    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.

    ‘A dark bowl full of wheat is the sky with stars’, Bulgarian proverb
    ‘This was Europe’s easternmost rim… Cherno More, Kara Su, Marea Neagra, the Euxine, the Black Sea … Constanta, Odessa, Batumi, Trebizond, Constantinople … the names were intoxicating.' Patrick Leigh Fermor, Words of Mercury

    This is the tale of a journey between three great cities – Odessa, built on a dream by Catherine the Great, through Istanbul, the fulcrum balancing Europe and Asia and on to tough, stoic, lyrical Trabzon.

    With a nose for a good recipe and an ear for an extraordinary story, Caroline Eden travels from Odessa to Bessarabia, Romania, Bulgaria and Turkey’s Black Sea region, exploring interconnecting culinary cultures. From the Jewish table of Odessa, to meeting the last fisherwoman of Bulgaria and charting the legacies of the White Russian émigrés in Istanbul, Caroline gives readers a unique insight into a part of the world that is both shaded by darkness and illuminated by light.

    Meticulously researched and documenting unprecedented meetings with remarkable individuals, Black Sea is like no other piece of travel writing. Packed with rich photography and sumptuous food, this biography of a region, its people and its recipes truly breaks new ground.

    CCCP Cook Book True Stories of Soviet Cuisine
    ISBN: 9780993191114
    Publication date: 01/11/2015

    This book contains over 60 recipes, each introduced with an insightful historical story or anecdote, and an accompanying image, spanning such delicacies as aspic, borscht, caviar and herring, by way of bird’s milk cake and pelmeni. As the Soviet Union struggled along the path to Communism, food supplies were often sporadic and shortages commonplace. Day to day living was hard, both the authorities and their citizens had to apply every ounce of ingenuity to maximize often inadequate resources. The stories and recipes contained here reflect these turbulent times: from basic subsistence meals consumed by the average citizen (okroshka), to extravagant banquets held by the political elite (suckling pig with buckwheat), and a scattering of classics (beef stroganoff) in between. Illustrated using images sourced from original Soviet recipe books collected by the author. Many of these sometimes extraordinary-looking pictures depicted dishes whose recipes used unobtainable ingredients, placing them firmly in the realm of ‘aspirational’ fantasy for the average Soviet household. In their content and presentation the pictures themselves act as a window into cuisine of the day, in turn revealing the unique political and social attitudes of the era.

    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.

    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.
