If you have little ones and lunch boxes to fill, it’s Eloise Emmett you need to know. That’s if you haven’t come across her already or eaten her delicious offerings at farmers markets or her former restaurant, Mussel Boys. Ellie will have you spreading flour across your kitchen table in a white puff of laughter and filling those tummies with wholesome goodness.
Head to www.eloiseemmett.com and you’ll find recipes for big people too- like Slow Roasted Goat Shanks and White Chocolate and Apricot Torte along with high-action oyster shuck offs. But it’s not just Ellie’s online presence that makes this Chef and country Mum so inspiring, but her commitment to ensuring all the little tots eat well. The most exciting news of all? Ellie is about to launch her first children’s cook book: The Read Food for Kids Cookbook.
This gorgeously crafted hard-cover book is packed full of wholesome recipes, using fresh Tassie goodness that Ellie cooks with daily for her three children. The pages are splashed with grins and little arms up to their elbows ‘helping out.’ These recipes are made with food ‘that your gran would recognise’ and the smiles prove the taste results.
Recipes range from easy through to more challenging, but all are home-grown, unpretentious, real food creations where the children find out where food comes from and how it grows. This country Mum is all about making sure kids get their wholesome fill, volunteering with other mums at Dunalley Primary School to provide a home cooked non-processed lunch one day a week in between raising three little cuties with fisherman husband Brendan and whipping up a children’s cook book.
The book is available on Ellie’s website and pre-launch books are mailed anywhere in Australia for free with a complimentary pack of 4 gift cards. For $29, you won’t find better country value before October 16.
Enjoy and make as much mess as you can!
