The Middle Eastern Vegetarian Cookbook

We discovered Salma Hage’s inspiring recipes from the Middle East a few years back when we got her first cookbook: The Lebanese Kitchen – which is one of our favourites Lebanese cookbook. The recipes are practical and absolutely delicious, with layers of ingredients, aromas, textures and flavours of Europe and the Middle East turning into light mezze dishes, […]

Cornersmith – The Cookbook

Who doesn’t love pickles? Certainly not us! For dinner or as a snack, the curious and exciting world of sour and salty veggies in all shapes and colours seems endless. Seriously, just look at these beauties: We recently talked about the excellent Bar Tartine cookbook, which we really loved. But it certainly isn’t the easiest introduction to […]

The Japanese cuisine offers one of the most diverse palettes of flavours and ingredients of the world.

The Tacopedia by Phaidon – The Bible for Taco Geeks

Yep. This book is indeed as incredible as it sounds. Last year, we’ve spent a fortune chasing down  a copy of the Spanish edition of this book in a library in DF, but with no regrets: it’s without a doubt THE reference for all tortilla geeks out there. While there are many excellent books about Mexican cuisine, nothing comes close to the Tacopedia (Amazon UK / […]

Their food is just amazing and […]

Peru – The Cookbook

Beyond ceviches and Pisco sours, Peruvian food is one of those things we know very little about. We haven’t visited the country yet, and other than dining at Ceviche or Lima, we’ve not had many occasions to taste all the goodness of Peruvian food. So we couldn’t wait to get our hands on Peru – The Cookbook […]

Book Review – Rose Water & Orange Blossoms

We have a scary collection of middle-eastern (M-E) cookbooks (40+), so we’re reasonably familiar with the food over there. Sadly, the stereotype about M-E food is generally around “OMG, it’s too difficult, I need many spices and expensive ingredients“. This book will prove you the contrary! What we loved in this book right away is that it’s above all a very personal and intimate […]

A Girl And Her Greens by April Bloomfield

April Bloomfield is unarguably a true chef who learned her trade all the way up in some of the world’s great restaurants, such as the well-known River Café or Chez Panisse. This means her food is a combination of simple Italian (think simple ingredients at their best) and classic British. Her first book, A Girl and her Pig […]
