This review is from: Roast Figs, Sugar Snow: Food to Warm the Soul (Hardcover)
A fabulous book about the food we want to cook when it's cold outside. The food is from New England, Quebec, Scandinavia, Russia, north-west Europe and other places where the winters can be fiercely cold.
I haven't cooked from it yet, but there are so many things I want to cook from it: Georgian Cheese-pies, Tartiflette, Russian Curd Cheese pancakes, Russian Zakuski, Peasant Girls in a Mist (a cake with apples/cinnamon; originally Scandinavian), The Dartmoor Inn's apple bread, Beef Pie with wild mushrooms and claret....in fact, I want to cook everything in this book - which is rare for me! Not only does it all sound delicious, but the recipes seem easy and straightforward, the kind of food you actually cook at home.
The book is beautiful lay-outed, many pretty pictures, and lots of text introducing each chapter makes it a good bed-read!
I can highly recommend this book.
