The Best Ever Birthday story cook book giveaway
NuffNang have featured an advertisement for this awesome story cook book on my blog for a few weeks & i was lucky enough to review it too, now i have one to giveaway!! I purchased & blogged about the first book in this series 'My Grandmother's Kitchen' by Louise Fulton Keats (granddaughter to the Australian cooking doyen Margaret Fulton) . . . they are both fantastic!!
The Best Ever Birthday starts off as a story, where you follow LuLu & Henry on a party journey . . . uh oh, Nutmeg the puppy + birthday cake . . . i won't spoil the ending!!
Then the book is filled with recipes (from the story) with everything from sandwiches to drinks!!
It's simple to follow with practical recipes you will use over & over.
Jam packed with themes & ideas.
Including a teddy bear picnic - yes please!!
I'm now devoting my life to finding this pink pedestal, what a sweet way to present a meringue!!
Now this Basic Butter Cake recipe is as close to my mother's i have ever tasted (perhaps my mummy was using Margaret Fulton's original??) Printed with striped vintage straws, i love the layout, colour & quirky imagery in the book, page after page of pretty.
We left only crumbs . . . next time i'm doubling the batter as it is a fantastic school recess treat.
Look at the inside back cover, see what i mean, scrummy.
Fancy a copy of this beautiful story cookbook in your kitchen library?? Just leave a comment at this post & please be a follower of my blog. Winner drawn Friday 15th June, value $24.95, good luck!! Love Posie
This was Product Talk by NuffNang. Thanks!!
