Bistro

Author: Laura Washburn Hutton Format: Hardback Release Date: 20/10/2020

Experience the enduring pleasure of traditional French cooking with over 60 uncomplicated recipes for every home cook. French cookery is one of the best in the world, and with so many dishes gaining a new wave of popularity, you'll see it appear time and again on the menus of bustling bistros and fine dining restaurants.

This is the beauty of French cooking - what basic ingredients are gathered, are transformed into something utterly tasty and delightful. In Bistro you'll find no shortage of classic dishes. From Appetizers and Soups to Meat and Seafood recipes, on to Salads and Sides right through to Desserts, there are gems to be found for everyone to enjoy. Start your dinner with a selection of Crudites, a Vegetable Bouillabaisse or Tuna Carpaccio. Move on to marvellous and mouth-watering mains such as a buttery Lemon Sole Meuniere, a veggie Ratatouille or a simple Steak & Frites.

The dozen master recipes-from flaky to tender to cookie crumb crusts and fruit to cream to chiffon pies-will become part of every pie maker's repertoire and will open the door for bakers everywhere to conjure pies with self-assurance. There are gluten-free crust options for every pie, including Apple Ginger Maple Bourbon, Raspberry Peach Sunset Chiffon, Double Chocolate Banana. Plus recipes for easy homemade ice cream and Pie-Lets for one or two. Gorgeous colour photography by Andrew Scrivani brings Pie Camp to vivid life.

Think of food that s made for enjoying in the company of family and friends. Food that offers a limitless variety of ingredients, flavors and cooking styles - and, best of all, is amazingly easy to prepare. What have you got? Fondue, of course! Now, with The 125 Best Fondue Recipes, you can explore a whole new world beyond the familiar cheese and chocolate fondues. Discover the possibilities of hot oil fondues with tantalizing recipes such as Ginger Beef Fondue, Zesty Lime Chicken and Tempura Cauliflower. Experience savory broth fondues such as Mongolian Hot Pot, Honey Garlic Chicken Fondue and Thai Pork Fondue in Lemongrass Broth. These fondues not only taste great, but are kind to your waistline! Of course, no fondue book can ignore the traditional favorites. And here cheese fondue gets an innovative spin with recipes such as Emmentaler Fondue with Caramelized Shallots and Cheddar Cheese and Beer Fondue. Similarly, no true fondue meal is complete without a chocolate-, fruit- or liqueur-based dessert. So you'll want to sample such decadent finishes as Bittersweet Chocolate Fondue, White Chocolate and Toffee or Cherries Jubilee Fondue. And because fondues are all about dipping (and tasting!), it only makes sense that The 125 Best Fondue Recipes features some 20 dips and sauces that are specially designed to complement the recipes in the book. Also included are menu planning suggestions, a guide to using and maintaining different types of fondue pots, as well as tips and techniques for making your next fondue meal an event to remember.
