A celebration of hearth and home, 'Family' centres around the power of vegetables and healthy yet hearty eating. Akin to her first two cookbooks Community and Neighbourhood, cook and author Hetty McKinnon's driving force is the idea of bringing people together through food. Recipes included here are an eclectic mix of family meals handed down over the years, classic meals of comfort and family favourites she serves at her own table. Think deconstructed falafel salad with crispy roasted chickpeas and fresh greens, drizzled with lemony tahini or an earthy miso brown butter sauce spiked with crispy sage and tossed through your favourite pasta. Dessert is also on the menu; chocolate pudding and lime pie with an Anzac biscuit crust. This is a cookbook that won't just live in your pantry, but one you will thank for making cooking with sharing in mind second nature.
