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.
