A Guardian Book of the Year for 2017 From the winner of the Observer's Rising Star Award and Fortnum & Mason Debut Food Book Award 2016 comes a celebration of the food and flavours of the Caucasus - bridging Europe and Asia and incorporating Georgia, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Iran, Russia and Turkey. Olia Hercules introduces us to more than 100 recipes for vibrant, earthy, unexpected dishes from across the region such as Plum fruit leather, Chestnut plov with pumpkin crust, Quince stuffed with lamb & carmalised shallots, Vine leaf dolma, Village breakfast, Khachapouri, Armenian "cognac" profiteroles and Red basil sherbet. 'A sensitive, personal journey expressed through the beauty of food - just wonderful' - Jamie Oliver 'Olia Hercules is a storyteller-foodwriter, and a wholly original voice in the kitchen - there's not a recipe of hers I don't want to cook immediately' - Nigella Lawson 'This is an incredible book - as I began to leaf through I started to smile, and I didn't stop' - Diana Henry 'Each recipe has a story, making this a fascinating read as well as a stunning cookbook' - BBC Good Food 'If the cooking of the Caucasian region isn't yet on your radar, it soon will be. (...) These gorgeous, flavour-packed recipes will give you a taste of what you've been missing' - delicious. magazine
