The chef of the much-heralded Mirazur offers personal cooking based on his childhood in Argentina.
We're often unimpressed by efforts of world-renowned chefs to write books for home kitchens. Command of a kitchen brigade, access to remarkable ingredients, and a skillset that makes complicated techniques routine, can combine to distance professional cooks from everyday home kitchen realities. But Le Goût de la Famille does a convincingly charming job of being practical, as well as appealing.
Within you'll find an egg tortilla redolent of freshly chopped parsley, a hearty empanada gallega or tuna tart, roast suckling pig in chimichurri sauce, and delicate quince fritters that resemble starbursts.
Fresh and unpretentious in its ambitions.
