CASA COOKING BOOK
The only thing bolder than Gabriela Palatchi’s spirit is her appetite. A self-taught chef, Gabriela opened her first restaurant, Gabfoods, in Istanbul in 2017. Gabfoods is the first 100% gluten-free and refined sugar-free restaurant in Turkey, committed to serving dishes made with only real, non-processed, organic, and ethical local ingredients. Gabriela’s mission is to create healthy, delicious, and beautiful food. This marriage of style and health made Gabfoods an instant Istanbul hotspot for locals and visitors alike.
Inspired by her grandmother, Gabriela has collected her favorite traditional family recipes and Gabfoods’ signature dishes in her debut cookbook. With her inimitable charm and humor, Gabriela reveals the secret ingredients in her pantry, her kitchen must-haves, and her tried and true cooking tips. Casa has something for everyone, from Pulpo a la Gallega to Vegan Banoffee Pie, and each recipe is easily customizable to suit vegan, gluten-free, sugar-free, and paleo palates. Featuring 75 recipes for every meal and occasion, the cookbook showcases a variety of cuisines from Spain, Turkey, Japan, and India. The recipes run the gamut from the simple to the sophisticated, but all are sure to please.
Gabriela lives in Istanbul and Madrid with her husband Ediz and two dogs, Karla and Nemo.
