An Honest Kitchen – real food that’s good for you
Early in 2009 I started working with writer and photographer Lucinda Dodds of Nourish Me on the idea for an eMagazine. Over the course of a few months and quite a lot of emails, we focussed and crystalised our ideas and launched An Honest Kitchen.
An Honest Kitchen is a series of seasonally-based e-magazines focussed on real food that’s good for you. Its honest food – no spin, unrealistic styling or glossing over what’s involved in cooking and eating well.
We have the home cook squarely in our minds when developing each of the recipes. It’s the kind of food you can quickly make at the end of a long day, and then sit down to enjoy, knowing you are eating something which is improving your health. Plus of course the food tastes great.
An Honest Kitchen is full of simple recipes, practical cooking information and healthy eating advice. The whole publication is illustrated with Lucy’s glorious photographs.
Cooking for One – A$3.00
Cooking for One is compact edition, with a summer focus. Rather than over-loading you with stacks of new food, we’re focusing on three healthy, tasty and, of course, delicious recipes. Three recipes, which give you four different meals. As usual we’re using seasonal ingredients, but in this issue we’ve also cut down on the washing up and found ways to minimise food waste.
The edition costs A$3.00 and is available through Paypal – just click on the Buy Now button below.
Soup (special mini-edition) A$3.00
A mini collection of our favourite An Honest Kitchen soup recipes – guaranteed to be comforting and warm.
The collection costs AU$3.00 and contains four recipes which appeared in the Autumn and Winter editions of our e-magazine. Each is easy, tasty and a great meal-in-a-bowl.
