This Christmas, with our newly expanded family staying,
I donned the Hercules pinny,
and plunged headlong into the recipe books.
Tassajara Bread Book.
A Year in my Kitchen - Skye Gyngell.
Sarah Raven's Garden and Friends and Family.
Delia's Winter Collection.
Hugh's Three Good Things.
John Pawson's Living and Eating.
Nigella's How to Eat and Express.
Nigel Slater's Kitchen Diaries I.
Nigel Slater's Kitchen Diaries II.
Thank you.It was.
I hope yours was too.
Ooh look at you with your signed Nigel. I have a signed copy of one of his early books -Real Cooking. I am impressed to see such extensive use of a cookbook collection Lucille and that couscous looks delicious.ReplyDelete
I am overly dependent on recipe books and wish I could break free.Delete
May I recommend JERUSALEM? As is often the way with Ottlenghi's books I find I want to cook from no other book for the foreseeable...ReplyDelete
On the other hand I am always grateful for any of your suggestions B.Delete
Looking at all that deliciousness , I feel I must get myself a Hercules pinny ....ReplyDelete
Do. You will find you are invincible in it.Delete
Clearly, I also need one. Invincibility is a very appealing state.Delete
How fortunate are the folks who delight in sampling your cooking and baking. They must know the joy of anticipation when they see you don that pinny!ReplyDelete
Best wishes to you for a glorious Christmastime and a very Happy 2013. xo
Thank you Frances. I wish you a very happy new year too.Delete
The Hercules pinny and the endeavours of its wearer are magnificent, of course, and may I ask you about the central light in the room where the piano is? I love its laciness and am wondering what it is.ReplyDelete
It is a shade by Tord Boontje called Midsummer. It wraps around a cone that they supply. It comes in some beautiful colours.Delete
Now that is a lot of cookery books! And a new one too I see, well done ;)ReplyDelete
It is ridiculously late to be wishing you a Merry Christmas, so have a Happy New Year instead :D
You are a domestic goddess. I'm impressed. Happy New Year when it comes.ReplyDelete
I am mega, mega impressed with your collection of books...... and your pinny!ReplyDelete
