Alexina Anatole: Bitter
This week, Gilly is talking to Alexina Anatole about the least pleasant of our five tastes: bitter. Or is it?
Alexina's series of cookbooks on the five tastes: Bitter, Sweet, Salty, Sour and Umamia is a step-by-step exploration of flavour, and an impressive start to a what looks like a masisve career for this bright young spark who swapped the trading floor for Masterchef in 2020.
In the first book, Bitter, she sets out to tame bitterness, showing us how to soothe it with dairy, balance it with sweetness and distract it with acidity. But Gilly quickly became much more interested in this super-driven polymath of a woman who has everything food TV needs right now.
Pop over to Gilly's Substack to hear more of Alexina's hidden talents.
