Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Renowned food photographer Katie Quinn Davies’ cookbook shares her favorite simple dishes with a dazzling collection of recipes and beautiful images (American edition).

After spending more than a decade as an art director working for some of the top design studios in Ireland, the United States, and Australia, Katie Quinn Davies refocused her creativity towards food and lifestyle photography and created a blog called What Katie Ate. An Internet phenomenon, What Katie Ate has received international attention and was even dubbed one of the best food blogs in the world by GOOP. Showcasing her extraordinary eye, this debut cookbook is a unique combination of food diary and how-to, with tips and tricks, photographs, recipes, and stories.

Sharing more than one hundred simple culinary recipes drawn from Katie’s travels, dinner party cooking and foodie haunts, What Katie Ate emphasizes seasonal ingredients and irresistible flavors. Featured dishes range from Wild Mushrooms on Toast with Parmesan and Herbs to Roasted Pork Tenderloin with Apple, Prune & Pine Nut Stuffing and Cider Cream Gravy. What’s for dessert? Temptations include Coffee Hazelnut Frangelico Cake and Honey Baked Peaches with Vanilla Bean Créme Fraiche.

Perfect for entertaining, this gorgeous cookbook minimizes the time spent in the kitchen and maximizes the time spent enjoying the meal with friends and family. Bringing together easy-to-cook recipes (using standard American measurements) with gorgeous world-class food photography, What Katie Ate will indulge all of your senses.

Review:

"In a visual age, food stylists have redefined the way we eat, and cookbooks with vivid, original imagery such as this one stand out from the pack. Commercial food and lifestyle photographer Davies built her fan base with a blog that chronicles her meals and work, and her debut book gives readers a tangible record — part recipe collection, part scrapbook, laden with sumptuous color and extravagant, full-page layouts. Davies's approach is seasonal and earthy, with many dishes reflecting her Irish heritage (Katie's fish pie with crunchy bacon and leek topping) and now Aussie hometown (mini beef and bacon meat pies. Even so, there are flashes of global inspiration, such as a Vietnamese salad with crispy pork belly and spiced lamb pizza with mint yogurt dressing, and multiple dishes recreated from travel memories. Davies takes a bold approach in mixing flavor profiles and textures in dishes like roasted pepita and watercress salad with a fried duck egg, and rhubarb, mascarpone, and hazelnut tartlets, but in the end it's her aesthetic sensibility — nostalgic yet modern, composed yet organic — that makes this cookbook feel like a fresh revelation.
