About Season: Big Flavors, Beautiful Food
"Season features 100 of the most delicious and intriguing recipes you've ever tasted, plus 270 of the most beautiful photographs ever seen in a cookbook. Here Nik, beloved curator of the award-winning food blog A Brown Table, shares a treasury of ingredients, techniques, and flavors that combine in a way that's both familiar and completely unexpected. These are recipes that take a journey all the way from India by way of the American South to California. It's a personal journey that opens new vistas in the kitchen, including new methods and integrated by a marvelous use of spices. Even though these are dishes that will take home cooks and their guests by surprise, rest assured there's nothing intimidating here. Season, like Nik, welcomes everyone to the table." - A Brown Table
In his engaging style, Nik’s writing combines flavors of India with more familiar ingredients and recipes, such as Deviled Eggs with Creamy Tahini and Za’atar, and Spicy Chocolate Chip-Hazelnut Cookies.
“Quite simply beautiful food—wide-ranging, inspiring, and infused with an enlivening and generous sensibility” — Nigella Lawson, author, At My Table
“It's rare to open a cookbook and leaf through it in wonder at the flavor combinations. That's what Nik Sharma's book did to me: it's full of dishes that are crying out to be cooked and photographs that have a gorgeous dark elegance. Nik Sharma is a rare talent.” — Diana Henry, author, A Bird in the Hand
