Today, was a day of lunch with some friends. My best kind of Sunday, where I have a table full of friends, good food and wine and good conversation. I am ready to call it an early night, before I start another busy week. To end the weekend, here is the first round of what the bloggers have been saying.
This is a quick first round up of all the fun dishes that the bloggers have been cooking up from the book, not quite full house here still enough to get a full sense of the book and recipes. So here are the posts, recipes and chatter. BTW, all these bloggers are giving away a copy of the cookbook, so do stop by to throw your hat into the ring,
Camilla from Culinary Adventures with Camila, started off with two vegetarian recipes, my Orange and Mustard Cauliflower and Stir Fried Cabbage. Her family enjoyed the meal and her kids pronounced the dishes Red Book worthy! Thanks kids, this is why I made sure we had enough red in the book!
Melanie at MBA Mama, has announced her givewaway and is looking to this book to take her out of her comfort zone. Well, that is my intention and I hope to do it without too much discomfort!
Amanda at Marocmama, cooked up my Khichuri, Meatballs in Saffron Rice and Stir fried potatoes. She liked the flavors, and enjoyed them with Marocbaba, who she has persuaded to finally enjoy Indian food with her.
Sarah at Journeys of the Zoo, shares her thoughts on the book and the narative and I am excited to see which of my recipes end up on her table.
Laura, at The Spiced Life, has also cooked the Saffron Rice with Meatballs and my Quick and Easy Caufliflower with Shrimp. Her post shares her experience cooking Bengali Food for the family.
Alex, from Chowvida cooks up my Anglo Indian style coconut turmeric rice. Alex, made this dish the way I usually do with olive oil instead of with butter. A nice tip on adapting the recipes for a vegan palate and preference.
Cynthia at What a Girl Eats has shared her thoughts on the book and has cooked up, Moorgir Rezala or Chicken in a Creamy Yogurt Sauce, another one of my favorite recipes and one that is perfect for this wintery weather.
Elizabeth, at Frugal Mom Eh, also was happy to be exploring food beyond her usual realm of cooking, picked an Indo-Chinese recipe, my Quick and Zesty Pineapple Shrimp. I am glad, that felt the recipe was restaurant quality.
The last selection for this round up ends on a sweet note, Akheela at Torview Toronto, cooked up one of my classic favorite desserts, the Kalakand or Milk Cake.
I am looking forward to another interesting week of cooking and sharing coming up. Thanks ladies for getting the cooking and sharing!
