Two Kitchens

Family Recipes from Sicily and Rome

By Rachel Roddy

  • E-Book
  • £P.O.R.

From the winner of the André Simon and Guild of Food Writers comes a book of sumptuous recipes, flavours and stories from Rachel's two kitchens in Sicily and Rome.

From the winner of the André Simon and Guild of Food Writers comes a book of sumptuous recipes, flavours and stories from Rachel's two kitchens in Sicily and Rome. Rachel's first book, Five Quarters: Recipes and Notes from a Kitchen in Rome, won the André Simon Food Book Award and the Guild of Food Writers' First Book Award and she writes a weekly column in Guardian Cook.

'Rachel Roddy describing how to boil potatoes would inspire me. I want to live under her kitchen table. There are very, very few who possess such a supremely uncluttered culinary voice as hers, just now.'
Simon Hopkinson

'This is a recipe book that reflects the way I cook and eat: uncomplicated, direct and adaptable Italian family food that reflects the season. The two kitchens of the title are my kitchens in Rome and Sicily. In a sense, though, we could have called the book "many kitchens" as I invite you to make these recipes your own.'

For the last twelve years Rachel Roddy has immersed herself in the culture of Roman cooking, but it was the flavours of the south that she and her Sicilian partner, Vincenzo, often craved. Eventually the chance arose to spend more time at his old family house in south-east Sicily, where Rachel embraced the country's traditional recipes and the stories behind them. Here she shares over 120 of these simple, everyday dishes from her two distant but connected kitchens. From tomato and salted ricotta salad, caponata and baked Sicilian pasta to lemon crumble, honeyed peaches and almond and chocolate cake, they are the recipes that you will want to cook again and again until you've made them your own.

List of chapters:

Vegetables and Herbs - Tomatoes; Aubergines; Peas; Broad Beans; Cauliflower; Potatoes; Onions; Herbs

Fruit and Nuts - Lemons; Peaches; Oranges; Grapes and Figs; Almonds

Meat, Fish and Dairy - Beef and pork; Chicken; White fish; Fresh anchovies and sardines; Eggs; Ricotta

Storecupboard - Chickpeas; Lentils; Preserved anchovies; Flour; Bread

Biographical Notes

Rachel Roddy writes a weekly column in Guardian Cook. Rachel's first book Five Quarters won the André Simon Food Book award in 2015, as well as the Guild of Food Writers' First Book award.

Rachel has lived in Testaccio, a distinctive working-class quarter of Rome, for over twelve years. She shares a small flat near the food market with her partner Vincenzo and son Luca and spends part of the year in Vincenzo's family house in Gela, south-east Sicily.

Cherish

Anne Shooter
Authors:
Anne Shooter

Praise for Anne's first book:'Sesame & Spice is an absolute treat; full of warmth and generosity, and so many recipes I want to cook, that I've been headily immoderate with my post-it notes!' Nigella LawsonOne of my favourite childhood memories is going round to my grandparents' house in London's East End on a Friday afternoon with my mum and brothers, waiting for my dad and aunts, uncles and cousins to arrive for dinner.My grandma would be in the kitchen, frying onions in schmaltz, checking the potatoes roasting with the chicken and stirring the soup. An apple cake would be on a smart plate on the sideboard and the whole house smelled warm and familiar. And now, every Friday, like my mum and my grandma, and her mother before her, I prepare a traditional, Jewish dinner for my family and friends. But this book isn't only aimed at Jewish people. That's where my recipes come from, but they are recipes that I want to share with everyone. Easy to cook, delicious to eat and full of warmth and generousity.I cook these recipes whenever we have friends or family over - a weekday one-tray supper of chicken, aubergine and bulghar wheat, a Sunday lunch of lamb shanks with apricots or a duck, fig and pomegranate salad for our New Year. I can turn around a veritable feast of a dinner in a couple of hours because these recipes are tried and tested by generations of cooks before me, recipes I will be passing on to my daughters for their own families one day, I hope, and that you will to yours. This is indeed a book inspired by my Jewish roots, but above all, it is a book of food to make for people you love.

