At the beginning of the month I was very lucky to win a competition by Murdoch Books and I was delighted when I received a beautiful selection of cookery books by famous TV chefs Bill Granger, Stephane Reynauld, Luke Nguyen and last but by no means least Matthew Evans, known from the TV series “The Gourmet Farmer”. With a title of “Winter on the Farm” this stood straightaway out to me at this time of the year and looking through this book I was not disappointed.
It is packed full with heart warming recipes for the cold winter months. And with mouth watering titles like “French toast stuffed with poached pears” for breakfast,
through to exotic sounding “vodka-cured blue eye potato fish cakes” & more familiar “stout, beef shin and mushroom pie” for dinner topped by lovely cakes & bakes like “macadamia and golden syrup butternut biscuits” & “ date, honey & ginger cake” to go with a nice cup of tea it has something for everyone.
All recipes have a clear ingredient list and very easy to follow instructions.
With the festive season coming up I decided to make some party food: “cheese puffs”
The book is full with stunning photography by Alan Benson and it is a great addition to the collection of any cook who loves bold & beautiful recipes that warm the cockles of the heart.
The book is available in good book stores and on-line.
I have not been paid or requested to do a review of this book and the views expressed are mine alone.
