A Homegrown Table
PUBLISHED by New Holland Publishers
ISBN: 978 1742574714
This is delightful, smiley and popular winner of Australian MasterChef 2013, Emma Dean’s first cookbook, and her personality, and love of using the freshest ingredients, shines through on every page.
Many of the recipes, such as Wild Green Salad and Jerusalem Artichoke Soup with Nutmeg, show her hobby-farm origins – her family had a farm in Bendigo, where she learnt the joy of growing vegetables from seed at a very early age.
She also has great enthusiasm for urban foraging, and dishes such as A Foraged Plate and Double Tea-smoked Salmon with Pickled Cucumber, Sea Herbs and Crème Fraîche, see classic, as well as more adventurous ingredients, combined happily in one dish. Luckily the ingredients used in most of the recipes are freely available outside of Australia.
This book will take you from breakfast through to tea time and dessert treats, with main meals embracing snout to tail cooking with scrumptious sounding recipes for oxtail, pork and beef cheeks, quail and rabbit, and several delicious sounding fish and vegetable dishes.
Fun, warm and homegrown, this book will be a happy addition to your cookbook collection, or to your coffee table.
