Real Food by Mike reminds us of the age-old truth that we are what we eat. Everything we put in our bodies has a profound affect on our wellbeing and long-term health. But this doesn’t mean that it can’t also be extraordinarily delicious, diverse and indulgent!
Over four chapters spanning the seasons, acclaimed chef Mike McEnearney (of No.1 Bent Street and Kitchen by Mike) harnesses the best produce available to bring to you fresh, wholesome recipes you will want to cook and eat over and over. Ranging from breakfast ideas to salads, more substantial dishes, sweet things and even drinks, many of these recipes are simple and take only minutes to prepare; others are broken up into stages to fit into our busy lives.
At the back of the book is the Larder section, to inspire you to make the most of what is plentiful in each season – and give you a head start in the kitchen. The bottom line is that it’s all about flavour. Feed in season just tastes better – the food and its flavour are both in their prime.
Beautifully photographed and illustrated, wand with notes on the health benefits of each recipe, Real Food by Mike elevates the sometimes lost art of joyful eating with a mind to wellbeing.
