Flavour by Vicky Bhogal
Hardback. Very good condition. 2009
In Flavour: A World of Beautiful Food, Vicky Bhogal takes an array of delicious ingredients and shows how to combine them according to their flavour in simple and imaginative ways, to create exciting new dishes.
As she says, 'I am delighted by the fact that, in the little corner of the metropolis I have made my own, I am able to draw from a rich, sprawling heritage of centuries of ingredients traversing their way across the globe. That with a flick of a lid or stir of a spoon, I can add the perfumed whisper of a Persian court, an echo of cool pine forests at twilight or the faint tap of a tango on cobbled alleyways to my daily urban life, while the cars roar by outside.'
Containing over 100 mouth-watering and inspiring recipes, including Wafer-sliced Duck Risotto with Spiced Plums and Star Anise, Tiger Prawn and Mandarin Soup, Turkish Delight Chocolate Ice-Cream Drops and White Pears on Black Ice, Flavour is an enchanting book for cooks of all abilities who want to try something truly different.
