This duck with blackberry relish dish is my entry into the SIMPLE AND IN SEASON September blogging event over at Ren Behan’s Fabulicious Food. For this entry, I decided to rifle through my extensive collection of cookbooks for inspiration. I came across one particular book that I have not used for a while. But, I just knew I would find a recipe in it that would be a perfect for this challenge. The book is “Simply British”, it’s author SYBIL KAPOOR.
Why I love Sybil’s book is that she is such a brilliant and inspirational writer plus she was head chef at a restaturant which is run by a chef I greatly admire and that is Sally Clarke of Clarke’s restaurant.
Looking for inspiration, it surprised me how I have obviously been influenced over the years by the relatively few British women chefs there are. I hadn’t consciously made the choice to favour these great women. Looking through my cookbook collection though, there are a number of what I consider to be great female cooks….Claudia Roden,Marguerite Patten, Alice Waters, Stephanie Alexander and Donna Hay.
