New Cookbooks

I have one of those awesome credit cards with reward points and have racked up a few points due to my online shopping adventures (some might call it an addiction pffft whatever...). I was looking through the catalogue and saw some awesome cookbooks that i have being eyeing off for a while so decided to get them for FREE with my points yay! 

I purchased '30 Minute Meals' by Jamie Oliver and 'Food Safari' by Mauve OMeara (food from the awesome show of the same name). I spent a couple of hours on the couch with a cup of tea looking through the books and I must say I am spoilt for choice for what to make.

Jamie's '30 minute' recipes have copped a bit of flack for supposedly taking over 1.5 hours to make, but he does say that it may take a bit of practise to get really efficient in the kitchen. Watching him slice mushrooms and onions in the food processor in about 2 seconds has convinced me I need one! I think i'll tackle the 'Wonky Summer Pasta, Herby Salad and Pear Drop Tartlets' next weekend (will have to go to the gym that day for sure!). 

I loved watching the Food Safari show on SBS and am looking forward to making authentic meals from other countries. If only I could get decent sushi grade tuna here in Kalgoorlie...

Check out what looks like a super omnomalicious Tiramasu recipe from the Food Safari website.
