The Cottage Kitchen by Marte Marie Forsberg

The Cottage Kitchen

It’s that time of year again. I’m hunting and gathering for holiday cookbooks.  THE COTTAGE KITCHEN is  wonderfully filled with pristine photographs of the English countryside  and dreamy delicious recipes to go with. Toss in a photographic English Pointer dog named Mr. Whiskey,

and you’ve got a great gift to give or to keep for yourself.

Marte has divided her book into seasons. Each section has starters and sides; mains; desserts; and drinks.  I think you’ll find something wonderful you will want to make in each season. I sure have.  I did jump right into summer with her recipe for tomato tarte tatin with burrata.  She actually discovered this recipe while living in France. And, to tell you the truth, that is where I first heard of it.  I had heard of doing apple, but she has stepped it up and made it savory. Yum.  Using all fresh summery ingredients, it’s something we here in S.W. Florida can create almost all year round. I know I will.

There’s a great section called Afternoon Tea that I think you will love. Plus, I loved the pictures she’s added of her mom.  Of course mom is making some scrumptious delights.

Marte Forsberg Is a professional food and lifestyle photographer, tastemaker, and creator of the blog The Cottage Kitchen. She lives in a charming cottage in the English countryside with her English Pointer, Mr. Whiskey. How cool is that!

This is much more than a cookbook. This is the story of one woman’s settling into  a new life and home.  The writing is divine and will draw you into Marte’s life.  The food and the dog will make you stay.

My gorgeous finished copy of THE COTTAGE KITCHEN was provided through Blogging For Books in exchange for an honest review. This one is a real keeper! Published by Clarkson Potter.
