JUST LIKE MUM USED TO MAKE:
beetroot hummus by Penni Lamprey, Greek- style lamb by Ilka Howell, Bonnie Tuttle’s thick, warming and spicy Mexican bean soup and Leonie Crosse’s southern jerk chicken, a dish she first tasted at Lake Texoma in Texas, which Leonie says is so authentic the only thing missing is the tobacco spit.
Finishing with delicious-sounding desserts, the recipes all come with nutritional panels and information on how to interpret what’s healthy and vegetarian, gluten- free, nut- free, slow- cooked and freezer indicators.
Many have suggested wine matches by Chris Richardson from Observatory Hill vineyard and there are useful cook’s notes, tips and tricks and a food glossary.
So, whatever else you’re doing for Mother’s Day, you could make her future in the kitchen more enjoyable and hassle- free with a gift of this book, knowing you’re also doing your bit to assist those less fortunate families in our community.
