Yesterday I picked up a copy of “My Kitchen, Casual Home Cooking” by Pete Evans and it is a fabulous cookbook. I have Pete’s “My Table” and a number of the recipes have become family favourites – butter chicken and meatballs to name a few.
This latest cookbook is full of recipes I can’t wait to try… Mango & Rosewater Mascarpone Pastries, Pear, Apple & Cinnamon Pan Souffle, Bo Sam which is pork belly wrapped in lettuce served with a delicious korean sauce and the bucatini with chilli and pancetta.
The book was photographed by Katie Quinn Davies of the What Katie Ate blog. I love Katie’s blog and haved loved her food styling and photography for a long time so as you can imagine the pictures are gorgeous.
I also love the food styling which was done by David Morgan, to quote Pete Evans himself he says in the back of the book “I love how you can make the simplest dishes look absolutely mouth watering.”
The book design is also beautiful by Reuben Crossman.
They are selling the book at Big W for $24 at the moment which is where I picked up my copy.
