The first time I met Sarah Graham was at a Silwood Cooking course. I was the all-knowing-have-been-blogging-for-years and she was the newbie who had just started her own blog A Foodie Lives Here. Well as the saying goes, first impressions last and I could sense from our very first encounter, that this girl is going places. My gut feeling was right and it is therefor with great pride and admiration that I share with you more exciting news……
Sarah has just finished her first book, Bitten and what a delight it is too! What makes this book even more remarkable is the fact that while writing this book, she also had a little baby girl and moved to Johannesburg(which, with time, we will forgive her!).
I received the book last week and have not been able to put it down. I like the size of it, the rustic feel to it and the book is really so much more than a recipe book, with every page I get to know Sarah a little bit better. I love the easy, no-fuss recipes. I love the fact that I have most of the ingredients available. In short, I love the book, I think you should all have a copy. Go quick, find an Exclusive Books and get Bitten, I predict this book will go into second print…..
With us still not eating meat, there were quite a few recipes on my to-try list, but the one I felt like making last night, was the Mashed Chickpeas and roasted Butternut….. of course with a little Nina twist!
