A book bringing together typical homemade cuisine with eighty simple recipes for everyone to make at home. Mother’s cooking, traditional cooking, brought up to date, but keeping its ties to the very deeply rooted need to recover and perpetuate the most authentic dishes loved by everyday people. Uncomplicated, non-technical recipes, but with Joan Roca’s special touch. The book contains three types of recipes: our mother’s dishes, the ones we’ve known our whole lives; adaptations for modern palates, with less fat or sugar; others that represent the evolution of traditional recipes with modernized flavors.
The book is structured with the classic organization of recipes: starters, fish, meat, eggs, vegetables, sweets. And it will give a brief introduction to basic techniques, with clear, uncomplicated explanations. An homage to all our mothers’ cooking.
