So when I started this blog, I had a vision; Italian and Persian working class food.
2 1/2 years of blogging, 6 years of expatriatism and lots of calories later, all of that was lost. I started looking to remind me of travel, to comfort me when I was feeling homesick. And I began to challenge my skills and knowledge of technique and limits of food.
All of that changed.
Today I’m here to share 2 firsts: a kale dish -and- a cookbook giveaway!
The world of kale opened up to me when I found The Roasted Root’s blog. Kale ere’where.
The Englishman has had plenty of kale – it stampot, of course. What’s that? It’s a Dutch dish; basically a conglomeration of mashed veg in a heavy-duty cast iron pot. Without a shred of herbs…can I get a little salt or something!?
Anyways, kale in curry. Did you know it’s a thing? Totes is.
And it’s in Julia’s book! Plus eleventybillion other drool-worthy recipes all featuring that leafy green that hipsters and granola lovers seemed to have only recently discovered.
Julia was kind enough to pass on her cookbook to me (allll the way here in Amsterdam). And because sharing is caring, I’m going to pass this little gem off onto a lucky reader.
Tell me why you think you should win the book, and you’ll get a fancy package from this little corner of the world from Julia + me.
The recipe for this awesome curry is in the book!
Get your comment in before Monday, August 4th!
Thanks to everyone who entered! The giveaway is officially closed.
