After having successfully presented her RoughCutBoards at the MAK Design Shop, Alexandra Palla is now introducing her first cookbook.
What is it that makes good food good? Using the best possible ingredients? Perfect preparation? The best instructions or the
definitive recipe? Or are those things perhaps all in vain if the cooking is not done with the right measure of love? In her
first cookbook, PUT A LOT OF LOVE IN IT. Mit Liebe einfach besser kochen, the successful food blogger Alexandra Palla presents colorfully illustrated cooking stories that are all amply seasoned
with love. All the recipes tell a very personal story and are written with a lightness of touch that makes them all the
easier to put into practice. Born in Vienna in 1968, Alexandra Palla was culinarized in two contrasting grandparental kitchens. On the one
hand, as a member of the Thum family of ham-curers, she became used to hearty Viennese cooking that used every edible bit
of the animal from nose to tail; on the other hand, she also came to love the culinary refinement of her other
grandmother, a doctor, who celebrated the annual summer holiday in elegant fashion in Austrias Salzkammergut region.
Such were the genes that formed the warp and weft from which Alexandra Palla has developed her rough cut
style: an easy-going and straightforward way of cooking that calls for a joyful approach and, most especially, generous quantities
of love. Alexandra Pallas debut cookbook PUT A LOT OF LOVE IN IT. Mit Liebe einfach besser kochen is a user-friendly collection of best-loved recipes from her blog. Its wealth of cooking stories shed amusing light on the
life she shares between family, friends, work, and kitchen table.
