Guest Post: Food and Kitchen Witches

When my friend Val Griswold-Ford asked me if she could talk about food and her new book on my blog, I didn’t hesitate! So here goes 🙂 ————————- Thank you, Katharina, for letting me come over and talk about two… Continue Reading →

Cookbook Challenge 10 – Vive La France

Vive la France! The next cookbook is an ode to French cuisine and ingredients. As I mentioned in the first post, one of my favourite cookbooks is a French one, so many of the classics are well known to me…. Continue Reading →

Cookbook Challenge 9 – Macarons

In Paris, I got a lot of very specialised cookbooks. I got the Crème BrĂ»lĂ©e one, which I already had as a challenge and also one for Macarons. I have eaten macarons in France a few times but never cooked… Continue Reading →

Cookbook Challenge 4 – Austro Tapas

Next up is the Austro Tapas cookbook: basically classical Austrian dishes in small and handy versions. The added challenge, which Mick gave me, was to make it with breadcrumbs. Since they are very prominent in Austrian cuisine, I thought this… Continue Reading →

Cookbook Challenge 3 – Paul Bocuse Standard Cookbook

The second cookbook in my challenge is the “Paul Bocuse Standard Cookbook”. Paul Bocuse is one of the big names in French cuisine, and this cookbook has it all. Everything but pictures, which is a good thing for me in… Continue Reading →

Cookbook Challenge 2 – Haggis, Whisky & Co

As promised, there will be a second recipe inspired by (because I barely ever follow a recipe precisely) from my Scottish cookbook. For this challenge, Mick added the comment “leave out one single ingredient”. Since this recipe included 1 teaspoon… Continue Reading →
