Good Reads – Velochef in Europe by Henrik Orre

Book Review Henrik Orre Velochef in Europe
My copy of Henrik Orre's original 'Vélochef' (see my book review here) is well thumbed, and well read. I have tried dozens of the recipes from the collection; all of them have been superb, as well as easy to follow. 'Vélochef in Europe' is Henrik's sequel release, and looks into four European regions, with 80 local recipes.

Mallorca, Nice, Girona and Lombardy: four regions that are famed for their great riding, but also for their fantastic cuisine. Henrik combines both passions in this 'Vélochef in Europe'; inspiring you to experiment, and to get out and ride.

The book is set out in the four different areas, and the exploration of both the riding and cuisine that can be found in each.

Mallorca is the region that I am most familiar with, as I have visited the island on several occasions, including for the Mallorca312 and Mallorca1127. I have always loved the Mediterranean cuisine that I have been served on the island, as well as the bike riding to be had there. Being provided with the recipes to experiment with at home, and with inspirational cycling imagery from Henrik's rides, is almost as good as being back there for real.

Providing the history of the regions, 17 great rides, and 80 simple to follow recipes, 'Velochef in Europe' is both a travel and cookery book. It is a great read for any cyclist and foodie.
