As you can see from the numerous post it notes it's not just a book to read but one to cook from too. I love the way the recipes are written more as if they are a guide rather than something to be slavishly followed. Glugs of this and handuls of that are just my sort of cooking!
As I've had a good crop of beetroot over the past few weeks I picked out a likely looking beetroot recipe... I immediately replaced the cream with creme fraiche but more or less stuck to the rules.
I have to say it looks a little alarming but once you've got over the fact you are eating luminous pink food it is quite superb. So good in fact I've made it several times and it is already established as a firm favourite.
Today's vegetable pickings were these carrots
So out with the A & C cookbook again and this time I found a recipe for cake.
Haven't tasted it yet but it smells divine and was amazingly easy to make.
That only used a fraction of the carrots though and so I found another recipe for a carrot salad.
Quick, easy and tastes good too!
The perfect accompaniment for tonights courgette and goat's cheese quiche. It's the third night running I've served up something with courgettes... not sure how much longer I'm going to get away with it.
