Acclaimed chef Damien Pignolet shows us the endless possibilities of the salad.

Acclaimed chef Damien Pignolet shows us the endless possibilities of the salad. Here are entrée salads to stimulate the appetite, side salads to refresh the palate, and warm salads that serve as a meal in their own right. Learn how to perfect classic salads, such as niçoise, and how to marry a range of tastes and textures to create a chicken salad with asparagus, peaches and a pistachio nut vinaigrette, and a sweet salad of strawberry, orange and red wine.

Damien's first book, French, captured the essence of classic French cooking in Australia. With its rich photography and detailed notes on produce, composition and presentation, Salades is set to educate, inspire and delight the dedicated home cook.


Variations you would never consider but must try for every course ... lovely photos, composition and presentation as well as detailed notes on produce. Enjoy the difference and peek at his repertoire.

Dianne Mattsson, Adelaide Advertiser

Such is his nurturing tone that reading and cooking from his new book, Salades, is like having Pignolet himself in the kitchen with you, coaxing and encouraging step by step.

Australian Gourmet Traveller

'The aim of this book is to open our mind to the vast possibilities available within this genre.' (Damien Pignolet, SMH 4/1/2011 pg10)


Any book by Damien Pignolet is worth reading.
