We are pleased to share a promotion for our next EYBD Book, Wholefood Baking: Wholesome Ingredients for Delicious Results by Jude Blereau.

Jude Blereau has led a wholefood lifestyle for over 25 years, long before 'wholefood' was a buzzword for healthy living. She has authored a number of titles on wholefood cooking as well as served on committees on sustainable ethical farming, does her part to promote artisanal skills and more to promote her beliefs. 

Her latest book, Wholefood Baking, includes more than 120 tried and true recipes for cakes, scones, biscuits and pastries as well as delectable creams, icings and jams, many of which are gluten, nut and dairy-free and use whole and semi-refined flours and sugars.

Included with these recipes is advice on how to convert your favourite recipes using whole ingredients. As I page through this title, it would not occur to me that this is a health related baking title. The recipes sound, and the photographs appear, as tempting as those in other baking books. Jude proves that wholefood baking is decadent and tasty with the bonus of being good for us as well.

Kirsten and Nick live at Melliodora in southern Australia - a beautiful permaculture smallholding designed by David Holmgren, co-originator of permaculture. What is permaculture, you ask? Permaculture is an agricultural ecosystem intended to be sustainable and self-sufficient. Remember Matt Damon in Martian? Well this is same but different and far less life threatening. 

With their team the authors teach everything from permaculture design to market gardening, natural building and mushroom cultivation, to help create resilient and abundant households and communities. More information on their courses can be found on their website and in their debut book, Milkwood

This vibrant book is a valuable resource filled with the skills and facts to get you inspired and started on living a handmade, home-grown life. From growing your own vegetables to cultivating mushrooms, it is all here packed along with recipes and photographs that will guide you along the way.

I am looking forward to spring this year, armed with this book to start my garden in our new home. The last two years have been hectic with our move and other issues, that I missed out on planting a garden. This year I hope to do even more besides my usual tomatoes and herb selections and Milkwood will be there by my side.

We are pleased to share a promotion for our next EYBD Book, New Pizza: A Whole New Era for the World's Favourite Food by Stefano Manfredi.

Stefano Manfredi is known fondly in Australia as the 'godfather' of modern Italian cuisine. He has made his mark as chef, restaurateur, an inspired coffee blender, successful cookbook and food writer, an Italian Wine and Food educator and an ambassador of seasonality and sustainability. His book, Stefano Manfredi's Italian Food, is a massive tome devoted to his cuisine with over 500 recipes, and has earned a place on my bookshelf. 

Pizza comes in many styles and the quality of the pizza is defined by the quality of the flour, the dough and the ingredients for the topping. In Manfredi's latest book he takes pizza back to its roots using stoneground, unbleached, wholewheat flour and tried-and-tested methods for kneading and proving pizza dough, showing step by step how to create the healthiest, tastiest base for your pizza. The toppings are great but we know it's all about the crust. I'm a crispy thin crust lover. 

Next comes an incredible range of toppings - the classics like Margherita or Seafood pizza and then a delicious range of new styles including Lamb belly, ricotta and Mediterranean herbs, the Peking duck roll pizza, Fried pizza with pork belly, ricotta and provola and a delightfully named Pillow of dreams, a chocolate indulgence dessert pizza (I can't let my son see that recipe).

There are features with five of Naples' finest pizza chefs and sprinkled throughout are stunning shots of the beautiful city of Naples, the local growers and their produce which really make this a must have title. Manfredi's New Pizza takes pizza back to what it used to be - a healthy and delicious fast food for everyone to enjoy.

Estela by Ignacio Mattos

Estela by Ignacio Mattos with Gabe Ulla is one of my best books of 2018. Mattos is a culinary wizard who weaves flavors and textures with simple ingredients to create brilliance. I was fortunate enough to dine at the chef's New York restaurant, Estela, last spring. It was the best meal I have ever eaten.

The Estela cookbook delivers recipes for many of the restaurant's dishes. The endive salad (recipe below) was divine and I replicated that salad last summer (photo right) for a dinner party (adapting it slightly). It is a salad that makes all other salads wilt in shame.  I ate nearly half the platter when I made it.

At the restaurant after sharing multiple small plates with my dinner companions one of them chose a dessert for us, Panna cotta with honey. I was less than pleased with the choice. When the dessert arrived, I took a taste and would have gladly fought off my two friends to finish the creamy, tangy perfection that is this dish. I have not stopped thinking about it.

I have the Panna cotta setting up in the refrigerator now (photo left). I have made the honey mixture and purchased the bee pollen and cannot wait to share this dessert with my family tonight. Each component tastes exactly as I remember, and it will be a special treat to experience them all together again. 

Estela is a book (and a restaurant) not to be missed. From the restaurant to the page, it is an experience that must be enjoyed to understand its brilliance. Having a meal there or recapturing a dish with the assistance of this cookbook reinforces that a few simple ingredients perfectly orchestrated can be exceptional. There needn't be three dozen ingredients to create a masterpiece; there just needs to be a maestro like Ignacio Mattos to lead the way.

