One Spice, Two Spice

Over 140 recipes from the chef of New York City’s world-famous Tabla restaurant. Cardoz is truly one of the world’s most exciting innovators. This collection bridges the gap between the Western palate and the wonderful taste memories that have remained so pungent from the food of his childhood in Bombay and Goa. It is a book for home cooks who wish to enjoy the flavours of India but who might have been intimidated by the unusual and numerous spices required. Cardoz renders these spices user-friendly, and shows you how to seamlessly integrate these new flavours into your cooking through his tried and tested techniques – with stunning results.

Floyd Cardoz was born in Bombay and after culinary school in India and Switzerland moved to New York. In 1997, together with Danny Meyer, he created Tabla, which was given three stars by the New York Times shortly after it opened. One Spice, Two Spice is his first book.

Mexican Kitchen

Rick Bayless is the world’s leading writer on Mexican food and until the publication of this award-winning book, the food loving public have had few authorities to help translate the heart of this world class cuisine to everyday cooking. His recipes provide inspiration and guidance, mixed with passion, clarity and humour. Mexican Kitchen has established itself as the ‘Bible’ of Mexican cooking, and is a must for all lovers of Mexican food.

Reviews

• Winner of the Julia Child Cook Book Award

‘Before Rick Bayless, Mexican food was misunderstood and underappreciated by most Europoeans; after Bayless that should all change.’
Loyd Grossman

‘The definitive guide to recreating the country’s tastiest mortsels’
The Daily Express

‘Here’s the book that will give you more uses for hot peppers than most. Chipotle, poblano and habanero – Bayless describes their distinctive qualities and instructs on their deployment in the salsas and flavouring pastes that form the basis of 150 recipes which make up the bulk of the book. But upfront he offers simpler suggestions for splashing their flavour into casually instant dishes.’

‘Crammed with information and insight’
Somerfield Magazine
