My Family Table
This is probably my favourite cookbook to date! It is just so simply superb! My Family Table isn't a designated sugar, gluten or dairy free cookbook, and yet it includes elements of all of these if you wish. All of the recipes consist of whole and fresh ingredients which are available anywhere. Health radiates throughout this beautifully bound book and I feel so content among its pages. What I loved most was the way you could easily adapt and alter the recipes by swapping, using less and even removing certain ingredients to make the dish suit you and your lifestyle; and most importantly, what is already in the fridge, freezer or pantry. Ozich shares thoughts and tips throughout the book, suggesting what to swap what with and why she loves each dish so much. I have been sugar free now for over a month and almost all of the recipes included are sugar free, using natural sweeteners; and mostly focusing on the simplicity of natural sweetness. The recipes all use minimal ingredients and I found myself remembering them effortlessly, and beginning to use many as my staples, especially the breakfast dishes. You can see below a few of my interpretations of the beautiful dishes; which certainly tasted a lot better than I managed to make them look. I have genuinely enjoyed cooking and creating so much more thanks to his book and experimenting with foods and flavours is something that I am coming to readily enjoy and do often.
