Annabel Langbein the Free Range Cook
Following the phenomenal local and international success of her 2010 cookbook Annabel Langbein The Free Range Cook, which was recently named Best TV Cookbook at the 2012 Gourmand World Cookbook Awards, Annabel returns to her idyllic lakeside cabin to cook up an exciting new batch of recipes using... read more seasonal ingredients fresh from her kitchen garden. True to her philosophy that quality natural ingredients need little in the way of fussy preparation, her new book is entitled Annabel Langbein The Free Range Cook: Simple Pleasures. Inside, luscious photos of Annabel's home-cooked food are interspersed with equally inspiring images of her verdant vegetable garden and orchard, and the gorgeous natural landscapes of the scenic South Island. As well as more than 200 delicious recipes, all easily achievable by the home cook, the book features menu suggestions drawn from the accompanying TV series, plus Annabel's musings on living well in today's fast-paced world. It is interactive with Annabel's website annabel-langbein.com, with QR codes on many recipes linking the reader directly to a video of Annabel making that recipe or sharing her tips for simplifying tricky techniques.
With 19 cookbooks under her belt, Annabel has earned a passionate following for her uncomplicated recipes that transform inexpensive, everyday ingredients into meals with the wow factor. She draws on a global palette of flavours and her trademark Fridge Fixings to create dishes that are big on flavour while, with a few indulgent exceptions, light on fat and sugar. With this exciting new book from Annabel Langbein, readers are invited to take time out from their busy schedules to savour life's simple pleasures.
