Lisa Clarke’s The Cookie Jar
In the lead up to Christmas you want to be filling up the biscuit tins and then along comes Lisa Clark. One of Cape Town’s best known chefs, she is a sought after food stylist – her passion for design and form is unique.
Her lovely book, The Cookie Jar contains 100 recipes for biscuits, rusks and cookies. A truly exciting range which she divides into chapters – favourites, healthy, savoury, homestyle and fancy.
There are a number of old favourites [recipes I have wanted for a long time] and a number of exciting new ones, vegan ones, gluten free ones. The range of savoury bakes for me is fabulous, perfect many of them as snacks accompanying fine wines.
This is a kitchen shelf book you will use often.
