BOOK REVIEW: YVESTOWN IN THE KITCHEN

yvestownindekeuken2

You might know Yvonne Eijkenduijn from her well-known blog Yvestown where she shares cooking, baking, gardening, crafting, decorating, and DIY tips. This multi-talented lady recently launched her first book “Yvestown in the Kitchen”. Yvonne believes love of food is not only a love of cooking, but also a love of the kitchen in which the food is prepared. She therefore asked some of her friends to share their favorite recipes and to give (the readers) a tour through their kitchens and dining areas. This makes the book both a cookbook as well as an interior lifestyle book. A combination I love! The delicious (easy to make ) recipes, the colorful photography and the beautiful interiors make this book as source of inspiration. One of my favorite chapters in the book is the one about Annemie & Jan. Their outdoor kitchen, which is featured in this post, is very inviting! Yvestown in the Kitchen is available from Amazon. There is also a Dutch version (Yvestown in de Keuken) which you can get here and here.
