For my last birthday, I received “Sweet”, the cookbook by Yotam Ottolenghi and Helen Goh. Here’s a short review: I. Love. It. Interesting recipes, often with a twist. Very well-explained recipes and a preface that is titled “Our Sugar Manifest”. What’s not to love? It was very hard to decide what to bake first. So…… Continue reading Custard Cookies

This, of course, makes the…… Continue reading Pecan & Bacon Brownie
So. Matt Preston. I love reading his articles and I love watching him on Australian Masterchef. So of course, when I saw a cook book by his hand, I had to have it. Honestly, it’s worth buying for his writing alone, he is very knowledgeable about food and it is a pleasure to read. That’s not…… Continue reading Millionaire’s Shortbread (with Salted Caramel)
