No, I'm not 100% but why would you have one when the launch hasn't happened yet Gert  :D

Jaime's Chicken Livers with Welsh Rarebit

Really interesting and different. DH loved it . I used homemade lemon and orange marmalade and my own yogurt. I had to run up to Dan Murphy's as. I discovered not so dear DH  had drunk the last of the Marsala. And I added a bit of Tenina's umami paste. This is the sort of meal it is good for.

I don't mind chicken livers Gert but have only ever had them in days gone by when we used to get the giblets with a chicken and I used to put them in my chicken soup.

Not something I would make or eat, but I'm loving how well you are going cooking from this book Gert. Your meals are looking the same if not better than Jamies

Thanks wonder. The recipe did not appeal to me at all but I thought I would give it a go and it was, agai.n, full of interesting flavours and took only a few minutes to cook. The thing about these meals is there is absolutely no stress to get off your bum while drinking a glass of while watching the news and reading a book becUse you know you can put a meal on the table in a few minutes.

You would not have known these were chicken livers if I had not told you. Nothing like liver at all.  I don't know what the Welsh Rarebit had to do with it but it was good for mopping up the yummy sauce. The salad had a nice tang and balanced the meal perfectly.

Might make Chorizo Carbonara tomorrow as I have a new expensive chorizo Pamplona to o try.

Thanks Gert for another recipe suggestion. I can't abide liver of any nature so I won't be making this one.  :'( :'(

I adore Jamie's 15 and 30 Minute Meals. Except the 15 minute ones seem to take me at least half an hour and the 30 minute ones around and hour and a half!

All delicious flavours and, as Gert says, things you usually have in your fridge or pantry.
A great cook is one who can rustle up a fabulous family meal with some freezer burnt chops, wilted carrots, sprouting potatoes and cabbage that's gone brown on the cut edges.

Ii guess you would not like the offer I had yesterday then Cookie. The owner of a brand new food shop in Cairns told me he had just taken delivery of 440 gms of foie gras and did I want some. He has 4 packets of 110 gms at $40 each. I was soooooooo tempted but the thought of driving I to the city put me off. Too many crazy people out there. It was bad enough negotiating the highway up to Dan Murphy's to get the damn Marsala for DH's lunch.

Gert, I read you post to my DD and she couldn't stop laughing and has now decided that's the book she will cook from when she is on cooking duty over the holidays purely froma time perspective and knowing she won't get in trouble when I get home from work and dinners not started - my trip home is 15 mins away and I always text to say I'm on my way!

Your DD's will love it. Good book for learner cooks as he tells you what to do first to get the timing right. For experienced I cooks I would say read it through first as the text can distracting and you might put the salad ingredients in the pot  instead.

Gretchen, thank you so much for the inspiration to use this book!  I got a copy several months ago, and have never made anything from it.  Thanks to your posts, this book is now getting some serious use  :-*

That is great Karen. Stand by for the chorizo carbonara maybe Sunday. Had to postpone that as I have some smoked eel I want to cook today with pasta.

True, can't stand pâté either! Unless it is salmon or similar. I once prepared all the chicken livers etc and made some. I still couldn't eat it. You may have my share Gert.
