The Art & Science of Foodpairing

"We build tools to create culinary happiness" - Foodpairing.com "There is a world of exciting flavour combinations out there and when they work it's incredibly exciting" - Heston BlumenthalFoodpairing is a method for identifying which foods go well together, based on groundbreaking scientific research that combines neurogastronomy (how the brain perceives flavour) with the analysis of aroma profiles derived from the chemical components of food.This exciting new book explains why the food combinations we know and love work so well together (strawberries + chocolate, for example) and opens up a whole new world of delicious pairings (strawberries + parmesan, say) that will transform the way we eat. With ten times more pairings than any other book on flavour, plus the science behind flavours explained, Foodpairing will become THE go-to reference for flavour and an instant classic for anyone interested in how to eat well.Contributors:Astrid Gutsche and Gaston Acurio - Astrid y Gaston - PeruAndoni Luiz Aduriz - Mugaritz - SpainHeston Blumenthal - The Fat Duck - UKTony Conigliaro - DrinksFactory - UKSang Hoon Degeimbre - L'Air du Temps - BelgiumJason Howard - #50YearsBim - UK/CaribbeanMingoo Kang - Mingles - KoreaJane Lopes & Ben Shewry - Attica - AustraliaVirgilio Martinez - Central - PeruDominique Persoone - The Chocolate Line - BelgiumKarlos Ponte - Taller - Venezuela/DenmarkJoan Roce - El Celler de Can Roca - SpainDan Barber - Blue Hill at Stone Barns - USAKobus van der Merwe - Wolfgat - South AfricaDarren Purchese - Burch & Purchese Sweet Studio - MelbourneAlex Atala - D.O.M - BrazilMaría José San Román - Monastrell - SpainKeiko Nagae - Arôme conseil en patisserie - Paris

The Goodness of Raw Chocolate

Kathy Kordalis
Authors:
Kathy Kordalis

Why raw? When cacao beans are naturally fermented and dried rather than roasted, they retain much more of their natural goodness. The process also means the berry and coffee notes found in raw chocolate's flavour are intensified - similar to unsweetened dark chocolate. Plus it's very versatile, works in savoury or sweet dishes and, most importantly, makes you feel good in your body and soul. Part of The Goodness Of series, Raw Chocolate offers well-chosen recipes that minimise cooking to ensure that as any of raw chocolate's nutrients as possible are retained to deliver the best benefits. Kathy provides delicious recipes in an accessible, light and easy way for a wide variety of home cooks, from a quick Berry and Raw Chocolate Smoothie to simple Roast Veg with Raw Chocolate Picada. With tips and tricks and a balanced approach to cooking healthy and nourishing food, she also offers vegan and dairy-free options and healthier twists on classics with a focus on flavour

Eat Mexico: Recipes from Mexico City's Streets, Markets and Fondas

Lesley Tellez
Authors:
Lesley Tellez

Eat Mexico is a love letter to the intricate cuisine of Mexico City, written by a young journalist who lived and ate there for four years. It showcases food from the city's streets: the football-shaped, bean-stuffed corn tlacoyo, topped with cactus and salsa; the tortas bulging with turkey confit and a peppery herb called papalo; the beer-braised rabbit, slow-cooked until tender. The book ends on a personal note, with a chapter highlighting the creative, Mexican-inspired dishes - such as roasted poblano oatmeal - that Lesley cooks at home in New York with ingredients she discovered in Mexico. Ambitious cooks and armchair travellers alike will enjoy Lesley's Eat Mexico.
