We are very pleased to be launching the second volume of the Parabere publications :

ENCORE – Inspiring ways with leftovers, from 100 thoughtful cooks

A peek into the home kitchens of 100 inspiring women, including Hélène Darroze, Apollonia Poilâne, Dominique Crenn, Viviana Varese, Heidi Bjerkan, Trine Hahnemann, Jess Murphy, Maggie Beer, Darina Allen and Ruth Reichl, and more.

This second Parabere Forum publication highlights the respect and ingenuity of women over centuries of working with leftovers – through recipes that create miracles with very little. These are dishes that are rich not only in flavour – but environmentally and economically, too.

Honest and nourishing, these special and very personal recipes will inspire you to imagine and to share, always making the most of what’s available.

This is A PREORDER (to ensure limited numbers only). Books will be ready in early 2023.

For each copy sold, 5 euros will go to the Parabere Grant, helping to fund our aim to make the Forum accessible to those who, for financial reasons, are unable to attend.

Please, consider pre-ordering your copy Here


To celebrate the fifth anniversary of Parabere Forum (2019), which followed the launch in 2018 of the « Parabere Gourmet City App » and the « Parabere Care Award », we are celebrating women in hospitality with this collection of 100 essays.

Cooking Up a Better Food Future is a manifesto of hope for the future of food. Our network of female chefs, cooks, producers, writers, filmmakers, activists, creative disruptors and innovators have responded to the question: ‘How can women change the future of food?’, sharing their individual experiences, revelations and insights with great humour, urgency and passion.

You will find common themes weaving through these compelling and heart-warming texts: the importance of education, empowering children, protecting heritage, nourishing on both micro and macro scales, the instinctive role of the mother, the place of women at the centre of the home and community, women’s ability to collaborate and protect, the power of memory and cooking as an act of feeding are clearly women’s timeless contributions to food.
