Maureen: Gordon was good!
Kirstin: Gordon was excellent.
Maureen: What did you like about it?
Kirstin: The recipes were sound.
Maureen: I agree. Every recipe I did worked, which is unusual.
Kirstin: The flavours were really good.
Maureen: This was your first electronic cookbook, wasn’t it?
Kirstin: I have a lot of cookbooks (casting her eye around the thousands of books in her library/music room.) So it’s good to have some of them virtually. P.us you know what was really good`? I~ could take it to the shops with the recipes.
Maureen: Rather than ahving to write out waht you needed…
Kirstin: Or you could decide in the shops what you wanted to eat.
Maureen: The tips were really useful. I was initially very sceptical about them, but they were good.
Kirstin: Yes! Scraping the ginger with a teaspoon to get the skin off, not using a vegetable peeler.
Maureen: I didn’t know that. Very helpful!
