Spice: Recipes to Delight the Senses

Overview

Overview

Many people use the bare minimum when it comes to spicing up their food, sticking with the standards of salt and pepper, cinnamon and nutmeg, oregano and basil. But spices should be a sensual feast that enlivens the palate, seduces the taste buds and tantalizes the mind. Spice is anything but dull, a cookbook love affair with the exotic and under-appreciated, and draws on spices and aromatics from countries such as Sri Lanka, Japan, Singapore, Tunisia, China, Thailand and Mexico.

Spice includes a plethora of delicious recipes such as Saffron Prawn Risotto, Asparagus and Fragrant Curry Sauce, Smoked Eggplant and Spicy Masala Sauce, and Tangelo Cardamom Ice Cream. With a comprehensive spice index, a description of the wide variety of spices available today and a huge selection of recipes including everything from appetizers to drinks and desserts, Spice will add zest to everyone's palate.

Library Journal

From the first page, you're welcomed into an exquisite book that is a cross between an encyclopedia and a recipe collection from a world traveler. In the first section, each page wafts with a description and special characteristics of numerous spices ranging from the everyday, e.g., "cinnamon," to the exotic, e.g., "asafetida." For the exotic, no need to worry; world-renowned Australian chef Manfield informs you what type of ethnic market the spice can be found in, and if that fails, the directory of spice suppliers will be of value at the end of the text. The opulent photographs of the succulent recipes-ranging from Oxtail Consommé with Dumplings, a Chinese inspiration, to Peppered Venison Fillet with Wasabi Potato and Horseradish Cream-are the perfect accompaniment. This popular text is for experienced cooks and for those who want to expand their taste palates. For larger public libraries and culinary schools.
