The cookbook as a work of art

My  Annabell Langbein Free Range Cook book came today! It is  absolutely wonderful!

Not only are the recipes fresh, exciting and  delicious, but the beautiful photography makes each dish, each meal, look like an  inviting, sensual delight. The menus from her cooking  series are there so you can plan an entire meal from appetizer to dessert.  Interspersed throughout is Ms. Langbein’s commentary, showing her devotion to wholesome, fresh food, simple living, and her appreciation of  and for the people who produce that food and the beautiful  New Zealand landscape that surrounds her. 

 I can’t wait to try some of the recipes.  And I have decided that we MUST grow squash in our garden this year, or at least zucchini, just so we can try her chevre-stuffed zucchini flowers. Watch out, evil squash vine borers-  we  will fight once more

If your local  public television channel  carries the show, you might want to check it out.  It’s shown in my area on APTV Create, but  the  schedule seems to vary quite a bit and I’ve missed a few shows. You can check  for your area on her website which has a link to the  US  stations that carry her show.

 The cookbooks are available from Amazon; This is the one I  have: The Free Range Cook: Simple Pleasures.
