'This book is a thing of complete beauty! Peter is a master of a very elusive art: combining great innovation with a massively delicious tummy-hug.' Yotam Ottolenghi
In this beautiful book, internationally acclaimed chef and ‘ godfather’ of fusion cooking, Peter Gordon, encourages you to throw away any preconceived ideas about what makes a salad and to instead create inventive, mouth-watering dishes that you’ ll want to make time and again.
Created to be enjoyed all year round as a main meal, part of a sharing plate or as a side dish, every recipe combines ingredients that work harmoniously together. Smooth textures complement crunch, a sharp citrus note setting off the sweetness of a roasted grape, a fiery chilli enlivening a sweet mango. Chapters are identified by a core ingredient, be it meat, fish, grain, cheese or vegetable, but no single ingredient is king – it is the perfect combination that makes the dish.
Following Peter’ s ethos that cooking should be fun, creative and fulfilling, you’ ll find these recipes infused with delicious originality. Try dishes as diverse and tempting as: Asparagus, almonds, spiced quail eggs and shiitake miso dressing; Puy lentils, quinoa, pomegranate, roast grapes and tomatoes, chilli mint and basil; Chilli-chocolate teriyaki mackerel with samphire, Jersey royals and orange; Confit duck leg, caramelized onions, almonds, porcini, cavolo negro and blue cheese. There is something here for everyone to enjoy.
