Rohan Marley kicks off each chapter of The Marley Coffee Cookbook, offering anecdotes about growing up as the son of legendary musician Bob Marley, who to this day is revered by music lovers young and old. Many chapter names reference Bob Marley's music, and a chapter of vegetarian recipes starts like this: "One Love is one of my father's biggest songs, and I wanted the coffee that I named One Love not just to be a standout single origin coffee, but to really resonate with people."
Chef Maxcel Hardy's flawless recipes and expert guidance on the best way to infuse a dish with coffee flavor make this book a very special addition to any cookbook collection. From the vantage point of a chef, Hardy speaks to the importance of choosing a particular coffee to harmonize with certain foods, and he shows how easy it is to use coffee in a way that it brings out the best in everything from savory dishes to sweet treats.
There's a strong coffee connection for each dish, whether it is infused with a mocha theme or it rocks an espresso flavor. These are dishes you're unlikely to find in many other places: sweet potato waffles with a pecan coffee syrup, grilled salmon with a coffee, maple, and ginger glaze, fried plantains with coffee sugar, coffee spice blend-marinated lamb ribs with guava BBQ sauce are just some examples of Hardy's imaginative recipes.
