Favourite Suffolk Recipes by Dorothy Baldock (Salmon Paperback, Waterstones 1.35)
At just 47 pages in length, this unique cookery book is one of the best you will ever purchase as it is both a culinary journey into the past and a history lesson all rolled into one. From an authentic Suffolk Raisin Roly-Poly to a delicious Potted Shrimp dish, which I have personally made for friends and family to high praise, this tiny book makes a fantastic gift for those visiting our county and is one of the bestselling cookery books in our branch of Waterstones, selling as many copies a month as chefs of stature like Rick Stein and Sophie Grigson. With beautifully reproduced etchings of Suffolk landmarks on every other page, this book has it all and at just 1.35 is wonderful value for money.



Discover Britain by The AA (AA Hardback, Waterstones 25)
Another month passes and another fantastic publication by the AA arrives at the bookshop full to the brim with new and exciting days out for families to enjoy. With over 500 days out in England, Scotland and Wales to choose from, this is the perfect book for those whove yet to see a fraction of what our country has to offer. Featuring two beautiful double page spreads dedicated to the Medieval Towns and Villages of Suffolk, which feature Long Melford and Sudbury and another on Ancient Sites and Country Towns featuring Bury St Edmunds and Thetford. A glossy and detailed book that deserves to be used again and again.



The Southwold Diary Of James Maggs 1818-1876 by James Maggs and Alan Bottomley (Suffolk Records Society Paperback, Waterstones 17.99)
James Maggs made it his lifes work to know everything that was happening in Southwold from 1818 to 1876. He kept incredibly detailed chronicles recording minute occurrences between tradesmen and townsfolk, which years later have unwittingly become important historical documents offering a glimpse of the past in vivid, handwritten detail. Limping Jem, as he was known to his many friends and acquaintances, writes with an infectious passion about the daily routines of fishermen, seafarers and businessmen, who he knew better than most people know their closest friends, and with the help of editor Alan Bottomley has provided a time capsule full of insights into the Southwold of the 18th century.
