Home Made is a unique cookbook that is all about making everything yourself, as Yvette van Boven did to make her first book. She made her own fonts, drew the illustrations, wrote all the recipes, prepared the food for the photographs, and designed the book. Now, a series of award-winning and internationally successful cookbooks further, she created the perfect companion to her cookbooks for the DIY cook and aficionado.
That companion is the Home Made Food Notebook, written and illustrated by Yvette, but created to be taken over by all the foodies who loved her books so they can now keep notes of their own adventures in food heaven. This food notebook has handy information on measures and conversions, food names in different languages, a seasonal calendar, and more. In the section, “My Kitchen”, Yvette shares her pantry staples and how she makes them, from mustard to mayonnaise, butter to vinaigrette, and more. Most pages are, however, only lightly illustrated for you to fill with your recipes, lists, tips, and memories.
