Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“Because Im often headstrong, Ive sometimes interpreted classic recipes completely in my own way, and I hope you wont mind. Because Im often impatient, Ive sometimes drawn the recipes because its faster, and because at times, probably unnecessarily, I worry that you dont think in the same realm as I do, Ive also added memories and photos so you get a sense of what I mean. Just like a formally decorated table, or a beautifully arranged plate, I believe that a cookbook should exude a certain spirit that I think you should be in when you get in the mood to get going in the kitchen.”

--from the Introduction

HOME MADE blew readers away with its stunning package, delicious recipes, beautiful photos, step-by-step instruction, and Yvette van Bovens own hand-drawn artwork throughout the book. Van Bovens passion for great food and good humor could be felt on every page in the book. Now, in the follow-up HOME MADE WINTER, van Bovens heartfelt work is presented again, this time with recipes intended for the winter season. Inspired by her childhood in Ireland and her frequent sojourns in France, she has created a collection of recipes that will warm your heart. Chapters include Breakfast, Brunch and Lunch; Pies and Sweet Things for Tea Time; Beverages; To Start; and Dessert. She focuses on simple recipes for classic dishes such as apple cider, BBQ pulled pork, ricotta cheesecake, and more. Step-by-step, she explains how to make butter, beef sausage, and baileys. She also features her favorite winter holiday recipes. This book is sure to become the next must-have for home cooks.
