Bold Fork Cookbook Club: RAMBUTAN

Bold Fork Cookbook Club: RAMBUTAN

    April 25, 2024 @ 07:00pm

    Join us for the April meeting of the BOLD FORK COOKBOOK CLUB!

    Here’s how it works: everyone will prepare a dish from RAMBUTAN (a week or so after you sign up, you’ll have access to a spreadsheet where attendees list their chosen dishes.)

    Then we’ll gather in the shop and share a feast! We’ll talk through the process of procuring ingredients, challenges and unexpected pleasures of the cooking process and many other things related to RAMBUTAN.

    If you purchase a copy of the book from us with your ticket, you can come pick it up in the store, or have it shipped for an additional cost.

    Please note: because of the high demand of this event, we will not be able to process refunds.

    ABOUT RAMBUTAN:
    There's a reason why RAMBUTAN was named a New York Times Top 10 Cookbook of the Year and Best Cookbook of the Year by Bon Appetit in 2022. Combining luscious recipe photography and stunning candids from the island, this exuberant guide is perfect for home cooks looking to explore the exciting Sri Lankan tradition in South Asian cuisine. Since author Cynthia Shanmugalingam was a young girl, she has worked to piece together her sense of Sri Lanka, her ancestral homeland that she experienced through the wondrous flavors of her immigrant parents’ kitchen in London. In RAMBUTAN these ingredients, methods, and tastes—combining Javanese, Malay, Indian, Arab, Portuguese, Dutch and British influences—come together to create an irresistible portrait of modern Sri Lankan cuisine.

    Combining luscious recipe photography and stunning candids from the island, this book is the perfect for home cooks looking to explore the exciting Sri Lankan tradition in South Asian cuisine. In 80+ recipes including mouthwatering dishes like sticky chicken buriana and crunchy fried potatoes with turmeric, Shanmugalingam takes her favorite parts of the island's culinary tradition and adapts them to be accessible and fun for the home cook.
