As a cook, food stylist, and photographer, Aran Goyoaga has earned fans around the globe who flock to her Instagram feed not only for delicious photos of food, but also for glimpses into her life. In this new book, Aran invites us into her kitchen to share her naturally gluten-free recipes, style, and ideas for nourishing herself, her family, and her friends. Aran's cooking mirrors her lifelong path to self-care which is all about simplicity and renewal. She believes in sharing daily meals with her family and inviting friends to gather without fuss. In uncertain times, she also finds joy and comfort in her kitchen where she prepares family-friendly modern foods that are free from the pressure of perfection and unnecessary steps and ingredients. Recipes take us through the day where you might start off with spicy carrot, grapefruit, and sunflower juice or soft-cooked eggs with greens and dukkah. For lunch, there is tomato, corn, and bread salad or peas and ham with buttermilk dressing. There are everyday dinners like spaghetti and meatballs or braised chicken with apples and cider, or something light like crispy chickpeas with rice, sweet potato, avocados, and greens. You'll also find a baking chapter with recipes for the kind of tender and delicious gluten-free baked goods Aran is known for, like sourdough bread, caramelized onion and fennel biscuits, and apple tarte tatin (and flour substitutions for those who aren't gluten-free). There is also a special chapter with complete menus for larger gatherings and another with suggestions and ideas for making your home a welcoming space with flowers, linens, tableware, lighting, and music. Everything comes together with ease in the kitchen and around the table in this gorgeous cookbook that also includes over 100 photos shot and styled by Aran.
