It’s getting very cold and we are
definitely starting to feel the chill.
It’s time to think about wholesome inviting food that will comfort us
through the long dark winter months, plenty of tasty soups and stews to fortify
us and warm our bellies.
I was excited with the delivery
of my new cookbook as it had lots of recipes that make vegetables sound
exciting! Plus rather helpfully the
recipes aim to be quick and simple so easy enough for those always in a mad
rush (getting children from various playdates and school activities) to squeeze
in the time to make them.
Companion autumn and winter cooking with a veg box compliments those that
already use Riverford for the delivery of their seasonal organic veg. They wanted to make cooking with their veg
boxes a pleasurable experience. It’s
certainly easy enough to navigate around the cookbook it is sectioned into
recipes concerning a particular vegetable and also comes with lots of useful
guidance about how to prep and store each one.
I think it gives you the confidence to experiment with vegetables you
might be unfamiliar with using, for us that would be the pumpkins, which we
only ever buy as Halloween decorations!
The roast potatoes with lemon,
rosemary and thyme look amazing!
might just have to try my hand at a few of the recipes and then impress
everyone with my newfound cooking knowledge.
The recipes are broken down well and very clear so even a novice cook
like myself should be able to manage them.
I like the fact they offer variations at the bottom so you can alter the
end result slightly if you wanted. I
think my mum will wonder what’s going on if I presented her with one of the
many delicious recipes!
At the back of the recipe book
you have a section of useful basics, all the things you need to know about
making soups, stock, risottos and dressings.
The book is available to buy for £12.99 from their website, it would
make a wonderful gift for the family foodie, bound to inspire them to
incorporate different vegetables in their meals. It really is a good price for an attractive hardback book with
very tempting pictures, prepare for your mouth to water! The hardest part for me is deciding which
recipe to attempt first, I want to get cracking straight away.
It such a shame Riverford do not
deliver their recipe boxes to my area, please do check before entering the
competition, I would hate for you to be disappointed if you did win. But the good news is they do hope to keep on
expanding so I am sure they will get round everyone one day! Much easier than having to head to the
shops, shopping with children is an experience (to put it politely!)… So if you
can avoid it by ordering recipes boxes then all the better!