Update: The finished Panna cotta is extraordinary (photo right). Andrew, my son, has declared it "the best thing you've ever made" (disclaimer he says that about a great many things). He loved the vinegar tang and the perfect creaminess of the panna cotta. I've decided this is my dinner for tonight. Panna cotta can be dinner, no?

Special thanks to Ignacio Mattos and Artisan Books for sharing the Endive recipe with our members today and for providing two copies of this must have book in our giveaway below. 


Endive salad with walnuts and Ubriaco rosso
Add this recipe to your Bookshelf (click the blue +Bookshelf button).

It's fun to see people's reactions to this dish. At first glance, it looks like just a pile of endive leaves. But I think there's something really beautiful about it. The way to start is by eating a few of the top leaves, little endive cups holding orange juice and oil, and then begin filling the rest of them with the absurdly delicious crouton-and-cheese mixture hidden below, sort of like making your own taco.

Serves 4 to 6

For the Vinaigrette

  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 4 large anchovy fillets, rinsed and patted dry
  • 2 tablespoons garnacha vinegar
  • ¼ cup (60 ml) extra-virgin olive oil
  • Cracked black pepper

For the Granola

  • 1½ cups (50 g) ½-inch cubes of day-old sourdough (you want a few pieces with some dark crust)
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 cup (100 g) walnuts
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Chile flakes
  • ⅓ cup (40 g) irregular pieces (¼- to ½-inch) Ubriaco Rosso
  • Scant ⅓ cup (about 35 g) irregular pieces (¼- to ½-inch) Pecorino Duro

For the Endives

  • 4 endives
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 medium orange
  • 1 tablespoon chardonnay vinegar
  • Extra-virgin olive oil

Make the vinaigrette:

Pound the garlic cloves into a paste in a mortar with the pestle. Add the anchovies and pound until everything is fairly smooth but still slightly chunky. Add the vinegar, olive oil, and cracked black pepper to taste and mix to combine. The idea is to get a broken vinaigrette with pieces of anchovy still visible.

Make the granola:

Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).

Put the bread cubes on a baking sheet and toss with a few teaspoons of olive oil and a pinch of salt, then spread them out. Spread the nuts out on a separate baking sheet. Toast the bread and walnuts in the oven, tossing them every few minutes. Remove the nuts once they are dark and well toasted, about 8 minutes. Remove the bread once it's dark brown and toasted all the way through, about 10 minutes.

While the nuts are still warm, put them in a mortar, add a teaspoon of olive oil, a pinch of salt, a few generous cranks of black pepper, and a pinch of chile flakes and crush them into coarse chunks with the pestle. Using the bottom of a heavy pan, crush the bread cubes into chunks between ¼ and ½ inch. (With each component, you want a mix of textures and sizes.)

Combine the croutons, walnuts, and cheeses in a medium bowl. Dress with the vinaigrette, mixing well. Let sit while you prepare the endives so the croutons get a little softer and the flavors come together.

Prepare the endives:

Cut an inch off the bottom of each endive and discard. Gently peel back the leaves, continuing to trim the root as you go, until you get to the core (it's the sweetest part of the endive). Cut each core in half lengthwise, or into quarters if it's large, and toss them into the bowl.

To serve, season the endives with a generous pinch of salt. Grate the zest of the orange evenly over the top of the endives, then halve the orange and squeeze the juice over the leaves. Add the vinegar and gently toss the leaves to coat, as you don't want them to bruise.

Spread the granola mixture evenly on two plates. Arrange the endive leaves on top so that they make little cups for the dressing. Sprinkle with salt, spoon on the orange juice mixture left in the bottom of the bowl, and drizzle on a bit of olive oil.

A Very Serious Cookbook

A Very Serious Cookbook: Contra Wildair by Jeremiah Stone and Fabián von Hauske is a tale of two places beloved by chefs and foodies worldwide - Lower East Side tasting-menu restaurant Contra, and its more casual sister, Wildair. The chefs are known for their seasonal cooking style, boundary-pushing creativity, and love of natural wine. This book provides a snap shot of two New York restaurant chefs and what makes them tick.

 

A Very Serious Cookbook includes 85 recipes organized into the following chapters: Always (mainstay, non-seasonal); Sometimes (hyper-seasonal, guest chef collaborations, international travel inspiration); Never (dishes on the menu once, not existent yet, all important); and Pantry. Photographs of finished dishes, its locality, and travel bring the restaurant and its dishes to life. 

These recipes are not for the faint of heart. They require some skill and planning. While more approachable than some high-end restaurant cookbooks, the dishes here are impressive and unlike any others that your dinner guests (or yourself) will experience. This is a book for the adventurous cook - the one who wants to push the envelope and expand their culinary horizons. All of the above is delivered with witty narrative, fun graphics and gorgeous photographs.
