Author(s): Matt Wilkinson; Sharlee Gibb
Mr & Mrs Wilkinson's How it is at Home is a window on the buzzy, creative, and sometimes chaotic home world of acclaimed UK born chef Matt Wilkinson, his partner, Sharlee Gibb, and their two young boys, Finn and Jay. Their book is about inviting people into that very real world, where the sometimes competing demands of work and family mean that feats of creativity and imagination are required to put good food on the table.
Covering everything from one-pot wonders to quick weeknight meals, picnic food and lunchbox treats, right through to weekend feasts with friends and meals to enjoy when either mom or dad are away, there is something for every occasion. Mr & Mrs Wilkinson's How it is at Home is an unshamedly fun and accessible family cookbook with the signature wit and style that Matt Wilkinson's books are well known for.
I love Mr and Mrs Wilkinson’s cookbooks, that I have all of them, including this one. Filled with easy and balanced recipes, I have cooked many of dinners from recipes inside this book. The photos are great and will definitely help to inspire you. A great family cookbook.
