Giveaway Bitter - Recipe Book

Another lovely book published by Jacqui Small titled Bitter written by Jennifer McLagan; exploring the complex world of this under-appreciated flavour, Bitter takes readers on a journey through the spectrum of bitterness, using ingredients such as grapefruit and citrus zests, chicory, chocolate, beer and tobacco.  

The book is divided into different categories such as greens, liquids, vegetables and fruits and also looks at surprisingly bitter, dark and very bitter foods; what do coffee, IPA beer, dark chocolate, and radicchio all have in common?  They’re bitter.

While some culinary cultures, such as in Italy and parts of Asia, have an inherent appreciation for bitter flavors (think Campari and Chinese bitter melon), little attention has been given to bitterness in North America: we’re much more likely to reach for salty or sweet.
However, with a surge in the popularity of craft beers; dark chocolate; coffee; greens like arugula, dandelion, radicchio, and frisée; high-quality olive oil; and cocktails made with Campari and absinthe - all foods and drinks with elements of bitterness - bitter is finally getting its due.
