About the book:
‘Cooking with love’ aptly describes Trish van der Nest’s approach to food. This passionate foodie loves nothing more than to see family and friends gathered around her table, eating a meal she has prepared. She grew up in a family of cooks and from an early age, she and her brothers were encouraged to explore foods and flavours from around the world. Later on, her travels to Greece awakened a love of Mediterranean food in general and Greek food in particular.
Trish has always been an avid collector of recipes, seeking out those that appeal to her tastebuds, tell a story, capture a memory, or recount the origin of how she came by the recipe. Cooking with love: Treasured recipes from family and friends pays tribute to some of the friends, family, chefs and cookbook authors whose recipes have become part of her own culinary journey. Many recipes are introduced by a note explaining the story behind the dish, allowing the reader a glimpse into how this very personal collection of recipes came into being.
As a homeopath, Trish understands the role that good nutrition plays in supporting and maintaining wellbeing, and her healthy, carb-conscious recipes show that it is possible to prepare delicious, family-friendly meals without sacrificing any flavour, texture or taste.
