All the colour and excitement of café-style eating has been captured within these pages. Julie Le Clerc gives you the opportunity to recreate the pleasures of stylish café food in your own kitchen.
‘In a market awash with cookbooks, Le Clerc’s sure feel for flavours, texture and colour offers easy food that is a pleasure to make and eat. Some of her favourite recipes in the book are her colourful and flavoursome salads. It is easy to see why. They had me out shopping for ingredients within a day of browsing through the pages.’
Waikato Times, November 1999
‘Simple Café Food is full of recipes that look and taste wonderful… Sometimes professional cooks can have you believing that it’s hard to keep up with their flair, but these recipes are delicious and made with product, which is easily found. A Charming book.’
