Jonnie Boer, now widely known as the chef and owner of De Librije, a Michelin three-star restaurant in the historic centre of Zwolle, now follows the success of his first book, Puur, with yet more stories and recipes in: Purer. This new book is about the gastronomy offered at one of the finest restaurants in the Netherlands and is a feast in itself. Jonnie cooks with indigenous ingredients remaining loyal to the Zwolle region. His style and recipes are wild and imaginative, incorporating uncommon ingredients like eel, North Sea gurnard and river perch that he serves with smoked garlic froth and coriander pesto. In Purer, the food takes centre stage. Every dish is skilfully enriched through the lens of photographer Jan Bartelsman, offering fantastic, original, inspirational images of Jonnie's food. Boer's contemporary, regional culinary style has its origins in the master chef's childhood that he spent enjoying the outdoors - fishing, hunting, poaching - near the village of Giethoorn (near Zwolle) The uniqueness of Purer continues with the inclusion of an additional book on wine, which will be inserted into the exterior of the cover.
This tiny gem, written by Jonnie's wife, partner and master of wine, Therese Boer-Tausch, highlights some simple theories of wine pairing with food.
