SALADE II-- MORE RECIPES FROM THE MARKET TABLE
TUESDAY, DECEMBER 10TH AT 7PM
Right on time to save you from questionable holiday madness meal choices, Chaucer's Books is pleased to welcome Pascale Beale, for a holiday signing of Salade II-- More Recipes from the Market Table.
Beale has a passion for salads. In this eagerly anticipated follow-up to her best seller Salade, Salade II is a veritable celebration of this dish. Building on the classics from her first volume, this new edition transforms salads into the highlight of any meal.
Grouped by key ingredients in fourteen chapters, with stunning full-page photos of every recipe, delightful anecdotes, practical tips, and uncomplicated recipes that work every time, Salade II is a compendium of one hundred tempting, healthy, plant-based dishes, brimming with vibrant hues, and an abundance of innovative ingredients and creative flavor combinations.
In Salade II, the author’s recipes were inspired by, amongst other things: the unexpected gift of a salad bowl, goat cheese, Peach Bellinis at Harry’s Bar in Venice, Italy, an entrepreneurial meeting with women business owners, her neighbor’s tomatoes, an unusually long rainy season which yielded a plethora of sumptuous mushrooms, and of course, the exquisite produce found in her local farmers markets, whether in London, France or California, the places she calls home.
"One of my favorite meals is a great salad, and this book is one of the best collections I’ve seen of salad recipes... delicious and mouthwatering. Pascale Beale you have done it again!" — Cat Cora, Iron Chef and Restaurateur
Surrounded by a family passionate about food, wine and the arts, Pascale Beale grew up in England and France where she learned classical French culinary techniques from her grandmother, and Provençal-Mediterranean cooking from her mother. With a deep-rooted love for cooking at an early age, and later encouraged and inspired by her friendships with Julia Child, Michel Richard and Alain Giraud, in 1999 she founded Pascale’s Kitchen, a Santa Barbara, California-based cooking school devoted to California-Mediterranean cuisine.
