Overview

Deceptively Simple Dishes for a Deliciously Stylish Life

Inspired by her British grandma ("the original Yummy Mummy" and still the epitome of chic at ninety-two years old), Marina Delio has found her groove as a modern Yummy Mummy: a loving and devoted mom who values fitness and health and maintains style and grace, even with small children at home. Offering busy moms easy, irresistible recipes for every meal of the day and every season of the year, The Yummy Mummy Kitchen shows how healthy meals with small touches like sparkling cranberries and flower garnishes can make us all feel a little more glamorous amid the chaos of raising a family.

Focusing on quality, seasonal, local ingredients, Marina shares mostly meatless, produce-rich recipes that are sophisticated without being complicated. They're accompanied by life tips and timeless wisdom about the importance of establishing regular family dinners and traditions, teaching kids to respect and appreciate real food (she begs of you, do not hide pureed vegetables in their meals!), and engaging your children in the cooking process. Marina offers practical, time-saving hints for preparing make-ahead meals, stocking the freezer and the pantry for impromptu entertaining, and menu planning. She even shares the secrets behind fish that doesn't taste fishy, why every Yummy Mummy should keep a stash of chocolate in her nightstand, and where to find the most dazzling, classic red lipstick.

From cozy family breakfasts to playroom tea parties, moms' nights to date nights, you'll soon experience the joy and tremendous satisfaction of creating beautiful homemade meals and lasting memories that will nourish and comfort everyone you cherish most.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The first sentence of this book by Yummy Mummy Kitchen blogger Delio—“I’m not the Yummy Mummy”—is reassuring. This isn’t about an author extolling her own supermom-as-superchef credentials. The title of her blog and book, she explains, are inspired by her British grandmother, whom she calls “the original Yummy Mummy.” And the book is inspiring, not intimidating. It’s filled with terrific and accessible (mostly meatless, with a few exceptions) recipes, along with real-mom advice from the author (who admits that pouring a small glass of wine makes dinner prep more fun, and that her standing Friday afternoon play date/cocktail hour with girlfriends helps her to be a better mom) and her grandmother. The recipes range from snacks (such as kid-friendly Cheesy Broccoli Brown Rice Poppers and Grape and Rosemary Flatbread) to entrees (such as Grilled Eggplant Stuffed with Spinach and Cheese, Rice Noodles Primavera with Tofu and Peanut Sauce, Halibut with Blood Orange Salsa, and Crispy Baked “Fish and Chips”). There are also breakfast foods, like Apple Oat Muffins, and simple desserts, like Salted Brown Butter Cookies and Apricot Almond Crumble Bars. It’s true that the dreamy color photos make the book feel aspirational, but the easy recipes and helpful features (like seasonal weekly menus, complete with shopping lists) make this volume a useful resource for busy families. (Apr.)
Kiwi Magazine
“I have never used the word ‘effortless’ in conjunction with cooking but these family-friendly recipes have raised the (cookie) bar. From old favorites with a new twist to dishes that conjure images of international adventures, Delio makes it all attainable.”
Parents.com
The Yummy Mummy Kitchen will absolutely make you hungry. The elegant photos are luscious—some of the most beautiful I’ve seen. The recipes are geared to families, but they’re not just for kids. Marina cooks for highly varied and sophisticated palettes.”

805 Living Magazine
“The book is a cheerful collection of 100 of Delio’s recipes - she describes them as ‘effortless’ - beautifully presented with color photographs…There’s also a sprinkling of ‘Life Tips’ on topics such as how to deal with a child with a picky appetite and the best after-school snacks.”
An Edible Mosaic Blog
“Marina has mastered the art of cooking with a few top-quality ingredients in such a way that when combined, their simplicity transforms into something complex and unexpected. Uncomplicated and unpretentious… perfect for both a weeknight meal with the family, as well as a formal dinner for a special occasion.”
