Karen Mordechai, the acclaimed Brooklyn-based author of the adorable Sunday Suppers blog, is creating a series of cookbooks focussing on eating through the seasons.
This is the first book of the two book series and these are recipes Karen eats and cooks every day at home.
Everything Karen does is beautiful.
Her new book is no exception.
Every dish is perfect, every photo is gorgeous.
So beautifully designed and with a stunning layout, it is a shame to keep it in the kitchen as this is a cookbook you would also have as a coffee table book.
'Simple Fare Spring/Summer' is clear and conversational and feels like reading the words of a friend sharing their favorite recipes.
The recipes are approachable, however also ideal for those who love to cook and experiment.
One of our favourite recipes from Karen's book is this dark chocolate cake using Cyprus Flakes & dried rose petals to finish off - a stunning but simple recipe.
This recipe uses the quality ingredients that Karen is known for; rich extra-virgin olive oil, quality dark chocolate for the utmost flavor and sea salt flakes with crunch to add texture and enhance the chocolate.
Top this cake with seasonal fruit or add an exotic touch of dried rose petals and then finish with a sprinkle of the Cyprus Sea Salt flakes .
This beautiful chocolate cake embodies the balance of sweet and salt.
Makes 8 servings.
