Congrats Kathy and Jude!
Ohhhh if I was ever to write a cookbook, I think one like Green Kitchen Travels would be my absolute dream.
Travel, eat amazing vegetarian food, come home, and translate those experiences into recipes for you.
Luise + David from Green Kitchen Stories has made the most utterly gorgeous compendium of cuisine from amazing places they’ve been. Jealousy was in overload from the minute I opened the cover.
I’ve been a huge fan of their blog since I reviewed their first book, The Green Kitchen, which is still a favourite on my shelf. I even recommend it as one of my vegetarian cookbook staples, and tell people to get their app all the time. Their food is super-healthy without being weird, and it’s naturally pretty in a sweet kind of humble way.
Recipes that stood out to me were the mushroom and tofu dumplings, the aubergine bites with honey and lime, the harira soup, and the Paruppu dhal curry. I want to eat them all, right now, one after the other. They cover breakfast, street food, salads/sides, soups, dinner, “drips and drops”, desserts, and condiments.
As well as recipes, they share their food philosophy, which is very similar to mine (veggies, good fat, natural sweeteners, whole grains, legumes, seeds, nuts, and fruit, organic where possible, party occasionally), and tips for travelling with kids. Although their tips are much more wholesome than mine!
Thanks to Hardie Grant, two of you will win a copy of Green Kitchen Travels. All you have to do is leave a comment describing the most amazing meal you had on your travels somewhere. We’ll pick a winner based on that answer and post you out a copy of your very own.
Competition closes Wednesday November 26 at midnight daylight savings time. Australian residents only, please (sorry!).
Meanwhile, would you LOOK AT THIS KID! A-do-ra-ble.
