Martine Nouet : à table : Whisky from glass to plate
This attractive new cookbook takes an original slant on whisky as an accompaniment to good food. Martine Nouet is an authority on both whisky and French cuisine, and her book presents 60 recipes honed from her many years of experience as whisky presenter and cook. The recipes are divided into three sections, appetizers, main courses and dessert/cheese. On the facing pages are exquisite photographs by John Paul with a profile on the best whiskies that match each recipe. In addition an introductory chapter is devoted to the principles involved in the pairing of food and whisky, and how to achieve a prefect harmony.
All the recipes have been tried and tasted by gourmet palates. Eric Obry, the amazing chef of Le Petit Gourmand in Aberlour (Speyside), has prepared each dish. To add panache to the book, there is a foreword by the world-acclaimed whisky writer, Charles MacLean, who has incidental fame for his role in Ken Loach's film The Angel's Share. Martine Nouet's new cookbook should become a true shelf companion to all who care about whisky and good cuisine. Don't let her words evaporate into an angel's share!
