Clare, my friend and a parishioner, started an excellent blog several weeks ago. I’ve been meaning to put it up on the sidebar, and I finally accomplished that task. Her last two posts have been on home-made ice cream and hot fudge sauce. Even in the deeps of winter, I would agree: you need such treats to get you through the seasonal drifts of frost and chill.
I will give you fair warning. Clare is an excellent cook. She’s an outstanding writer. And her blog has lots of pictures. Yummy pictures.
A classic cookbook is not going to waste page space on showing you recipes in progress. And I would agree. When I buy a cookbook, I want 600 recipes, not 500 illustrations and 100 dishes. I think the blog is a superior format for giving the best of both worlds: how to cook step by step, and the gift of good writing folded into the preparation of fine eating.
