It’s been a summer of discovering new flavours and foods and techniques. I joined a group called “The Great British Chef’s Cookbook Club” on Facebook. Every month we cook recipes from a new book, from chefs who are featured on the Great British Chef’s website. There’s been classic food, French food, Vietnamese food, vegetarian and vegan food. Last month we cooked from a book written by New Zealand chef. Many new ingredients that required searching high and low in Sussex to find what I needed to complete the recipe. It’s been great fun. It’s also improved my ‘plating-up’ talents which were next to nil before I joined this group.
Here are a few things I’ve made over the past month.
