Last Night, I cooked a "Chilli con Carne" from the book: RevoluÁ„o na Cozinha". I loved the recipes and I'm very happy with the book!
I'm from Brazil and I see your show in GNT Channel.

Re: Welcome everyone, start the new year cooking!

I am cooking for my Class for the New Year. They had to watch the 'Great Britain' series as homework and vote for the recipe they wanted to try. It's part of our migration unit on multi-cultural britain. Thankfully no parents commented on your mobile pub name !!! A close call. Wish me luck!!!

Re: Welcome everyone, start the new year cooking!

I'm fairly new here.  Thanks so much Jamie for sharing your cooking with us.  Thanks to you I'm able to find recipes and ways of cooking that take me back to childhood and my Grandmother.  Roasted veg....BRILLIANT!!! flavor. Never would have thought of adding balsamic vinegar. One question...my gran used to make a breakfast that had braised kidney as a part of it.  I was quite little but I remember that I really liked it but have not be able to reproduce an "edible" (yummy) breakfast like her's. Any ideas??

Re: Welcome everyone, start the new year cooking!

I'd love if someone could help me im 13 years old from Iceland and dont eat vegetables or fruits exept potatos, oranges and lime and lemon. I dont know why, I wanna but I was just born this way and I've never eat them I have never eaten them not even when I was little. I wanna eat healthy but I dont know any healthy meals without vegetables or fruits and the other members of my family wanna eat them but they cant because then I wont eat. I dont know how to make something healthy !
                                        I wanna eat healthy, can you help me ?

                                                    Love IceBekkz

Re: Welcome everyone, start the new year cooking!

IceBekkz , dont think its 'just how you were born ' as your tastes change as you get older , you are very young ( best you remove your age and personal details from your post as this is a very open forum ).
You might find that you start to enjoy vegetables or other fruits .It might just depend how they are cooked.

When I met my husband he basically ate.. meat and gravy ,cheese , fiish ,  potatoes , cakes and biscuits , would reluctantly drink orange juice , ate high bran breakfast cerals and  thought salad was for rabbits and hever ate any fruit.
Now he will eat and enjoy any vegetabeof fruit that he finds ( except bananas ) , loves salad and seaks out different fruit juices. He really enjoys everything .
So just keep trying things in different places or cooked in different ways .

As for the rest of your family not eating them because you wont , I am sorry but this just seems to be something convinient for them to say !
I am a vegetarian and so I dont eat meat, this is because I realy dislike the taste and texture of it , I have tried plenty of different meats over the years.
It does not stop me cooking meat for my family or from them eating meat in frount of me.

So my advice it , try cooking the vegetables in different ways, maybe add some to a pasta sauce , maybe make a soup with some in. Maybe just make some chutney or ketchup . but most of all , keep trying little bits here and there over the years you might just ( as my husband found ) learn to really enjoy the fruits and vegetables and miss them if they are not part of your meals.
