SAVOUR: SALADS FOR ALL SEASONS
(£25, Jacqui Small)
Peter Gordon has his � ngers in a lot of
restaurant pies, including � e Providores
and Kopapa in London, another two
in homeland New Zealand and menu
consultation for Gourmet Burger Kitchen.
Burgers aside, his heart clearly lies with
lighter bites, as Savour is his second book
on salads in a decade. � is beautifully
photographed update o� ers a � exible
approach, with many recipes � agged as
being suitable as starters, mains or sides. I found the carrot,
Manchego, orange and agave syrup salad overly sweet and
lacking texture, although the method was straightforward.
� e abundance of great-looking recipes (for veggies and
meat-eaters alike) could lure me back, but be warned, many
ingredients are not easy to � nd, so planning is essential.
