If you’re anything like us you have shelves of cookbooks. Clare, Seasoned’s founder, is starting a Cook Book Club with a few local friends and we are encouraging people to do the same. We think the magic ingredients are as follows:
- A few local friends, ideally some of whom don’t already know each other
- A regular time to meet – e.g the first Wednesday of the month, perhaps circulating around people’s houses
- Everyone brings a recipe that they have recently tried, out of a cookbook they love (tasters are optional, but always welcome!)
We’re aiming to share family favourites and give people the incentive to have a go at the recipes you’ve been itching to try or the new cookbook that has been waiting to be christened?
We’ll be posting pictures and links across our social media channels showing what the Seasoned team have been cooking from books this month. Find what we’ve made by following the hashtag #seasonedcookbookclub
The whole idea is for you to be inspired to cook something different or maybe discover a new cookbook author.
To get you going here are some cookbooks by our chefs:
