    A personal chef monograph, and the first book, from globally-acclaimed chef Ana Roš of Hiša Franko in Slovenia

    Set near the Italian border in Slovenia's remote So?a valley, in the foothills of mountains and beside a turquoise river full of trout, Ana Roš tells the story of her life. Through essays, recollections, recipes, and photos, she shares the idyllic landscape that inspires her, the abundant seasonal ingredients from local foragers, the tales of fishing and exploring, and the evolution of her inventive and sophisticated food at Hiša Franko - where she has elevated Slovenian food and become influential in the global culinary landscape.

  • Dutch Feast
    Dutch Feast
    ISBN: 9781551526874
    Publication date: 01/11/2017

    In the same way that British, Scandinavian, and German food have undergone a renaissance in recent years, writer and blogger Emily Wight is convinced that Dutch cuisine is going to be the next big thing. Her new cookbook reimagines traditional Dutch cooking, which has always been known for its thriftiness and practicality, with an emphasis on the ways that simple meals bring joy and comfort to the people who share them.

    Influenced by its colonial history, with bold flavors from places like Indonesia and the West Indies, and by its proximity to its European neighbors, Dutch cooking is surprisingly diverse, noted for its celebration of the ritual of the meal as much as the meal itself. From gezellig to borrels, and gado gado to uitsmijter, Dutch Feast delivers unconventional (but familiar) and economical (but indulgent) recipes, and gives you a new excuse to invite everyone over for cold gin and a heaping rijsttafel, an elaborate (yet economical) dinner party with a little dish of something for everyone.

    Touching on Dutch history and the back story of traditional ingredients (from licorice to herring to beer), these 120 recipes add charm and sophistication to a cuisine that is wholesome, economical, and stubbornly delicious.

    Emily Wight came to love Dutch cuisine when she married into a Dutch family. She is the author of Well Fed, Flat Broke, based on her blog of the same name.

    Publication date: 01/05/2020

    Most people associate Poland with kielbasa sausage and other rich, heavy meat dishes, often served with cold vodka. But there's so much more to Polish cuisine. In this refreshing approach, food writer Michal Korkosz presents a new take on traditional Polish dishes, with over 80 comforting, vegetable-forward recipes. Korkosz displays his stunning photographs in this unique cookbook to bring an oft-ignored cuisine to the forefront in a new and inventive way. The vibrant recipes, like Brown Butter Scrambled Eggs and Creamy Cucumber Salad, make Polish cooking relevant and delicious for anyone, anywhere. His passion for the food of his homeland shines through, as he reveals a new side of Poland through its beautiful fruits, vegetables, grains, and herbs, while still evoking the beloved traditions of his mother and grandmother. The vegetables are the stars, but Korkosz does not shy away from using butter, gluten, or sugar, because, he says, "life is too short." The result is a selection of mouthwatering recipes, like Buckwheat Bliny with Sour Cream, Sourdough Rye, with Cultured Kefir Butter, Salt-brined Dill Pickles, Orange Apple Pie with Meringue and Streusel, and of course, pierogi of all kinds. Paired with Korkosz's award-winning photography, this unique and fresh book redefines Polish cuisine as we know it.
