Pardiz A Persian Food Journey
Pardiz A Persian Food Journey
Pardiz is a personal journey into Manuela Darling-Gansser's "paradise past". Having lived in Iran for the first nine years of her life, she returned as an adult to reconnect with the country she remembered so fondly. This book is a celebration of that time; a compilation of memories, stories and beautiful recipes that underline the depth and broad appeal of this great and enduring food culture.

In Pardiz, what Darling-Gansser does is show how seamlessly Persian food fits with trends of today: flourishing food markets; the primacy of local ingredients; the health-giving aspects of vegetable-centric dishes; and the joys of a shared table. The latter is a theme in her book - and in her life.

In her choice of recipes, she gives a sense of the diversity of Persian food - whether it is served in a restaurant, eaten at home, prepared for a picnic, or enjoyed on the street, the setting can determine what is served. Ultimately, she focuses on recipes that are not too complicated or time consuming - recognising the great virtue that is simplicity. And encouraging readers to embrace the sociability that goes with the food as much as the food itself.

Parwana Recipes & Stories from an Afghan Kitchen
Parwana Recipes & Stories from an Afghan Kitchen
Interwoven with traditional Afghan recipes is one family's story of a region long afflicted by war, but with much more at its heart. Author Durkhanai Ayubi's parents, Zelmai and Farida Ayubi, fled Afghanistan with their young children in 1985, at the height of the Cold War.

When their family-run restaurant Parwana opened its doors in Adelaide in 2009, their vision was to share with the world their family memories through the delights of Afghan cuisine, infused with Afghanistan's rich historical culture and traditions of generosity and hospitality, to offer a more complete picture of the country they had left behind.

These fragrant and flavourful recipes have been in the family for generations and include rice dishes, dumplings, curries, meats, Afghan pastas, chutneys and pickles, soups and breads, drinks and desserts. Some are everyday meals, some are celebratory special dishes. Each has a story to tell.

Pastry Chefs Guide
Pastry Chefs Guide
'Pastry is an art but it is also food so remember to stay in touch with your ingredients, reflect the seasons in your food and, for the love of God, don't use strawberries in December.'

This is a book aimed at chefs and home bakers alike who FEAR baking.The message: pastry is easy. Written by pastry chef extraordinaire, Observer Food Monthly 50 and Code Hospitality 30 Under 30 Ravneet Gill, this is a straight talking no-nonsense manual designed to become THE baking reference book on any cookery shelf. This is the written embodiment of Ravneet's very special expertise as a patisserie chef. She has a natural flair and razor-sharp wit that gives her enormous appeal.

Starting with a manifesto for pastry chefs, Ravneet then swiftly moves onto The Basics where she explains the principles of patisserie, which of ingredients you just need to know (gelatine, fresh and dried yeast, flours, sugar, chocolate, cream and butter), how to line your tins, understanding fat content, what equipment you really need, oven temperatures and variables to watch out for. This section alone will give the reader enough knowledge of baking to avoid the pitfalls so many of us take when baking. Chapters are then organised by type of patisserie: Sugar, Custards, Chocolate, Pastry, Biscuits, Cakes, Desserts and Puddings, Ingredients and Equipment. So whether you want to make a lighter-than-air birthday cake, flaky breakfast pastries, smooth and rich ice creams (or parfaits 'because parfaits are for when you're in the shit'), macarons or meringues, Ravneet will offer just the right advice to make it all seem easy.

Pastry Love A Bakers Journal of Favorite Recipes
Pastry Love A Bakers Journal of Favorite Recipes
James Beard award winning baker Joanne Chang is best known around the country for her eight acclaimed Flour bakeries in Boston. Chang has published two books based on the offerings at Flour, such as her famous sticky buns, but Pastry Love is her most personal and comprehensive book yet. It includes 125 dessert recipes for many things she could never serve in the setting of a bakery - for example, items that are best served warm or with whipped cream on top. Nothing makes Chang happier than baking and sharing treats with others, and that passion comes through in every recipe, such as Strawberry Slab Pie, Mocha Chip Cookies, and Malted Chocolate Cake. The recipes start off easy such as Lemon Sugar Cookies and build up to showstoppers like Passion Fruit Crepe Cake. The book also includes master lessons and essential techniques for making pastry cream, lemon curd, puff pastry, and more, all of which make this book a must-have for beginners and expert home bakers alike. AUTHOR: An honors graduate of Harvard College with a degree in Applied Mathematics and Economics, JOANNE CHANG left a career as a management consultant to enter the world of professional cooking. She started at Boston's renowned Biba, then Bentonwood Bakery, Rialto, and New York's Payard Patisserie and Bistro, and finally Mistral. She returned to Boston with dreams of opening her own pastry shop. In 2000, she opened Flour, a bakery and cafe, and has since opened seven more locations in Boston and Cambridge. Flour has been featured in Gourmet, Food & Wine, Bon Appetit, the New York Times, and Conde Nast Traveler and has received numerous Best of Boston awards. Chang also competed, and won, on Throwdown with Bobby Flay. In 2007, she opened a Chinese restaurant, Myers+Chang, with her husband, Christopher Myers. She is the author of four other cookbooks and was the recipient of a James Beard Award in 2016 for Outstanding Baker in America. 100 colour photographs
