Announcing the new cookbook for September in the cookbook club – and some exciting news! I have three copies of October’s selected cookbook to GIVE AWAY, thanks to publishers Murdoch Books. Read on …
Well my little cookbook fiends, we’re past the six-month mark for this very new and quickly growing group (464 members at todays count – and I love very single one of you) and it’s time for September in the cookbook club.
September’s selection should pose no problem for any of you to get hold of. Nigella Lawson’s “How to Eat – The Pleasure and Principles of Good Food” was first published in 1998, so will be available in local libraries everywhere. A quick Google will also definitely bring up scores of her recipes from it, or you can purchase it from the link above, at a very attractive price.
Now known as a modern classic, “How to Eat” is warm, generous and offers a range of dishes from new takes on really simple snacks (creaming the butter and Vegemite, although she uses Marmite, together for sandwiches is utterly inspired) to dinner party menus and special Christmas feasts.
The book lacks the glossy full-colour images we’re so used to these days, but makes up for that with her chatty, engaging prose and tempting, accessible recipes – you’ll totally feel like she’s in the kitchen with you. I can’t wait to share this wonderful classic for September in the cookbook club and can’t wait to see what you choose to make from it.
As I mentioned on the Facebook group my own contributions to August’s selection, “Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat” by Samin Nosrat were totally kyboshed by sudden and unexpected abdominal surgery, and the protracted recovery process. However, we still have a week of August left and I’m keen to see what comes out of your kitchens from this fabulous cookbook.
There’s exciting news for October’s selection, which is the very new “Every. Night. Of. The. Week.” by Lucy Tweed – a title that I’m sure most of us can relate to, especially those of you still in lockdown. This gorgeous book is full of fresh, interesting, tasty and SIMPLE dishes that will please both cook and family. It’s been killing me having this in the kitchen while I’m on such a restricted food regime, because I desperately want to cook pretty well every dish in it.
Lucy is big on simply getting food in mouths, and her recipes give home cooks the inspiration and freedom to deviate from her recipes, throw ingredients and flavours together and to make the dish your own.
Murdoch Books, the publishers of our October selection, have generously offered to give away three (3) copies of “Every. Night. Of. The. Week.” to members of our cookbook club. In order to qualify, all you need to do is to post an image of what you are cooking from the current club selections over on our Facebook group, with the hashtag #giveaway.
All images posted between today and Sunday 5 September will be eligible, and the three winners will be picked at random. This gives you all two weeks to get cooking, and still leaves plenty of time for the winners to get their books in the post, and the rest of you to go shopping! (Sorry, but this competition is only open to Australian resident.)
Don’t forget we have a year long selection, Alice Zaslavsky’s “In Praise of Veg” for you to cook from, and you can share your pictures from any of the previous cookbook selections on ‘Throw-back Thursdays’.
And PLEASE don’t forget to share your pictures on both the Facebook group and on your own Instagram profile, using the hashtag #lambsearscookbookclub for the latter.
YOU CAN BUY ANY OF THESE COOKBOOKS AT ALL GOOD BOOKSHOPS, OR ONLINE AT BOOKTOPIA USING THE LINKS IN THIS POST. (IF PURCHASED VIA THESE LINKS, YOU WILL GET A GREAT PRICE AND I WILL RECEIVE A SMALL PERCENTAGE OF THE COST.)
