The Way Food Was Meant to Be
Published by Jane Grover Pty Ltd- RRP NZ $59.99
From fine dining chef to wholefood cook, teacher and guide, Jane Grover's inspiring story, and delicious and nutritious recipes, makes this the must-have cookbook for the year.
‘My aim with this cookbook is to equip and empower you to be unafraid to cook and eat well, meaning you can live a healthier life – you, your family and the next generations.’
NAKED FOOD has over ninety simple and healthy recipes you can cook from scratch, creating food that tastes great and is good for you. Jane Grover’s first cookbook has beautiful full page colour photos for every recipe by renowned photographer Steve Brown.
NAKED FOOD features simple to follow recipes as well as Jane Grover’s story of how she went from being a fine food chef to mother of three – and to passionate home cook of organic wholefoods. Jane lives on an average suburban block with her family but manages to grow her own produce, compost and recycle, and even raise hens for eggs. Jane now runs a cooking school from her home kitchen and garden, and she takes people on tours to local farmers markets, as well as regional road trips to meet farmers and learn from them. NAKED FOOD also profiles farmers, growers and producers, and offers a guide of where to shop and eat for organic wholefoods and farmers markets.
NAKED FOOD is the perfect cookbook for anyone wanting recipes that work that are healthy and nutritious with minimal fuss.
