Green Seasons Cookbook – A Win & A Giveway #9
As some of you will know, I am a vegetarian and have been so for about twenty years. I have to confess that this is not a hardship as I’m not particularly keen on meat and never liked fish. One not so fine day at the village primary school, I sat for an hour chewing on a piece of gristle which I just could not bring myself to swallow; those were the days when you were not allowed to leave the dining room until you had cleared your plate. I had packed lunches from then on and although I always ate my mother’s meat dishes, that was the day meat fell from favour.
So what’s this got to do with chocolate you may well ask? Well, one of my go to vegetarian cookbooks is Rachel Demuth’s Green Seasons. Rachel is a fantastic vegetarian cook and not only, in my humble opinion, has the best restaurant in Bath – Demuths, but also runs a vegetarian cookery school. I did a day’s course there on Middle Eastern cookery a couple of years ago and it was fantastic.
The book is divided into the four seasons of spring, summer, autumn and winter for ease of using seasonal produce; it is also conveniently colour coded to help keep you on track. Each season is divided into seasonal vegetables, small eats, large eats and sweet eats and includes such delights as: sorrel fritata, beetroot tzatsiki, courgette filo pie and leek and potato hash. The book does of course have some chocolate recipes as can be seen by these very delicious breakfast muffins I made. Mexican chocolate pudding has been on my list since I first got the book, but for some reason I still haven’t made it. Nor have I yet made the white chocolate cheesecake, the chocolate pistachio roulade and the chocolate cheesecake brownies.
Anyway, the real point of this post is that I was surprised and thrilled to be picked as a finalist in the recent Vegetarian Cookery School’s veggie breakfast competition for my frumenty recipe. Although, sadly, I didn’t win the grand prize of a cookery school place, the ten finalists won a copy of Green Seasons. Now as I already have a copy of the book, I asked if it would be OK to use it as a giveaway on my blog instead. So you are now in the lucky position of having a chance to win your very own copy. You will need to leave a comment answering the question in the Rafflecopter below. This will then give you additional chances to enter.
