Lateral Cooking Foreword by Yotam Ottolenghi

Lateral Cooking Foreword by Yotam Ottolenghi

Author: Niki Segnit, Yotam Ottolenghi Format: Hardback Release Date: 23/08/2018

'You could cook from it over a whole lifetime, and still be learning' Nigella Lawson `A rigorous, nuts-and-bolts bible of a book' Jay Rayner, Observer `Lateral Cooking...uncovers the very syntax of cookery' Yotam Ottolenghi `Astonishing and totally addictive' Brian Eno The groundbreaking new book that reveals the principles underpinning all recipe creation, from the author of the bestselling The Flavour Thesaurus Do you feel you that you follow recipes slavishly without understanding how they actually work? Would you like to feel freer to adapt, to experiment, to play with flavours? Niki Segnit, author of the landmark book The Flavour Thesaurus, gives you the tools to do just that. Lateral Cooking is organised into 77 `starting-point' recipes, reducing the phenomenal variety of world cuisine down to its bare essentials - and then building it back up again. So, under `Bread', we learn that flatbreads, oatcakes, buckwheat noodles, chapattis and tortillas are all variations on one theme. A few simple tweaks and you can make soda bread, scones or cobbler. And so on, through breads and batters, broths, stews and dals, one dish leading to another. Lateral Cooking is as inspirational and entertaining a read as it is a practical guide. Once you have the hang of each starting point, a wealth of flavour possibilities awaits, each related in Niki's signature combination of culinary science, history, chefs' wisdom and personal anecdote. You will realise that recipes that you had thought were outside of your experience are reassuringly similar to things you've made a dozen times before. It will give you the confidence to experiment with flavour, and adapt with the seasons or the contents of your fridge. You will, in short, learn to cook `by heart'- and that's where the fun really begins.
