A few weeks ago now, when I attended the Britmums Live conference I was thrilled to be given a few cookery books to try out and so here is the first of my recipe reviews.
Mama’s Family Cookbook is a chunky, feelgood selection of attractive, tasty recipes suitable for all the family. It’s packed full of hearty, wholesome meals that look traditional and yet so modern. The photography is gorgeous and inviting and I’ve made a few things from the cookbook already; the images just draw you in. I love it’s old fashioned feel and wondered if I’d find the recipes a little heavy and unhealthy, but no, quite the opposite in fact. Pleny of vegetables, salad and lashings of olive oil (as you’d expect of course) make this suitable for those on a health kick as well as those wanting to serve up an Italian feast for a dinner party.
