Hello! As I mentioned in My Week roundup, a few weeks ago I had the pleasure of attending a very special event - The Cookery Book Salon with Sasha Wilkins aka LibertyLondonGirl at Kate Spade, to celebrate the release of her new recipe book, Friends, Food, Family.
It was a cool and crisp November evening, and we were ushering inside the Kate Spade flagship in Covent Garden, stashed away along a small side street. We were met with champagne, cocktails and delicious canapes, all recipes coming from Sasha's book.
We were left to roam the store, taking in all the gorgeous pieces from Kate Spade, and gently reminded by the wonderful staff that we had 20% off any purchases that evening. There were some stunning pieces - watches, bags, purses and of course the much coveted Kate Spade phone cases. After some time we were ushered downstairs for the main event.
Sasha, looking gorgeous in a Kate Spade dress, talked us through some of her favourite cookery books, from Delia to Charles Phan (complete list here) before opening up to the audience to share their favourites. I shared with the group one of my favourite cookbooks, Thai Cookery Secrets by Kris Dhillon, which I picked up for 50p at a jumble sale.
Once I got home, still woozy from the cocktails, it was straight to bed to flick through the book of the hour (which Sasha was kind enough to sign). This has already shot to somewhere near the top of my favourite cookery books list. Full of anecdotes and stories, it's more than just a recipe book - it really brings the joy out of cooking, and the pleasure of sharing your favourite recipes with others!
I can't wait to make something from this, I have my eye on the mozzarella fried gnocchi for starters!
Have you picked up Sasha's book yet? What are some of your favourite cook books/recipes?
