Notes about this book

  • joanne_w on September 04, 2020

    It's Japan meets Italy. This book has a range of recipes including mains, but what I like most is it gave me some new ideas for salad combinations and desserts. True to its name it's straightforward recipes I could see myself using for family gatherings.

Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Miso roast chicken

    • Jenny on October 13, 2020

      I've made this twice now and it is incredibly delicious and packed with flavor. I served with coconut rice and roasted broccoli.

  • Blackberry and apple pudding

    • Lepa on February 23, 2021

      This was not too sweet- we loved it. I didn't have a 28 cm pan so I used a 10 inch glass cake pan and that worked well. I baked the cake for 40 minutes.

  • Sweet potato and spinach curry

    • Lepa on February 24, 2021

      This was pretty good. We ate it over rice. I used Japanese sweet potatoes, which had a great texture for a curry like this.

Family food is generous, unfussy and demonstrates love and care. No matter what busyness the day brings, the act of setting the table and enjoying a simple meal together is comforting and ever-reassuring.

Eating simply and seasonally is at the core of Julia Busuttil Nishimura's recipes.

Whether it's a cooling coffee granita to start a summer's day or the comfort of a hearty baked maccheroni in darkest winter, this is the kind of food you will want to share with your loved ones throughout the year.
