'This shop is now an institution... one all too easily becomes addicted.' Alan Bennett


Good Food For Your Table is a grocer's guide: this is the shopping basket deconstructed, including all you need to know about seasonality, provenance, storage, preserving and serving the very best food.

Melrose and Morgan have ten years' experience as high-street grocers, and here they share expert information to help you buy the best food so there will always be good things to eat at home. A well-stocked larder is the backbone of any kitchen, and this book is a compendium of advice on the best ingredients to buy and how to manage your kitchen cupboard to ensure nothing goes to waste. It also includes a selection of favourite recipes and simple, quick ideas to rustle up a meal.

If you've ever found yourself confused about the difference between mixed spice and allspice, Stilton and Stichelton, quinoa and couscous, then this is the book for you. We all want to be more knowledgeable about the food we eat, and this is the essential storecupboard handbook that no discerning cook should be without.

This diminutive tome covers pretty much everything you need to know in culinary terms... What's so special? The sheer breadth and depth of incredibly useful information on display in eye-catching red print - as pretty as a gingham tablecloth. * Guardian, Cookworm Book of the Week *
Somewhere between a culinary glossary, a seasonal miscellany and a how-to cookbook, this is one dinky kitchen companion, courtesy of the Primrose Hill greengrocers. Its diminutive size and pleasing red print on white paper - as pretty as a crisp gingham napkin - make it eminently easy to use, and use it you will. * Guardian *
More than a cookbook, this feels like a smart, useful culinary guide from the wonderful gourmet grocers, Nick Selby and Ian James of Melrose And Morgan. There's lots of good stuff about about what to store in your kitchen, when to buy seasonally (their big thing!), stocking your larder and how to get the best out of your ingredients. As well as easy and delicious recipes, there are clever touches, such as lovely ideas for making cheap, but effective, foodie gifts, such as herb-infused oils, sea-salted caramel honeycomb or preserved lemons. * The Pool *
