CafeSigrun, a popular and award-winning Icelandic website with recipes free of e.g. refined sugar, white flour, butter and yeast (also available in English). This is her first cookbook. She creates all the recipes, prepares everything in her own kitchen, and takes all the photographs herself.
These days I'm pretty much thinking in recipes. I recently told a friend that if you ask me how I am I might as well answer with names of cooking or baking ingredients instead of saying I'm well. As much as I have been enjoying the project, I have to confess that it has involved some suffering as well, something I didn't take into account before agreeing to it: The photographs of all the delicious soups, salads, vegetarian dishes, chicken, fish, cakes, ice cream, confectionery, cold and warm drinks (I could go on and on) that I would find in my inbox almost every day! There I am sitting by the computer, all innocent editing a certain chapter, when I get a notification that I have mail. I open an email to maybe find 4 or 5 images of a slice of chocolate cake with the question: „Which one do you like best?“ I'm telling you, it can be agonising, especially when you don't have that slice of cake waiting for you in your own kitchen!
These images are a just a teeny tiny preview of the book (and my inbox suffering!).
Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy these final days of August!
