  • Pardiz  A Persian Food Journey
    Pardiz A Persian Food Journey
    ISBN: 9781743795194
    Publication date: 01/11/2019

    Pardiz is a personal journey into Manuela Darling-Gansser's "paradise past". Having lived in Iran for the first nine years of her life, she returned as an adult to reconnect with the country she remembered so fondly. This book is a celebration of that time; a compilation of memories, stories and beautiful recipes that underline the depth and broad appeal of this great and enduring food culture.

    In Pardiz, what Darling-Gansser does is show how seamlessly Persian food fits with trends of today: flourishing food markets; the primacy of local ingredients; the health-giving aspects of vegetable-centric dishes; and the joys of a shared table. The latter is a theme in her book – and in her life.

    In her choice of recipes, she gives a sense of the diversity of Persian food – whether it is served in a restaurant, eaten at home, prepared for a picnic, or enjoyed on the street, the setting can determine what is served. Ultimately, she focuses on recipes that are not too complicated or time consuming – recognising the great virtue that is simplicity. And encouraging readers to embrace the sociability that goes with the food as much as the food itself.
    13 - Biographical note Manuela Darling-Gansser was born in Lugano, Switzerland. She spent the first nine years of her childhood in Iran before returning to school in Zurich. An inveterate traveller and keen linguist, she has lived in the US, Japan, Italy and the UK. She has visited other parts of Asia, India, North Africa, Central Asia and the Scandinavian countries. Inspired by family traditions, she has been a passionate cook all her adult life. Her previous successful travel and food books include: Under the Olive Tree, Autumn in Piemonte, Winter in the Alps, Spring in Sicily, Top 10: Recipes for the Beginner Home Cook and Four Seasons, a Year of Italian Food. She lives with her family in Sydney.

    Publication date: 01/12/2016

    The part-time vegetarian who was identified in Sally s first book, Veggiestan, has become a thing. Great swathes of the population are now eschewing meat for the best part of the week in favour of healthier, vegetable based alternatives. The appetite for new ways to brighten your broccoli, add sparkle to your spinach and titillate your tomatillos has never been greater. Since opening her vegetarian café within her shop Persepolis, Sally has seen an explosion of interest in her Middle Eastern-influenced vegetarian dishes. Inspired by the food Sally serves up daily to her hungry customers, this sequel to Veggiestan, ventures a little further from the Middle Eastern shores, deserts and mountain ranges it other continents and beyond... The book still mostly draws on Sally s experience in Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisine, but once again she looks to all parts of the globe for vegetarian recipes (and stories). Persepolis brings you the most outstanding (and fun) ways of feeding without meat or fish, stopping along the way for a chat with the residents and a bit of sightseeing. 150 new recipes, including more vegan recipes/alternatives, offer a fantastic variety of ideas for the vegetarian cook.

    Publication date: 01/11/2014

    Salmagundi is a 17th-century English word denoting a salad dish comprising, well, everything.

  • Scent of Pomegrantates and Rose Water
    Scent of Pomegrantates and Rose Water
    ISBN: 9781551527420
    Publication date: 01/11/2018

    The traditions of Syrian cooking, which go back hundreds of years, are notable for their sensory components, in which aroma and texture are as important as taste and nutrition. Over the centuries, the unique dishes of Greater Syria (bilaad al-shaam) were preserved by those who cooked them. For cooks in imperial households, family homes, or on simple peasant farms, recipes were handed down from generation to generation. Despite centuries of occupation, economic hardships, and political strife, the people of Greater Syria continued to cook their bulgur, lentil, chickpea, kishk, and yogurt dishes as if life around them never changed.

    Syrian-born Habeeb Salloum and his daughters, Leila and Muna, have researched and explored the far reaches of Syrian cuisine for many years (and in Habeeb's case, decades). Their resulting cookbook provides a succinct window into the dining tables of eighteenth- and nineteenth-century Syria, when the region was influenced by the Ottoman Empire's reach into Persia and the Arab world. The book includes delectable, heart-healthy recipes -- some familiar, some never before published in English -- many of which have been updated and simplified for modern sensibilities. The book also provides a poignant window into Syrian culture and everyday life then and now -- framed by ageless and truly beautiful food traditions.

    Includes over 150 recipes and numerous full-colour photographs.

    Shaya An Odyssey of Food
    ISBN: 9780451494160
    Publication date: 01/03/2018

    Alon Shaya's is no ordinary cookbook. It is a memoir of a culinary sensibility that begins in Israel and wends its way from the U.S.A. (Philadelphia) to Italy (Milan and Bergamo), back to Israel (Jerusalem) and comes together in the American South, in the heart of New Orleans. It's a book that tells of how food saved the author's life and how, through a circuitous path of (cooking) twists and (life-affirming) turns the author's celebrated cuisine--food of his native Israel with a creole New Orleans kick came to be, along with his award-winning New Orleans restaurants- Shaya, Domenica, and Pizza Domenica, ranked by Esquire, Bon AppUtit, and others as the best new restaurants in the United States.
    These are stories of place, of people, and of the food that connects them, a memoir of one man's culinary sensibility, with food as the continuum throughout his journey--guiding his personal and professional decisions, punctuating every memory, choice, every turning point in his life. Interspersed with glorious full-color photographs and illustrations that follow the course of all the flavors Shaya has tried, places he's traveled, things he's experienced, lessons he's learned--more than one hundred recipes--from Roasted Chicken with Harissa to Speckled Trout with Tahini and Pine Nuts; Crab Cakes with Preserved Lemon Aioli; Roasted Cast-Iron Ribeye; Marinated Soft Cheese with Herbs and Spices; Buttermilk Biscuits; and Whole Roasted Cauliflower with Whipped Feta.
