-- L'Art de la Table
has been awarded "second cookbook of the year" by the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards panel of judges, announced at the awards ceremony in Yantai, China.
It was already been named as the best Mediterranean cookbook in the Netherlands by the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards and called "culinary work of art" in the Dutch press.L'Art de la Table
by Gintare Marcel is perhaps the most romantic Mediterranean cookbook ever published. It started with an admiration for the Mediterranean Region, its customs, its scent and the colours that we all know too well from our holidays to the Mediterranean. The French way of life, combined with an aperitif culture and long dinners during the long hot evenings at the seaside are the sources of inspiration for self-made photographer and culinary author Gintare Marcel. L'Art de la Table takes the reader through the Mediterranean areas with familiar as well as unknown recipes for culinary delights for every moment of the day. From pastas, soups and main courses to snacks; more than 100 international recipes with really magnificent photography. But with her images Gintare also shows the reader the areas she loves so much and of which she is part of. From the women in the market or the café on the corner to the family dinners in the garden with children and friends.
