"To read a book about a country's cuisine isn't simply to go looking for 'good things'; it is also to better know - by means of the recipes - the customs and the richness or poverty of a place, and the spirit of those who inhabit it. It is above all, to participate in the symbolic celebration of the shared repast."

~ Ginette Olivesi-Lorenzi, La Cuisine Mentonnaise



Savoring Tuscany : Recipes and Reflections on Tuscan Cooking

Savoring Tuscany : Recipes and Reflections on Tuscan Cooking (The Savoring Series)
by Lori De Mori

Part of the Savoring Series, which is one of my favorite series of books about Regional Cuisine, Savoring Tuscany is a beautiful book filled with sumptuous recipes and delectable writing about the cuisine and culture of Tuscany. As with all the books in the series, Savoring Tuscany is put together beautifully and all of the recipes are well written and presented. The recipes that we tested were all superb and the book is an excellent source for fans of Tuscan cuisine.

Tomato, Mint and Lime Salad

Recipe Submitted by Michael Humphrey.

According to Michael, "This is not a Thai dish but it's a great salad." We think it is definitely Thai inspired and makes a great addition to any Thai dinner.

Ingredients:

6 medium firm tomatoes
8 shallots
fresh mint - 8 to 12 stalks
cup of lime juice
teaspoon of chilli powder

Preparation:

1. Cut the tomatoes into wedges
2. Chop the shallots
3. Chop the mint
4. Combine the lime juice an chilli in a small bowl and stir.

Method:

1. Combine the tomatoes, shallots and mint in a salad bowl, stirring gently so as not to break the tomato wedges.
2. Pour the lime juice and chilli over the salad bowl mixture.
3. Refrigerate for 1 hour - occasionally stirring the mixture so that the lime juice and chilli flavours the salad mixture.
