Deceptively Simple Dishes for a Deliciously Stylish Life
Inspired by her British grandma ("the original Yummy Mummy" and still the epitome of chic at ninety-two years old), Marina Delio has found her groove as a modern Yummy Mummy: a loving and devoted mom who values fitness and health and maintains style and grace, even with small children at home. Offering busy moms easy, irresistible recipes for every meal of the day and every season of the year, The Yummy Mummy Kitchen shows how healthy meals with small touches like sparkling cranberries and flower garnishes can make us all feel a little more glamorous amid the chaos of raising a family.
Focusing on quality, seasonal, local ingredients, Marina shares mostly meatless, produce-rich recipes that are sophisticated without being complicated. They're accompanied by life tips and timeless wisdom about the importance of establishing regular family dinners and traditions, teaching kids to respect and appreciate real food (she begs of you, do not hide pureed vegetables in their meals ), and engaging your children in the cooking process. Marina offers practical, time-saving hints for preparing make-ahead meals, stocking the freezer and the pantry for impromptu entertaining, and menu planning. She even shares the secrets behind fish that doesn't taste fishy, why every Yummy Mummy should keep a stash of chocolate in her nightstand, and where to find the most dazzling, classic red lipstick.
From cozy family breakfasts to playroom tea parties, moms' nights to date nights, you'll soon experience the joy and tremendous satisfaction of creating beautiful homemade meals and lasting memories that will nourish and comfort everyone you cherish most.
