Good morning, and hello Friday! I hope you had a great week. I did and as always I am ready for the weekend.
I have a "date" with this book. I don't know about you but I love cookbooks, I even have a stack of them next to my bed. I enjoy paging through them, looking at the recipes, photos and food styling and stopping along the way to read the stories and interesting food facts.
Eat Feed Autumn Winter by Anne Bramley is one of my favorite cookbooks for those reasons and more. The book is beautifully written and photographed, not to mention has great recipes, fun food tidbits and stories and advice for eating seasonally.
Ann Bramley is an English lit professor with a specialty in food culture. Her interest in food began at the age of 15, with her first subscription to Bon Appetit, and has continued for over 20 years as she has studied foods from all over the world while completing her PhD.
In addition to this fabulous cookbook you can listen to Ann on her award winning Podcast, Eat Feed where you will learn about anything from apples to marzipan.
As you can see from these photos there are recipes for a wide variety of things, from pizza to s'mores, to afternoon tea, to rarebit, to beet fries with blue cheese sauce, and my particular favorite, chocolate beef stew.
Anne has a particular affinity for England, as she studied at Cambridge, so there are numerous recipes and menus devoted to Twelfth Night, Guy Fawkes, A Burns Night, and Sunday Roast to name just a few.
Are you familiar with the cookbook? Or Eat Feed? If so, what do you think and what is your favorite recipe?
If you are not familiar with Eat Feed Autumn Winter I think it would be a wonderful Christmas gift for the food lovers in your life or for yourself. The good news is that because it came out in 2009 you can find some great deals on Amazon!
Do you have a favorite cookbook? I am always interested in learning about new books so please tell me all about it in the comments or if you have written about it on your blog, leave me the link, I will come over.
I hope you have a wonderful, relaxing weekend. Enjoy your day.
