simply delicious food

New large hardcover cookbook published 2011, 192 pages.
Home cooking is something that responds to what's in the market, what's in the fridge and who walks through the door. The tart you make on a hot summer night while your friend tells you about her new love affair will be very different from the one you cook in winter for your mother-in-law. That's what Homemade is all about.
The simple dishes you'll find in this book have come straight from my family dinners, lunches and impromptu feats with friends.
If these dishes become favourites in your home I'll be happy. If they lead you to make your own dishes I'll be ecstatic.
Recipes include breakfast dishes, appetisers, Asian-style dishes, condiments, cocktail food, desserts, pasta, seafood, vegetable dishes, salads. The book isn't arranged into sections, but the index is arranged by dish type and also by ingredient.
Homemade is an Australian publication. All measurements are in metric and metric cup & spoon.
About the author
Anna Gare’s passion for cooking began when she could reach the top of the kitchen bench. At the age of eight-and-a-half she took charge of her school canteen one day a week, providing a three course meal for a dollar. At 13 she formed an all girl band, the Jam Tarts, with her sister and two friends. For ten years the Jam Tarts was a successful touring and recording band, acclaimed within Australia and at international music festivals. While Anna was in the Jam Tarts, she supplemented her rock and roll lifestyle with cooking, where she honed her talents in various restaurants around Australia.
After a decade of performing, it was time for a change. Anna established Deluxe Catering, which became one of Perth’s most successful and innovative catering companies. The food created in the Deluxe kitchen not only leaves an impression, but often steals the show. Anna also began working in television on the ABC’s Consuming Passions as Ian Parmenter’s right hand assistant, preparing the dish he had prepared earlier. She went on to presenting her own cooking segments in local TV productions in WA. National success followed with three programs premiering on the Lifestyle Food Channel. .
Most recently, Anna has achieved recognition for her role as judge and mentor on the hugely successful Junior Masterchef Australia. Homemade is her first book.
