While we love eating, and cooking, very few cookbooks generate enough intrigue to report on. A forthcoming item from Thames and Hudson, The Urban Cookbook , does however prompt some interest. It combines a few things we like – recipes and design. There is a premium on page layout, something so often lacking in the cookbookmarket. Also, the general idea of a 5 city cooking tour, complete with 50recipes, captured in a book, well its just a bit different. Look out for The Urban Cookbook in November and be prepared to learn about how the "grafitti generation" gets down in the kitchen.
