By Nadia Roden
Granita Magic is a collection of innovative sweet and savory sensations that can be made with just a fork, a saucepan, and a little spare space in the freezer. And they can be served at any time of the day. Sauternes granita spooned over fresh peaches is a grand dessert, while cucumber and mint makes an unexpected appetizer. Between courses, red pepper or lemon can refresh the palate. Coffee granita spooned onto a warm brioche is a classic Italian breakfast, while strawberry and champagne is a lovely apertif before brunch.
Accompanying each sparkling recipe are lively and playful designs created by Nadia Roden—an award-winning painter and textile designer as well as an accomplished cook—and inspired by 1950s wallpaper and textile designs and by the ingredients themselves. This charming and original book is a delight to all the senses.
