Around The Table: Delicious food for every day (Paperback)
Slow Sundays are for herbed roast chicken with buttery croutons. Eating outside means cheddar and chive scones and fresh, spring salads. Friends coming for afternoon coffee calls for a simple blackberry yoghurt loaf, or a warming ginger cake with brown sugar cream cheese frosting if you're feeling decadent.
Beloved home cook Julia Busuttil Nishimura (Ostro, A Year of Simple Family Food) always knows the right dish for the occasion, weather or time of day. She also understands the power food has to bring people together around the table, whether that's to prepare a meal or to enjoy the delicious results.
With chapters ranging from the quick, tasty meals in Weeknight Saviours to the simple indulgence of Summer Feasting, Around the Table perfectly matches dishes to time and place. It includes recipes laden with personal meaning - Mediterranean classics from Julia's time in Italy and Malta, and Japanese dishes she has learned from her husband, Nori - that will transport readers through flavor, too.
