This week, we have Elly McCausland’s beautiful book The Botanical Kitchen to be won – itself the winner of the 2019 Jane Grigson Trust Award – given out for excellence in non-fiction culinary books.
The Botanical Kitchen places botanical ingredients at the fore, emphasising the power of a few small ingredients to transform and enhance food the world over.
The choice of botanicals can transform a recipe, adding a new twist to a classic or creating surprising and rewarding combinations, and in this award-winning book, Elly McCausland guides readers through cooking with botanicals, looking at their culinary history and diverse uses over the years. Weaving through this compelling text will be 90 delicious recipes including relishes and tarts, salads and soups, noodle bowls and breads and everything in between, offering unique and insightful flavour pairings.
From the common to the curious, Elly's debut book takes an in-depth look at our love affair with every part of the plant. Chapters include fruits (tropical, Mediterranean and orchard), leaves, flowers, seeds and berries, beautifully illustrated with photography by Polly Webster.
We have three servings of this book to dish up to lucky winners. To be in to win, tell us your favourite garden-grown edible thing and why (in 25 words or fewer). Our favourite three answers will WIN a copy of the book!
Entries close midday Monday 22 June, Sydney/Melbourne time.
