Why we love?
For someone who loves to eat, cooking is not necessarily my forté. This book right here was a game changer for me. Sometimes cookbooks can be a little intimidating... what do all those ingredients mean? Three hours preparation time? No can do. This approachable cooking manual keeps in mind the *haaaangry* & time-poor who need concise instructions at the end of a long day.
For cooks of all sorts, beginners to advanced, you will appreciate the achievable ethos and beautiful imagery in this book! Bravo!
Family food is generous, unfussy and demonstrates love and care. No matter what busyness the day brings, the act of setting the table and enjoying a simple meal together is comforting and ever-reassuring.
Eating simply and seasonally is at the core of Julia Busuttil Nishimura's recipes. Whether it's a cooling coffee granita to start a summer's day or the comfort of a hearty baked macaroni in darkest winter, this is the kind of food you will want to share with your loved ones throughout the year.
The dishes in this book are brought to life by great ingredients. There are plenty of quick recipes and some that require more time to bubble away on the stove. Overall, they are linked by taste and pleasure, and making the most of seasonal produce. This is generous, delicious food that the whole family will love, all year round.
