Images and recipes from I’m Just Here For Dessert by Caroline Khoo (Murdoch Books RRP $39.99)
Fill three-quarters of a champagne flute or small glass with pink lemonade. Top up with your favourite champagne (or non-alcoholic sparkling drink) then garnish each glass with 4 fresh raspberries. If planning a party, this is a really easy cocktail to prepare ahead of time. Just add the champagne and raspberries right as your guests arrive. (Makes one 125 ml/4 fl oz drink)
Sitting on my kitchen table at the moment are two books that will make your ( your mums, your sister, your creative significant others) day.
I am so excited to have “I am Just Here for Dessert” by Caroline Khoo of Nectar and Stone. This is a book you will want to hold and admire – the pages are “framed” in gold, the food creations are like works of art – a great coffee table book for the non cook, a fabulous resource for those who do cook. And if pink is your favourite colour – you will adore this book! Check it out here: https://www.murdochbooks.com.au/browse/books/desserts/Im-Just-Here-for-Dessert-Caroline-Khoo-9781743368824
Just as impressive but for different reasons is Luke Mangan’s “Sharing Plates”. Murdoch Books say: “Whether it’s a lazy weekend brunch, casual supper for friends at the kitchen table, special-occasion lunch, or drinks with nibbles, Luke Mangan has all your options covered for the most delicious sharing plates.” He sure does!

PS – over the next few days I will share a few of the recipes from these two books – I cant wait to start taste testing!
These beautiful roses I picked from my garden last night. They look and smell divine.
