From the Inside Flap
'Real family food is not just about sharing uncomplicated, heart-warming food, it's about slowing down for a few precious minutes, cracking up over silly stories, bickering about things that don't matter and remembering why, through the thick and thin, nothing beats being together.'
Tana Ramsay's Real Family Food is a must for every family kitchen.
With her trademark simple and delicious recipes, Tana makes it easy for you to cook fabulous food every day, whether you want to rustle up dinner in a flash, impress the in-laws over a big family lunch or linger over brunch in your pyjamas.
Full of refreshingly different recipes that all the family will enjoy, this sumptuously illustrated cookbook is as much a celebration of life as it is of good food. And, like her bestselling Tana Ramsay's Family Kitchen, it's destined to become a family classic.See all Product description

'Tana's trademark simple and delicious recipes make it easy to cook fabulous food every day whether you want to rustle up dinner in a flash, impress the in-laws over a big family lunch or linger over brunch in your pyjamas'.
'Real family food is not just about sharing uncomplicated, heart-warming food, it's about slowing down for a few precious minutes, cracking up over silly stories, bickering about things that don't matter and remembering why, though thick and thin, nothing beats being together....'
Opening with a charming dedication to her husband, 'For Gordon. Thank you for being you', this book carries on from her first:-
Tana Ramsay's Family Kitchen.
263 high quality matt pages, split over 10 chapters:-
Breakfasts and Brunches
Picnics and Treats
Food in a Flash
Try Something Different
Big Family Lunches
sandwiched between an introduction and a full index.
'When you think about it, ultimately we only need to eat to refuel ......Even so, I believe that food can play another, almost more important, part of our lives. It can bring us together, slow us down and let us catch up with each other as we rush through the week. Some of the happiest moments of my life have been around the table sharing good food, and the times I treasure most with my family are when we are all together doing just that. This must be why I associate certain foods and dishes with different people and places...........'
Each chapter opens with applicable text from Tana, followed by a 'title page' for the dishes featured.
The majority of the recipes open with a personal note, followed by a clear list of ingredients, the numbered method, how long it takes to prepare and make and the number of servings.
Most finish with a helpful 'tip', or two.
Full colour photography throughout, although much of it is family and 'on-location', rather than of the finished dishes, so this might prove a little negative for those of us who like to see what we are aiming for on the plate!
A small taste of the recipes contained within:-
Bacon and Egg Muffins
Hearty Winter Soup
Red Onion Tarte Tatin
Honey and Mustard Sticky Chicken
Mini Party Cakes
Fresh Raspberry Ice Lollies
Sweet and Sour Pork
Minced Lamb Curry
Toad-In-the Hole with Roasted Shallots

Update 4/18/08: Love this book. Every recipe I've tried has worked succesfully and I'm looking forward to getting through more. What I like best about the book is it made me wonder hey, why didn't I think of this? Especially the Mango Chicken Salad, which was to die for. Simple ingredients but it packed a wallop of flavor. I can highly recommend this book and it presented no problem for me as an American cook.
But if you can get it cheaply - do buy it for the recipes.
