Here's a sneak peek at a few recipes from inside this fabulous cookbook.
This dish is basically the best kind of breakfast pizza (the breakfast pizza that’s got a runny egg on it, not the breakfast pizza that’s cold leftovers from the refrigerator, although that’s super good too), but with a shape that’s more conducive to holding a runny egg. It’s the iconic shape of the Georgian cheesy bread, khachapuri. And while a traditional khachapuri wouldn’t have kale in it, the alliteration is as fun to say as it is to eat. The other stars of this show besides the kale and egg are tangy labneh and a really honorable amount of garlic. Mmm breath.
This schnitzel variation is a nod to my Chinese side and comes nestled in steamed gua bao, or “taco buns,” as they’re more commonly referred to in our house. These buns are a dangerous combination of salty, squishy, sweet, sour, crunchy, spicy, and mayo-y.
This hotdish bursts with the flavor of the Moroccan spice mix ras el hanout and gets a nice bit of sweetness from dates and coconut milk, whose richness is balanced by a squeeze of lemon and sprinkle of fresh parsley.
