FOODIE NOTEBOOK: MARCH
It might be all doom and gloom with this Brexit malarkey, so cheer yourself up with some of my foodie finds! You can share your favourites in the comment box below.
What am I cooking?
This chicken shawarma recipe from the Tesco Real Food magazine. The magazine is usually the first port of call in my kitchen these days. There are so many cookbooks out there that it's sometimes overwhelming trying to pick new ones. Magazines are always on trend, and they almost, always, have a recipe for roast chicken.
I've always got a food memoir on the go but I often have a hard time tracking them down in the UK. Most of the time I order them from the US, however, Cardiff Library does sometimes stock a gem like MFK Fisher's Long Ago in France: The Years in Dijon.
With an ever increasing amount of coffee table cookbooks, the late Nora Ephron often mused that food was more of a fetish than activity. The existence of her self-published cookbook is legendary. But The Most of Nora Ephron covers some of her most well-loved food and drink essays. My favourite is the story of her local Pillsbury Bake-Off contest.
This video from The Perennial Plate beautifully captures the mundanity of doing something you love.
The picture above is of my favourite Parisian cafe Le Barbouquin. It's a petit coffee shop in Belleville neighbourhood, with a bookshop inside. It's usually filled with families and book lovers, yet it seems to be the only place my Paris-based friend and I have in-depth discussions about Grey's Anatomy. Karev, hero or idiot? Our verdict: idiot.
Our own Hang Fire Southern Kitchen talk about how they made it to the top. A really inspiring article with Companies House.
