If I wanted to cook an extra special dinner that was super fresh, ultra healthy, and drop-dead gorgeous (yet simple at the same time), I would turn to no other cookbook than Malibu Farm Cookbook by the very talented Helene Henderson.
Named for her restaurant at the end of a pier in Southern California with breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean, this cookbook is everything I'd hoped it would be. Diverse. Clear. Unique. And visually stunning.
I couldn't decide which recipe to try first. Ricotta and Pea Frittata? Butterfly Beef Tenderloin with Horseradish? Seared Fava Beans? Or Grilled Chocolate Cake with Caramel Sauce? In the end, I chose all three to create a dinner to-die-for.
I would definitely recommend this beautiful book for either yourself or as a wonderful hostess gift. It will be treasured by whoever reads it!
