    Afternoons in Ithaka (pb)
    ISBN: 9780733332081
    Publication date: 01/02/2014

    I remember crusty just-baked bread, rubbed with juicy tomato flesh, swimming in a puddle of thick green olive oil. I am seven years old. I sit on a stool in my grandmother's house. It is the height of summer in a seaside village in the south of Greece. We little Aussies devour 'tomato sandwiches' as the family chats and laughs and swats flies ... From the first heady taste of tomatoes on home-baked bread in her mother's village in Petalidi, to sitting at a taverna some 30 years later in Ithaka with her young family, Spiri Tsintziras goes on a culinary, creative and spiritual journey that propels her back and forth between Europe and Australia. These evocative, funny and poignant stories explore how food and culture, language and music, and people and their stories help to create a sense of meaning and identity.

    The perfect pesto. The best bouillabaisse. The purest paella.
    A river of gold flows through western Italy, southern France and eastern Spain. It's the olive oil that links three great cuisines, along with a love of garlic, anchovies, peppers, fresh herbs and seasonal vegetables. In stories and recipes, and beautiful location photography, Coastline explores the legacy of the ancient Greeks, the Romans, the Arabs and the Vikings, who left the gift of a 'cuisine of the sun' flavoured with generosity and conviviality.

  • Corsica The Recipes
    Corsica The Recipes
    ISBN: 9781925418521
    Publication date: 01/10/2017

    A sumptuous book exploring the incredible food of France’s sunny island of Corsica.

    This beautifully photographed book celebrates all that is Corsican—the people, the geography and, most importantly, the food. And with around eighty incredible Corsican recipes designed to be prepared in the home kitchen, you’ll be transported to the island in no time.

    Relatively unexplored by visitors from outside Europe (although it attracts an estimated three million from France annually), Corsica is a Mediterranean island steeped in a rich food culture. With incredible geography—from the mountains to the plains and the stunning coastline—Corsica has long been a well-loved idyll for those in the know. It is also home to a unique cuisine—blending the best of French and Italian food—that respects its homegrown produce: citrus fruits, grapes, chestnuts, cheese, herbs, fish, seafood, and charcuterie.

    But Corsica is more than a collection of recipes, as the book also brings together portraits of those who live and work there, and those instrumental in maintaining Corsica’s rich food culture.

  • Cuisine Nicoise Recipes from a Mediterranean Kitchen
    Cuisine Nicoise Recipes from a Mediterranean Kitchen
    ISBN: 9781910690161
    Publication date: 01/04/2016

    Nice may conjure up the very essence of sophisticated chic The Promenade des Anglais, the Hotel Negresco and the casinos but its culinary traditions are all about simplicity, perhaps best expressed by an old Nicoise saying: fish are born in water and die in oil . Niçoise cuisine is the food of the Mediterranean. It is not only a delight to the palate, but is known to have many health benefits. Its recipes are in tune with the natural cycle of the year using in-season fruits, herbs and vegetables, as well as plenty of fish. But the majority of the recipes are merely guides unless you are baking offering a relaxed flexibility with ingredients and seasonings suited to cooks of all levels of experience. The Niçoise pantry is stocked with the best quality extra virgin olive oil, sea salt, fresh garlic and pots of aromatic herbs such as rosemary, thyme, and basil. This, Jacques Médecin s legendary book, first published in 1972 and now reissued for the first time in hardback offers an infectiously enthusiastic guide to the cookery of his city. As well as explaining how to make genuine salade niçoise (that most betrayed of Niçois dishes) he lures the reader into the wonderful enticing world of tians, panisses, socca, and ganses. While not everyone will be able to dine alfresco under an olive tree, the way they do in Nice, this classic cookbook will at least allow you to recreate the city s best-loved dishes.
