I liked the start of this but I struggled with the flow, it jumps around a lot and is really just a collection of jumbled memories centered on food and some awkward sexual moments.

Fantastic resource cookbook, all about starting points and where you can take a 'recipe' from there. Encourages thinking and being more involved with your cooking than just measuring/mixing/cooking. It is a cookbook but it is also wonderfully readable.

This was a library read but I'm pretty sure I'm going to order my own copy of this one.

This was such a delightful read. It’s more Christmas appreciation rather than cookbook I think ,but I adored it. A personal reflection on the Christmas season that I really identified with.
