While the focus is on her children, Ramsay is determined that these recipes will also feed her husband. The recipes are designed to be for sharing with the family, not simply getting through each day.
The chapters are designed around the idea of shared family occasions such as weekend brunch, picnics, big family lunches and laid-back suppers. That’s not to say these are overly complicated, they’re well-composed recipes that will please fussy-eaters and fussy-husbands.
Inspiration is garnered from all over the world: lamb somosas, sesame prawn toast, ANZAC biscuits and Moroccan lamb all have a place in the pages of Ramsay’s book.
It is a true family cookbook: vegetables are given attention to turn them into something children will devour (the carrot and parsnip mash looks great), the mini party cakes will be great for birthdays, the chapter on baking adventures will get the kids into the kitchen and there’s a chapter designed to encourage you to try something different.
Tana Ramsay knows how to cook. She cooks for a Michelin starred chef and a large family and she cooks well. This book will help you cook. It will help create occasions to get the family together over the dinner table or the kitchen bench.
