The 3rd Cookbook Club meeting reviewed Deb Perelman’s “The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook” and I made the Coffee Toffee from the cookbook. We had 12 members present which is a really great representation of recipes from the book as it resulted in 12 different dishes being sampled. As usual, our club was ruthless in its review – which I love. I was really keen to hear what everyone thought about the book overall as I have fairly mixed emotions about it. It’s witty and funny in its writing, but sometimes the recipes can fall flat or are lacklustre. Our group was split on a final call of between 5 or 6 out of 10 overall. This overall rating means we’re happy we tried and would seek a recipe or 2 from SmittenKitchen.com in the future, but are not running out to purchase the cookbook.
