Yvestown in the Kitchen is more than just a recipe book. It's an invitation to explore the universal bonds that tie us together as we gather in and around the kitchen table with friends and family to feast!
Author and photographer, Yvonne Eijkenduijn, believes that "the love of food is not only a love of cooking, but also a love for the kitchens the food is prepared in." This is clearly seen in the photographs of Yvonne's own kitchen-where fanciful tea towels and a delightful blue refrigerator accent the white tile and cabinets, while antique plates adorn the area above an old fireplace, surrounded by a cheerful flowery wallpapered backdrop. You want to step right into her kitchen and dive into her recipes-starting perhaps with the Surinamese Chicken Pies and followed by the elegant Victorian Sponge Cake with a strawberry jam filling.
Yvonne visits the home of several friends and family and gathers their favorite recipes, or includes some of her own, while giving us a glimpse into all of their kitchens. Interviews with each reveal insights on home design, decorating, and surprisingly delicious flavor combinations (ice cream and a splash of olive oil . . . who knew?).
Woven in between the 45 various world-cuisine recipes included (each with its own enticing full-color photograph), are beautiful photographs celebrating kitchens and the people that call them home.
