Homegrown Kitchen is a complete guide to eating well for those who love to cook fresh food. Beginning with a comprehensive section on the kitchen essentials, including sourdough bread, home preserving and fermentation, the book is then divided into breakfast, lunch and main meal chapters, followed by a chapter on indulgent sweet treats. Inspired by her large garden, Nicola Galloway creates food in rhythm with the changing seasons, with fresh homegrown and local produce forming the base of her recipes. With a young family, her food focus is on simple and delicious family-friendly recipes using pantry staples that are packed with nutrients. Nicola also has a particular interest in healthful traditional cooking techniques, such as sourdough bread and fermentation, and simplifying them so they can fit into our busy modern lives.
NICOLA GALLOWAY writes and photographs the popular, award-winning food blog Homegrown Kitchen, and is the author of three cookbooks including Feeding Little Tummies. She regularly contributes recipes to magazines, including a monthly column for MiNDFOOD and Wild Tomato. A trained chef and nutrition consultant, Nicola is passionate about sharing her knowledge and enthusiasm for eating well, and has been presenting cooking workshops around New Zealand for 14 years. Nicola lives in Nelson with her husband and two children, on an urban quarter-acre section with heritage fruit trees, large veggie gardens and six happy chooks.
