Annabel Langbein Shares the Love

Annabel Langbein Shares the Love
New Zealand’s favourite cookbook author and publisher has all your cold-weather cravings covered with her new autumn and winter go-to guide Annabel Langbein A Free Range Life: Share the Love.
The fourth installment in Annabel’s series of seasonal publications, Share the Love brings together more than 120 soul-warming eating ideas, including everything from cosy brunches and hearty oven bakes to zesty winter salads and easy Asian dinners.
“Whether it's a simple pot of soup or an elaborate multi-course dinner, cooking gives
us the chance to share the love,” says Annabel.
“I wanted to show that winter food doesn’t have to be bland and stodgy. It’s all about keeping your tastebuds tempted with creative combinations of tastes and textures drawn from a global pantry of flavours.”
A whole chapter is devoted to make-ahead meals that’ll wow your friends at your next potluck dinner party (see for details of Annabel’s Share the Love Potluck competition, which could win you a trip for two to Wanaka), another focuses on family friendly sausage recipes, and a third suggests innovative bento lunchbox ideas.
For the sweet-toothed, there’s a decadent collection of best-ever chocolate baking, some sublime citrus desserts and Annabel’s favourite autumn preserves.
Famous for her clever cooking tips, Annabel offers advice for adapting all your winter favourites for the slow-cooker, and a handy survival guide for that oh-no moment when you realise you don’t have the right size cake tin.
A six-week meal planner delivers simple solutions for weeknight meals, while Annabel also provides menu suggestions for every occasion, including a vegetarian feast, gluten-free guests and entertaining on a shoestring.
This inspiring new recipe collection is backed up by shopping lists, gardening charts and bonus cooking tips and tricks on Annabel’s website at 
Annabel Langbein A Free Range Life: Share the Love (Annabel Langbein Media, RRP $24.95) is available at supermarkets, Paper Plus, the Warehouse and good bookstores from 18 April 2016 and makes a great Mother’s Day gift or treat for yourself.
