Review of Outlander Kitchen 2: To The New World and Back Again & Giveaway   137 comments

 

We were given the chance to review this book by Theresa and she also sent us an additional copy to do a giveaway. Thank you Theresa! 

If you have the first Outlander Kitchen book, this is the second one, it comes out on June 2nd. 

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.
