Turkish-Cypriot dishes with a modern twist

Turkish-Cypriot dishes with a modern twist

'Fantastic Turkish-Cypriot food' - Yotam Ottolenghi

'Welcome to the extremely tasty world of modern Turkish-Cypriot food - what a stunning and beautiful book' - Peter Gordon

'This woman can bloody cook' - Grace Dent, Evening Standard

'Keep an eye out for Selin Kiazim, because she is going places, in every conceivable way' - Giles Coren, The Times

'Swoon' - Time Out London

With influences from the Mediterranean, Southern Europe and the Middle East, Turkish-Cypriot food offers incredible flavour combinations unique to its region. Oklava: The Cookbook celebrates the culinary delights of this area in a way no cookbook has done before.

Oklava translates simply as 'rolling pin'. For Selin Kiazim, this word conjures up memories of her Turkish-Cypriot grandmother: a rolling pin was never far from her hands, which meant a delicious treat was imminent. The same can be said for this book. These sensational recipes will take you on a journey from home-cooked meals and summers spent in North Cyprus to an exciting interpretation of modern Turkish-Cypriot cooking in London.

Bring the Oklava experience into your home with Turkish delights such as Pistachio-crusted Banana & Tahini French Toast with Orange Blossom Syrup & Smoked Streaky Bacon; Grilled Quails with Palm Sugar, Sumac & Oregano Glaze; Courgette, Feta & Mint Fritters; Crispy Pomegranate-Glazed Lamb Breast with Yoghurt; Chilli-Roast Cauliflower; and Chocolate, Prune & Cardamom Delice.

Biographical Notes

Selin Kiazim developed her love of cooking at an early age, and her food takes inspiration from her Turkish-Cypriot heritage, focused around communal eating. Selin has worked for acclaimed chef Peter Gordon at The Providores in London Marylebone, later becoming head chef at Kopapa, before taking up residency at Trip Kitchen. She opened Oklava with her business partner Laura Christie in London's Shoreditch in November 2015.

Ethiopia

Yohanis Gebreyesus
Authors:
Yohanis Gebreyesus

The national borders contain one of the most fertile swathes of land on the continent. All this makes for a food culture as fascinatingly distinct as it is startlingly delicious. Chef Yohanis takes the reader on a journey through all the essential dishes of his native country, along the way telling wondrous stories. There are recipes for Doro Wat, chicken slowly stewed with berbere spice; Yeassa Alichia, curried fish stew; and Siga Tibs, flashfried beef cubes. The cuisine also boasts a wealth of vegetarian dishes. Among these are Gomen, minced collard greens with ginger and garlic; Azifa, green lentil salad; and Key Shir, marinated beet and potato salad. Then the book explains the intricacies and variations of Injera, the foundational sourdough flatbread made from the teff grain (which is gluten free and more nutritious than wheat). Complete with photography of the country's stunning landscapes and vibrant artisans, this volume demonstrates why Ethiopian food should be considered as one of the world's greatest, most singular and most enchanting cuisines.

30 Years at Ballymaloe: A celebration of the world-renowned cookery school with over 100 new recipes

Darina Allen
Authors:
Darina Allen

When Ballymaloe's doors opened to students in 1983 there were 15 courses available. Now there are over 100, reflected in the recipes collected here, including curing meat, making gluten-free meals and sushi as well as learning forgotten skills like producing butter and cheese and beekeeping. The book chronicles how the school has been at the forefront of cooking and food trends since its inception, from Darina's championing of the Slow Food movement and her highlighting the importance of using local, seasonal and fresh produce to installing a wood-burning oven and expanding its gardens so students can learn the importance of eating less meat and more veg and preserving heirloom varieties of produce. A fascinating insight into Ballymaloe, this is also a history of food over the past thirty years, from a time when Darina couldn't get anything other than pre-packaged, grated Parmesan cheese to one where a local producer makes his own mozzarella.
