Donna Hay Seasons
HarperCollins Publisher: 2009
We can't all get out to the country or the seaside. The city is where we roam, but it doesn't mean that we don't love the style, the sensation and the sustenance of being out on the farm, on the beach or deep in the hinterland. Donna Hay's Seasons helps us to connect good food with good times by teaching us to add parmesan twists to a spring picnic and to indulge in spinach and feta pies as a light summer lunch. It takes us into the hinterland in the fall with a rhubarb and vanilla lattice pie and warms us in winter with cheesy oregano chicken rolls.
Images of rustic furniture, vintage cutlery, dishware and mason jars filled with sweet and savoury foods make Seasons a real comfort book for those lazy days at home. In my opinion, it can't be a good cookbook without exceptional photography to compliment the recipes. Seasons is worthy of a permanent place on your coffee table. My favorite recipe: Tzatziki
