INBOX-Your say We love to hear from you!
NEW HOME, NEW READ
I had to write in and tell the team how much I appreciate and thoroughly enjoy reading the magazine every month. I recently moved to Dubai from South Africa, and as everyone already knows, relocating to a new country is quite an issue when you're leaving your favorite things behind, your local foodie magazine included. I threw myself right in when I moved here, by joining the Food Club and enjoy all the masterclasses that I get to visit as a member. I love the innovative recipes every month and can't wait to try some of the dishes in this month's issue. My favourite way to unwind is by buying your monthly issue, and sitting down with a cuppa while the kids are at school. My me-time is bliss!
This month's issue was very special, as you covered all aspects of Valentine's Day, from recipes to gifts. I really liked the gift idea section (Gifts of love, February 2013) as it was a compilation of gifts that food lovers would enjoy. Every month I try out the recipes from the magazine, and my family absolutly loves them. Keep up the good work BBC Good Food ME. I'll be waiting for the next edition.
LOVE FOR FOOD
I love the cover of this month's magazine, and what I love even more is how easy it was to make the Sweetheart chocolate and hazelnut sandwich recipe (Love is...good food! February 2013). It was a more refined and delicious version of the simple French toast, which I usually make with chocolate hazelnut spread anyway. I tried it as soon as I got a copy of the magazine, and then made it again on Valentine's Day for my husband. My husband and I love cooking, and he loves to experiment with Chinese cuisine. He found great inspiration in the Chinese recipe feature (Simple, satisfying Chinese, February 2013), as he learnt a lot on flavouring Chinese dishes. He has yet to pick up the five-spice powder to cook the Five-spice beef and sugar snap noodles. Thank you BBC Good Food ME for getting us on track for Valentine's Day. Looking forward to more appetising reads in the upcoming months. Tehzeeb Huda Ahmed
VALENTINE'S DAY SORTED
I picked up this month's issue as I desperately needed to find a romantic restaurant to take my wife to. I always rely on BBC Good Food ME, as I know there will be some restaurant promotion or the other (Flavours of the month, February 2013). After reading the Date-night dining options in the Tried and Tasted section, I decided I would treat my wife to dinner on Bateaux Dubai. We visited the cruise before for high tea, and absolutely loved it. The glass boat, with views of the creek and the beautiful sky - it was just amazing! I also picked up the Le Creuset stoneware berry pot, which I found in the gift guide (Gifts of Love, February 2013), as my wife loves making jams and preserves. We had a great Valentine's Day this year, and it was all thanks to you, BBC Good Food ME! Chris D'mello
