Explanation of the Book:

NATIONAL BESTSELLER Falastin is a soulful tour of Palestinian cookery today from Ottolenghi's Executive Chef Sami Tamimi, with 120 highly cookable recipes contextualized by his personal narrative of the Palestine he grew up in. The story of Palestine's food is really the story of its people. When the events of 1948 forced people from all the regions of Palestine together into one compressed land, recipes that were once closely guarded family secrets were shared and passed between different groups in an effort to ensure that they were not lost forever. In Falastin, Tamimi retraces the lineage and evolution of his country's cuisine, born of its agriculturally optimal geography, many distinct regional cooking traditions, and, ultimately, Palestinian cooks' ingenuity and resourcefulness as the country's foodways mingled and morphed. From the recipes of refugee-camp cooks to the home kitchens of Gaza and the mill of a master tahini maker, Tamimi teases out the vestiges of an ancient cuisine while recording the derivations of a dynamic cuisine and the stories of the people of Palestine--as told from the kitchen.

Explanation of the Book:

From veteran food writer, recipe developer, and creator of the James Beard Award-winning Jarry magazine comes an innovative approach to vegetarian cooking. What have I got to eat? It’s a question we ask every time we open up the refrigerator or pantry door. It might be eggs, some cheese, and half a loaf of bread, or a box of wilting greens, garlic, and some sweet potatoes. Though these ingredients may not seem like much to make a delicious meal, recipe developer and author Lukas Volger knows it’s all you need. In Start Simple he offers a radically new, uncomplicated, and creative approach to cooking that allows you to use what you already have on hand to make great meals you didn’t think were possible. Magic can happen with just a few ingredients: sweet potatoes, tortillas, eggs, cabbage, hearty greens, beans, winter squash, mushrooms, tofu, summer squash, and cauliflower. Volger advises readers to stock up on these eleven building blocks instead of shopping for a single recipe. A protein (tofu, beans, eggs) is a foundation. A crunchy garnish (cabbage, greens) is a finishing touch. Once these structural components of a meal are established, home chefs can throw in their own variations and favorite flavors—mixing, matching, and adding ingredients to customize their dishes. While Start Simple is a vegetarian cookbook—none of the recipes include meat—Volger’s approach transcends categories. His methods aren’t about subscribing to a specific dietary regimen; they are about simply recognizing and embracing the way people cook and eat today. Creating weekly meal plans based on intricate recipes sounds good, but it can be difficult to execute. Having a well-stocked pantry paired with a choose-you-own adventure guide to creating simple yet inventive meals is more practical for your average home cook.

Editor: Bloomsbury Publishing USA
Language: en

Explanation of the Book:

A groundbreaking handbook--the "method" companion to its critically acclaimed predecessor, The Flavor Thesaurus--with a foreword by Yotam Ottolenghi. Niki Segnit used to follow recipes to the letter, even when she'd made a dish a dozen times. But as she tested the combinations that informed The Flavor Thesaurus, she detected the basic rubrics that underpinned most recipes. Lateral Cooking offers these formulas, which, once readers are familiar with them, will prove infinitely adaptable. The book is divided into twelve chapters, each covering a basic culinary category, such as "Bread," "Stock, Soup & Stew," or "Sauce." The recipes in each chapter are arranged on a continuum, passing from one to another with just a tweak or two to the method or ingredients. Once you've got the hang of flatbreads, for instance, then its neighboring dishes (crackers, soda bread, scones) will involve the easiest and most intuitive adjustments. The result is greater creativity in the kitchen: Lateral Cooking encourages improvisation, resourcefulness, and, ultimately, the knowledge and confidence to cook by heart. Lateral Cooking is a practical book, but, like The Flavor Thesaurus, it's also a highly enjoyable read, drawing widely on culinary science, history, ideas from professional kitchens, observations by renowned food writers, and Segnit's personal recollections. Entertaining, opinionated, and inspirational, with a handsome three-color design, Lateral Cooking will have you torn between donning your apron and settling back in a comfortable chair.

Editor: Watkins Media Limited
Language: en

Explanation of the Book:

More than 100 seasonal, everyday meals for friends and family from The Part-Time Vegetarian's kitchen. Since The Part-Time Vegetarian was published in 2015 the food landscape has changed. Proving itself more than a passing fad, the term “flexitarian” was added to the OED in 2015 and this way of eating has been highlighted by nutritionists and environmentalists as a necessity for the long-term health of both ourselves and our planet. Beyond eating less meat and more veg, awareness of the importance of eating sustainable, seasonal food is also on the increase. The moment a plant is harvested its nutrients start to deplete, so the sooner it is on the plate, the tastier and more nutritious it is. The Part-Time Vegetarian’s Year includes over 100 flexible recipes ordered by season, making it easy to work with the calendar to produce delicious food all year round. In spring, feast on Baked Eggs with Spring Greens or a Korean Bibimbap. Summer brings a refreshing Watermelon, Pitta and Goat’s Cheese Salad or Tomato Tarts with Preserved Lemon Relish. In autumn, cuddle up with a warming Mushroom Larb or Smoky Aubergine Pides. Finally, winter gives us celebratory Celeriac, Ginger and Sesame Bhajis and Scandinavian Potato and Celeriac Gratin. From summer barbecues to festive feasts, each chapter also contains at least one full feature menu for easy entertaining. All of the recipes are vegetarian, but most feature a Part-Time Variation, showing you how to include an element of meat or fish, or even how to make the dish fully vegan, if you would like. This is the perfect book to support your food journey whether you are fully vegetarian, just dipping a toe in the water, or someone looking to cut down on their meat intake a few days a week.
