MasterChef is most definitely the ultimate TV cooking show competition. Whether you’re an amateur, professional or celebrity, MasterChef really does showcase the absolute best cooking talent. In a newly published cookbook titled the MasterChef Kitchen Bible published by DK you can experiment with fantastic dishes from the show and learn for yourself the all in important kitchen skills of professional chefs.
I really love my food and always have, but I’ve not always been able to cook. Since having my children I’ve taught myself to cook by reading lots of cookbooks, practising and watching countless cooking TV shows. I was delighted when DK asked me to review the new MasterChef Kitchen Bible from the cooking show I’ve been watching for years.
The MasterChef Kitchen Bible is divided into sections, Modern Classic Recipes, MasterChef Recipes from the contestants and MasterChef Know-how. For the purposes of the review I wanted to make something the whole family would enjoy, so I opted for the Carrot Cake recipe which is my husband’s favourite cake. The cake batter was very wet, which meant one of two things, it was either going to produce a super moist cake (I hoped) or not rise (I hoped not). The cake rose beautifully and was deliciously moist too. The spice mix of cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and allspice certainly gave the carrot cake bags of flavour. Although, I think I made the cream cheese icing a little too runny, it tasted heavenly. Everyone really enjoyed the cake, in fact my husband said it was the best carrot cake I’d ever made, high praise indeed.
I’ve book marked several recipes to try out from the Modern Classics section including the Boeuf bourguignon, Chicken tikka masala and Chocolate fondants. Whilst from the MasterChef Recipes section I’d like to make Tim Kinnaird’s Exploding lemon macarons and Alix Carwood’s Thai beef massaman curry with jasmine rice.
