Everyday Cookingsmart dishes with great ingredientsMathias Dahlgren
Forget those dull domestic science lessons you had at school! With the help of Mathias Dahlgren’s Domestic Science for Grown Ups, you will not only be making more delicious food, you’ll also find cooking simpler and more fun than ever before.
Master chef Mathias Dahlgren might have made a name for himself for his sophisticated yet simple dishes served in a fine dining environment, but he has his feet very firmly on the ground – or you could say he has his ladle very firmly in the saucepan – when it comes to everyday cooking. He knows what works for cooking at home, how to plan, prepare, combine, flavour and cook smart dishes with great ingredients and how to make heavenly soup out of next to nothing.
In Domestic Science for Grown Ups, Mathias Dahlgren helps you get a grip of your kitchen. The book has three main chapters – 20 minutes, 40 minutes and 120 minutes or more – 20 minutes stands for quick and creative, 40 minutes for meals followed by a simple dessert for those days when you have a bit more time and 120 minutes or more for basic recipes and slow cooking that make your time in the kitchen stress free.
The book also contains Mathias’ lists of unexpected and fantastic flavour combinations and professional tips that will have you making shortcuts in the kitchen in no time, and a look into the future by food writer Mats-Eric Nilsson.
Mathias Dahlgren is Sweden’s most awarded chef and in fact the only Swedish chef to have won a gold medal in Bocuse dÒr, the World Championships for Chefs. He currently runs the Michelin starred restaurants Mathias Dahlgren Matsalen and Matbaren at the Grand Hotel in Stockholm.
