Welcome to my blog! I’m Alison, and I was inspired by Lorraine Pascale to become a cooking fanatic. In 2012, I decided to cook all the recipes from “Home Cooking Made Easy.” This blog tells the story of my spiritual journey – from my conversion one autumn evening whilst watching Lorraine make French Pain d’epi, through the sanctifying trials of slow-roast pork, to my eventual completion of the 100 recipes in a year and the eternal rest which followed. Look through the archives to find the 2012 recipes, and plenty of others too! Nobody decided to pick up the film rights to my year of blogging and cooking, but undeterred I have continued to blog about my everyday cooking.
