Book, done and dusted..

It goes without saying, the longer you have to do a translation, the longer you will take.

Boy, I was glad to finally hand in the final version of the infamous chef's recipe book. I'd got a little tired of having my mouth constantly watering, to only find that my fridge was bare of ingredients (when I'm on a project, the housework/shopping gets left for later).

It will be interesting to see how it actually translates, not in the literal sense - that work is already done, but whether it achieves good sales, although the print run is going to be limited. It's not going on sale here, so I just hope the editorial might give me a copy.

Will keep Amazoning over the next few months to see if anything comes up..

Manzanas, massanas, pomes, apples.. Call them what you like

After several failed attempts, I've finally mastered how to make a good apple crumble. It just requires good juicey apples, a dash of brandy (if available) and proper butter in the crumble. E liked my sis-in-law's version with pistachios that I think I'll have to try it out.

A simple dessert, done in no time that doesn't require a properly functioning oven! (Mine has taken a liking to either burning or doing nothing, it doesn't do things by half measures so I discovered at my one and only attempt to make a Christmas cake last year)

If I win the Gordo this year, I definitely be buy this
