… let’s begin with wishing you all the most tremendous new year… may it be a happy and healthy one for you and for all those you love… and so we’ve been down this road before but not for a year or two so i’ve decided to revisit an old favourite as there’s nothing we love more than cooking from our new cookbooks and i’m almost certain that being food lovers we all received cookbooks from those we loved this year… oddly enough I only received one cookbook this christmas… I think people are scared to know what I have and what I don’t but the one I did receive is beautiful… Daylesford – A Love For Food packed with recipes from the fresh food delivery company who are dedicated to growing, producing and cooking ‘real’ food… i’ve been oohing and aahing over it since christmas day but not had a chance to cook from it yet, so thankfully this gives me the excuse I need…
… and as I reach down to pick the book up to randomly pick a page the book opens itself naturally on page 184 and a rather glorious looking Cheddar, Potato and Onion Pie… I am very excited…
No new books for me this year – was a little upset about this. But I did get a vintage 1986 magazine chocolate supplement in my stocking which was cool, so will use that.
Janice Pattie says
What a joy! I have two new books looking forward to this.
Ruth Ellis says
Oh man – I could be off on a pickled herring adventure. One cookbook for me – a vintage paperback from the 1970s of “Cooking the Scandinavian Way”. Every recipe seems to need a cup of mayonnaise, and quite a few of them have ingredients but no quantities – could be very random indeed!
Sally Sellwood says
Fab. I got Rick Stein's 'India'. Curry feast for us then!
Jane Willis says
Ooooh I got three new books, anybody got a three-sided coin I can toss?
Charlene F says

Anne Szadorska says

Susan Lindquist says

Marcel Springorum says

Looking forward to it. 🙂
My family knows me too well. I got two cookbooks this year!
Karen S Booth says
NO new books for me too, but I will choose a new “review” book that was sent towards the end of last year!

The KitchenMaid says
Happy New Year darl! This has made me realise that I didn't get any new cookbooks for Christmas. Waah! I might have to go out and buy one to make up for it…
Phil in the Kitchen says
It seems like ages since I got a new cookbook. Maybe I should go on a tour of the local charity shops to find something new. Happy new year.
Just emailed to sign up, fingers crossed for a good recipe! 🙂
Jane Willis says
I think I may have broken rule 4. Several times. In fact I think I've smashed the entire rule to pieces!
Christian Halfmann says
Bring it on then, I just got a new boo this week. I will use that one then, it fits perfectly to the cooking theme on my blog this month, too.
Hmm I got a novel not a cookery book so might have to get inventive!
Stacy Rushton says
Oooh, good one, Dom! I got several new cookbooks for Christmas and haven't cooked yet from any of them. Happy New Year to you!
No new books for me either, but I have taken a new book out of the library and won one – so I am going to choose between them and then randomly pick a recipe. esp, as i Still have time to participate.
