Mouthwatering recipes, beautiful & lively cookbook
on 22 May 2014
I'm really delighted with this new cookbook from my local food mecca Brixton Village. The book & recipes really reflect the upbeat diversity of Brixton Village, and the passion of the chefs in the many small, specialist restaurants that line the walkways. It's also beautifully illustrated so very pleasing to browse, a bit like the market itself.
I've found the recipes I've used so far easy to follow with delicious results. I didn't even know there was such a thing as Japanese tapas, so Okan's otsumami section is a revelation - easy-to-find ingredients combined to make dishes I never would have thought of that have had my friends begging for more! Looking forward to Kaosarn's moo-ping - thai pork skewers with a kick...
It's a real treat to have a book with such a range of distinctive styles that tie together into a beautiful whole.
