What’s better than having an ever growing collection of cook books? Why, a subscription to Jamie magazine of course! Elinor, from Beach Hut Cook, describes why it’s the perfect accompaniment to her burgeoning cook book collection.
I have over 350 cookery books - I am not going to lie but I am somewhat of a cookery book addict. Every birthday, Christmas or Mothers Day my family buys me a cookery book. I can never get enough. So when I got the opportunity to receive a year’s subscription of the Jamie magazine, I was beyond happy.
Cookbooks for me are not just a list of ingredients and a method. They are more than that. They capture a moment, an inner warmth suggesting that something wonderful will be created and everyone will be happy and sated. Jamie magazine captures that moment and provides a vast array of recipes, like a cookery book in its own right. The beauty of it being a magazine is that the recipes are seasonal and relevant. You can head out to the shops straightaway and buy what you need and get on with cooking it.
I know a lot of work goes into producing the Jamie magazine as I follow a lot of the stylists, photographers and editors on Instagram. Another one of my addictions. I am an Instagram addict. I see professionals catalogue and document their work on Instagram so I feel that I know them, I feel as if I understand the enormity of their craft which shines through in this magazine.
I loved the cocktail section in one of the recent editions, which focused on a well-loved old favourite, Vermouth, which is having somewhat of a resurgence at the moment. As a frequent cocktail maker myself at our beach hut, I can vouch that these recipes are good. Very good. Who wouldn’t want to a Classic Wet Martini for friends coming round for pre-dinner drinks or fabulously simple Martini and Tonic which makes the perfect end to a beach hut day?
