"Bring family mealtimes to life with this joyful celebration of dishes to inspire a lifelong love of food "
Goodbye, beige; hello, colour! How refreshing to find a family cookbook that refuses to shy away from bold flavours, fresh twists or a generous helping of food theatre. A collaboration between Nicole Pisani, Head Chef and co-founder of Chefs in Schools, and cookery writer and columnist, Joanna Weinberg, this is a little gem for any family looking to break free from their cooking rut, without breaking the bank in the process. This beautifully curated book is bursting with culturally diverse recipes interspersed with the stories of the school chefs responsible for bringing them to dining halls across the country. For those just starting out on their food journey, classics like fish fingers and bolognese have been given a fragrant face-lift (and an added nutritious punch). For more adventurous children, wholesome dishes like SouSou’s Moroccan Chicken, Samia’s Samosas or a seafood Keralan Curry will all add a little joy to those midweek menus. There’s a fabulous selection of street food perfect for streetwise teenagers and look out for special contributions too from kitchen heroes including Thomasina Miers and Yotam Ottolenghi. The target audience for these delectable recipes may be school-aged children, but that’s no reason to stick to safe, time-tested favourites. Feed Your Family is about celebrating the excitement and drama that food can bring and laying down the foundations for positive relationships between children and the food they eat. It’s an absolute delight.
