Eurospan Cooks: Pie

10 Jul 2019 13:00:59

Eurospan Cooks

This charming recipe book from The University of North Carolina Press provides fifty-seven delicious, seasonal pie recipes that draw on author Sara Foster’s extensive skills as a professional chef.

More than this, though, it gives an insight into the warmth and heart of a southern kitchen, and presents the process of pie-making as an almost instinctual, family-orientated tradition – one that results in a seemingly unavoidable ‘passion for pies’.

From the traditional – Chocolate Meringue, Old-Fashioned Pecan, Straight-Up Rhubarb – to the adventurous – Peanut and Pepsi, Carolina Crab, Chorizo Apple – Sara has a recipe for every occasion and every taste. A significant slice is dedicated to savoury pies, which draws on Sara’s experience as a chef and highlights the importance of seasonality, texture, and seasoning to taste rather than following the recipe precisely. In fact, when it comes to savoury pies, she encourages her reader to use the recipe only as a guideline and to make the ingredients and flavours their own.

For a decidedly amateur baker, this freedom appealed more than the precision I thought I might need to whip up some Swiss meringue or frangipane, so I decided to have a go instead at the Caramelised Onion and Whipped Feta Pie. Sara's instructions were clear and reassuring, and while I’m still not quite ready to be throwing pies together at the drop of a hat, it certainly seems more attainable than when this book first landed on my desk.

Pie

Sara’s ultimate advice is:
‘Make lots of pies. That’s how you learn.’
When the results are this delicious, I’m more than happy to keep practising…

Christopher J. Shepherd
Apr 2019 352pp

Resilience and the Localisation of Trauma in Aceh, Indonesia
Catherine Smith
2017 232pp, 2 maps
Examines the global reach of the contested, yet compelling, concept of trauma. Catherine Smith explores how what is considered ‘trauma’ has expanded well beyond the bounds of therapeutic practice to become a powerful cultural idiom shaping the ways people understand the effects of violence and imagine possible responses to suffering.

Soul Catcher
Java's Fiery Prince Mangkunagara I, 1726-1795
M.C. Ricklefs
2018 432pp
Employs an extraordinary range of sources in Dutch and Javanese to bring the life of a key figure in Javanese history to life, illuminating our understanding of Java's devastating civil war of the mid-18th century.

Unmarked Graves
Death and Survival in the Anti-Communist Violence in East Java, Indonesia
Vanessa Hearman
2018 288pp
The wave of anti-communist violence that swept across Indonesia in 1965-66 produced a particularly high death toll in East Java. It also transformed the lives of hundreds of thousands of survivors, who faced decades of persecution, imprisonment and violence. In this book, Vannessa Hearman examines the human cost and the community impact of the violence on people from different sides of the political divide.
