Maureen: We picked this book after we saw her cook and talk in person.
Kirstin: But we haven’t been paid to review it. This is not a sponsored post!
Maureen: She was delightful.
Kirstin: She was inspiring and so lovely.
Maureen: She reminded me of an early Nigella.
Kirstin: She did. She made me want to go home and cook straightaway.
Maureen: I did that. I spent that weekend making about four things from this cookbook.
Kirstin: This cookbook reminds me of Moro, but easier.
Maureen: I liked her attitude where she said that she bungs and throws things in and doesn’t get too caught up in a recipe. If she doesn’t have a particular ingredient, or can’t find it, she doesn’t worry about it.
Kirstin: I’m going to have a cupboard full of Middle Eastern ingredients.
Maureen: Some of which we already have, thanks to Ottolenghi. I’m looking forward to a month of feta. That’s definitely going to be good.
