Simply Citrus – Marie AsselinMarch 31, 2018 by Jenny
Simply Citrus by Marie Asselin delivers a beautifully photographed book with 60 vibrant recipes using a variety of fresh citrus fruits, including lemons, pomelos, oranges, limes, mandarins, kumquats, grapefruit, and citrus products such as yuzu juice, orange blossom honey, and preserved lemons.
Marie’s blog, Food Nouveau,
won the 2017 International Association of Culinary Professionals
(IACP) award for best recipe-based blog. She describes herself as a
cook that “mostly bakes” and the baked goods shared on her blog and
in this book are stunning (as are her savoury options).
Living in Canada, where the winters are cold and snowy and “very long”, she often relies on the arrival of seasonal citrus fruits to brighten her days and her meals. This reliance has resulted in her prolific ability to create citrus-centric recipes that are fresh and vibrant for any season.
Savory lemon and olive oil cakes, Sticky ginger and mandarin
pork loin with herb noodle salad, and a gorgeous Grapefruit and
pomegranate pavlova are just a few of the delightful dishes
included in this cookbook that utilizes citrus in appetizers,
soups, salads, main dishes, desserts, and drinks. The book also
offers Marie’s tips throughout such as explaining the differences
in fruit varities as well as how they are best used.
