If you're new to my blog, you might not know my insider tip for buying new cookbooks. Before I ever purchase a cookbook, I always check it out at the library first. This allows me to weed out the superb from the sub-par, and peruse each book at leisure, before I make the financial commitment to cook beyond my culinary means.
My latest borrow from the library was What Katie Ate by Katie Quinn Davies. She also has a blog of the same name with plenty of delectable eats. This cookbook boasts impeccable food photographs, funky fonts, and an artsy piecemeal spread of text and graphics that has a vintage vibe.
Some recipes that stood out to me...
+ Strawberry, apple, and almond breakfast muffins
+ Caramelized onion and goat cheese tartlets with balsamic syrup
+ Pumpkin ravioli with brown-butter sauce and roasted pecans
+ Barbecued sweetcorn with chile, mint, and lime butter
+ rhubarb, mascarpone, and hazelnut tartlets
