Salmagundi is a 17th century English expression denoting a salad dish comprising, well... everything. The nearest modern equivalent is Fiambre, a Guatemalan salad containing in excess of twenty ingredients. This comprehensive new book from acclaimed author, Sally Butcher, looks at salad bowls across the world in 150 recipes. The recipes feature a number of archaic, traditional and staple dishes - and a whole lot of funky new stuff as well.
Divided into fourteen chapters (Herbs and Leaves; Vegetables; Beans; Roots; Grains and Pasta; Rice; Cheese; Fish; Meat; Dips; Fruity Salads; Salads for Pudding; The Dressing Room; The Prop Cupboard), no stone is left unturned in pursuit of the ultimate salad recipe. Recipes are flagged where relevant with tags such as ''super-healthy'' or ''skinny-minny'' or ''main course'' to make it more user-friendly. Heavily punctuated with Sally's trademark mixture of folklore and anecdotes, this is an essential update for the foodie bookshelf.
