Friday food links – 10 Oct 2014

What a stunning morning #nofilter

New food magazines keep popping up at the moment. If you’re lucky enough to live in the US, Jennifer Perillo is publishing her own quarterly magazine on Simple Scratch Cooking. If you’re in the UK, you can always buy her cookbook instead.

And in the UK, Toast, who organise foodie events, have a Kickstarter running to print their first magazine.

I love Shutterbean’s photos of meal prep (there’s also a post about how she prepares for the week ahead)

Justin Gellatly’s St John doughnuts were a major reason for me to hike across London to Maltby Street Market on the odd weekend. Then he went and opened his own bakery and cooking school, Bread Ahead, in Borough Market. They make the same impressive doughnuts in even more outrageous flavours. Meanwhile, I went and had a baby, and haven’t been back to either Borough Market or Maltby Street since. So this film about Justin and his ‘custard grenade’ doughnuts is *not helping*.

And while I pine for Bread Ahead doughnuts, it looks like Joy the Baker’s cinnamon sugar popovers might do the trick. (See also: Bea’s duffins).

I’m Louise, and I’m a compulsive baker, cookbook hoarder and a bit of a food geek. I learnt to cook at home, and later at Tante Marie’s cooking school in San Francisco. With a science degree and a background in IT analysis, I like to understand why a recipe works, not just how to do it. Why the rules are there and when they can be broken.
