Happy Easter Monday everyone! Today I have a fun list for you. I am getting married this summer and instead of a traditional bridal shower registry, I decided to make a cookbook wish list! I love to cook and really enjoy flipping through beautiful cookbooks for inspiration in the kitchen. I eat mostly vegetarian and love wholesome delicious food, so I am looking for new ways to create some lovely vegetarian meals, with a few fish dishes thrown in. Below is my current cookbook wish list for my bridal shower:
-Small Plates and Sweet Treats: by Aran Goyoaga, the creator of the beautiful blog Cannelle et Vanille. Aran focuses on creating natural gluten free dishes, with much inspiration coming from her hometown of Bilbao, Spain. Aran’s food photography and styling is so cheerful and inspiring.
-Hollyhock Cooks: from the amazing chefs at Hollyhock Retreat Centre on Cortes Island, BC. They also just released their second cookbook, which looks equally delicious, Hollyhock: Garden to Table. If you ever get the opportunity to visit Hollyhock, the food there is so fresh and nourishing, the meals are made with love from ingredients right out of their gorgeous garden.
-La Tartine Gourmande: this cookbook is so beautifully styled and photographed. It’s by Beatrice Peltre, author of her award winning blog La Tartine Gourmande. You can also watch her cute video about the cookbook here. Her meals are inspired by her native country France, but she also includes meals influenced by her travels and time abroad, as well as many healthful, balanced and gluten free recipes.
-Moro: The Cookbook: I have been wanting to get Samuel and Samantha Clark’s cookbooks for awhile now. There dishes are inspired by the flavours of Spain, North Africa, and the Eastern Mediterranean. They have two other cookbooks that I just may add to the list as well, Casa Moro and Moro East.
-The New Persian Kitchen: I am interested in getting this cookbook to add some new flavours in the kitchen. It’s by chef Louisa Shafia, who infuses Persian ingredients such as rose petals, dried limes, and tamarind into her healthful recipes.
Hope you enjoyed the list and if you have any recommendations for other cookbooks I should add, I would love to hear from you!
