Maureen: This is an example of a perfect book at the perfect time.
Kirstin: March feels like the month furthest away from spring. You think spring is going to come, and then it doesn’t, and it happens every single year.
Maureen: When it’s cold and snowing, what you really need is some stodge, and that’s exactly what this book has. I don’t think we would have enjoyed this book as much if we had done it in say, July.
Kirstin: No. Absolutely not. Which is why I chose to do it now.
Maureen: He did some pretty inventive stuff with cheese, which obviously I can get behind. The cheese aligot was out of this world.
Kirstin: The things I cooked came out really well. He should make an instant pot cookbook.
Maureen: I’m so over the instant pot thing. But I was really impressed with his recipes. He’s definitely moved beyond his Great British Bake Off days.
K: We’ve said this before but he could be the new Nigel Slater.
Maureen: That remains to be seen. But he’s certainly very talented. What a yummy month.

Any disasters? Nope.
Bookshelf or Charity Shop Donation? Kirstin: Bookshelf, but only from November to April. It’s like having your summer clothes. Maureen: I absolutely agree with that. A winter clothes cookbook. Would You Give This Book to a Friend?: Yes. There were little twists that were very well thought out. It’s an excellent winter book.
