I am so very lucky & grateful to have won the Burch & Purchese VIP competition. I am a huge fan of Darren & Cath’s recipes & virtual cooking classes, and I have all their signed cookbooks too. My VIP status is for 3 months so I will be posting about all the perks as they happen. I am so excited to be the very first B&P VIP. I also decided it was a great opportunity to do a cookbook challenge & cook as many things as I can from all of Darren Purchese’s cookbooks & cooking classes. YUM!!

Update: I have had my VIP status extended for an extra couple of weeks and that gave me the extra time I need to complete cooking the entire Chefs Eat Breakfast Too & the Chefs Eat Toasties Too cookbooks. WOW What an epic & delicious few months it has been & I have loved it all! (I have also included pictures from recipes I cooked before the my Cookbook Challenge with a * & any recipes I complete after the challenge with **)