Authors:
Miguel Barclay

Over 80 super-simple and tasty recipes that will save you both time and money. Here is delicious food for less.So much more than cheap dinner ideas - here are meals that cost under a pound but look and taste a million dollars! Recipes for the whole family without breaking the bank. Instagram chef sensation Miguel Barclay is taking the world by storm with his delicious meals that cost less than £1 per person. 'I've always loved cooking but I'm not a fan of needlessly over-complicated recipes that waste time and money. So I've created my own style of cooking: simple ingredients, straightforward recipes and mouthwatering meals, all on a budget. Now you can eat the food you love - from meatball marinara to chicken katsu curry, lamb moussaka to aubergine dal - all for under £1 per person.' Miguel's easy-to-follow, ready-in-minutes recipes are for a single serving, and can all be cooked for under £1 per person - just multiply them up for more servings. 'As you would expect from such a relaxed style of cooking, the book is laid out in a similarly laidback manner. There are no chapters or themes. Just flick through the pages and cook whichever dish you fancy. But, as a nod to my Instagram roots and to help you identify types of dish, I have labelled each recipe with hashtags, so if you want to find veggie food, just look out for the veggie hashtags. One Pound Meals are designed to use a core group of ingredients, and this is the key to eliminating waste. Just start with one recipe, and depending on what you have left over, choose your next recipe accordingly. I want you to bounce around the book on a sort of never-ending random journey as you use up those leftover ingredients. It also means you can plan a week's worth of meals in one go and shop more efficiently.' With savvy supermarket shopping swaps and time-saving tips, One Pound Meals makes cooking quicker, easier and tastier, and with less waste. One Pound Meals includes: * Lasagne * Crab mac & cheese * Chicken katsu curry * Pork chop in a mustard & leek sauce * Spaghetti carbonara * Mushroom risotto * Quiche lorraine * Aubergine dal & chapati * Scotch Egg * Ultimate £1 burger * Ham & mushroom pizza * Pancake stack

Honey & Co: The Baking Book

Itamar Srulovich, Sarit Packer
Authors:
Itamar Srulovich, Sarit Packer

Our day is marked by what comes out of the pastry section, and there's always something good on the way: sticky buns full of cherries and pistachios in the morning; a loaf of rich dough rolled with chocolate, hazelnuts and cinnamon that has been proving since dawn and comes out of the oven fresh for elevenses. Lunch is a crisp, crumbly shell of pastry filled with spiced lamb or burnt aubergine, and at teatime there are cheesecakes and fruit cakes, small cakes and massive cookies - so many cakes that it's hard to choose one. (There's no need to worry, whatever you choose will be great!) After dinner there might be poached peaches with roses or something more traditional, sweet and salty Knafe drenched in orange blossom syrup, or maybe just a small piece of fresh marzipan. There's something sweet, something in the oven for everyone, all day long - welcome to Honey & Co.Chapters include:How to be good at baking: general notes; Store cupboard; Sweet & savoury breakfasts; Elevenses; Lunch; Teatime; Traditional desserts

Caribbean Modern

Shivi Ramoutar
Authors:
Shivi Ramoutar

When you think of the Caribbean, a hundred beautiful clichés come to mind - white sand, blue sky, salty breezes and balmy nights. But what of the food? Eating is at the heart of Caribbean life: people come together in the kitchen, someone starts cooking and soon there is laughter, music and fantastic food.Shivi Ramoutar grew up in Trinidad, Leicester and London. As a supperclub host and pop-up chef, Shivi turned to her favourite Caribbean dishes for inspiration. Her recipes are a wonderful melting pot of flavours: traditional Coconut Chicken Rundown sits alongside Red Bean and Spinach Mac 'n' Cheese and Baked Eggs Creole. Her food is fresh and zingy, exciting and exotic, but also satisfyingly homely and hearty. And not forgetting the fun -Salted Tamarind Caramel Sundae, Smashed Banana Pancakes and Peanut Butter and Jelly Cheesecake - without which the book just wouldn't be Caribbean.
