Let’s chat about Bucket List.

Once you’ve got your hands on your copy, or you’ve had a flick through online; this is the place to discuss and share thoughts on the amazing stories that litter the book.

What recipes have you tried and what’s been your favourite? Got your eye on any of the others?

    I want the bucket list book and it’s out of stock, in fact most books are out of stock (cry) any idea if and when they might be available again please?

    I am wanting to try the lemon/raspberry tart, hopefully this week, as it will be the first time having some friends over since COVID hit (just two). Does anyone know if parts of it (all of it) can be made ahead of time? I’m cooking dinner after work on Friday and was hoping to make the tart on Wednesday or Thursday.

    So I’m planning on cooking the fresh lasagne from The Bucket List, but gonna switch out the milk and cheeses for dairy free, will that work? First time cooking in a long and lactose intolerant cheers

    Just went browsing through the recipes and saw the Koenigsberger Kloepse… my grandma always made (she was born and raised in that area) so had a good giggle and certainly will try and follow your recipe as in our house it always was more of a “can’t be bothered to make a fuzz now” dish … but love the spins you take on it and the way it is more celebratory by putting in more time/efforts

    made the Koingsberger Klopse earlier this week. Spouse and I both found it quite tasty, and nice with winter here in the upper midwest of U.S.

    Will be adding the book to meal planning in coming weeks as there are several other recipes in it we want to try.

    Love it! The concept is fantastic and reading the stories behind the dish you feel privileged to share in food that has such a strong connection to other people. This is everything I love about good food.

    As a graphic designer I have to say I love the design of the book (maybe more than most of the recipes). Love the little check boxes!

    Thank you Sorted – what an amazing book! Got me and my dad cooking various recipes last night and was a lot of fun!

    My only query with the website viewing of the recipes is that there is no ‘save’ button – maybe an addition of a saved recipes library would be useful? Just a tip – keep up the good work though and Happy New Year – here’s to more food adventures!

    The book is an absolute treat. Reading the stories that accompany the recipes is a heartwarming experience, that I thought only food itself could incite. I want to try as many recipes as I can. And with the New Year right around the corner, I finally have a list of resolutions I am motivated and excited to stick to, instead of the “1. Work out; 2. Read more books; 3. New Year – new me” list, that usually ends up in the bin.
    Also, the format of the book is great. Love the fact, that the stories come first, with the recipes themselves coming in later. Gives a very personal, warm feel to the book itself.
    All in all – a fantastic book, amazingly well done!

      Could you please tell me how to add a profile picture? I’m struggling with how to do it and noticed you have managed. Thanks!

      • Dollface

        Hey there,
        I went on to check how I did it and can’t find it :O As far as I can remember, it was around the same stage as when writing a description for the profile, but now I can’t find it. Perhaps they’re updating the website…
        I’ll check the site regularly and let you know if I find it!

    Really excited to get cooking and check everything off! The only thing I’m missing is an index or a “table of content” of some sorts. On the other hand, it is not a big fat book so you won’t be getting hangry while looking for the recipe you are about to cook :).

    Love the story and recipe split.

  11. I enjoyed the bucket list book, I liked the look of at least 5 recipes that I would like to try then maybe adapt.
    Keep up the good work guys
    Will you be doing a fine dining styled book soon? Would love for you guys to try restaurants/Gastro pubs outside London!

      I find that if a book has only 5 nice recipes, it’s not worth it. I bought Chetna Makan’s book of healthy Indian food. I’ve made already more than 5 of them and I want to make each and every one. And it’s cheaper.
      If I could get the Desserts in duves, that’d be awesome.

    Question! Will a 7g sachet of dried ‘easy bake’ yeast have the same effect as the 15g of fresh yeast for peppadew focaccia?

    • Sorted

      7g sachet of dried is the most standard measure for yeast… fresh makes sense to weigh more. So almost certainly fine. However, the best approach is to adjust the proving times… rather than follow a time… wait until it doubles. That might be a little more or less than the time stated!

  13. SammiJMB

    I thought it was good – there’s a few recipes in it I want to try for definite. What was the creative decision behind splitting the book in two parts, rather than putting the stories alongside the relevant recipe?

    • Sorted

      We wanted a bit of a change of scene to the previous ones we’ve made. It was a ‘let’s push our creative boundaries’ a little. The stories were James’s brilliant idea. He really wanted it to be something where you’d totally get immersed in the stories before getting technical with the recipes and we brainstormed how to focus more on the people behind the food. Also we thought it’s a great one to have out on the coffee table so if anyone’s round they can flick through it and get immersed asap. What did you think of the design?

      • SammiJMB

        That makes sense. I thought it was good to get to learn more about the reason for the recipe choice – personally, though, I had to stop myself flicking straight to the relevant recipe. By the time I’d gotten to the recipes I’d forgotten the specifics of the stories. That’s just how my brain and memory work, however, and I’m sure there’s plenty of others out there who really enjoyed the layout. It’s always a good idea to try new things.

    Received my copy, book looks really nice. Immediately wanted to try the fried ravioli so that’s at the top of the list which is what I am currently shopping for ingredients wise today:D

  15. Ropalina

    I-LOVE-IT! Maybe I’m biased because my recipe is in there, but I really like it! The boxes to tick for every recipe you make are a great idea! Also, I appreciate the stories behind each recipe… I was expecting this book to be filled with croc en bouche (I can’t spell it) and very complex “ultimate” dishes… But instead the book is full of heart! 🙂 Well done everyone! Also, a great Christmas gift!
