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.
