Modern Mediterranean recipes
One of Mallorca's top chefs, Marc Fosh, who was the first British chef in Spain to be awarded a Michelin Star, has just released a new cookery book. Called Modern Mediterranean, it features 'sun drenched recipes from Mallorca and beyond,' by Fosh who still has the Michelin accolade in his Marc Fosh Restaurant in Palma's Convent de la Missio hotel.
The book is available on Amazon in paper and Kindle form and the price varies between countries but the hardback is around the 20 mark in Euros, Dollars and Pounds.
Here's what Amazon say about 'Modern Mediterranean;'
“In this book, Marc Fosh, the Michelin-starred chef behind Palma de Mallorca's Restaurant Marc Fosh, takes us on a tour of the bountiful produce of the Mediterranean and shows us how to harness its flavours in new and exciting ways. Organised into 18 chapters by key ingredient; covering everything from tomatoes, garlic, almonds and olive oil to octopus, chorizo, saffron and truffles, the book is a love letter to the Mediterranean and its food. The recipes include new twists on classic dishes, such as Yellow Gazpacho with Smoked Salmon and Avocado or Saffron, Raspberry and Orange Blossom Crème Catalan, as well as less familiar fare, including Herb-roasted Guineafowl with Couscous Salad and Sobrassada and Honey Croquettes with Almond Aioli.
Each chapter opens with a fascinating introduction explaining the history and provenance of each ingredient, with information on key suppliers and when each ingredient is at its best. With 100 delicious recipes accompanied by stunning photographs and beautiful, specially commissioned, on-location photography this is a true love letter to the region and a must-have book for anyone interested in Mediterranean cookery, both classic and modern.”
If you've ever been to his restaurant, you'll want to relive your time there by buying Marc's book, and if you've never been, you should go, as the food, service, ambiance and décor are all superb and are excellent value for money.
