AROUND THE TABLE - JULIA BUSUTTIL NISHIMURA
Slow Sundays are for herbed roast chicken and silky smooth panna cotta.
Eating outside means cheddar scones and fresh, spring salads.
Friends coming by for afternoon coffee calls for a simple blackberry yoghurt loaf or comforting ginger cake with cream cheese frosting.
Beloved home cook Julia Busuttil Nishimura always knows the right dish for the occasion, weather or time of day. She also understands the power food has to bring people together, whether that's to prepare a meal or enjoy the delicious results.
With recipes ranging from quick, flavourful meals for busy weeknights to simple indulgences for summer feasts, Around the Table perfectly matches dishes to time and place.
It includes recipes laden with personal meaning - Mediterranean classics from Italy and Malta, and Japanese dishes Julia has learned from her husband, Nori - that will soon become favourites around your table, too.
Julia Busuttil Nishimura is a Melbourne-based cook and author. Her work celebrates simple ingredients, seasonal produce and the joys of coming together at the table. Julia's cooking is influenced by her Maltese heritage, the distinctive ebb and flow of Melbourne's seasons, and by her time spent living in Tuscany, where she learned the joys of the Italian kitchen. She is a regular contributor to publications such as Good Weekend, Good Food, The Design Files and ABC Everyday. Julia is the author of two bestselling cookbooks: Ostro and A Year of Simple Family Food. She lives with her husband, Nori, and two children.
