Book Description

31 Mar 2013
First published in 1981 to great critical acclaim and winner of a prestigious Glenffidich Award that same year, Particular Delights is reissued in a newly designed edition but retains the delightful line drawings by Thao Soun from the original edition. Packed with original ideas and unusual flavour combinations it is a book about the art of eating, as much as the art of cooking. The author has experimented to create recipes which are imaginative and adventurous but believes that the beauty of natural ingredients is that they speak for themselves. Who could resist trying Sun on a Cloud, Rainbow Omelette, Parmesan Puffs, Devils in Overcoats, Courgette and Coconut Soup, Steamed Mouli with Watercress Mayonnaise, Aubergines Confites, Nasturtium and Avocado Salad, Smoked Tea Ice Cream with Crystallised Mint leaves or Chocolate Decadence. There are over 150 recipes divided into sections on cheese dishes, egg dishes, grain, seeds and nuts, fish, poultry and game, soups, vegetables, salads, fruits and flowers, puddings, tea time, the still room and drinks, all designed to appeal to all our five senses.

If you don't find at least one recipe in here that will blow your mind I would be surprised! Simple elegant and easy to follow. Mouth watering in the extreme. Don't think about it - just order it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful "find"----many thanks,Amazon. 1 Dec 2009
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I'd noticed how many recipes by Valentine Warner I seem to have snipped out of The Sunday Times although I've never seen his programmes.I particularly like his enthusiasm for fresh,good ingredients,simply treated.Yes,I know I'm reviewing Particular Delights----.This wondrous,magical little book I had from the library decades ago,and loved it then.When I was ordering V.Warner's books,I was reminded of Particular Delights but couldn't remember the title,nor quite sure of the author,though I recollected well the pretty marbled cover.And cursed again for not buying it while readily available.However,while reading the business pages recently,a thought occurred:try Hambro.You can't imagine how hugely delighted I was to find it on Amazon.Now I'm almost gloating at my luck.This is the same edition,complete with that attractive cover.I see it is available in newer,paperbook editions but I feel almost ecstatic at my good fortune in finding this first edition on Amazon.By the way,it's packed with original ideas and slightly off-beat combinations of ingredients,illustrated with exquisite little line-drawings.I expect the newer editions have facsimile decorations---meanwhile I have a copy I never imagined I'd find.Many,many thanks.
