What’s Going On…
Today, I’m super excited to share with you a cookbook! Yes, I know it’s a bit of a different format, but I really do love a good cookbook and I’m excited to learn some new things. This is super relevant to me these days as I’ll be trying to cook at home more in the future. House buying aftermath!
Please make sure you check out some of the other awesome blogs on the tour. You can purchase the book now from your favorite book seller. Here is a handy Amazon Link!
Julia was a child that love to cook with family and collect recipes. She first began cooking while living in Melbourne in 2008 when she took a culinary class. She was seeking a way to support herself in the aftermath of a divorce and found that cooking was both a way to earn income and to help heal her soul. After moving to London as an adult, she used her Tupperware business as a way to try, and to share recipes.
Comfort Food is filled with pages of deliciousness, and Julia shares her passion and her oh-so-fabulous goodies. She notes her personal favorite is an Irish Fruit Cake recipe from her great-grandmother. I think the addition of family recipes and personal touches adds an extra layer of comfort to Julia’s Comfort Food.
As I’ve mentioned, I do have a small collection of cookbooks. I even have a signed Bobby Flay book! However, I personally prefer a book with recipes that I can easily follow, and not have to haunt specialty stores to acquire ingredients. Julia’s recipes are easy, budget friendly and relate-able. It’s food you’re honestly going to want, and be able to make. As an added bonus, there are several recipes that are vegetarian or can easily be made as vegetarian versions.
Top recipes from Comfort Food that I’m excited to try are her Mushroom and Spinach Gnocchi, Butternut Squash and Goat Cheese Rolls, Tropical Fried Rice and Humming Bird Cake.
Overall, I think this book will make a welcome addition to any kitchen. If you’re looking for something a bit different, or a gift idea, Julia has included a section of recipes from Ireland, Scotland and Wales. This gives the book that little something that sets it apart.
If you pick up this book and decide to make anything I’d love to hear about it!
