The postie's been bringing me parcels again! I do love the postman.
Well obviously I was MEANT to have the book, it matches my blanket! How fabulous is that cover ? The grey squares are actually silver.
I hadn't come across Sarah Raven's cookery books before finding her Garden Cook Book in the library recently. I posted a pic a few posts back. Am I glad I know about them now? I most certainly am!
BEAUTIFUL, beautiful, beautiful. Gorgeous photography by Jonathan Buckley and never have I seen so many recipes I want to try RIGHT NOW!
The book is divided into four seasons each with a selection of recipes for
snacks & canapes
soups & accompaniments
cakes, biscuits & sweets
The Summer section has extra recipes for picnics and for barbecues, and the Winter section has extra recipes for Christmas food.
