This book is all about fruit: 240 mouth-watering pages
filled to the brim with new recipes that show cooking with fruit in a new
light; from a multitude of delicious salads such as Apple, Fennel and
Watermelon Radish, Citrus Salad with Avocado Vinaigrette, main courses
featuring succulent dishes as an Apricot and Lamb Shank Tajine or Citrus
Salmon to myriad desserts such as an Eton Mess, a Pear and Pomegranate
Pavlova or perhaps an Apple and Pear Strudel, all these dishes celebrate
fruit in all its guises.
About the Author:
Surrounded by a family passionate about food, wine and the arts, Pascale Beale grew up in England and France where she was trained in classical French culinary techniques by her grandmother, and in classic Proven'al cooking by 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, she founded Pascale's Kitchen in 1999, a Santa Barbara, California-based cooking school solely devoted to the fusion arts of California-Mediterranean cuisine.
In addition to being a highly sought-after guest chef at events throughout California, and a favorite presenter and lecturer at wineries in Santa Barbara and Santa Ynez Valley, Pascale is a regular contributor to Edible Santa Barbara magazine and has been published in Food and Home, Santa Barbara Magazine, 805 Living, Carpinteria Magazine, Coastal View News, and Santa Barbara Seasons.
Pascale is author of the four-volume Mediterranean-influenced cookbook series, A Menu for All Seasons: Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter as well as the highly acclaimed Recipes From the Market Table series, including Salade, Les Fruits and Les L'gumes. Ms. Beale also publishes The Market Table, a farm-to-table blog located at www.pascaleskitchen.com, a foodie's favorite website where her many book titles, select housewares, and gourmet food products are available.
