There’s plenty to be excited about in the cookbook club update this month – free-range cooking from the Australian Women’s Weekly cookbooks, and a great new book for November!
So – September has been and gone and it’s time for our cookbook club update again. Lots of us (but a special mention must go to group member Carolyn) loved exploring and enjoying Chinese-ish by Rosheen Kaul and Joanna Hu, our September selection.
I also know that many of you are looking forward to November, and to cooking from any of the Australian Women’s Weekly cookbooks. These books have been mainstays on Australian kitchen cookbook shelves for decades. There have been 100’s of them published since the 1970s, covering every possible type of cuisine, dietary need and culinary preference that you could think of.
There are vast amounts of Australian Women’s Weekly recipes available online, they publish new cookbooks regularly, and every second hand bookshop in the country has at least one or two buried on their shelves somewhere. Over at Eat Your Books they have a list of 682 of them!
Seriously, this really couldn’t be more inclusive for our cookbook club – so I’m looking forward to seeing lots of great dishes.
The cookbook club update for November will be a big thrill for any fans of Nagi Maehashi and her blog Recipe Tin Eats. Nagi has been blogging here in Australia since 2014, winning over hearts and stomachs the world over, and is now one of the world’s largest independent recipe publishers. This year she will publish her first cookbook Recipetin Eats Dinner (Pan Macmillan $44.99 RRP), due to be released on October 11 2022.
Nagi is famous for dishes that always work, that people want to cook and eat, and that everyone will enjoy – and that’s what she delivers in Dinner, in spades. I’ve had a sneak preview of the book and I know you won’t be disappointed. It contains 150 recipes, including one-pot wonders, better than takeaway stir fries, crowd-pleasing mains and everyone’s favourite desserts, and a selection of staple sauces, dressings and breads.
This is going to be a popular one, so do get your orders in (and if you use the link I’ve provided you’ll get a great price).
