Half Baked Harvest Cookbook by Tieghan Gerard is a beautiful, down-to-earth, simple comfort food bible that can be enjoyed every day of the week. With recipes first crafted by Tieghan while growing up in the Colorado mountains, the food and joy that fill her cookbook’s pages reach deep into your culinary imagination with a big hug.
Growing up as one of seven children, Tieghan began cooking at just 15 years old, finding new ways to combine wholesome ingredients into irresistible plates and platters for the whole family.
Her cookbook transports her unique take on food from faraway natural paradise straight into your kitchen. Standing next to you is an imaginary assistant, helping recreate the goodness of mountain living, with fresh ingredients and fabulous flavours.
If you can’t imagine what it’s like living and cooking in a barn in the mountains, Half Baked Harvest will guide you through all the staples you need for the pantry, fridge and freezer, sprinkled with first-hand tips like night-before prep and tried and tested ways to get the maximum flavour out of what you cook with minimum fuss.
With thousands of fans following Tieghan’s food blog and now her cookbook becoming a New York Times bestseller, millions of foodies have fallen in love with the farm to table goodness of dishing up a Half Baked Harvest. And she just makes everything so easy to do yourself.
The book is packed with beautiful full-page photos and sectioned by the way we eat every day: basics, breakfast and brunch, appetisers and sides, vegetarian, poultry and pork, beef and lamb, dessert, and more. It even features icons in many of the recipes to indicate various cooking options for stovetop, pressure cooker or slow cooker adaptations of her creations.
There are so many delicious recipes to work through but some simply stand out as ones you can’t wait to make.
Our picks include Blueberry Lemon Pull-apart Bread, Pumpkin Butter Crème Fraîche Pancakes, Balsamic Peach and Brie Tart, Coconut Chicken Tikka Masala, and Slow-roasted Moroccan Salmon. And you can swill it all down with some Honeycrisp Apple Bourbon Smash.
Feeling a little full? It’s not over yet, with sweet endings that include Fudgy Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream Pretzel Cake and Death By Chocolate Icebox Cake. Be still my chocoholic heart!
Half Baked Harvest Cookbook is a treasure chest of treats worthy of some space on the top shelf of your bookcase, where your old faithfuls sit with jagged edges formed by post-it notes and bookmarks.
