Book Description

3 Jun 2005
Peter Gordon, the celebrated pioneer of fusion cooking, has chosen salads as the focus of his next book - the first by a major chef on this subject. No longer will salads be seen as nothing more than a few limp leaves and a couple of tomatoes. This inspiring book extols the salad as a satisfying main course which excites the eye, delights the tastebuds, fulfils today's drive to eat more healthily - and provides a delicious and satisfying meal. Beginning with an introduction to the key elements which go to create the perfect salad, the book features a dazzling array of ideas including perfect party food like Baby Little Gem Leaves filled with Spiced Peanuts, Green Mango and Mozzarella, everyday suppers such as a warm salad of Chorizo, Olive, Potato and Broad Bean with Crispy Onion and dazzling dinner party centrepieces such as Crayfish, Avocado and Ginger salad with Wild Rocket and Chive Dressing. As well as new ideas, there are also some sparkling re-workings of classic salads such as the Tweaked Tricolore: roast cherry tomato and mozzarella with the addition of guacamole, basil oil and corn chips. There is also advice on different ways of adding 'crunch' to salads with deep fried shallots and toasted nuts, as well as some superb basic dressing recipes. The book also includes information on buying and growing more unusual greens, herbs and other salad ingredients.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant concept, fine salads 24 July 2005
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Incredibly easy, dashing one-dish lunch or dinner-party fare. Have you noticed that guests just don't want to eat piles of stodge anymore? Peter Gordon's Salads are utterly delicious but can be deceptively presented as healthy and even as GI Diet-friendly. Thing is, you can tell he's a chef; basically the setup he imagines is a kind of mise, where you prepare each ingredient separately and then assemble. This can seem like a lot of faff after work, by the time you've toasted this and roasted and peeled that. Some of the recipes have one ingredient too many. But this is a fine book for entertaining; I've now made half a dozen of his salads for dinner or lunch parties and have been complimented every time.

5.0 out of 5 stars I want to be Fitter not Fatter 20 April 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Salads: The New Main Course

Now - MY Main Course - this seems to me the best way to lose weight and love it - Diet is a four-letter word and not worthy to be used. Enjoy a variety of Salads the Gordon Way I could not want another book on Salads
