Quadrille serves up fresh voices for cookery list

<p>Quadrille is launching a new cookery list with two young chefs both in their twenties.</p><p>Entitled <em>New Voices in Food</em>, Quadrille&rsquo;s new list aims to showcase &ldquo;interesting young chefs&rdquo; and will kick off with two new titles due out in July.</p><p>Anne Furniss, editorial director at Quadrille, said the list was, &ldquo;about discovering and nurturing the new visions in food writing&rdquo;. She added: &ldquo;Most of our trusted bestselling authors are very well established . . . they are dominating the market and it&rsquo;s becoming extremely difficult for young voices to break into the market.&rdquo;</p><p>One of the first two titles is <em>My Kitchen: Real Food from Near and Far</em> by Stevie Parle, a 24-year-old chef who has worked at both the River Caf&eacute; and Moro. The title is divided into 12 chapters for the months of the year with recipes based around seasonal foods, occasions from Parle&rsquo;s life and global inspiration. At the start of each chapter he also gives a masterclass about a single foodstuff.</p><p>The second title to launch the list is <em>Alice&rsquo;s Cookbook </em>by Alice Hart, chef and youngest ever food editor at <em>Waitrose Food Illustrated.</em> With this title, each chapter is based around an occasion, for example, Sunday lunches, barbecues and camper van picnics. The book has a scrapbook feel to it with skewed pictures and passport stamps.</p><p>Both titles will be published as &pound;14.99 paperbacks with flaps. </p><p>Furniss said each chef used their own experiences as well as inspiration taken from their travels to create&shy; a &ldquo;really interesting cross&rdquo;. </p><p>She added: &ldquo;There is another market, a younger&shy; market, who is interested in a different kind of food which isn&rsquo;t appearing in books... The series will have a young, edgy but stylish look, and will be essential reading for all budding foodies.&rdquo;</p><p>Quadrille plans a similar output for the list next year. Furniss said Quadrille &ldquo;really wants to get some new energy in at the bottom to build on . . . we don&rsquo;t want to fill up the list for the sake of it.&rdquo;</p>
