AUSTRALIAN. Stevie Parle burst onto the London scene in 2009 with the launch of a new restaurant, Dock Kitchen, earning him the Observer Food Monthly Young Chef of the Year award 2010. The opposite of the usual 'chefy' restaurant fare, Stevie serves an eclectic mix of dishes that in their countries of origin would
all be described as home cooking. Ranging from Mexico to Morocco, from Catalonia to Kerala, taking
in the Mediterranean and the Middle East, here are simple, wholesome and perfectly balanced recipes
for dishes that will warm the heart in winter and cool the palate in summer. Arranged seasonally.The desserts section includes no fewer than 11 superb ice creams; a chapter on ‘new basics' (spice mixes, pickles and breads) completes the book.
