Review: Hemsley Hemsley: The Art of Eating Well





This collection of delicious recipes come from the gorgeous Hemsley sisters. Their philosophy on food is eating the best food that you can, making healthy eating easy to maintain, sustainable and enjoyable. The place an emphasis on using local, fresh produce free from chemicals yet encourage you only to spend what you can afford by planning, bulk buying and making things from scratch. This is not just a recipe book but a guide to living the ‘Hemsley Hemsley’ lifestyle by advising you on how to stock your kitchen with the right ingredients, such as oils and fats, nuts and seeds, pseudocereals, natural sweeteners, herbs and spices, and vegetables. They also explain each set of ingredients, why they are important and how to get the best from them. The book takes you through breakfasts, soups, salads, sides and snacks, meat and fish dishes, vegetable mains, baking and desserts, and drinks. There is also a further section comtaining basic recipes and methods such as cashew milk, almond flour and hazelnut butter. My favourite recipes that I have tried out so far are the baked courgette fries eaten with the feta and black bean burgers. I also whipped up some of the broccoli, pea and mint mash which was delicious on sesame Ryvita crispbreads. Be sure to try: the baked broccoli fritters and avacado dip, the beef ragu with courgetti, buckwheat burritos, BB brownies and the strawberry, mint and cucumber smoothie.
