Makers Bible Crafting Cuisine is for those who love to spend time in the kitchen, cook with hand and heart, try new things and celebrate a consciously prepared meal in good company. This time it is for those who passionately cook and appreciate using the best handmade tools and ingredients. This book shows on 352 pages over 130 makers and crafters.
Five chapters guide the reader from the field and garden to the kitchen, where things get cut and heated, with various interesting devices, we open the pantry on all things storable, stock up the bar cabinet and finally serve and celebrate food consciously prepared, whether it’ll be simply toasted sandwiches or a five course dinner.
Foodies, connaisseurs and gourmands — admittingly this book is not for beginners. It is rather a book for hobby chefs and hosts who like to get to the next level. And to the source: All relevant makers and crafters are accompanied by QR codes that lead the reader directly to the source, the makers’ online presence.
Less meat, more veg. Culinary tastes are constantly evolving, and we evolve with them. Vegetarianism and veganism are now at the heart of many restaurant menus and shopping lists. Alcohol-, gluten- and lactose-free products have long since shed the label “alternative”. Seasonality and localism have become increasingly important to eco-conscious chefs and consumers, but creative fusion of cuisines and techniques – across countries and continents – will always provide a healthy cross-fertilisation of ideas that whizz tradition and innovation through the cultural blender.
Feature articles, based on interviews with makers tell us about the quality a true original embraces, whether it’ll be an artisan copyright protected innovation, such as the Feuerring or maintaining a crafting tradition looking back at a 100 years history, such as those of La Marzocco. We spoke to the kitchen planners and builders of Dross & Schaffer about the role the kitchen has in today’s architecture and today’s families.
