Take time out of your busy schedules to savour life's simple pleasures - the sweetness of a fresh-picked berry, the crunch of a carrot straight from the earth, and the joy to be found in cooking with love for family and friends. With SIMPLE PLEASURES, Annabel stays true to her philosophy that quality natural ingredients need little in the way of fussy preparation, cooking up an exciting new batch of recipes using seasonal ingredients fresh from her kitchen garden. Inside, gorgeous photos of Annabel's home-cooked food are interspersed with inspiring images of her verdant vegetable garden and orchard, and the amazing natural landscapes of New Zealand's scenic South Island. As well as more than 150 delicious recipes, SIMPLE PLEASURES features menu suggestions drawn from the accompanying TV series, plus Annabel's musings on living well in today's fast-paced world. SIMPLE PLEASURES 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.
