The Great British Chefs Cookbook Club: July 2024

Welcome to the Great British Chefs Cookbook Club! Find out how it works, how to get involved and what prizes you can win.

Even with the vast number of recipes available on the internet these days, there’s nothing quite like leafing through a beautiful book full of recipes. It’s a medium that’s stronger than ever before, with cookbooks topping bestseller charts throughout the year. If you’re anything like us then you’ll have shelves upon shelves of them in your home – some kept in pristine condition, others earmarked, stained and scrawled over after years of use.

It’s this national love for cookbooks that has prompted us to start our very own cookbook club. Each month we’ll select a cookbook that we think stands out from the rest and ask you, the Great British Chefs community, to cook a recipe from it. We’ll publish a small selection of recipes on our site so, even if you don’t already have the book, you can still get involved and see how your cooking compares to everyone else’s. Apply to join the Facebook group here and take a look at this month's book (and recipes) below. We've also included the winning post from last month's book, as well as some of our other favourite entries.

This month's cookbook is Kin by Marie Mitchell

For July, we're cooking from Kin by Marie Mitchell. It's full of recipes from across the Caribbean and the Caribbean diaspora, with accompanying essays on the history of Caribbean cuisine. The recipes are moreish, approachable and the sort of food you'll want to cook again and again. Take a look at some of the book's recipes below for a taster of everything Kin has to offer.

Last month's winners

In June, you all cooked dishes from BBQ Days, BBQ Nights and we were really impressed with the results. A massive congratulations to our cookbook club winner Lorna Banford. They win a prize. Take a look at Lorna's entry below, as well as those from our runners up.

Our winner this month is Lorna Banford with this fiery Scotch bonnet lamb shoulder. That crust looks incredible – almost too good to eat!
Marg Burgess made Eleanor Ford's cherry bundt cake. A beautiful choice for the height of cherry season!
The Ambassador’s Mille-Feuille is such a playful and fun recipe we were hoping someone would tackle it! Tracy Carey took the plunge and absolutely nailed it with this gorgeous dessert.
Claire Evans made this sweet coconut panna cotta for Father's Day. We're so pleased to hear it was a hit!
July Singer made a really beautiful spread of dishes – the pork belly looks so beautifully tender, and we love the grill marks on the pineapple. Gorgeous!
Jacqui Mckendrick made the arayes platter – the stuffed flatbreads look so comforting, and we're glad you've found another stuffed pitta to add to your repertoire!
David Fairgrieve made a recipe from Thomasina Miers' Home Cook – it looks so summery and delicious!
Marta Biriș made these tangy tamarind chicken wings, a barbecue classic, freshened up with some crisp asparagus. The dream summer dinner.
Yvonne Harris really took taco Tuesday to the next level with this all out barbecue spread. We're so glad you enjoyed the pork belly, and the green salad on the side is the perfect refreshing pairing.

Make sure you post photos along with commentary of the dishes you cook this month in our Facebook group to be in with the chance of winning.
