Sour – Cookbook GiveawayJanuary 28, 2020 by Jenny
Enter our giveaway (open to US/UK/AU/NZ) to win a copy of Sour: More Than Mere Taste: The Magical Element That Transforms Your Cooking by Mark Diacono.
Mark Diacono is the author of several titles including the award-winning A Year at Otter Farm: Inspiring Recipes Through the Seasons and A Taste of the Unexpected: How to Grow and Cook with Remarkable Fruit, Vegetables, Nuts, Herbs, and Flowers. He has also written a number of books for River Cottage.
The Otter Farm in East Devon, England was started to encourage people to consider growing unusual and forgotten food along with the best of the familiar. Kiwis, sweet cicely, chocolate vines, Japanese wineberries and Vietnamese coriander, pecans, quince, almonds, Szechuan pepper, and mulberries are just a few of the foods grown at the farm.
In Diacono’s latest book, he focuses on my personal favorite taste – sour. I’ve read that with age the number of our taste buds is diminished. Accordingly, stronger flavors become more appealing. At this rate, in ten years I’ll be drinking vinegar straight up, no chaser. Of course, that last bit was a jab toward humor but the rest is true and I do love vinegar.
Sour tells the story of what makes things sour and provides a varied collection of recipes that maximize the power of this taste. Souring skills are taught with sourdough, vinegar (yeah!), fermented foods and more. Recipes begin with components (for example, sourdough starter) to desserts and drinks.
