Heart-warming home-cooked food from the owner of iconic Hawkes Bay restaurant, Pipi.

Heart-warming home-cooked food from the owner of iconic Hawkes Bay restaurant, Pipi.

In her second cookbook, Pipi owner and chef Alexandra Tylee shares the recipes she cooks at home for her family. These are the meals and special treats Alex makes at her Hawkes Bay farmhouse when she's not working in her busy Havelock North restaurant. In addition to lunches and dinners, recipes for breakfast, puddings and baking feature alongside dishes suited to slightly more elaborate occasions.
As a busy working mother, Alexandra knows what its like to be tight on time or running low on ingredients and how the daily dinner rush can become a cooking a challenge. With the recipes in this book she wants to make cooking interesting, satisfying and, most importantly, fun. With readily available seasonal ingredients and her trademark rustic style of cooking, Alexandra transforms even the most humble dish into something a little bit special. As she says, 'as long as the food is healthy and tasty, it doesn't matter if it might not win a prize in a tricky cooking competition.' In Pipi at Home it's all about sitting down to share honest home-cooked meals with the people you love.
