APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
This is the kind of cookbook you actually want to cook with. HGTV Canada host Jillian Harris and her cousin, dietician Tori Wesszer, have gathered family recipes—many from their Ukraine-born grandmother (like kurtia, an amazing wheat berry pudding with dried fruits). To these, they’ve added a thoughtful selection of more contemporary dishes like butternut squash carbonara and kale slaw with tahini dressing. You could bookmark your favourite recipes from half the book before you notice that aside from a couple of fish dishes, they’re all meatless and full of easy vegan substitutions. Along with a heartwarming introduction about how the cousins grew up with food as a family bond, there’s also a useful list of pantry staples and cookware anyone could use to build a first kitchen. Even an inexperienced cook can follow the well-written instructions, and the photos look as delicious as the recipes. You’ll want to hop into the kitchen almost as soon as you open it.
