My Kitchen Rules – Colin Fassnidge Has His First Cookbook Out – FOUR Kitchens
On Monday night I attended the launch for Colin’s first cookbook FOUR Kitchens. Yep sometimes writing this blog comes with some perks. And yes the canapes served were from his cookbook. So I can vouch for the tastiness of the Crispy Ham and Cheese Balls with Mustard Creme Fraiche, pork popcorn and there was some very yummy crispy chard.
In short his book is about restaurant quality food to cook in the home. It the opposite to Four Ingredients and cook a meal in under 15 minutes which is the trend at the moment.
It is not an Irish cuisine cookbook though there are a couple of recipes that nod at his background. Recipes that look delicious include Slowly Braised Brisket, Miso chicken, and Beetrrot Brownie with Vanilla and Ginger Creme Fraiche. But don’t think that it is a dinner party cookbook as there are a lot of recipes you can use to give your everyday meals a bit of a lift.
He does have a recipe for fennel popsicles which claims that it is sneaky way to get kids to eat vegetable. Hmmm not quite convinced on that one Colin.
The book is out in most of the stores and can be found at Big W and KMart for under $30.
