Happy New Year my lovely readers! I hope that your had a wonderful break and got lots of rest, reading, cooking and relaxing done. Allow me to contribute to your cookbook collection. For the first giveaway this year I thought I'd make it a cookbook! I already ended up making two dishes from Poh's Kitchen in quick succession as they were the right mix of wow and quirky. I made the egg and parmesan chive soldiers which Mr NQN has now repeatedly requested and the attention grabbing "Fettuccine" Crepes Suzette.
There's a whole bunch of delicious recipes in here (more than 80 at last count) and many with full page colour pictures (you know I like my food porn ;) ) and canvasses food from different cultures in a range of styles. There's of course Asian food but then there's also beetroot borscht with pirozhki, steamed Moroccan snapper, paella and chicken curry with roti chanai which really reflects the way that we eat food from different cultures nowadays. There's even a boast of the best banana cake in the world-now that's a challenge!
