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.
