Happy New Year! I hope that you had a fantastic Christmas and New Years Eve! I know that I have a lot of catching up to do, so please be patient with me :-)
I received a lot of wonderful Christmas presents which I’m very thankful for. Some of them are food related and some not. As I love new cookbooks, like many of you I presume, I wanted to show my new ones.
The first one, “Den goda julen” by Christer Lingström with Christmas recipes only, I received by mail the day before Christmas Eve. It turned out that I had won it, after taking part in an internet competition. It was a very fun surprise! For next Christmas I will probably try out some of the recipes.
The second one, “Med smak av Japan” by Dag Hermelin, is a Japanese cookbook that I got from my friend Christian. I’ve browsed through the book in the book store earlier and I was really happy to get it. I’m very interested in Japanese culture and food, but I’ve never tried to cook it at home. The recipes in this book seem quite simple and very tasty, so it will be really fun trying them out.
Last but not least, I got “Jamie’s Italy” by our dear Jamie Oliver from darling Fredrik. I’ve already tried the “Torta di riso” and I’m sure that this cookbook will result in a lot of delicious dishes.
