Wagamama Ways With Noodles by Hugo Arnold

Hugo Arnold turns his attention to wagamama’s core expertise—noodles: how to cook, serve and eat them. The distinctive wagamama flavour originates from traditional Japanese ramen stalls that guaranteed nourishment with ingredients to cleanse and nurture the mind and body. Hugely versatile, noodles can be used in side dishes and dressed for salads, poached in a heady broth for soups, form a nest for meat, fish and vegetable stir-fries or used as a bed for curry. They are healthy too: high in complex carbohydrates, low in fat, and mostly served with fresh vegetables, lean meat or fish and aromatic herbs and spices.
Brush up on your noodle knowledge and get to know your soba from your somen. Try mouthwatering recipes including wide-noodle hot-pot with seven vegetables, warm chicken teriyaki salad, chargrilled chicken, soba and miso soup, and marinated salmon ramen. Look no further for delicious noodle recipes for every occasion; minimum fuss and maximum enjoyment are what wagamama noodles are all about.

Skillet Fried Chicken, The Hot Chicken Project by Aaron Turner. Photography by Julian Kingma.

The Hot Chicken Project is more than the sum of its parts. Yes, it’s a cookbook, but it’s also a narrative, a photographic celebration and most importantly, it’s Aaron Turner’s love letter to his obsession. This book is about immersing yourself into the world of hot chicken. So, to plunge you into this journey along with Aaron, we have a fun offer.

For acclaimed Australian chef Aaron Turner, hot chicken isn’t just food—it’s salvation in crispy, fried and devilishly spicy form. In The Hot Chicken Project, he travels back to Nashville, the place of its birth, to pay his respects to the makers, to chart the love and obsession that has shaped his world, and to make sure that what he does back home is doing it justice. Part cookbook, part pilgrimage, The Hot Chicken Project is both an epic love letter to the fiery bird and a celebration of a way of life that is in danger of vanishing forever.

The Hot Chicken Project is part recipe book (40 recipes covering the best mains, sandwiches, sides, salads and sauces), part narrative, part pictorial celebration of the history and power hot chicken holds over the city of Nashville—and now beyond (including Melbourne!). (more…)

Chicken Stew with Dumplings

When the first people migrated to Ireland around 10,000 years ago, they ate out of necessity. Yet, these first peoples ate food that we still encounter today: oysters, seaweed, nuts, berries, and fish; and brought with them knowledge and foods from other lands. Since then, Ireland continued to cement its gastronomic character as nations collided and combined—the Celts, Vikings, Normans, Anglo-Saxons, and later the English all brought with them their own culinary traditions.

In The Irish Cookbook, acclaimed chef Jp McMahon masterfully brings these varied influences together, demonstrating the high quality of the ingredients that have been the backbone of Ireland’s cuisine, celebrating the unique culinary culture of the island, and honouring the historical roots of its hearty flavours.

Several years in the making, The Irish Cookbook contains more than 500 home- cooking recipes. McMahon undertook the mammoth task of bringing together hundreds of authentic Irish recipes into one impressive volume: he sought out and adapted old recipes, drew on the wealth of archival material available in the National Library of Ireland, and trawled through the books of Ireland’s best food writers, pulling together classic dishes, seeking out lost recipes, and learning about the uses of ancient ingredients.

The featured dishes have been organized into 15 chapters by ingredient: eggs and dairy; vegetables; shellfish; freshwater and saltwater fish; poultry; wild game; boar and pork; lamb, mutton, and goat; beef; breads, scones, and crackers; cakes, pastries, biscuits, and desserts; pickling and preservation; stocks, sauces, and condiments; and drinks, shrubs, and syrups. The Irish Cookbook spotlights both authentic traditional recipes such as Colcannon, Bacon and Cabbage, Coddle, Dingle Pies, Soda Bread, Gur Cake, and Barm Brack as well as fresh new takes on classic dishes or native ingredients, such as Oysters with Wild Garlic Butter; Baby Carrots with Buttermilk and Tarragon Oil; Crab Claws with Seaweed and Samphire; and Chicken with Morels and Cider.

The Irish Cookbook also includes an index of the wild Irish herbs, plants, seaweeds, and fungi that McMahon values for their culinary uses. These ingredients have been a common thread in Irish cuisine through the ages, and though some may only be found in a particular part of Ireland, reading about them will add depth to any understanding of the history and development of Irish food, and should inspire readers to look differently at their own food culture and cooking.

With beautifully evocative images of over 120 recipes and landscapes, and exquisitely designed with a rich mossy colour palette, The Irish Cookbook vividly evokes the warmth, hospitality, and culinary spirit of the Emerald Isle.

The Irish Cookbook is available at Amazon.com an Indigo.ca.

Super swaps include falafel made with cauliflower and Caesar salad made with a cauliflower-based dressing, even cauliflower nachos, “bacon” bits, tots, and French toast.

The recipes are healthful and easily adaptable for any diet without skimping on flavour or satisfaction. By harnessing the power of this anti-inflammatory veggie, readers will reap all the benefits of a plant-based diet without missing out on any of the good stuff.
