Blogging assignment: COOK IT - VLOG/BLOG IT - WIN IT (UK bloggers)

Please tell us about the product or company you would like the blogger’s help with?

My Kind of Food is a very personal book from John, full of the food that he loves to cook and eat, recipes that he makes away from the cameras and professional kitchens.
In John’s words:

‘My world as I know it started with my Nanna’s roasting tin, a chicken and a wooden spoon. The food she cooked was always simple, but delicious. Her cauliflower cheese was awesome, her caramel slice wonderful and I am still searching for a recipe to make her apple tea cake.

So life started simply for me. Since then I have cooked in professional kitchens, run my own restaurants and done a lot of telly. Some of you may have eaten in my restaurants, some may have seen me on MasterChef, but I guess that not many of you know what I really cook for myself and my friends and family.

This book is about how I cook at home and the chapters reflect me and the things in life I love – how I eat and how I cook. At its heart, it is simple, but it’s definitely also influenced by my years in restaurant kitchens. I don’t tend to define my food by type or style. I guess you could say that these are my real favourites – a behind-the-scenes look at my own kitchen!’
