Notes about this book

  • Melyinoz on November 29, 2020

    I made Amanda's slice GF by converting flour to 4g baking powder, 46g tapioca flour and 100g brown rice flour. They weren’t close to ready at the first time it is suggested to check, but the extra five minutes saw them become burnished. Hopefully this isn’t a bad thing and just adds extra depth of flavour.

    I totally agree with Sparkles75 on the Amanda slice. I initially didn’t engage much with this book but it has certainly rewarded me for going back and having a serious look at it. The wilted spinach recipe p114 is also a winner.

    Pg 232 Amanda's Slice. In my opinion worth the price of the book. Simple, delicious and a winner with everyone who has tried it

      Everything I’ve made from this book has been delicious and this is no exception. The turmeric dressing and hummus make a great combination. I marinated my own feta 2 days in advance. We have it with leftover roast chicken which we just leave off for the vegetarians. The pumpkin/squash is beautifully chewy

  • Mushroom tart

      Mushroom tart -super easy and super delicious: it’s a mushie tarte tatin without the caramel

      Puttanesca-baked white fish.I expected that this would taste great and it did I’ll certainly make it again, it’s also very easy
