Home cook of the year.

Hello everyone, I hope you’ve all had a delicious and enjoyable festive period.
I’ve got a little bit of exciting news to share with you all. If you follow any of my social media feeds or read the Cook supplement in The Guardian then you’ve probably spotted that I quite enjoy submitting my recipes to their reader recipe swaps. If you’re not familiar with it then it works like this; every week they set a theme and readers are invited to submit recipes which fit that theme, if they like them they make them. If they really like them you win!

It’s very exciting when you win because a beautiful picture of the recipe that you created gets printed in the weekend Cook supplement. They always look so much better than the pictures I post!

Anyway, at the end of the year the most successful submitter (is that a word?) is awarded the title of Guardian Home Cook of the Year. Well this year it’s me!
I can’t quite believe it, it’s totally unexpected, the other contributers submit such wonderful sounding recipes.
I thought I would do a little round up of some of my winning recipes (just click on the captions) and share my good news with you at the same time.

  • A little belated but **Congratulations** on being awarded cook of the year, well deserved! I really enjoy dreaming up recipes and find submitting quite addictive, seems like you, too. All the best for 2017! Anna

    • Thank you so much Anna! You’re so right – having a theme to follow is so much fun and I love seeing other peoples ideas for them too.
