Who says winter needs to feel like a struggle and a chore? I believe if you take your inspiration from what's fresh and in season you'll find there's a lot to celebrate during the colder months – from the enticing aroma of a caramel sultana cake baking to the comfort of a bowl of spicy bean and chorizo soup on a cold night…
I want winter to feel easy and fun, not cold and difficult, so in putting together my first ever winter annual, I have streamlined and simplified winter cooking to give it the same easy mood that we love about summer.
As well as more than 150 delicious new recipes, Annabel Langbein A Free Range Life: Winter Goodness is packed with tools, tips and tricks to take the stress and boredom out of deciding what to eat in winter. An eight-week meal planner offers simple solutions for weeknight meals, while slow-cooker recipes, make-ahead workday salad lunches and my trademark FridgeFixings give you a jump-start on the week. Winter roasts, traditional puds and even takeaway favourites all get a makeover – a fresh, light approach that makes the most of seasonal produce.
It’s everything you need for delicious winter, and it’s all backed up by bonus recipes, shopping lists and gardening charts on this website. Just click on the tiles below to learn more.
Annabel Langbein A Free Range Life: Winter Goodness (Annabel Langbein Media, $24.95) will be available at good supermarkets, bookstores and retailers from April 2015 and makes a great Mother’s Day gift or treat for yourself.
