Home Made by Yvette
Our lovely food contributor hailing from Holland, Yvette van Boven, will not be able to feature her tasteful illustrated-recipes this week cause she’s really busy on a project called “Home Made”. What is it all about? Essentially focused on food, which we cannot leave aside with Yvette, “Home Made” will be a collection of many useful and step-by-step illustrated stories-recipes, in which the reader will be challenged to learn and prepare new things. New home made things.
A series of tips to use the ingredients you already got in your fridge, without any expensive or complicated machines or devices. The book works up from the morning and cooks itself throughout the day; so you’ll be pleased to make your own brewed tea, bake cakes and why not, your own drinks, nibbles, bites, till mayonnaise for those who need something to eat after a night out. The ‘Do it Yourself’ philosphy is the one embraced by Yvette, who wisely designed the fonts, cut and drew the illustrations, wrote all the recipes, made the food styling and finally set up the book. Within a totally womanly matter, her husband Oof Verschuren shot the pictures inside the book. Will you be able to wait ‘Home Made’ to be out by the end of August? Considering this tantalizing preview, we won’t.
