Last week one of the books I designed for Nimbus Publishing was launched at the old Halifax Historic Farmers Market. Seasoned is a wonderful blend of recipes and stories by the veteran radio host Costas Halavresos. I was so happy to meet Costas at the launch and I’m really looking forward to trying his spices once our kitchen renovations are complete.
I love designing books, but the process is made even sweeter when it is a book about food. Cassia buds, oaxaca, madagascar vanilla pods, allspice, and za’atar – reading these words makes me want to get into the kitchen and make a delicious mess. This book, with the addition of some of Costas’ whole spices, would make an delectable gift for the foodies on your list. And who knows, they might even be kind enough to bake you some cassia bud cookies and bring them over for your next potluck.
