Get PREPPED! for FREE!


We've teamed up with the lovely Vanessa Kimbell and have one coveted copy of her fantastic new recipe book PREPPED! to give away.

Just leave a comment here on the Blog before 24 June to be in with a chance of winning!

Five things that make PREPPED! a "kitchen life saver" (as quoted by Michelin starred chef Jason Atherton).

  • The food is delicious and simple
  • The flavours are complex and sophisticated
  • It's written and tested by real people for real life
  • It means you can get out of the kitchen and enjoy the fun with everyone else 
  • Keeps washing up and clearing down to a minimum
We've been lucky enough to have posted one of Vanessa's fabulous recipes here on the Blog, Star Anise & Orange Bread Pudding, and can't wait to try out more of her delicious dishes. 

Three more things you might like to know...
  • PREPPED! is printed in the UK - an unusual feat in itself
  • Vanessa gave herself 12-months to write a recipe book - and held the first copy of PREPPED! almost exactly one year on from the day she started
  • Since discovering Cooking Gorgeous aprons, Vanessa will wear nothing else (not sure that's come out right but you know what we mean!)



Good luck!

    I wear nothing else but my Cooking Gorgeous apron when I am in the kitchen (that also did not come out right, but you know what I mean). So to win the book as well would mean I would be "Prepped & Cooking Gorgeous" and isn't that what everyone would like a little bit of?? x

  7. By any standards I'm not the hottest cook in France but, thanks to the pangrabs, I don't get burnt when I sous chef. Perhaps this recipe book will persuade my friends to accept invitations to my meals.
    Love the Blog by the way.

  9. Sounds like just the job for when my head chef (read culinary genius partner) heads off to foreign parts leaving his culinary challenged other half (me) to attempt to feed the family. At least thanks to Cooking Gorgeous I now look the part.

  10. Love everything you do at Cooking Gorgeous, its so refreshing to see beautiful things, beautifully made that actually work. If I don't win I think I am going to have to go and buy the book anyway, so I have more excuses to wear my apron and pretend I can cook.

  12. PREPPED! looks great, but I might need waterproof kindle auto-speak version in my kitchen, if I win that is...fingers crossed!

  13. Have you considered a range of Man pinnys for mechanics? Much more fetching than our current range of jump suits! A possible photo-shoot opportunity??
