Culinary Tea (Book Review)

Culinary TeaCulinary Tea, by Cynthia Gold and Lisë Stern, had been on my wish list for a long time.

While I’m not very active in the kitchen, I do try some recipes every once in a while.

Obviously, if the recipes involve tea, I’m much more interested 🙂

The book is divided into two parts.

Part 1 is a general introduction to tea: history, types of tea, and how to pair tea and food, among others.

Part 2 is where the fun begins. It’s about the techniques of cooking with tea and where many recipes are shown.

The recipes are divided into starters, entrées, and tea beverages.

I want to try making the genmaicha vegetable soup, green tea gnocchi with tomatoes and greens, and the fruits in tea syrup.

While the book is well written, I think that some more pictures would help. It’s hard to imagine what some of the finished dishes look like.

But other than that, I had a good time reading the book, and will have an even better time once I try my culinary tea creations.

If you’re interested, here’s the link to this book on Amazon.

      Hi Gabie

      Sorry for the late reply. I made the soup and it was very good! I added some rice to make if more filling.
      I haven’t tried other recipes, but I will do so soon.
