'Looking forward to Winter with this unique collection,
This review is from: Roast Figs, Sugar Snow: Food to Warm the Soul (Hardcover)
of wintry recipes which celebrate some of the world's most overlooked cuisines by using produce that can be found on our own doorsteps'.
Although winter cooking seems so far from these BBQ days of mid-Summer, at the time of writing, Roast Figs, Sugar Snow: Food to Warm the Soul, to give this super book its full title......really does make one look towards the winter with real log-fire warmth!
The result of five years of travel and research, Ms Henry compiled this book of recipes from colder climates, being originally inspired by childhood memories of 'sugar snow', a 'magic food' from inside a tree that could turn into sweets!
From the author of Crazy Water, Pickled Lemons: Enchanting Dishes from the Middle East, Mediterranean and North Africa, who isn't intrigued to read this equally lovely book of 192 high quality pages, split over 12 chapters, interspersed with Jason Lowe's stunning photography and snatches of wintry poetry?
