Explore over 60 breads, cakes, cookies and dishes inspired by his life, travels and food obsessions. Geek out with him over ‘intelligent’ black rice cake, homemade Pocky, the tangled histories of puff pastry and a breathtaking luncheon meat extravaganza. Learn how to make Banhmiclairs, smoked cloud cookies, bundt cake with built-in frosting and much more. Follow theNerdBaker through the oven door into a whole new baking dimension.
Featuring over 90 recipes with full coloured photos and written in a casual, approachable style, this cookbook makes the perfect gift for fans of Artichoke, Bjorn or uninhibitedly rockin’ food in general.
Bjorn Shen, chef-owner of popular and rebellious restaurant Artichoke, reveals the scrappy stories and recklessly creative recipes behind his deviant Middle Eastern enterprise in this no-holds barred memoir-cookbook. Expect stories on cooking accidents, tasteless jokes, masochistic behaviour, epic staff meals, ridiculous customer complaints and more.
His penchant for unapologetic, full-blown flavour is also reflected in recipes that run the gamut from Middle Eastern-inflected basturma-cured tuna to borderline insane offerings of Oreo ‘pancakes’, a Mamee salad and a humongous lamb shoulder called, appropriately, The Lambgasm.
Scrap the notion that healthy is boring. Eat consciously, live mindfully: wise words from Onaka restaurateur Rosalind Lim and head chef Jason Vito. Combining nutritional science, culinary innovation and a deep appreciation for fresh produce, their dishes draw from East and West. Creations such as the Chilli Crab Pasta, Eggplant Bacon and Roasted Mushroom Soba sit alongside desserts like the sugar-free Double Chocolate Torte or dairy-free Hazelnut Chocolate Mousse Cake. This book promises to do equal good for the waistline, heart and soul.
