Book: Purple Citrus and Sweet Perfume

One of my aims for this blog is to feature cookbooks I own, and share my journey using them. So to begin, I was given Purple Citrus & Sweet Perfume by Silvena Rowe for Christmas.

Visually stunning, Silvena leaves you wanting to taste each dish on every page. Some stand out, ‘wouldliketotry’ recipes include:

Jerusalem Artichoke Hummus Topped with Lamb and Sumac

Smashed Cucumber, Mulberry and Pistachio Salad

Pomegranate Glazed Kebabs with Spiced Pomegranate Chutney

Red Mullet with Pine Nuts, Currants and Gremolata

Cumin-scented Broth of Celeriac, Summer Squash and Orange

Pink Peppercorn and Cardamom Meringues with Mulberries and White Chocolate

Between discovering pink peppercorns at my local deli, and having fresh cucumbers growing in my garden a few of these recipes are one step closer to being attempted.
