Home Farm Cooking – Catherine & John Pawson
Home Farm is the Oxfordshire house of Catherine and John Pawson and, as such, is a showcase for John’s detailed and pure architectural vision. If you are wondering how central food and cooking are to their lives when they are at this house . . . it has three kitchens!
The book is arranged by season, starting in spring with a celebration of the foodstuffs that arrive thereabouts: rhubarb, purple sprouting broccoli and organic Amalfi lemons among them. It features recipes for broad bean crostini, chickpea, feta and orange salad and nettle risotto. Through the other seasons there are further tempting recipes for aubergine parmigiana, apricot frangipane tart, caramelized fennel and jerusalem artichoke soup.
As you would expect from such stylish authors the layout and photography of the book are suitably seductive.
