Outlander Kitchen Review

    My kind of cookbook with not so many ingredients for each recipe. This cookbook must be really awesome for Outlander fans. I only read the first two books and very behind with the TV series. There are excerpt from the story before each adapted recipe which I thought was very cool. Too bad I don't know most of the characters.

    I was given a copy of this book by the author for an honest review. First and foremost let me start by saying that this book is amazing. I loved the first Outlander Kitchen book and this one is just as good. If you don’t own the first book, what are you waiting for? Not only is Theresa a great chef, but she’s also a great writer. From Pender Island, British Columbia, Theresa brings us into her Outlander kitchen and makes us want to move in right next door. I’ll help with your herb garden Theresa I was given a copy of this book by the author for an honest review. First and foremost let me start by saying that this book is amazing. I loved the first Outlander Kitchen book and this one is just as good. If you don’t own the first book, what are you waiting for? Not only is Theresa a great chef, but she’s also a great writer. From Pender Island, British Columbia, Theresa brings us into her Outlander kitchen and makes us want to move in right next door. I’ll help with your herb garden Theresa and I’m really good at gardening. *wink* Have you ever wondered what the food you read about in a book tastes like? Wonder no longer, Theresa paints us a very vivid picture of the food from Outlander. How lucky are we?I loved reading the introduction to each recipe and how she described its origins. She manages to take recipes from the Outlander books and turns them into reality. If you're like me, you'll be salivating reading them. I foresee a Tarte Tantin and Young Ian's Grilled Succotash Salad in my very near future. In Outlander Kitchen: To The New World and Back Again, Theresa brings us even more recipes from the Outlander and Lord John world. From Benedicta's Steak and Mushroom pie, to Jenny's Breakfast Crumble and Savannah Clam Chowder, Theresa really does bring you on a trip to the New World and back again. In this book she has added gluten-free, dairy-free, vegetarian and vegan options. There are recipes for everyone! Each fully detailed recipes brings you back in time to the Outlander world and the best part of it all is that you can bring the Outlander world into your own kitchen with this book. Whether you're good in the kitchen or not, Theresa does a terrific job of explaining how to recreate her recipes. So fear not, she guides you every step of the way. Each of her books has a great introduction which describes the ingredients she uses and how you can recreate the same in your own kitchen. Don't skip out on reading her introduction, Diana's prologue and at the end of the book "The Diet and Cookery of Eighteen Century Highlanders". I thoroughly enjoyed reading this part as it was filled with historical details and information.I highly recommend this book and let's face it, even if you're not a cook, you need this book just to look at the information that comes along with each recipe, the pictures and all the historical details.

    As a huge fan of Outlander, being able to dive into the world a little bit deeper through exploring recipes that may be made in the Fraser kitchen made my heart swell. So many of the included recipes are comfort foods, which is perfect for the quarantine blues. I have bookmarked quite a few of the recipes I want to try out and I am really looking forward to seeing how they turn out! I may even make a whole theme night of it with my fellow Outlander -loving friend! :)

    This cookbook is as much fun to read as it is a source of recipes. Will I make everything? No. Did I thoroughly enjoy reading every single recipe? Yes. She has a way of putting together flavors and explaining techniques that are really easy to follow. Absolutely recommend!

    I loved the first volume and anxiously waited for this one to come out. It did not disappoint. So many great recipes to try. The descriptions and Outlander (and beyond-love the addition of the Lord John books) are so fun to read. I don't sit and "read" many cookbooks but the day this arrived I found myself sitting for hours perusing recipes and reading the stories that went with them ... as I made my shopping list for items needed for the first recipes to try.

    Loved that there were so many adaptations for dairy-free & vegan recipes! As a lifelong lactose-intolerant person, I really appreciated this. We don’t always get the adaptations in cookbooks that gluten-free people tend to get (& they should! But throw a bone to those of us who can’t do cream & cheese too).

    Can you consider a "cookbook" as part of a reading challenge on Goodreads? Oh, yes! I enjoyed reading it from cover to cover. Being an Outlander junkie, I was pleased to find many of the recipes inspired by the Lord John books. Also, though I am not a vegan nor do I follow a gluten-free, dairy-free, or any popular diet, many of my friends do so I appreciated the adaptable recipes. This book, along with OK 1, the first cookbook, would make a wonderful addition to any cook's library.

    I loved this as much as the first one! There were vegan and vegetarian options this time, and while so much looks labor intensive I would try everything in a heartbeat.

    Another awesome cookbookI have both Outlander Kitchen cookbooks now and have tried many recipes. The ones I have tried are family favourites. I wouldn’t make strawberry jam any other way. And really enjoy the contextual embedding in the Gabaldon novels!
