The Cottage Kitchen; Cozy Cooking in the English Countryside, a review
This is the kind of cookbook I love to peruse on cold, blustery days. The author, Marte Marie Forsberg, gives us a mix of lovely stories, photographs, and a book full of recipes from her Norwegian childhood, her now English home, and her travels.
The recipes are divided by seasons as well as an additional chapter called Afternoon Tea. Each chapter opens with the author sharing stories that I found very interesting. Each recipe also contains the short story behind it.
The photographs bring one in to the beautiful English landscape where the author now makes her home. I have a few recipes already marked to try very soon, the first being what she calls "Her Mother's Ode to Cabbage" (called Creamy Cabbage Stew in the Index). For my mother also loved cabbage.
The Cottage Kitchen was provided by Blogging For Books for the sake of review but the opinions are my own.
