The competition is now closed and thanks to everyone that entered this competition – I’m chuffed that it even got re-tweeted by Sami Tamimi and Yotam Ottolenghi! The Co-pilot has completed his judging duties and… a big congratulations to Lizzy and Denise on winning the two Jerusalem cookbooks!
One Christmas after the birth of our second child,my hubby left my Christmas gift at home. We had travelled to my parents for Christmas. He asked me what I wanted, and I said I didn’t know. So he bought me a box of “I don’t knows”, random craft items. Glitter glue, textas, sticky tape. This year I got a box of Lyndt Chocolates. He likes to buy random gifts….I wish he would by me random cookbooks like the Jerusalem cookbook.
Once we were back home, I bought the Jerusalem cookbook promptly – but instead of keeping it for myself, I gave it to the Co-pilot’s mother for Christmas. (It’s not a selfless plan mind you, as the Co-pilot’s mum is a brilliant cook and with some strategic enthusiastic finger pointing and page tapping, I’ll be leaving less than subtle hints on the recipes I’d like to see recreated for family dinners). Evil genius, I know.
We had lunch with friends yesterday who already have the Jerusalem Cookbook. The slow cooked lamb and salads made from recipes in the book were simply ,,, nom nom nom :)))
