Let me tell you about the best cook book I have seen in a LONG time! I find most cook books either don’t have the beautifully staged photos my palate desires or they contain do not a big variety in recipes and aren’t really inspiring me to challenge myself in the kitchen! Lick Your Plate is a “lip smackin’ book for every home cook”
From No Fork Required (Appetizers) to Rules to Roost (Chicken & Turkey) this cook book actually contains it all, and let’s not forget two of the most important categories Brunch and Desert, the pages are filled with culinary lip smackin’ pleasures that will have you wanting to go get groceries right now, children in tow or not!
I had the pleasure of attending the launch of the Cook Book here in Vancouver, which served bite size tastes of heaven! I was in complete heaven as the bites were brought out on a continuous rotation from Apple, Fig Jam & Brie Grilled Cheese Bites to Cajun Oven Fries with Spicy Ketchup to the most amazing line up of deserts; Banana Chocolate Chip Cupcakes with Banana frosting to the heavenly.. oh so heavenly Chewy S’mores Pudding Cookies. This event was everything this cook book is and more!
The photos alone in this book are so incredible, it’s been my daily meal time inspiration with 160 recipes which are not only family friendly but they are fast, easy and fool-proof. You will willingly want to up your home chef game after reading having this cook book in your kitchen! I think they thing that entices me the most is that the recipes are very much for the most part a twist on classic comfort food!
My cooking style is very much make do with what you have, improvise and have fun. This is the first cook book that has made me actually want to follow the recipes from start to finish. We hope that you will pick up a copy yourself, we are very much looking forward to continuing to try out these recipes and sharing our personal favourites with you!
