From prolific James Beard Award–winning author Georgeanne Brennan, along with Barbara Bryant, the first cookbook devoted to the versatility of the pistachio nut, featuring 60 sweet and savory recipes

Pistachio: Savory & Sweet Recipes Inspired by World Cuisines celebrates the striking flavor of the jewel-like, delectable nut. With over sixty recipes, authors Barbara Bryant and Georgeanne Brennan draw inspiration from the culinary traditions of Turkey, Iran, Afghanistan, North Africa, Italy, Greece, Spain, France, and the Middle East, giving the dishes a contemporary spin. Serving up a feast of snacks, breakfasts, sides, mains, and desserts—such as Pistachio Flour Waffles with Pistachio Butter and Pomegranate Syrup, Cumin-Roasted Cocktail Pistachios, Grilled Zucchini Skewers with Pistachio Dukkah, Chicken Milanese with Pistachio-Parmesan Crust, Pistachio Butter-Basted Shrimp Tacos, Pistachio Ice Cream Sandwiches, Pistachio Nut Tart, and Baklava with Pistachios—this stunning collection of recipes highlights the taste and flexibility of the pistachio.

In addition to exploring their culinary history and nutritional value, the authors also provide tips on how to toast and store the nut, as well as how to make your own staples, such as pistachio flour, butter, milk, and paste. With Pistachio, you will discover the rich and complex world of flavor that takes this ancient delicacy from the snack bowl to center stage.
