I really like her blog. Funny and not smug. The opposite of that "my fabulous life in France" one.

WH Smith have lots of bargains ATM. Got Maddhur Jaffrey's Curry Nation and Gordon Ramsay's Ultimate Home Cooking for a fiver apiece.

I've been tempted to buy that for a while. Btw, have you been getting my emails, Breadcrumbs?

As a Northern European, I'm totally with you. The winter in London isn't that cold, but it's long. I always forget that March is still pretty much winter and start getting impatient for Spring. We had a glorious Autumn this year though. Was bare-legged until just over a week ago!

I lived in Russia for a year at the end of the Soviet era and by far the best food I had in that time was from Georgia. I still fantasise about the cheesy bread (hatchipuri!

Me too. But I find the Kindle ap on my iPad is the way to go for cookbooks.

August 2014 COTM - Diana Henry: Pure Simple Cooking

It's passata not puree in my edition of the book - maybe that was the problem?

August 2014 COTM - Diana Henry: Pure Simple Cooking

Both times I've made it for guests and it's great because you can do all the prep in advance, and then just stick it in the oven. And let's face it, you can't go wrong with chorizo in my book.

August 2014 COTM - Diana Henry: Pure Simple Cooking

I've made this a couple of times with merguez and really enjoy the combination with the tzatziki.

August 2014 COTM - Diana Henry: Pure Simple Cooking

I've made this twice now. Easy, and big, gutsy flavours. I agree that you need some good bread with it.

As Gio said, it's a little self-absorbed. I'm clearly a horrible, bitter person!

I'd never heard of the blog before. Is it just me that finds it irritating?

I have this for my kindle. It really is fantastic. I made the braised beef cheeks with mango salad and the stuffed mushrooms for a dinner party and they were a big success. He has a restaurant in London which is very well reviewed, btw.

Was he nice, Caitlin? Please tell me that he was! Sounds like a great evening.

I didn't get on with Diana Kennedy at all, and got rid of her book, even though I know it's a classic. I don't think I'm alone, because I seem to recall low participation when she was COTM. I only own 1 Wolfert, the SW France one, and have hardly cooked from it. For me, Roden and Ottolenghi are much more accessible. For Moroccan, I like Ghillie Basan.

I know. I re-read it earlier and the bit about the doves was especially poignant. I met moh when we were both visiting NYC a few years ago. Such a nice lady.

The Cooks House , Good Burmese- Herne Hill (London)

I'm local and got a takeaway from here a few weeks ago. They have two menus - one Burmese, one Indian. We stuck to the Burmese menu and really enjoyed everything we ordered.

July 2014 COTM: Radically Simple - Brunch, Soups

Agree that this is a tasty and easy light meal. I had some leftover Beetroot hummus (David Lebovitz recipe from My Paris Kitchen) which went quite nicely with the quesadillas.

Is there any interest in the British chef and cookbook author Rick Stein? He's written a ton of books, and has a well-regarded fish restaurant in Padstow in Cornwall.

I recently cooked a recipe from RICK STEIN'S FAR EASTERN ODYSSEY and it was absolutely great. Have also had success with RICK STEIN'S INDIA. The accompanying TV programme is also very good.

I haven't yet cooked from PRASHAD - the shame! I also purchased Morito recently for my ipad and I love it. Try the Matrimonio montadito - so simple but so good!
