This cookbook draws on the traditions of farm cooking, using fresh foods as well as the rich influences of many cultures on our cuisine. Recipes emphasise wholesome ingredients bought in season at local supermarkets or farmers' markets. Along with the many easy-to-make recipes, this cookbook includes personal stories and anecdotes by the authors. Their perceptive observations make the links between food production and how food arrives on our tables. With wit and humour, they show how we can be both critical consumers of food and wonderful cooks.
