Purchased your latest book Essential at a book signing in Hamilton. This is THE one for me Annabelle! It looks amazing, and the layout is just what I have been wanting in a complete cookbook. So easy to navigate, and the breakdown at the back of the book showing recipes for Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Vegetarian and Vegan is so, so helpful for those of us (probably most of us actually) who have a family member or members who need such recipes.
Each recipe is also marked if it is GF, DF, V or Vegan, just great. All the basics are icluded with the hundreds of lovely recipes, plenty of photos. I really appreciate the sidebar tips, and love the "This is how I........." pages. Straightforward, inspiring - I really do not think I need any other books - this covers it all. Well, all the savoury foods - this is Volume One - and I am so looking forward to Volume Two for baking, desserts etc:
Annabelle, you have hit this one out of the ballpark (and I have most of your books)Thank you so much for all your hard work.
Wow, thank you for such a kind message. I am so glad you are enjoying the book - I am very proud of it and am sure you will use it over and over again.
Share with us some of the recipes you try!
I purchased ESSENTIAL Volume One Savoury, recently at a local bookstore and WOW! I agree whole heartedly with feedback from possum92.
You are my favourite cook/author, and I have tried a range of recipes from your previous books.
Last night I had friends over for dinner, a mix of vegetarians and meat lovers. I made it an Annabel Langbein dinner night.
From your Essental Book I cooked for dinner:
I planned to have your vegan chocolate mousse for dessert last night, but I accidently tipped out the chickpea liquid from the pumpkin and chickpea cake recipe. I was very disappointed ... next time.
My friends really enjoyed their dinner and I attributed all to you sharing your expertise, and people like me just giving it a go.
Thanks for sharing your menu - it sounds divine!
So glad you are enjoying the new book and the recipes.
Keep up the great cooking!
