"A grab bag of summer flavors and dishes . . . Think of van Boven as the activities director of your own culinary summer camp." —The New York Times

The author of Home Made and Home Made Winter returns with a new cookbook filled with tasty recipes, beautiful photos, clear instructions, and hand-drawn artwork throughout. Home Made Summer presents her absolute favorite recipes for spring and summer. Inspired by her childhood in Ireland and her summers in Provence, van Boven has created a collection sure to tempt you to step into the kitchen. Using seasonal ingredients, such as freshly picked apples and berries, delicate summer lettuces and fresh herbs, she presents recipes for Breakfast, Brunch & Lunch, Snacks, Beverages, Appetizers, Main Courses, and Dessert.

"Home Made Summer is a happy book, fun to look at, fun to read. It's downright frivolous, in fact. And that's what summer is all about." —The New York Times Book Review

"In the last two years, she has published three cookbooks, Home Made, Home Made Winter and Home Made Summer, that exemplify the indie spirit: They're filled with her illustrations and do-it-yourself recipes, like hand-cranked ice cream, from-scratch mustards and Dutch-style beef sausages and croquettes." —Food & Wine

"Flipping through the pages feels a bit like stepping into a fantasy land, one with jars and jars of citrusy-tomato mayonnaise awaiting crab cakes and stacks of powdered sugar-dusted 'ultimate puffy pancakes' (topped with crème fraîche and berries in lieu of syrup)." —LA Weekly

"Stunning savory dishes." —Serious Eats

"Yvette's attitude, like her recipes, is lighthearted and friendly, her header notes charmingly personal, and her thorough instructions chatty and fun." —BookPage
