Karen Burnes-Booth’s culinary notebook is an edible atlas of the many places she’s lived and the ingredients, people and places that have inspired her love of food and cooking. Her enticing collection of recipes is particularly strong on breakfast and brunch dishes, and bakers have much to choose from too. Traditional cakes and desserts include wonderfully nostalgia-inducing puddings such as South African Malva Pudding and nutmeg-scented Baked ‘Nursery’ Rice Pudding from Great Britain.
Part travel diary, part memoir, part history, and all cookbook, 'Lavender & Lovage' is an invitation from Karen Burns-Booth to join her on a personal culinary journey through the memories of the places she has lived and visited. Born from her eponymous award-winning blog, this book contains 160 recipes, all beautifully photographed by the author. They showcase the breadth and depth of her travel. Karen has lived and travelled all over the world and has brought some of her favourite recipes, experiences, and memories to share here with her readers.
