Organised by seasons, this is a must-have collection of recipes that will become favourite staples in every household. Covering breakfasts, lunches, nibbles, starters, main meals and desserts there's inspiration for everyone; and Nadia's half Kiwi/half Malaysian heritage means that her food style is modern Kiwi with Asian and Mediterranean influences. A few examples are: Mint and Caper Lamb, Roast Tomato, Asparagus, Feta and Butterbeans; Lime Coconut Bombes with Raspberry Sauce; Pear, Date, Rocket, Blue Cheese and Walnut Salad; Chocolate Panna Cotta with Plum Sorbet; Potato Top Guinness Pie with Savoy Cabbage, Bacon and Croutons; Cranberry Coconut Cake and much more! Nadia's training as a dietitian and nutritionist is evident throughout the book with the recipes being well thought out and balanced, her excellent tips and header notes and her philosophy of how to eat clearly outlined in the introduction. With great attention to detail, Nadia has delivered a thorough, carefully thought-out cookbook. Her delight in cooking and eating is plain to see and the beautiful photography by Kieran Scott and styling by Tamara West adds up to a stunner of a cookbook!
