Lately it seems that everyone is baking their own bread, canning preserves, or curing meat at home. If this has always been a bit intimidating—if still inspiring!-then this new DIY cookbook is tailor-made for you. Home Made by Yvette van Boven features more than 200 easy DIY recipes using simple fresh ingredients—no fancy single-use equipment required.

Learn how to make cheese from pantry staples or ice cream without a machine! How about making an oven smoker from scratch in just two minutes? In Home Made, Yvette van Boven shows you how, complete with an irreverent voice, step-by-step photos and illustrations, and a gorgeous photo alongside every recipe.

Chapters include Preserving Vegetables, Pre-Dinner Drinks, Chocolate and Cookies, After a Night Out, Ice-Cream-You-Scream, Don't Forget the Dog!, and more. Each chapter starts with a basic dish that you can make yourself but usually don't because you think it's too complicated (think again!)—and includes variations; basic bread becomes focaccia with olives and rosemary, or red cherry and thyme bread. There's even a chapter on Cocktails and Liqueurs, which gives you the power to make dazzlingly unique concoctions. You will be surprised at how easy it is to make your own batch of vermouth or hazelnut liqueur!

Perfect for the home cook looking to add a little more authenticity to meals, these recipes can also add a little more luxury to life (without the usual associated costs). With gorgeous hand-drawn illustrations and easy-to-follow instructions, Home Made will inspire you to make every dish at home.
