...a very good place to start... especially if you're a random recipes virgin and there were many of you last month who i'm sure thought that this was an easy ride... well as many of my past
... as last months mega round-up demonstrates, the very reason I started this challenge was to encourage you to use those recipe books... see them in a new light... find out why they're so damn popular... ensure they don't become a dusty, neglected relic... and the way we do that is by playing random recipes...
1 - number your books/place them in a pile/throw them in the air
2 - randomly select a cook book
3 - open the cook book to a random page
4 - cook the exact recipe on that page... do NOT cheat... you are only cheating yourself
5 - you may adapt the recipe for health/dietary/product availability purposes only
6 - post the recipe on your blog linking back to me and my blog
7 - include the random recipes badge in the post
8 - email the post to me at dom (at) belleaukitchen (dot) co (dot) uk
9 - challenge deadline is August 29th
... I did a random shuffle on the floor and selected quite an odd but lovely little book called The Apple Source Book by Sue Clifford and Angela King... i've had the book since I worked at the National Trust property and came home with a bucket-load of apples everyday throughout the autumn... it has some really special recipes in it and covers the hundreds of varieties of apple... and on page 74 where the book fell open was a recipe for the rather wonderful sounding Cheese and Apple Tartlets... the recipe is actually developed by a couple who own a farm in Lincolnshire!... its as though this book was calling to me...
... I shall make the recipe later in the month with a local cheese... now off you pop and go select your random recipe... if you do it now you can plan it into your month... x
