We’re back with the sixth annual Apartamento cookbook, this time dedicated, somehow, to salads. Somehow salads? Surely a somewhat spurious subtitle. Well, let us set the record straight: after coming to the end of this chapter in the culinary journey we embarked upon six years ago, we started to wonder whether the term ‘salads’ was broad enough to define such a collection of recipes. Pig’s ear cocktail from our friends at Tarragona’s Bar Cortijo? Late-night guinea fowl, the original staff meal from Bao, London? Grilled and glazed greens from Septime, Paris, the type to earn them a Michelin star? Or the everyday life classic from one of South Korea’s top chefs, his clams in cho-gochujang sauce? We’ll leave it up to you to decide… Then there’s seaweed from a California commune, burnt-pecan dressing, romesco sauce, winemakers and writers, and a salad baked in cheese from the cook who opened a restaurant with Gordon Matta-Clark in the ‘70s. All up, the sixth annual Apartamento cookbook is a broad family, a seminal series of somehow salads to keep you coming back for more.
