Notes about this book

  • knittingfrog on June 26, 2017

    Tried so far the jumbleberry tart, the sausage rolls and cheese rolls... All have resulted in people asking for the recipe! Hope this book get indexed soon!!!!

  • knittingfrog on May 26, 2016

    Jumbleberry pie. Delicious!! Had no orange so used apple juice instead and it worked a treat! Definitely making that again! Party food not cook under very well so may part bake next time before adding filling.

    CHICKEN AND CHORIZO WITH SPICED PAPRIKA CRUMBLE - p. 29 – First use of this recipe and this book and I’m happy to report we’re off to a pretty good start. This pie was delicious and all the flavours blended together nicely. We were surprised that the lemon flavour was discernable in the finished dish and it provided a nice contrast to the other bold and earthy flavours. My only nit with the recipe was that it didn’t produce enough sauce so I’d increase the chicken stock next time. Otherwise this was lovely and I’d be happy to make it again.

Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Lemony asparagus and ricotta tart

    • Agaillard on May 17, 2019

      Very pretty and tasty enough, but not very easy to cut and eat. Also not especially extraordinary! If I make again, I will make into small tartlets, and try to find a way for the filling to "hold" more,

  • Smoked bacon tartiflettes

    • JJ2018 on May 29, 2019

      Made this for dinner with in-laws served with salad. Made one big one instead of little ones and slightly par cooked the crust in advance. This was very tasty

  • Crispy Asian salmon

    • JJ2018 on April 28, 2019

      This is a new family favourite. Left out the chilli to suit younger tastebuds but came together relatively quickly and surprised how much daughter and husband loved this. Served with sugar snap peas. Definite make again!

  • Salted pecan fudge pie

  • Garlicky green beans

    • angrygreycat on July 30, 2019

      Simple tasty side dish with fresh in-season green beans - I added extra garlic as we all love garlic

  • Quick soured cream pastry

    • angrygreycat on August 10, 2019

      This is a great, super easy to work with pastry. Rolls out very easily and smoothly. I used it as a crust for quiche.
