New blog!

I've cooked over 100 recipes from Cook with Jamie now. I still have a good few to go but it has reached a stage where the remaining recipes can't practically be cooked as quickly as I have been doing, unless I give up any pretension to sensible eating and live on a diet of seafood and desserts (they being the bulk of the outstanding recipes). I have inevitably begun to imagine Life After Jamie, which I hadn't done before, although I still haven't started counting (it seems horribly soulless). Anyway I will of course continue to blog my way through the remaining recipes but I've also started a new blog project, which I'll develop while I work on through Jamie and continue more frequently after Jamie. My new blog is called From Page to Plate and is intended as a space in which to enjoy and explore my twin loves of food and books (and cookbooks, that neatly combine the two). I will be reviewing my over-extensive cookbook collection, testing out recipes, trying out new foods, and also writing about the novels that sustain me as much as food. Check out the beginning of my blog on

I won't forget about Jamie, though, and this blog will continue apace - plenty of exciting recipes to come (I haven't even got to the meringue section yet.... that could be very exciting, since I've never made a meringue in my life). In a sense this blog is the most extensive cookbook review I've ever done and will ever do, and I feel I've still got some distance to go before I can offer up a considered opinion. I certainly need to try the Ultimate Gingerbread first!

Hi Kathryn!! For a moment I thought you were giving up on Jamie.... phew!! Your dishes and comments have been an inspiration, keep up the good work.
Love, Jayne x

Kathryn said...

Hi both,

Thanks for stopping by, Jayne, and for your nice comments. Rest assured, I am not giving up. Not after tasting that incredible gingerbread! No, seriously, I love Jamie's book and I won't give up until I've finished.

Freya - thank you for the support!

Hey! I know this is somewhat off topicقهوة but I was wondering
if you knew where I could find a captcha plugin for my comment form قمر?
I'm using the same blog platform as yours and I'm having difficulty finding one?
