Summary

A collection of over 80 classic and modern recipes from MasterChef semi-finalist Theo Michaels; paying homage to his heritage by championing new modern dishes inspired by the flavours of Greece and Cyprus.
Kali orexi is the Greek equivalent of bon appétit and this enticing book will certainly whet your appetite! Organized in chapters entitled Meze, Sea, Land, Sun and Fire, Theo's recipes evoke a sense of connection to nature, seasonality, abundance and sociable eating. Fresh ingredients sing from the plate, from juicy watermelon and glossy kalamata olives, to fragrant oregano-roasted lamb and delicate vine-leaf-baked sea bass. Meze features mouth-watering small plates for sharing from whipped dips to meatballs. The sea is woven into Greek culture and seafood is a staple; enjoy the freshest fish and shellfish cooked simply and served with a squeeze of lemon juice. Meat is a huge part of the Greek diet – rabbit, goat, chicken, lamb are the mainstay with pork enjoyed at Easter celebrations. Cooking over charcoal is part of daily life. The Cypriots use a large rotisserie famous for its souvla (long skewer), while mainland Greece make souvlaki and both BBQ and oven-roasted dishes are included here. Greek yogurt, along with artisan cheeses (feta, halloumi etc.) can be eaten hot (saganaki) or shaved into vibrant salads and the traditions of 'horta' means there are plenty of vegetable dishes to enjoy. Finally, Greek desserts are often just a sweet note to savour with a bitter black coffee or you may prefer a Greek-inspired cocktail such as an Ouzo Sour.

    “If you’re obsessed with gnocchi and all of it’s easy-to-make relative shapes, there’s no better book on the market.” —Epicurious   Pasta is the ultimate comfort food, and making it by hand is a favorite project for weekend cooks. From rising culinary star and 2012 Food & Wine Best New Chef Jenn Louis, this book includes more than sixty-five recipes for hand-shaped traditional pastas and dumplings, along with deeply satisfying sauces to mix and match. Louis shares her recipes and expertise in hand-forming beloved shapes such as gnocchi, orecchiette, gnudi, and spatzli as well as dozens of other regional pasta specialties appearing for the first time in an English-language cookbook. With photos of finished dishes and step-by-step shaping sequences, this beautiful book is perfect for DIY cooks and lovers of Italian food.  “The luxurious sauce recipes in the last chapter are worth the price of admission alone and feature traditional ragús of lamb, rabbit, porcini, tomato, beef, and wild boar. This single-focus cookbook is written with both authority and a passion for ‘some of the most soulful Italian food we can eat.’” —Publishers Weekly  “With passion and authenticity, Jenn Louis has captured the diversity of the regional pastas, from Trentino-Alto Adige, down to Puglia, and over to Sardinia. This book is a must-read for anyone looking to learn about true Italian food and culture.” —Marc Vetri, award-winning chef of Vetri Family restaurants  “She’s gone to the source and rubbed floury elbows with nonnas and professional cooks alike, and then written the Italian dumpling gospel. What a delightful—and important—primer she’s given us!” —Julia Della Croce, author of The Pasta Book

    <p?Gingerbread is a lovely, squidgy treat which has played a part in almost everyone's childhood. But do you know what gingerbread was made of when it first arrived on our plates; was it flavoured with honey? When did treacle,  dark, sticky, and on its own, fairly strong tasting, which adds moisture, depth of flavour and character to baking, first become available? Then there's the question of when gingerbread migrated from the home kitchen to commercial products. And why did the gingerbread man leap from the tin, and run so fast with a fox snapping at his heels?
    With 100 colour photographs by the author and from historical sources, and 150 recipes for traditional gingerbreads, biscuits, cakes and savoury dishes, this is a unique book.
