Food Gays Cooking In Color Cookbook
A Must Buy Cookbook for all Ultimate Foodies
As a frugal lifestyle blogger, I never buy cook books because you can google the shit out of Google to get gazillion free recipes plus I usually don’t even have the time to cook in between going to events and of course, working a regular job. But of late, after eating the same ol same ol meals at the same ol take out places, my taste buds are tired of the same old same old and want a new tasting adventure. Well, I was lucky enough to get a copy of the The Food Gays new cookbook “Cooking in Color” at the launch party.
I’ve known The Food Gays for about 5-6 years since they started blogging. Before Jeremy Inglett went to culinary school and then got a job at Hawksworth, Uprising Breads and various other establishments, the photos that The Food Gays posted on their social media feeds demonstrated their skills in food styling and photography (Adrian Harris is the genius behind the camera). Each of the food photos by The Food Gays is colourful and arranged meticulously to stimulate your taste buds into instant drool. With Adrian’s photography skills and Jeremy’s culinary creations, it came as no surprise to anyone that the Cooking in Colour cookbook was born.
What I like about the Cooking in Color cookbook is that its chock full of interesting recipes from decadent desserts from over gazillion calories to vegan and healthy salads under minus gazillion calories . I don’t need to mention that there are oodles and oodles of drool worthy food photos that will make you want to camp outside of The Food Gays’ house and then when the lights go out, sneak in to raid their fridge. But just don’t leave a bread crumbs or else you’ll be caught!
Cooking with Cooking in Color
Because I gained a million pounds while I was on vacation in Chicago recently, I elected to find calorie-friendly recipes in Cooking in Color and settled on the Brussel Sprout Salad and Roasted Cauliflower (pictured above). Both recipes were easy to follow and took less than an hour to make.I loved the orange juice dressing for the Brussel Sprout Salad as it was a great mixture of sweet and sour flavours. The Roasted Cauliflower flavours was so easy to make as I already had most of the spices in my cupboard and it had an Asian flavour as it utilized Chinese Five Spice Power. I’m excited to try more recipes.
