How has your week been going so far, readers? I can hardly believe it’s the middle of December! As I will be hitting the one year mark of blogging I have put together a little giveaway to say thank you for following me along on this journey for the past year. This blog started off as a hobby, to document my
culinary misadventures endeavours to become a better cook and finally learn the delicious traditional Asian recipes I had been eating all my life. My first ever recipe on the blog was an easy chicken curry, which we eat very regularly in our family. Not only that that, but it got me doing something productive and creative instead of just vegging out once this exhausted teacher got home from work. Now on to those prizes which have kindly been sponsored by Absolute Press and Drink Me Chai.
Atul Kochhar is a Michelin award winning chef who is renowned for his creating vibrant yet contemporary Indian food. This cookbook from Absolute Press contains recipes from his restaurant, Benares.
I remember watching Atul Kochhar as an Bengali girl growing up in a small English city, and I used to feel really inspired watching him cook. I always love hearing him talk about food because although it is clearly inspired by traditional recipes from the Indian sub-continent, he often adds these fusion twists to make it more appealing to audiences in the UK. And of course I love anything where you get to play with spices! This cookbook has a RRP of £30.00 and is a must have recipe companion for any serious foodie with an interest in Indian cooking.
I also have a chai latte gift set from Drink Me Chai. In the set we have full 250g drums of chai latte mixes in vanilla and spiced flavour. As well as 3x 20g spiced sample sachets. To make the chai latte, all you need to do is add hot boiling water to a few teaspoons of the mix. Or to make it a little creamier, then use hot frothy milk, yum. If you are a tea addict like me, then you need to try these out. It makes it so quick and convenient to knock up a creamy chai latte at home with minimal effort.
