Uit de oven van Van Boven


For two years Yvette weekly wrote an oven recipe for Volkskrant Magazine. Over 50 of those have been collected in this lovely little book. As usual with clear, foolproof recipes and of course with Yvettes famous drawings. Not only cakes and cookies are being baked in Yvettes oven; veg, meat and fish get full attention as well.

Uit de oven van Van Boven is, however only in Dutch, now in stores or available online.

Home Made Food Notebook

Home Made is a unique cookbook that is all about making everything yourself, as Yvette van Boven did to make her first book. She made her own fonts, drew the illustrations, wrote all the recipes, prepared the food for the photographs, and designed the book. Now, a series of award-winning and internationally successful cookbooks further, she created the perfect companion to her cookbooks for the DIY cook and aficionado.

That companion is the Home Made Food Notebook, written and illustrated by Yvette, but created to be taken over by all the foodies who loved her books so they can now keep notes of their own adventures in food heaven.

This food notebook has handy information on measures and conversions, food names in different languages, a seasonal calendar, and more. In the section, “My Kitchen”, Yvette shares her pantry staples and how she makes them, from mustard to mayonnaise, butter to vinaigrette, and more. Most pages are, however, only lightly illustrated for you to fill with your recipes, lists, tips, and memories.

You can buy the Home Made Food Notebook, in English, in your local bookstore or here.

Home Made Menu

HOME MADE MENU is a little pocketbook. I went through all my recipes and cooking methods and assembled them in a different order. Sometimes to surprise you, sometimes to put a recipe in the spotlights that didn’t get the attention it needed earlier. In this book you will find a special menu for that particular evening when you want impress new in-laws, for example, your colleagues or your own wife . There is a vegetarian menu, or one with only fish & shellfish. I also put together a menu for larger groups of people, because sometimes that can be quite difficult and even one with almost only drinks for a party, like new years eve.

Available from nov 11, only in dutch.

Home Made Summer

After the nourishing comfort food from Home Made Winter, it’s now time for Home Made Summer, a collection of sun-drenched dishes. For the recipes in this book, Yvette took inspiration from her day-to-day life in Amsterdam and Paris, but even more so from summers spent in Provence, on an orchard near Avignon.

In this book, you’ll find dishes that won’t take much time or effort to prepare: ideas for long barbecue nights with friends, perfect salads to accompany the grilled dishes, cold soups for those super-hot days, and festive summer drinks. The book is brimming with foolproof recipes, step-by-step explanations, mouthwatering photography by Oof, and Yvette’s lively illustrations.

Home Made Winter

Winter is the first half of two books: home made ZOMER (Summer) will arrive spring 2013 in German and English.

The WINTER book is all about comforting winter food, with inspiration from Ireland, France and Holland, the countries where I’ve lived and live. There are simple recipes for classics that everyone thought they were difficult to make, such as croquettes, pulled pork and apple cider. Step by step guides for making butter for example, the Dutch ‘Ossenworst’ sausage or Baileys. I also give recipes for things we eat on winter holidays: like Plum Pudding for Christmas, Colcannon on Halloween, Galette des Rois on Epiphany.

Just like with Home Made, I did everything in this very personal cookbook myself again: the design, the illustrations and I prepared all the dishes for photography. The pictures were taken by my husband, photographer Oof Verschuren.

Home Made

Yvette van Boven, photography Oof Verschuren

A unique cook- & DIY book, with over 200 recipes and ideas for home made food.

Awarded as ‘Dutch Cookbook Of The Year 2010Awarded as ‘Best informative Dutch book 2010’ – ‘het lintje van de Boekverkoper 2011’ Nominated for ‘Best first cookbook’ at the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards 2011 Winner of the 2012 Treehugger Reader’s Choice Awards for Best Cookbook

How do you make cheese from pantry staples? How do you create an oven smoker from scratch in just  two minutes? How do you make ice cream without an ice cream machine? And how can you use your homemade cheese, smoked fish, ice cream and many other products in original recipes?

In this cookbook Yvette explains all of this. In clear step-by-step stories illustrated instructions, you’re encouraged to learn and prepare new cooking techniques without needing to run to the store to buy expensive ingredients or complicated kitchen gadgets. After reading this book, you’ll be able to say that everything you cook is HOME MADE.

The book begins with breakfast and works its way through the day: how to bake your own bread in the morning and fix a healthy and original lunch after that, towards the afternoon: how to make your own brewed tea, bake cakes, the happy hour: how to make your own drinks, liqueur, how to make nibbles and bites, the evening: dinner, cheese, dessert, through the night: how to make mustard, ketchup and mayonnaise for those who need something to eat, after a night out at the pub. There are even recipes for doggy treats. The book ends with menus: assembled with the recipes, to combine to dinners or buffets for all occasions.

Home made is all about making everything yourself, and so did Yvette van Boven to make this book: She made her own fonts, drew the illustrations, wrote all the recipes, prepared the food for the photographs  and designed the book. Her husband, photographer Oof Verschuren, took all the beautiful images.

Yvette van Boven (Ireland, 1968) divides her time between Amsterdam and Paris. She is a freelance food stylist and recipe writer and owns, together with her cousin, a restaurant and catering company in Amsterdam. She also illustrates books and magazines. Her work appears regularly in magazines such as Delicious., Elle Food, Flow, Margriet, newspapers and books.

Home Made is published in Dutch, English, German and French.
