This comprehensive book from acclaimed author Sally Butcher looks at salad bowls across the world in 150 recipes. The recipes feature a number of archaic, traditional and staple dishes - as well as more modern recipes for quick dinners and lunch on the go.
Divided into fourteen chapters (Herbs and Leaves; Vegetables; Beans; Roots; Grains and Pasta, Rice, Cheese, Fish, Meat, Dips, Fruity Salads, Salads for Pudding, The Dressing Room, The Prop Cupboard), no stone is left unturned in pursuit of the ultimate salad recipe. Recipes are flagged where relevant with tags such as `super-healthy' or `main course' to make it more user-friendly. Seasoned with Sally's trademark mixture of folklore and anecdotes, and with photography from renowned food photographer Yuki Sugiura, this is an essential book for any cook.
Sally Butcher is the fiery-haired proprietress of the notable Persian food store Persepolis in Peckham, London, which she runs with her Persian husband, Jamshid. She is a bestselling author and avid blogger, who has amassed a devoted online following for her food-, shop- and Peckham-related musings. The foodie delights of the Middle East are her specialist subject, but she has been known to venture far and wide for inspiration. Her first book, Persia in Peckham, was published to critical acclaim and short-listed for the 2008 Andre Simon Award. It was also selected by the Sunday Times as their cookery book of the year. Her following tomes, Persepolis, Veggiestan and Snackistan, published by Pavilion, have also received critical acclaim.
