Is it a cookery blog? Is it a book club? Yes! It’s both. Every month we will cook recipes from a different cookbook — sometimes one that has just been published, sometimes an old classic or an obscure personal favourite. We’ll be trying to work out which recipes work best, what the best menus are, and which dishes should become part of our regular repertoires. We’ll need your help. Which recipes are your favourites in this month’s book? Which ones didn’t work out? Which book should we all try next month? Do tell!
And now, a word about your three hosts. Kirstin is a part-time doctor and full-time mother of two who loves food, photography, and food photography, among other things. Anna works in advertising but really loves food and wine, and organising holidays involving both. She and Kirstin are best friends from way back — they went to school together, and now they live near each other in London. Over the years they have enjoyed many memorable meals together with friends and family — Kirstin met her husband over dinner at Anna’s, for instance — and they plan to enjoy many more.
Maureen first got to know Kirstin when she lived down the street and they bonded over cooking and children, in that order. This proved to be very convenient one legendary Christmas day when they visited each other numerous times to borrow the necessary ingredients and trade advice about cooking a goose. Alas, Maureen has never cooked a goose again. Live and learn.
Now, where’s that cookbook?
