Cookbook of the Month, September 2019: Repertoire by Jessica Battilana

Maureen: How did you hear about this book then?

Kirstin: Well, as you know. We’ve both been struggling to find good new books at this time of the year.

Maureen: Indeed we have. But soon it will be pre-Christmas when all the goodies appear in the shops.

Kirstin: I cannot wait! But in the meantime I was browsing the Bon Appétit podcast and found this episode. I listened to it and thought the premise was really sound. 75 recipes that were tried and tested, with children in mind, but not necessarily. Also, the podcast is hilarious as they have a couple of the children of Bon Appetit writers talking about their parents and food.

Maureen: It looks like a good one for our teens.

Kirstin: I have to admit there is a little bit of that too. But really it feels like a cookbook I would like to have written.

Maureen: Plus, she’s from San Francisco, one of our favourite cities. Let’s give it a go then!

    I know exactly what you mean when you mention how hard it is to find a book to cook from this month. Thankfully, Diana Henry has just released her new book and I am sat with in front of me as I write this. I’m going to be cooking from this for a long time because there are only 3 or 4 dishes that dont’ appeal to me

  2. Can you try Jessica’s Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe? My kids think they are delicious but I’m not sure about the amount of flour that is listed. The dough seems dry and the only way to have chewy cookies is to completely under bake them. Curious to know if others feel the same? I want to cut the amount of flour by 40%!
