'A dream of a cookery book. Sumptuous, tempting with quite beautiful photography.'

Gourmand World Cookbook 2019 award finalist

Author and photographer Atoosa Sepehr offers not just mouthwatering traditional Iranian recipes, but also her own sumptuous photographs of both her food and the people and landsapes of Iran.

Born and brought up in Iran, Atoosa came to work in the UK in 2007, but she never left behind the wonderful flavours of her family and childhood. Cooking these dishes for her family and friends over here has given her the passion to share the authentic, home cooked Persian cuisine with an international readership. The book contains traditional recipes handed down the generations, but converted to fit into Atoosa's busy life. They are delicious and easy to prepare, using ingredients you can get in any supermarket.

'Every time I cook a Persian dish, I feel connected to this long and varied history, knowing that despite changing geographical and political boundaries, Persian cuisine has survived and thrived, bringing people together, sharing and celebrating.' Atoosa

Atoosa's Persian Kitchen is an impressively practical recipe book, but it is a photographic celebration of an entire country, too.

Biographical Notes

Atoosa was born in the Iranian city of Shiraz in 1977. She grew up in Iran and studied at Azad University of Tabriz. Having completed her degree in 2000, she moved to Tehran where she worked as a computer programmer for Iritec Company. In 2001, she moved to London to learn English, and also worked as a web designer. She returned to Iran in 2003 to work in the stock market in Tehran in order to learn about business processes before studying for an MBA, which she completed in 2005.

Atoosa was inspired to start her own company in the Import and Export field and became the Iranian representative for one of the biggest Iranian steel companies in London. This led to her moving back to London in 2007. She decided to devote more time to her passions of photography and food. She became Food Editor of Classic Magazine, and then decided to fulfil her lifetime ambition to create a Persian cookbook, which has allowed her to focus more on her creativity, and love of food, art and photography.

Tiffin

Sonal Ved
Authors:
Sonal Ved

There are more varieties of cooking in India than in the rest of the entire world, yet American cookbooks tend to focus only on what's familiar here. Tiffin encompasses recipes from across the continent, where flavors vary from coconut and tamarind to curry and masala and everything in between. In the West, the cuisine is influenced by Portuguese flavors and the sea, with rich crab curries. In the North, meat dishes, such as tandori chicken and mutton stew, warm the body on a cold Himalayan night. Delhi is known for street delicacies such as flat breads and kababs. And throughout the country are Persian, Thai, and British influences as well.A tiffin is a traditional Indian lunch pail that holds homemade curries, vegetables, rice, and spicy meats. Our expansive cookbook open it up to show the diverse flavors from all of the regions of India, from spicy fish curries to rich dumplings to spring rolls to butter chicken. The 500 recipes are organized by region and then into subcategories of meats, seafood, vegetarian, and desserts. With vibrant illustrations that represent the regional style and mouth-watering photography of the dishes, Indian cooking has never been more accessible or well-respresented.

Les Marchés Francais

Brian DeFehr
Authors:
Brian DeFehr

This luscious cookbook was inspired by the unparalleled experience of shopping the open-air markets of Paris. Author Brian DeFehr was raised on the prairies of Canada and struck out to greener pastures in Winnipeg, Chicago, Montreal, and finally landed in Paris, where he developed an appreciation for the French way of shopping the markets, being in tune with the seasons, and allowing the flavors of an exceptionally delicious country to influence what's for dinner. The star of any French book, though, is always France itself: from the bright and clear ocean flavors of the coastal Mediterranean and the Germanic influences in Alsace and Lorraine to the rich comfort foods and cheeses from the mountainous regions near the Alps, the familiar foie gras and cassoulet of Bordeaux, and the piquant Basque flavors closer to Spain in the South, stirred together in the cosmopolitan melting pot of the City of Light---all of this and more, in 75 glorious dishes. They all happen to be gluten-free, inspired by seasonal market produce, and you'd never guess how healthy they are.Photographer Pauline Boldt has shot every dish in the book, along with atmospheric market shots, ingredient, and process shots. The recipes are inherently simple, focusing on good-quality produce, meats, and clear flavors, and the French mystique is ever present. Its aim is to take the reader on a tour of the best markets Paris has to offer, seasoned with culinary traditions from across France, without ever leaving your kitchen or armchair.
