Gayler is a top English chef and this collection of recipes is sure to draw you into the kitchen to make such delicious items as Romaine Lettuce and Nasturtium Soup and Devilled Scallops in Bacon with Garlic Pea Purée and Sage Butter. Most dishes are photographed in colour. 'A diverse collection of do-able recipes'.
For everyone who likes their food hot and spicy, this trailblazing collection will excite and ignite your palate in a whirlwind tour around the spice world. Drawing inspiration from five continents, Paul Gayler combines the tastes and techniques from different cuisines in over 150 innovative recipes for soups and starters, fish and seafood, meat, vegetables, salad, pasta, rice and even bread. By skilfully layering ingredients such as slow-burn ginger, explosive jalapeno and tempering lemongrass, these recipes use chillies and other fiery spices to add interest, and not just fire, to aromatic, perfectly-balanced dishes. If you are a real chilli afficionado, you may want to plunge straight into Fiery Keralan Chicken or Prawns Piri-Piri, yet the Celeriac and Mustard Soup or the Cioppino give you a gentle warming glow as you acclimatise to the really hot stuff.The full repertoire of ingredients, fresh and dried, are introduced with complete descriptions in The Hot Store Cupboard. This section explores origins and uses, looks particularly at the unique spice blends of China and India and contains essential advice on buying, storing and preparing chillies. Together with photographer Gus Filgate, Paul Gayler has created a book that will set your senses ablaze raising not only the heat but also standards of culinary excellence in your kitchen.
