Homemade Preserves - Marquesa de Parabere
Together with 'The complete cookbook' and 'confectionery and pastry making', the culinary classics The Complete Kitchen by the Marquise of Parabere is one of those rare cookbooks that is considered 'the bible' of fine dining. Generation after generation, this has been the essential reference book for cooking, since it was published over 70 years ago.
The first edition from 1936 has been reproduced, meaning that all of the original recipes are still doable and amazing today! The author herself explained in the prologue of the first edition that they are 'homemade preserve recipes, that have been passed down from mothers to their daughters, and have now become available for us to make, being tweaked and perfected over the years. They are so classic and good that it would be a disaster to lose these recipes!'.
'La Marquesa' (the marchioness) adds all of her knowledge about cooking and gastronomy to her cookbook, perfecting some of her methods, and adding a 'bit of science and a touch of modern technology', as well as including some recipes for preserves from different countries!
Pulses and vegetables; fish and seafood; meats, poultry and game; fruit... The reader will find many forgotten recipes, and will discover how to improve others that they already know and remember the flavour that they tried during their childhood.
