Chef and busy working mum Karen Martini loves spending time in her home kitchen - making quick and healthy lunches, creating elaborate feasts for special occasions, or simply experimenting with different ingredients. In Home, she shares her absolute favourite flavour-packed dishes to put on the table for family and friends. There are solutions to mid-week dinner dilemmas, such as pan-fried salmon with zucchini, mint and chilli, as well as knockout dishes for that special dinner party, such as red-wine braised beef cheeks with celeriac and parsnip puree. Super-quick breakfasts include corn and cheddar fritters with avocado and cumin salt, and there are heaps of fresh and healthy salads, such as soba noodles with bean sprouts, ginger and sesame. You will find nourishing wintery soups and vibrant summer ones; creative pasta and rice dishes that will keep the whole family happy; and delicious sweet treats, from simple biscuits to Karen's all-time favourite pavlova recipe. Home also features a gorgeous Christmas chapter, with eleven inspiring and achievable recipes for any festive occasion.
This book is all about cooking and eating well. Original, fresh and bursting with flavour and colour, the recipes in Home will inspire you to cook up delicious and memorable food for yourself and your loved ones, from the simple and nourishing to the detailed and indulgent.
