… firstly may I wish you, from Belleau Kitchen, a very Happy and Healthy New Year… I hope all your dreams come true in Two Thousand and Twelve… Olympic year for lucky Londoners, Golden Jubilee Year for the rest of us British lot and something for everyone to celebrate… the 100th anniversary of the Titanic disaster… what a year it will be…
… so let us kick it off in wonderful style with a nice and easy Random Recipe challenge… New Year… New Book is all about cooking something random from your newest cookbook… I realise we’ve done something similar before but the concept is a moveable feast for everyone and seeing that I could, with impunity, guess that we all received at least one new cookbook for Christmas, it shouldn’t be too hard to want to join in…
… my new book is Wild Garlic, Gooseberries and Me by Dennis Cotter… a book written in 2007 but unknown to me until now but it’s a fascinating vegetarian cook book about eating off the land… full of lovely tales and delicious recipes… i’ve not really had time to study it properly but I am very excited about giving it a good read… and my random recipe…Tagliolini with shredded Brussels Sprouts, Sage and Pine Nuts… oh yes, just as thought it was safe to steer clear of the dreaded Brussel it rears its ugly head once more… bloody random recipes… who’s stupid idea was this…?
rules are pretty simple…
1. select your newest book
2. shut your eyes and randomly open the book
3. cook the recipe found on the opened page
4. write it up in a blog post, including a link back to my blog and the random recipes logo
5. email me a link to your entry to email@example.com
6. do NOT cheat… you’re only cheating yourself
7. you have until the 30th Jan to enter the challenge
eat and of course, enjoy!
