Welcome!

Welcome to I Heart Cooking Clubs. A spin-off of the popular TFF (Tyler Florence Fridays) cooking club, presently featuring the recipes of Yotam Ottolenghi. (Through September 2013) This cooking club aims to grow and change with its members and explore other cooks and books in the future. A new chef/cook will be announced every six months.


You Choose the Recipes!

In the interest of freedom of choice, we have organized this cooking club on themes. How you interpret the theme is up to you. If you feel that you would like nothing better than a three pound bison burger, with all the fixin's, on a spa day.. nobody will challenge you on it!

Once the theme is announced, feel free to peruse Ottolenghi's recipes from his books or online, to find one that you think suits the theme and your tastes. Have fun with the recipe, change what you like, and link into that week's post.

Sidebar Blogroll

If you would like to be added to the blogroll on the sidebar, please leave your name and a link to your blog in the comments section of this welcome post.

Linking Your Post

At the end of each week's post, you will have a chance to link your post's permalink (not the link to your blog's homepage or front page) with inlinkz, below. The link will allow you to add and crop a thumbnail photo too. Please leave a comment after, each week that you use inlinkz to link your post, just to be sure we don't miss anyone.
Feel free to write the name of your dish next to your name in the Linky field!


What is a permalink?
A permalink is a permanent link to your specific post, not to your blog's front page.

This is a permalink to a post -

http://iheartcookingclubs.blogspot.com/2013/04/shalom-yotam-ottolenghi.html

This is a link to the blog's front page -
http://iheartcookingclubs.blogspot.com/

 
See the difference? Great! Looking forward to your dishes!

Note: You can post any time during the week, new themes will be officially announced on Mondays, but are listed on the sidebar so you can plan ahead.


If you have any questions, leave a comment on this post or email one of the host/administrators listed on the sidebar. 

Welcome to IHCC!!!

I am in. I have her cookbook, one of them. I have not been able to use it enough because I have to go to Tyler and Ellie first. I want to use her recipes though.

While, I am thinking of giving up groups that necessitate a weekly designated recipe, I love ones where I can select my own recipe.

In joining clubs, my goal, is to incorporate them into our meals and not cook extra foods for the camera because it is the weekly food. I love CEiMB, despite the assigned recipe. All Elle's recipes are great.

I did not mean to write a book and feel free to remove this if I went overboard. Just add me to the list. I am on my way to look up recipes. I need a pasta. I know where to find it.

Thanks for doing this.

Sweet and Savory Says it All

girlichef said...

Welcome Sweet & Savory (Chaya)! We're glad to have you on board :)

Kim said...

I'm so excited : ) Please count me in and add Stirring the Pot to the sidebar.

girlichef said...

Hi Kim! So glad you're here :)

Kim said...

Just a comment to share some helpful info on Nigella's cookbooks, just in case anyone is interested in purchasing one of her cookbooks. One of my new favorite things to do is look up "used" cookbooks/books online at Amazon. I got a Paula Deen cookbook for .79 cents, mailed it was $4. It was pretty much brand new, with a tear on one page. (I totally use and abuse my cookbooks, so this didn't bother me at all). Nigella's cookbooks are also available very cheap on Amazon. The used books average about $2-4 dollars and around $3 for shipping. It's really hard to beat that price. I like looking online, but there is nothing like having that cookbook right in front of you!! Sorry to go on, but cheap cookbooks really excite me : )

Diana Bauman said...

I would love to participate. I don't have any of Nigella's cookbooks, though I'm sure I can find something online ;) Feel free to add me to your blogroll..

http://spaininiowa.blogspot.com!

Thanks to girlichef for bringing me on over!

Natashya KitchenPuppies said...

Michelle - wonderful! So happy to have you.

Pam said...

I would like to join, but I'm not sure that I could make it work. I go grocery shopping on the weekend, so if it's announced on a Monday, it'll be too late for me, I've already bought and planned my weeks food.

Suzie said...

I would love to join too. It is a great idea to keep rotating the chefs - I really like the fact that I will be trying out different cookbook authors.
httP://munchandnibble.blogspot.com

Natashya KitchenPuppies said...

Pam - don't worry, we've got your back! The upcoming weeks will be shown on the sidebar, you will always have at least two weeks advance notice. We are every-two-weeks shoppers ourselves.

Natashya KitchenPuppies said...

Suzie, great to have you! I added you to the blogroll.

Sweet and Savory said...

I goofed. The potato kugel was not supposed to be posted here. The chocolate mousse was. Would you remove the kugel, please?

Debs said...

What a fab idea. I've been promising to try out some of Nigella's recipes for ages, now I have a good reason. Count me in for recipes and adding me to the sidebar blogroll too.

Natashya KitchenPuppies said...

Pierce - I'll add you right now, welcome!

Libby said...

I'll participate! I don't have any of Nigella's books, but I'm sure I can find a recipe of hers somewhere to make :) I saw the button on two of my fellow blogger's pages and decided to take a look :) Please add my blog to the side bar :)

highlandsranchfoodie.wordpress.com said...

I'd like to join, I just hope I have time. Do we have to post a recipe each and every Monday a theme is announced? I'm sure I'll be fine, but might miss one here or there. I don't have any of her cookbooks, but will either get one or look for on line recipes.

Thanks for organizing this.
Lea Ann

Natashya KitchenPuppies said...

Hi!
We post the theme on Monday, but you have all week to post. No pressure to do every week.
Food Network online has lots of recipes translated to American measure, and her own site has metric recipes.
Nigella Express seems to be the most popular book to start with, if you are shopping or making your Christmas list.
Great to have you on board!!

ARLENE said...

I'm ordering a Nigella cookbook now so I can participate. I hope I've done this correctly. Will soon see.

Joanna said...

I would love to participate! Any push to get me to try new recipes is great in my book. And I never hesitate to buy new cookbooks, so I'll be running out for some of Nigella's! I'd love it if you added me to your blogroll :)

go ahead and snicker

Karina said...

The respect Rick Bayless has for mexican food is commendable. I am thrilled to share the results of one of his recipes. I will be trying Herb Green Rice with Peas (Arroz Verde).

Julie E said...

I found about about your cooking club through Ms. enPlace. I would love to join in with all of you! What do I need to do?

Natashya KitchenPuppies said...

Julie E - welcome! We will be cooking from Rick Bayless's recipes for the next six months - each week you look for a recipe that suits you and fits the theme. Link your post's permalink to the linky of the week to share your experience with us!
We are mellow, participate whenever you want. The only strict rule is that you have to the recipes of the featured cook - in this case - Rick Bayless. Adaptations are allowed and encouraged!

Jessi Reil de Olvera said...

What a fun challenge! I love discovering new ideas in my pile of cookbooks and Rick Bayless is one of my favorites!

Evelyn Osborn said...

OK I think I may have messed up, I linked a chile recipe but it wasn't from Rick Bayless's Cookbook but I am unable to delete it. I didn't really understand the rules, Please delete it for me and I will regroup and join this after I have read and understood the rules:( This sounds like so much fun. Thanks for understanding and my apologies.

Heather Schmitt-Gonzalez said...

@Evelyn - Hi! We are a chef/cook-based cooking club. We feature a certain chef for 6 months at a time and cook from their recipes (or adapt or inspired by them and their techniques). We only have one real rule, and that is to cook from our chosen chef/cook. We have weekly themes meant to inspire.

We look forward to having you join us!
