As the granddaughter of the illustrious author Ernest Hemingway, Mariel Hemingway was destined to be in the public eye. But at just thirteen years old, Mariel became famous in her own right as she made her feature film debut in Lipstick. Four years later, she earned an Oscar nomination for her role in Woody Allen’s film Manhattan. Mariel is an actress, model, yoga instructor, mother of two teenage girls, and one of the leading voices for holistic and balanced living.
Mariel’s 2006 book, Healthy Living From the Inside Out was widely received for its balanced and simple approach to food and lifestyle. Her new book, Mariel’s Kitchen (HarperOne, May 2009) is filled with exciting, beautiful photographs and easy-to-follow instructions, Mariel’s Kitchen includes seventy-five sensational recipes that can be mastered by anyone, regardless of cooking experience. Arranged according to the seasons, these recipes show how simple it can be to put locally grown, seasonal produce on your table in place of packaged and processed foods. From sublime summer breakfasts to delectable desserts and heartwarming winter dinners, these tasty dishes, snacks, salad dressings, marinades, and drink recipes put homemade eating back into easy reach.
Mariel also shares her secrets that make it possible to eat well all week long, even with a full schedule. She reveals what staples are necessary for any pantry and how to prepare core recipes that become the foundation for multiple dishes. She offers shopping tips for navigating the world of organic and sustainable foods. And as she reveals what makes her kitchen “the heart of her home,” she peppers recipes with stories about her own lifelong love affair with food.
Combining Mariel’s no-nonsense attitude with wholesome recipes for every occasion, Mariel’s Kitchen is a new kind of American cookbook designed to help you—and all those you cook for—eat better, fresher, and more delicious foods, day in and day out.
