Food & Drink
I’m not the most gifted of cooks, but I do enjoy the occasional dabble, especially if the ingredients appeal. This lovely little book, written with humour and sprinkled with great little tips about how to make the best of the offered recipes, is a definite encouragement to try something new in the culinary department. You’ll find Classic, Posh, Chunkie, Sweet, and Show Stoppers here. A real mix of tastes for a variety of gravies to go with so many different meals. Easy to follow, and delicious, if the one I tried today is anything to go by. They range from the simple as two minutes to the more ambitious requiring time and patience.
Now, I need to search for an easy way to grow my own fresh herbs and, maybe, invest in a food blender. Neither is necessary for all the recipes, but both would definitely be of help with some of them. I know, what am I doing at my time of life without a blender? Call me underprivileged (or, just a lazy cook!).
This little book is as entertaining as its creations are delicious. Definitely worth a try.
