MY FAVOURITE INGREDIENTS
by SKYE GYNGELL
New hardcover book. 256 pages, published 2008.
An enticing collection of recipes based on the author's favourite things.
Acclaimed chef and food writer Skye Gyngell's cooking naturally follows the ebb and flow of the seasons, taking advantage of the best produce when it is seasonally available. My Favourite Ingredients focuses on the 16 key ingredients she loves cooking the most - prime foods such as fish and shellfish, cheese, nuts, pulses and grains that always feature in her menus; seasonal favourites including asparagus, cherries, tomatoes and game that she particularly loves; and, flavour enhancers like garlic, olive oil, vinegar and honey which are such an important part of her cooking. Her extraordinary ability to combine produce in a way that brings out their freshness and flavour result in dishes that are layered with light, clean flavours, softly marrying to provide a wonderful taste experience.
In My Favourite Ingredients, the highlights include Raw White Asparagus with Porcini, Roasted Hazelnuts and aged Parmesan, Monkfish and Coconut Curry with Curry Leaves and Lime, Fritto Misto of Artichokes and Lemon with Mint and Anchovy Vinaigrette, and Chocolate Pannacotta with Blackberries and Warm Honey. Throughout this book, there are fascinating features on the key ingredients, varieties of leaves, tomatoes and apple and how to use them when they are at their best.
