Home Made Winterby Yvette van Boven
“Because I’m often headstrong, I’ve sometimes interpreted classic recipes completely in my own way, and I hope you won’t mind. Because I’m often impatient, I’ve sometimes drawn the recipes because it’s faster, and because at times, probably unnecessarily, I worry that you don’t think in the same realm as I do, I’
“Because I’m often headstrong, I’ve sometimes interpreted classic recipes completely in my own way, and I hope you won’t mind. Because I’m often impatient, I’ve sometimes drawn the recipes because it’s faster, and because at times, probably unnecessarily, I worry that you don’t think in the same realm as I do, I’ve 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.”

I have tons of cookbooks already but still I love this one. I read thru it in one night. As many cookbooks as I have, I thought her choice of recipes was original and presently lovingly. I am going to purchase her other 2 books asap. I consider myself a foodie and avid baker. The author was raised in Ireland, with Dutch family roots and is now living in France. What a joy the books were.
