Two favourite cookbooks
03 March 2016
For a few weeks (okay, months) after we moved to Canberra, making dinner at home somehow went out the window. There were so many new places to try and we were still adjusting to city things like commuting and longer days at work.
But now we're back on track. On Monday night, we had roast quail for dinner and it felt pretty special. It was good for our bank balance too :)
We have tons of cookbooks at home but lately we've been cooking from one each. For me, it's been Rachel Khoo's Kitchen Notebook, which I've had since last year but really gotten into after watching the series on SBS.
I've made an excellent spaghetti dish (we're having it again tonight), a fancy breakfast and the roast quail. Next up, I want to try these eclairs.
Tony's been working his way through Alla Fratelli, which was the best Christmas gift from my brother and his wife. Last week we had amazing chicken schnitzels with slaw, and he's made most of the pastas and gelato too.
P.S Before Alla Fratelli, Tony's go-to cookbook was Eat - The Little Book of Fast Food by Nigel Slater. We love it so much that we both bought copies for our brothers. And if you watched Rachel Khoo's Kitchen Notebook Melbourne, I found all of the recipes here.
