Not only has the period of the past seventy years been the richest for literary translation into Scots since the sixteenth century, but it can claim to be the richest in terms of the quantity of work and the range of languages and genres translated. This collection of essays, by translators and critics, represents the first extended analysis of the nature and practice of modern translation into Scots.
Pure Jamie Oliver magic, which sees the cheeky chef take charge of 20,000 school dinners in an inner London borough. The real stars of course are the kids!
Live Jamie Oliver's engagingly smarmy Cockney patois and his unbridled enthusiasm for great food done well would be enough to make this not-even-thirty-year-old chef a success. But on top of that, he can cook. With a number of best-selling cookbooks and television shows, Oliver (a.k.a. the Naked Chef) now takes his show on the road in a special culinary concert captured live at London's Hammersmith Apollo. It's truly a spectacle to behold, with lots of wit, audience participation, and a no-holds-barred performance by Oliver. DVD extras include on-screen recipe cards, an exclusive interview with Oliver, and his short (he was born in '75, after all) but illustrious biography.
