Corsica: Recipes and Stories from a Mediterranean Island
Corsica
Recipes and Stories from a Mediterranean Island
Hardcover      ISBN: 1925418529

A sumptuous book exploring the incredible food of France's sunny island of Corsica.

This beautifully photographed book celebrates all that is Corsican--the people, the geography and, most importantly, the food. And with around eighty incredible Corsican recipes designed to be prepared in the home kitchen, you'll be transported to the island in no time.

Relatively unexplored by visitors from outside Europe (although it attracts an estimated three million from France annually), Corsica is a Mediterranean island steeped in a rich food culture. With incredible geography--from the mountains to the plains and the stunning coastline--Corsica has long been a well-loved idyll for those in the know. It is also home to a unique cuisine--blending the best of French and Italian food--that respects its homegrown produce: citrus fruits, grapes, chestnuts, cheese, herbs, fish, seafood, and charcuterie.

But Corsica is more than a collection of recipes, as the book also brings together portraits of those who live and work there, and those instrumental in maintaining Corsica's rich food culture.

"A new kind of flavor-first vegan cooking. . . . Stunning."
--Food & Wine

"Best Food Books of 2015"
--USA Today

Reinventing plant-based eating is what Tal Ronnen is all about. At his Los Angeles restaurant, Crossroads, the menu is vegan, but there are no soybeans or bland seitan to be found. He and his executive chef, Scot Jones, turn seasonal vegetables, beans, nuts, and grains into sophisticated Mediterranean fare--think warm bowls of tomato-sauced pappardelle, plates of spicy carrot salad, and crunchy flatbreads piled high with roasted vegetables. In Crossroads, an IACP Cookbook Award finalist, Ronnen teaches readers to make his recipes and proves that the flavors we crave are easily replicated in dishes made without animal products. With accessible, unfussy recipes, Crossroads takes plant-based eating firmly out of the realm of hippie health food and into a cuisine that fits perfectly with today's modern palate. The recipes are photographed in sumptuous detail, and with more than 100 of them for weeknight dinners, snacks and appetizers, special occasion meals, desserts, and more, this book is an indispensable resource for healthy, mindful eaters everywhere.
