As you know I love a bit of a cookbook challenge and my cousin also has a love of cookbooks like I do. So when I visited her in Melbourne in February, we had fun just flicking through the pages of her cookbook collection and I fell in love with The Cook’s Table by Stephanie Alexander. I already have a few of her cookbooks but I love that this one has 25 fun themed menus and photos for every recipe. And the recipes look great too of course!! So my cousin & I decided to do a Julie & Julia style challenge in March to cook as many recipes as we can in this month. I feel like I’m cheating because I have a Thermomix LOL!! I promptly purchased a copy for my self and put rose petals in vodka to make the Rose Petal Liqueur _ It had to steep for a month. I will be going away towards the end of the month but I will take my cookbook with me!! Feel free to join in our challenge it’s going to be delicious fun!!
