Publisher Comments:

How do you make cheese from pantry staples? Or create an oven smoker from scratch in just two minutes? Or make ice cream without a machine? In Home Made, Yvette van Boven shows you how, complete with an irreverent voice, step-by-step photos and illustrations, and a gorgeous photo alongside every recipe. While her recipes are rooted in a natural, from-scratch cooking philosophy, van Boven is never preachy (she doesnand#8217;t use the word and#8220;organicand#8221;); she believes that this way of cooking is fun and that the dishes simply taste better. Chapters include Preserving Vegetables, Pre-Dinner Drinks, Chocolate and Cookies, After a Night Out, Ice-Cream-You-Scream, Donand#8217;t Forget the Dog!, and more. Each chapter starts with a basic dish that you can make yourself, but usually donand#8217;t because you think itand#8217;s too complicated (think again!), and includes variationsand#8212;basic bread becomes focaccia with olives and rosemary, or red cherry and thyme bread. This book will inspire you to make every dish at home.

--from the Introduction

HOME MADE blew readers away with its stunning package, delicious recipes, beautiful photos, step-by-step instruction, and Yvette van Bovenand#8217;s own hand-drawn artwork throughout the book. Van Bovenand#8217;s 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 Bovenand#8217;s heartfelt work is presented again, this time with recipes intended for the winter season.
