"Capturing the essence of a recipe along withthe essence of the author themselves is a difficult task, yet a task completedso skillfully by Orly and her photographer. Each image is bright andinviting, making me wish I had time to cook most of the recipes in this book. Vegetarians and vegans may particularly enjoy this work as there are justtwo meat recipes in the entire book and the focus on real food, wholeingredients and cooking with local produce means there are plenty of glutenfree dishes for you to sample too... This is a book that I turn to to build amenu or read for pleasure. The food tells a story and brings people together."

From the Author
In addition tosimple, flavorful recipes that anyone can make, I've also included little tipsand tricks to make cooking as easy as possible.
This is how Irecommend that you use my recipes: Try them, and then use them as a jumping offpoint to be inspired and make them your own. Switch up the vegetables or changethe spices to create your own flavors - there's no such thing as failure in thekitchen, only learning experiences. Of course baking is all about accuracy, butthere's still room to play there as well. Change plums to peaches or hazelnutsto almonds and see what happens.
