Blending the Cultures Cookbook Review
You may remember this delicious chicken meatball recipe that was a guest post from Tanya Bartolini last year. It’s a favourite in our house and Miss E is pretty miffed now when she bites into a meatball with no cheese.
Tanya released a cookbook late last year and we were sent a copy to look over and try out some recipes. It has fast become a favourite in Mel’s house, with so many of the recipes passing the family taste test – it’s always a winner when BOTH kids eat dinner!
We both love a good book and have cookbook addictions!! This book ticks both boxes so beautifully. The stories Tanya shares of her Italian family and heritage just make this book so much more special than a regular cookbook, and we both loved reading it just as we would a regular book.
Mel found herself in the garden with a cup of tea while the kids played, enjoying it and Danni keeps hers on the coffee table so she has not only something interesting to read all the time but inspiration for dinners as well!
Take a sneak peak at some of the recipes…
The recipes – oh the recipes! Mel’s favourite was the Merengo ‘ice-cream’ which she made for a Christmas Day dessert. Everyone thought it was fantastic and it was simple to make – served with fresh raspberries it was truly delicious and will now be a Christmas Day dessert for years to come.
Tanya runs a great site called The Kitchen Bench which had loads of other fantastic recipes for busy mums and families. We love getting the emails! Lots of other tasty things have been tried so far and there will be definitely more to come!
