    From my morning BookBub email:


    Hugh Acheson's "A New Turn in the South: Southern Flavors Reinvented for Your Kitchen" Kindle Edition $1.99US

    You can see a list of the recipes using the "Look Inside" function.

    There is also a recipe (scroll down the Amazon page) in the item/product description. 


    I am a US Prime member and the price you see may vary.


    Ah ha, the chef is from Canada (Ottawa, not Ottowa as Amazon would have it) so I had to buy it.

    One more thing. I make cranberry sauce from fresh cranberries - using the recipe on the bag but substituting red wine for all of the water. Also throw in a strip or two of orange peel. The wine does something very nice to the cranberries and the whole business takes about 10 minutes.




    Port is also a good choice. 

  3. A Guardian columnist's take: Is this cooking for idiots? My week eating nothing but "recipe box" food



    Unlike standard veg boxes, which feel like homework (what do you do with celeriac?), recipe boxes are the clever kid who’ll let you copy their work in class. They tell you what to cook, how to cook it and only give you enough ingredients to get it done. The recipes, which change every week, are broken down into an almost insultingly easy series of steps. The boxes make you feel like a kitchen pro, while removing the need to think or make choices. Are they the perfected form of home cooking? Or a symptom of our spoonfed uselessness? Can one live exclusively on them? To find out, I have ordered a selection of the best boxes available in the UK, and I’m going to spend nearly 10 days comparing them. I’ll barely have to leave the house, and will pass that time exclusively eating. In other words: the dream, squared.

    Interesting, my mom never bought blancmange as far as I know when we lived in BC.  I would like to know of a name of a product that I can substitute, if it is not the same as vanilla pudding.


    Based on what @Kasia, who posted the recipe, said, this looks look like it would do the trick:  https://www.amazon.ca/Pearce-Duffs-Assorted-Blancmange-146g/dp/B0051C0Q92

    These same people don't eat eggs or cheese or milk or butter or mayo(OMG), for which no animal died or even suffered. Logic is not in play here.



    Those are vegans, no?

    I have quite a number of them and I found them all interesting but none of them grabbed me as some books can. That is hardly a review.  Just a brief comment.  If any of them really turn your crank you might want to borrow them from the library and make a final decision although at the prices they are it's hard to lose.


    At these prices I buy them and read them like novels before bedtime. If I'm really inspired I'll buy the hard copy.
