A few months ago I started participating in Cook the Books - we read and cook based on something in the book that inspires us. The first month I joined the fun, I won. Then life got hectic and I had to skip a couple of months. But I read and cooked for the June-July version when we read Laura Childs' Death by Darjeeling. Click here to see my original post, with recipes for Mint Tea Shortbread and Earl Grey Brownies with Lavender Ganache.
Well, it just so happens that the author herself was our guest judge. And out of all the entries, she picked my recipes. Woohoo. Here's what she wrote...
“What an amazing assortment of recipes! Reading through them – seeing the photos – was so inspiring that I wanted to dash into my own kitchen and get creative.
That said, I have to admit that I was super impressed with the Mint Tea Shortbread and Earl Grey Brownies with Lavender Ganache from Culinary Adventures with Camilla. I think that’s our winner for a copy of AGONY OF THE LEAVES. Congratulations, Camilla! Send me your shipping address in an email.
Many thanks to all who participated and for inviting me to be your guest judge – it was so much fun!
All my best,
P.S. If it’s possible to get the recipes for some of the entries (or all of them) I would love to include a few in my next book which I will be starting soon and is tentatively titled PEKOE MOST POISON. Of course, I would give full credit to the bakers!”
So, I get a new book to read and my recipes might make it into her next book. Fun!
