Shazzameena is a blogger that visited this month’s book club and shared with us her experiences of cooking her way through Marcella Hazan’s Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking. Filled with tales of her challenge and a few photo’s along the way here is just one of her worthy contributions to our conversation for The Cookbook Guru.

At my table

A rare treat for those of you who have often wished I included photos in my posts. Please don’t expect them normally. Photography is the last thing I am thinking of when bringing meals to my table. On this occasion – my friend’s 40th Birthday Dinner Party – the Birthday Girl was quite happily snapping away. I have included the photos below.
