The best cookbooks of the year
The urge to simmer the latest trendy recipe on TikTok has passed? Find your next culinary challenge by leafing through these delicious gourmet books published this year in Quebec. Warning: the visit could taste your homemade dishes.
K for Katrine
This is possibly the most beautiful and comprehensive cookbook of 2021! It contains more than 100 colorful dishes that are relatively easy to prepare, but not at all embarrassing to serve at your table. Many of them have been designed to avoid the main allergens. Minimalist icons indicate what each plate is lacking. Convenient! We have folded almost all the pages, so much the recipes – from brunch to dessert to vegetarian and vegan offerings – made us want.
K for Katrine. The cookbook , KO Éditions, $ 39.95
Loounie cuisine 2
In her second book, Caroline Huard, alias Loounie, goes further than 100% vegetable recipes. She generously shares with us all her tips to pimp the vegan plate without ever lacking in nutrients and especially in flavors. & Nbsp; She directs us towards superhero ingredients, introduces us in particular to the chemistry of food and offers a few variations of its legendary magic tofu.

Les filles fattoush
In this book, Adelle Tarzibachi shares the recipes that are dear to her and which reflect the richness of the traditions of her native Syria. The classic falafel or baklawa dishes are mixed with recipes for less well-known dishes, but just as delicious, and colorful portraits of “fattoush girls”.

Passion pantry – Ottolenghi Test Kitchen
You can never have enough books from kitchen star Yotam Ottolenghi.

M oi j'mange
Gastronomy and eco-responsibility can go hand in hand and this new book confirms it once again. Host Stéphane Bellavance and his colleagues from the show Moi j'mange (broadcast on Télé-Québec) – nutritionist Bernard Lavallée, anti-gaspi expert Florence-Léa Siry and foodie vegan Loounie – offer 75 recipes bursting with plants and local products. Throughout the pages, we also discover advice promoting responsible consumption. Yes, thank you (and well done)!
