Last week I hosted a long-overdue meeting of my London Cookbook Club, a potluck gathering where members pick a cookbook and try their hand at making recipes from that cookbook. Back in the spring, after we made a delicious Indian feast, our club selected Orange Blossom and Honey: Magical Moroccan Recipes from the Souks to the Sahara by John Gregory-Smith. We thought traveling to the medinas of Morocco through a delicious dinner would be just the thing for a chilly fall evening.
Cookbook Club Recap
Selfishly, the most amazing thing about London Cookbook Club is that I love having the chance to make a big feast. Usually I make about 3-4 recipes, and I can’t resist a bread recipe. As our Cookbook Club as journeyed from the Peruvian delicacies of the Andes Mountains to an elegant patisserie in San Francisco, every culture combines some form of yeast, flour, water and time to make beautiful bread as a base for their meal.
