At Brays, we not only love to peruse the wonderfully delicious cookbooks that grace our shelves, we also love trying them out on our family and friends!
Recently Sara’s daughter baked one of Annabel Crabb’s yummy recipes – Blueberry and Orange Cake with Lady Grey Sauce from Special Delivery.
They also highly recommend the Cumin and Cauliflower with Fried Lentils & Spinach Yoghurt in Community by Hetty McKinnon.
Sylvia is another fan of Community – her favourites so far are Balsamic Brussel Sprouts & Puy Lentils with Parmesan & Mint and Spicy Fried Edamame with Eggplant & Soba Noodles.
Bronwyn has been making seasonal variations of Sarah Wilson’s Coco-Nutty Granola from I Quit Sugar since 2013.
More recently, Ottolenghi’s Tomato and Pomegranate salad in Plenty More is Bron’s favourite go-to BBQ salad. However, Bill Granger’s Everyday Asian is her all-time fave, with several never-fail recipes under her belt including Cashew & Chicken Curry and Fish Baked in a Bag with Lime Butter & Potatoes.
Libby is another Yotam Ottolenghi fan. Lately she has been been exploring the various vegetable salads in Jerusalem. She is still swooning over his Roasted Sweet Potatoes & Fresh Figs and Baby Spinach Salad with Dates & Almonds.
Sadly, the first food director of delicious. magazine, Valli Little passed away two weeks ago. In April she celebrated the launch of her last cookbook called My Kind of Food. We’re hoping one of our clever colleagues will soon be inspired to bake her scrummy Moroccan Spice Cake!
