And yes, plenty of beautiful photographs from as far as Georgia!!!
I think this book is here to stay and I love the unpredictable and alluring content, there is some elegant prose too.
I've enjoyed exploring this book and producing some 'different' meals. I was a little dubious that, as a vegetarian, many of the recipes would be inappropriate, but I have found a lot to cook here. Many of the meat recipes are actually for mince, so Quorn/soya can be easily substituted, and there are many ideas for puddings and vegetables. The book is attractively laid out, with engaging photographs, and interesting snippets of cultural information. The only slight quibble I have is with the quality of the actual paper, which seems poorer than is usual for a cookery book of this quality
The recipes had a different take on many ingredients that I use on a weekly basis ones ABD have never come across before which is unusual if you buy as many cookery books as I do.
I would recommend this book and try the recipes with Gusto
The moldovan moussaka is delicious! I substituted the mince for breadcrumbs and squash for a veggie version.
The Georgian Kachapuri bread is delicious!
The borscht is delicious- love the grated apple! (even without the meat)
The gyuvech is delicious! (but better with added sumac)
The recipes are not all easy to follow and some are time-consuming.
looking forward to cooking more of these gems. Also, I like the photography.
