The Great British Chefs Cookbook Club: February 2018

The Great British Chefs Cookbook Club: November 2022

1 December 2022

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, you can cook from any book previously featured in the Cookbook Club!

As 2022 begins to draw to a close, we thought that we'd change things up a bit for December and take a moment to look back at all the amazing cookbooks previously featured in the Cookbook Club. That means that in December you can cook recipes from any past Cookbook Club cookbook, as well any other recipes on the Great British Chefs site. Whether you choose to revisit old favourites or discover something new in a book already on your shelf, this is your chance to go wild!

Last month's winners

Last month we got stuck into our very own Kitchen Twists. Well done to Lyn Waldron for coming top – they win a prize! Take a look at their entry along with many more honourable mentions below.

Viki Paterson used Toulouse sausages in her sausage and mascarpone orzo with great results.
Helen Sara Knott decided to try the sweetcorn smash burger and fell in love with the candied jalapeños!
Teresa Lynch's chocolate orange babka looked as pretty as a picture.
Marta Biris chose to make individual versions of the miso banoffee pavlova in Kitchen Twists.
Kim Lesley Ferris topped her fillet steak and creamy white beans with semi-dried tomatoes.
Making a chocolate fondant with a perfectly oozy centre is no easy task, but Susannah Day nailed it with her chipotle chilli fondants.
Lindsay Clark certainly isn't scared to mess with a classic, as demonstrated by her impressive recreation of Kitchen Twists' gochujang aubergine parmigiana.
Diane Holmes enjoyed her passion fruit and yoghurt Mississippi mud pie so much, she's already planning to make it again on Boxing Day!

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.
