Relish. Easy Sauces, Seasonings and Condiments to Make at Home, by Sonia Cabano.
Sonia Cabano's cookbook 'Relish. Easy Sauces, Seasonings and Condiments to Make at Home' offers 280 recipes cover flavoured salts, sugars and rubs, spice blends and pastes, marinades, dips, stocks, sauces, dressings, pestos, vinegars, oils, pickles, preserves, condiments and relishes.
Capturing and enhancing flavour has preoccupied passionate cooks throughout the ages, and the methods employed are as popular today as ever: salting, pickling, smoking, drying, preserving in brine, alcohol, sugar or oil, or simply seasoning with aromatic rubs, pastes, marinades and dressings. A well-stocked larder speaks of the highest level of a cook's craft, of knowing how to enhance flavour naturally and how to preserve the fruits of the harvest from one season to the next. No cook means to serve bland or indifferent food. This book is intended as a handy guide for anyone who cares about their palate, their wallet and their health. Home-made preparations are usually less pricey than store-bought ones and are certainly free from harsh-tasting and unnecessary fillers, additives, colourants or chemical preservatives. Using a few easily obtainable pieces of equipment, plus the best ingredients you can find and some common sense and skill, you can liven up your everyday cooking with the marvellous bounty which nature blesses us with throughout the year. You will reap other rewards too: as your palate adjusts to the purity and freshness of home-made preparations, you'll start enjoying time spent cooking and eating. An added bonus is that all the recipes make superb gifts, so you'll be twice blessed for your labours! Ever since I was a child in my mother's kitchen I have been fascinated by the craft of preserving foods. I love to imagine how, through the generations, countless hours have gone into perfecting a luscious preserve or a seductive spice blend with which to please and nourish someone else. The recipes on these pages embody many years of accumulated knowledge, both my own, through experimentation, and that of others, which they have passed on to me. Some dishes and recipes are seemingly imprinted into my cultural DNA, while others are based on careful research into the work of fellow cooks who are equally filled with a passion for flavour and for making the most of food. Writing this book has given me great pleasure, and I hope that you will thoroughly enjoy using it.
