Tell me your favourite Annabel Karmel recipe – and you could win her new cookbook

April 12, 2011

I’m absolutely thrilled for the lovely Annabel Karmel, whose new TV series Annabel’s Kitchen has just launched. It’s a great idea, encouraging children to cook, and I’m sure it will be a huge success.

To celebrate the launch I’m giving you the chance to win one of five copies of the book (£12.99, Ebury Press) that accompanies the series.

All you have to do to tell me which Annabel Karmel recipe is your favourite (HINT: if you don’t have any of her cookbooks already, have a look at her website).

Leave your answer below, and the winners will be chosen next Tuesday. Usual competition rules apply. Good luck!

  • Patricia McHugh April 14, 2011 at 9:58 am

    It’s got to be your mild beef curry from the superfoods book. When I was a nanny it was always a special Friday dinner for my charges and used as the occasional hangover cure for their dad! I have my own daughter now and both her and my husband love it 🙂 x

  • Pants With Names April 13, 2011 at 10:58 pm

    Was actually going to write a post saying that I LOVE Annabel’s best ever banana bread recipe. Always genius, always lovely and so good with extra cream cheese and jam on too. In fact, I’m just going to go and polish off my last slice now :-))

  • Bumbling April 13, 2011 at 8:08 pm

    Moo refused to eat any of the weaning foods I cooked, preferring anything that came with a label on *sigh*

    But now she’s all grown up (2!), we are more than a little partial to Annabel’s fairy cake recipe 🙂

  • Morag Thomson April 13, 2011 at 7:44 pm

    My baby and toddlers favourites are California Chicken and the Braised Beef with carrot, parsnip and potato. However I think they just love them because I love them so much as we eat them all the time

  • Michael April 13, 2011 at 7:23 pm

    My toddler’s favourites are Lovely Lentils, Beef Stew and Tasty Fish. Although there’s rarely been a flop from our book

  • Kara Guppy April 13, 2011 at 7:11 pm

    It’s got to be the Butternut Squash Risotto. It introduced us to that lovely vegetable that we now eat on a regular basis!

  • Chris at Thinly Spread April 13, 2011 at 7:02 pm

    Mini Muffin Pizzas for us…and Blueberry Pancakes…and Corn Quesadilla…Oh, I’m VERY hungry now!

  • Emma Button April 13, 2011 at 6:39 pm

    I loved Annabel’s weaning recipes. My favourite was one I found in a Rachels Organic booklet called “sweetcorn chowder” which worked so well for us. I made it in great volume and froze small portions of it.

  • Carolina Johnson April 12, 2011 at 9:46 am

    Love “Blueberry pancakes” and a “Fish Pie”.
