Book Review - Annabel Karmel - Annabel's Kitchen




I was lucky enough to be sent the new Annabel Karmel cookery book recently which accompanies her new's ITV children's cookery series. I already own a couple of Annabel's books so was eager to test out her new recipes. I have no idea how she does it, but her recipes make my children want to eat their meals - Annabel's Pot Noodle is a real favourite in our house!

As soon as the book arrived my 8 year old grabbed it exclaiming that she had seen adverts for the show and it looked really good. She wanted to look through the book and see which recipes we could cook - we will still be working our way through them at Christmas - there are loads!

I chose 2 of the recipes to test: Chicken Burgers and Breakfast Pancakes.

Both of the recipes are well explained, use easily accessible ingredients and have lovely pictures to accompany them (I wish I looked half as glamorous as Annabel when I cook!)

The breakfast pancakes did not have a strong taste but we topped our with ice-cream and raspberry sauce and they were just lovely.

The chicken burgers were gorgeous! I have never made my own burgers before and I thought starting with a children's recipe was a good place to start. They were really tasty and suitable for both adults and children. A definite make-again!

This book also contributes toward reaching my goal of owning and using 200 cooking/baking books before I'm 40 - see the rest of the list here

This is not a sponsored post - I did not receive any payment for this review but enjoyed using the book very much - Thank you!
