MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:

Part guide, part cookbook, and peppered with informative visuals, this book tells us why pulses are such an important food for the future, explains how to cook them, and includes over 30 recipes prepared by some of the world's most prestigious chefs. Part I gives an overview of pulses and a brief guide to the main varieties. Part II explains step-by-step how to cook them, and what condiments and instruments to use. Part III underscores five messages about the impact of pulses on nutrition, health, climate change, biodiversity and food security. Part IV illustrates how pulses can be grown in a garden patch with easy gardening instructions and shows how they are grown across the world, highlighting major producers, importers and exporters. Part V takes the reader on a journey around the planet, showing how pulses tie in with regional history and culture, and accompanies 10 internationally acclaimed chefs as they go the market to buy pulses. Back at their restaurant or home, the chefs prepare easy dishes and share their best kept secrets, each one providing 3 recipes that are beautifully illustrated.
