Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Turkish bride soup

    • sgump on January 30, 2016

      Lovely on a cold winter night. I thought I had red lentils on hand but apparently didn't, so I ended up using Lebanese brown lentils, perhaps lending the soup even more body. I also added two finely diced carrots and used ground ancho chile powder instead of the smoked paprika. Quite nice, indeed--and, really, a cinch to throw together! The mint and lemon juice really do make for a tasty lentil soup.

      a nice wholesome soup. Quite thick too- I had to thin it down a little with extra water-whole family loved this!

    • MaryCunningham86 on April 25, 2014

      This is a delicious, substantial soup.

  • Turkish bread

    • Hellyloves2cook on October 22, 2012

      Easy recipe. Enjoyable to make and very impressed with how the loaves turned out. Great to have with the Turkish Bride Soup.

  • Sausage, tomato and olive pissaladiére

    • Hellyloves2cook on December 06, 2012

      Cant believe how easy the olive pastry was- basically flour and water and olive oil- it gave a nice crisp base and sides. Easy and fun to make and equally easy to eat. I did leave out the sausages as I didn't have them around. It got a big thumbs up from everyone in the family. Great for picnics too.

  • Vegetable and tofu stir-fry

    • MaryCunningham86 on April 25, 2014

      A favourite tofu dish - I just use any vegetables that I have on hand, and often add frozen podded edamame beans.

  • Chicken and leek gratin

    • MaryCunningham86 on April 25, 2014

      Delicious winter food. Have also added mushrooms with the leeks for something a bit different. The Provencal crust keeps well in the freezer, so I usually have some ready to go.

  • Birdseed bar

    • MaryCunningham86 on April 25, 2014

      Delicious and keeps well so great to have on stand by to take to work for morning tea. I like to substitute some of the sultanas for dried cranberries, and add almonds.

“I love everything about this new book from NZ's biggest selling cookery writer by a country mile (The Best of Annabel Langbein – aka to me and many others as 'The Bible' – has also sold more than 150,000 copies in NZ alone). The design, the photography, the recipes, the friendly text… no doubt it is another winner, especially with the TV series of the same name about to kick off.” – Graham Beattie, Beattie’s Book Blog
