OFM's Vintage Cookbooks

Out of the main bustle of the Coffee shop this is where people gather to share recipes and tips/tricks.

Badger's mate - which months would be best for you so we can tentatively start arrangements


Assuming a preference for a weekend on the grounds of inclusivity, the next few weeks would be out due to our whereabouts, engineering work on the railways and your date in London next week. We've got about half the weekends free between mid Feb and the end of May, with June and July looking less busy at the mo. See what suits people when you meet up and we'll fit in if possible.

I bought this when it first came out in paperback in 1989 - it's been my bible for Middle Eastern recipes ever since - superb :kneel: :luv:

Not only a great cookbook but Yotam's appreciation really adds something
I keep thinking I should try making kibbeh, my suspicion is you could do the final kneading in K mixer, I have a vague feeling I've seen something similar done, but I don't have a stand mixer and I'm not sure to whom I'd feed a kilo of kibbeh :lol:

Lindsey Bareham on Good Things by Jane Grigson.

https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyl ... ood-things

I love Grigson's writing and I think I have most of her books.

Synergy
Like Ms Bareham I found my original paperback copy of Good Things yesterday, and thought I must get a new one as a couple of pages are missing

I've heard of Yan Kit So, but never used the book, she does seem to be a favourite with food writers
Probably won't be making a recipe that requires 20 large scallops, don't want a new mortgage

Never heard of her. Sorry. The recipes look impossibly long, even those not requiring 20 scallops.

But given that I can no longer eat oysters, 10 scallops between the two of us is but a small indulgence ;) :chops:
