Salt & Time

Alissa Timoshkina
Authors:
Alissa Timoshkina

Salt & Time will transform perceptions of the food of the former Soviet Union, and especially Siberia - the crossroads of Eastern European and Central Asian cuisine - with 100 inviting recipes adapted for modern tastes and Western kitchens, and evocative storytelling to explain and entice. Why not try the restorative Solyanka fish soup (a famous Russian hangover cure), savour the fragrant Chicken with prunes or treat yourself to some Napoleon cake.'Often we need distance and time, both to see things better and to feel closer to them. This is certainly true of the food of my home country, Russia - or Siberia, to be exact. When I think of Siberia, I hear the sound of fresh snow crunching beneath my feet. Today, whenever I crush sea salt flakes between my fingers as I cook, I think of that sound. In this book I feature recipes that are authentic to Siberia, classic Russian flavour combinations and my modern interpretations. You will find dishes from the pre-revolutionary era and the Soviet days, as well as contemporary approaches - revealing a cuisine that is vibrant, nourishing, exciting and above all relevant no matter the time or the place.' - Alissa Timoshkina'If anyone had to write a Russian cookbook now, it would have to be her, and her book will end up being a classic' - Olia Hercules, author of Mamushka and Kaukasis

The chopping, stirring, simmering and tasting along the way, makes the experience...I believe that cooking food slowly is the ideal method for transforming basic ingredients into something very special.' - Dean EdwardsCook Slow features 90 delicious slow cooker recipes, all with conventional oven options, which will make you fall back in love with food again.

Authors:
Annie Rigg, Annie Rigg

From traditional toffee, fluffy clouds of marshmallow and creamy maple and pecan fudge to sherbet with lolly dippers, the recipes in Sweet Things are the stuff of childhood dreams. Soft, delicately flavoured nougat bars, topped with vanilla caramel and covered in chocolate are just big enough for three or four (big) bites and far surpass the shop-bought equivalent. Crisp butterscotch popcorn with just a hint of sea salt is the perfect adult indulgence, a box of Praline Hearts makes a delightful Valentine's Day gift and chocolate dipped honeycomb is tailor-made for Father's Day. The recipes come with failsafe instructions that will ensure success every time, even for novice confectioners, plus creative packaging ideas, making this the ideal book whether you want an imaginative present for someone special or merely to treat yourself.
