Everything about this book is a delight. With delicious and interesting recipes and traditional home-cooked meals, accompanied by stunning pictures that really drive the instinct of "I have to make this!" Carpathia is a mouthwatering collection of dishes ready to take you on a journey around Romania. From vibrant salads and beloved mezze-style appetizers to intriguing main courses and seductive desserts, Georgescu celebrates Romanian food and explores the country's rich culinary heritage. As a Romanian national it gives me fond memories of home – I hope to try every recipe at least once!
I love cooking, but sometimes a long day slinging books means I don't have the time, patience, or energy to make something labor-intensive. Enter Christopher Kimball's new cookbook, featuring my favorite flavors and a robust selection of vegetarian meals to satisfy and delight. I've really enjoyed making the green shakshuka, the asparagus pasta, and the ricotta pesto, and have already bookmarked a lot of other recipes to try. This book is very accessible for beginner chefs, but the flavors are so exciting and advanced that no one will know it took you 30 minutes to make.
I swore that I would never buy another cookbook, but one glance at these pages and I was ready to purchase. There are lots of scrumptious recipes that will please every palette including those of vegans, vegetarians, gluten-free, and nut-free eaters. Many dishes are both company-worthy and easy to make on a hectic day. Some of my favorites are: warm roasted asparagus and baby potato salad with French green lentils; zesty lime, cayenne chickpea, and sweet potato salad; Hungarian mushroom and wild rice stew. With gorgeous photos, easy to follow directions, and information galore, this cookbook will be a go-to for years to come.
