This isn't a book for the shelf! This is a book for display ...Not only is it filled with DH's usual mouthwatering yet approachable recipes but the art direction and design of the book makes it so enjoyable to peruse, from the toothy paper stock that it is printed on, to the beautiful landscapes and lifestyle shots which pepper the pages between the effortlessly rustic styled food images.Donna has taken the best from her Mag, and separated them into the four seasons, then into sweet and savoury categories ... just divine.

I had heard very good things about this cookbook and I was not disappointed.

For one thing, it is a huge cookbook with the pages taken from the Donna Hay magazine. The photos are so beautiful that I kept this cookbook on my coffee table just to peruse it for awhile.

But in addition to the beautiful photographs, the recipes are clearly written and contain the fresh ingredients one would expect from Donna Hay. I had four or five marked to try on my first read through the book.

I will warn you that the original of this cookbook would be in metric since Donna Hay is an Australian magazine. My copy had the American version of recipes, which is good because I am terrible at math and making conversions.

This is a cookbook I've already come back to often.

This book is so lovely to look at. I love that it's organized by season, makes it easy to grocery shop or pick from your garden. The recipes are divinely simple, yet most of the recipes feature complex and fresh flavors. I've already tried the Paperbag Red Snapper with Preserved Lemon and the Chocolate Clafoutis--- both were delicious and so easy.

I have no idea who Donna Hay is, and frankly I didn't even remember adding this book to my Christmas list, but I'm glad I did. This cookbook is quite large, and features gorgeous photography of both recipes and scenery. The recipes are broken up by season, and then by savory or sweet. I love cooking seasonally, using what produce is available fresh to me, and so this book is perfect for that. I love cookbooks that have lots of photos (it makes a recipe that much more appealing when one can see the end product), and in that regard, Seasons does not disappoint. The beauty of this book, is that not only are the recipes drool-worthy, but the book itself is so gorgeous that it could be left out as a coffee table book. Definitely buy this book!

Donna Hay is my new foodie hero. This is the BEST Cookbook I have come across in years. I have made several savory dishes as well as desserts out of this cookbook already. The beef, eggplant and feta meatballs.....my new favorite recipe. And the Nectarine Tart with Orange Syrup.....so easy and delicious. The images, the recipes, the ingredients with the seasonality considered.......all so gorgeous.....and it is just the type of food I love to eat and share with friends. All the dishes I have made from this book have brought rave reviews.
I love to cook and this cookbook has given me new inspirations......and you can add your own twist or tastes to the recipes.....and it all just works out.
I purchased 10 copies to give to all my family for holiday presents. I even feel a little guilty holding back the two months until Christmas. They are all foodies and will absolutely love this cookbook. I would say this book is a Winner! Food is love :) Thank you Donna Hay.
Happy Cooking!

I am a huge fan of Donna Hay. Besides owning most of her cookbooks, I also subscribe to her magazine and can say this is one of the best cookbooks from her. Unlike her previous cookbooks, this is more reflective of her magazine and features lifestyle photography as well beautiful photo of each recipe.

The book is divided into four seasons with savoury and sweet recipes for each season. Below are our favorite recipes from each season:

Spring: caprese salad, cheat’s ricotta gnocchi (one of the best gnocchi recipes), sweet honeyed ricotta with brioche, and berry pavlova.

Summer: pan-fried butter and thyme scallops, pancetta, fig and goat cheese tart, lemongrass and chili prawns, salt and pepper crab, lemony peach cake, and strawberry and ricotta tart.

Autumn: roasted pumpkin and garlic soup, garlic pizza, roasted vegetable salad, stewed apple and coconut cobbler, coffee and chocolate self-saucing pudding, and pumpkin pie.

Winter: garlic and parmesan bread, shellfish chowder, sage roasted pork belly, creme caramel, rhubarb dumplings, and caramel dumplings.

I love that the recipes are simple and ingredients are easy to find. When preparing for a party, we often pull this cookbook to put together our menu. We rarely give any cookbooks five stars, but as food bloggers and foodies, my husband and I both agree that this one of the best cookbooks out there.

First, do not open this book if you are in a hurry. Save it for a time when you have a few minutes to spare, a chance to sit down in a nice chair, a glass of something at your side, and just... start... to... dream...

This latest book from Donna Hay is not a thing for rushing, but it is a work for contemplation, a chance to consider food and hopefully a precursor to a pleasant evening or two in nice company.

Looking at seasonal ingredients and how they can be combined together, this is really a recipe book hidden inside a sort-of inspirational lifestyle book. Camouflaged between lots of wonderful pictures that could look great framed on your wall, the author entices you in to her world, helps tune you in to her mindset and lets your tastebuds determine your destiny. This might sound a bit of pretentious twaddle but here the author and her publisher's team of talented designers have really managed to make a true fusion between a practical, good recipe book and an inspirational, aspirational lifestyle book. A sort of marriage for practical food-lovers made in heaven?

From the very first page to the very last page the reader is left nearly in a suspended dreamworld. Yet there is nothing fussy or unachievable here. Quite the contrary. The recipes, of which there are a lot, are almost an afterthought. As if placed there in a half-hearted apologetic way. Yet they are not haphazardly thrown in either. If you see the book you will understand what this means. They just sort of fade in and out. They are there when you need them but they don't get in the way either.
