New restaurants, a colourful new brunch recipe and the latest kitchen gadgets.
As the holidays approach (or is that gallop toward us?), we’d like to point you in the direction of the new release (and great gift idea) Cooking in Color:
Vibrant, Delicious, Beautiful Food, from Vancouver’s Adrian Harris and Jeremy Inglett of The Food Gays blog. There’s a fantastically apropos section inside called “Company,” all about easy, beautiful meals for big groups ( hello, visiting relatives). The duo’s debut cookbook also serves as an intro to food styling and photography, with details about f-stops, angles and props for their gorgeous recipe photos. Another added bonus, which is going to come in handy Christmas morning, is this Mac and Cheese Eggs Benny. You can make the mac and cheese the night before to get a head start, and although it may seem wrong, this pasta-meets-breakfast pairing is all kinds of right. Find the recipe on page 46.
