From our friends at Phaidon:
A long-awaited second cookbook from celebrated architectural designer John Pawson and his wife Catherine
Home Farm is the Pawson family's base in the heart of the English countryside. Five years in the making, the beautiful house was built to unite friends and relatives in a bucolic, simple setting. In this personal, inspiring recipe collection John and Catherine share 100 favorite dishes, all fundamental to their home-cooking – and entertaining – repertoire. The result speaks beautifully of food shared and enjoyed in a space designed to accommodate and adapt to the seasonal shift in cooking and eating. Recipes included range from Easter lamb served in the open-plan barn kitchen to wild mushroom risotto shared in the intimate dining room and walnut praline ice cream enjoyed outside by the carp pond. Stunning photographs of the house and finished dishes bring the book – and Pawson's celebrated aesthetic – to life, making this the perfect gift for both home cooks and architecture lovers.
