Cookbook 113: Breadmaking

This was definitely a second hand purchase, I know this because it has a dedication to Joan by Geavye (??) dated February 1984.  Breadmaking by Jill Graham is way out of print.  It’s a recipe book of bread, and really that’s all I want sometimes – a whole lot of bread, freshly made and so …

Cook Book 14: Moorish: Flavours from Mecca to Marrakech

The food was plentiful and delicious and everyone ate their fill, and then some.  There were some tricky moments, which I’ll record in the notes, but otherwise this book was great.  The recipes of Moorish: Flavours from Mecca to Marrakech by Greg and Lucy Malouf (again sadly out of print).  A combination of food from …
