The much-anticipated debut from the author behind the popular food blog Seven Spoons , featuring distinctive, crowd-pleasing recipes; engaging, writerly essays; and the same stunning photography that has earned her website a devoted following.

Roasted Carrots with Harissa Aïoli and Dukkah. Plum Macaroon Cake. Chaat Tostadas. Roasted Peaches with Glazed Sesame Oats. Few food writers have such an insightful, intuitive understanding of flavor--or a more eclectic and inspiring range of culinary influences at work in their kitchen--than Tara O'Brady. Fewer still write with her trademark warmth and thoughtful prose, which Saveur describes as "like pulling up a seat at the table of an old friend."

Seven Spoons is O'Brady's remarkable and much-anticipated debut. In it, she shares more than one hundred of her best and most mouthwatering recipes--crowd-pleasing breakfasts like Blackberry Buttermilk Whole Grain Scones, weeknight staples like Everyday Yellow Dal, and terrifically inventive desserts like Roasted Grapes with Sweet Labneh. These elegant, flavorful, and wonderfully creative recipes, plus the show stopping photography, will have you heading straight for the kitchen to get cooking.

This is a lovely cookbook, with beautiful illustrations, written in a chatty style similar to the tone of author's blog, Seven Spoons. The best recipes in this cookbook are those that use the flavours and spices characteristic of Ms O'Brady's South Asian background in unique and distinctive ways. The worst are those that turn the making of something relatively simple like braised beef into a complex and time consuming activity requiring many steps and ingredients
Some cook books make me want immediately to run to the kitchen and start banging pots and pans around. Other cookbooks make me want to pour a cup of tea and lose myself in the pictures and essays. The Seven Spoons Cookbook falls into the latter category for me.

Beautiful cookbook, but the recipes were a little more complex and specialized than I anticipated.
