I've been looking for summer reads to start off my summer (soon I won't even have any left). I've been so used to fictional books and I loved them! Just I haven't been really able to find a good story and nonfictional just isn't my thing (unless it's ww2. yes. pretty weird). So i decided, why not go and find some good cookbooks to read because obviously, I LOVE FOOD. Can't you tell by how I capitalized everything in the word? I found out about this amazing website that gives bloggers a chance to get free books, in exchange for an honest review which totally made my day. I mean free books for a book lover? YES. Yes. and Yes. Please. So my review is my first thoughts upon a book called, "The Sprouted Kitchen Bowl and Spoon" by Sara Forte.
So I, unlike many other reviewers have no idea who the author is, after researching about Sara Forte, I found out that she's a food blogger who has already published a book before this one called "The Sprouted Kitchen". So why did I choose this book instead of all the books out there? I would say the cover is what attracted me. Many people, like myself are attracted by a beautiful cover and I don't think I can ever settle for anything less. The pictures taken inside the book are insanely beautiful and has a nice, warm glow feel to the photos.
I am not a huge readers when it comes to food because I want to focus on the main thing, what does it look like? And how do I make it look like that? I mean I instagram everything so maybe that's my fault that I care so much about appearances of food. At first I was a bit hesitant to try some of the recipes because I'm not a huge "green", "organic" foodie. I love anything that's fresh but I cannot go full vegan at all point or low calories, it isn't a priority on my list when choosing food. So needless to say, I was surprised when I saw a lot of recipes that weren't completely vegan like I thought. It is a big plus sign for me but if you are a person who is looking for a full on vegan cook book, maybe skip a few recipes.
Everything is essentially made to fit or to be served on a bowl. Hence the name Forte picked. I like that concept of the whole bowl idea and I think it's cute and clever at the same time. I've skimmed through some recipes but haven't had the time to actually try them out but hopefully, sometime in the future, I will have better time to actually taste them instead of tasting them through the beautiful pictures.
I am excited to read more and maybe taste one of the recipes soon.
