Meet Emma Galloway!

Friday 7th May. 6pm, Wardini Books Napier

Great excitement in the Wardini house! Emma is coming to have a chat with our Nigel at Wardini Books NAPIER and you're all invited. Come and hear how to make your food not only quickly and easily but so that it's bursting with deliciousness. There might well be treats too!
Spiced pumpkin snacking cake; Pea, mint + halloumi fritters; Mushroom + lentil lasagne, and Roasted strawberry + ginger 'ice cream' are among the beautiful, nourishing, simple-to-make and absolutely delicious recipes celebrated in Emma Galloway's third book from her home kitchen.

Everyday food should be quick and easy, using readily available ingredients and simple techniques. Over years working as a chef and as a mother of two, Emma has designed tips and tricks to make cooking simpler through planning ahead and using ingredients that are easy to swap out.

‘Dotted throughout Every Day, you’ll find my ‘anything’ recipes, with examples of how you can change things up to suit your tastes or what you might have on hand at different times of the year. My main goal is to create meals that are easy and totally do-able, every day of the week. I want people to feel confident in the kitchen and know that, by cooking at home, with simple real-food ingredients, they’re making one of the most powerful decisions we can make as humans: the decision of what goes into our bodies.’ – Emma Galloway
