Monica Trapaga knew exactly what to do when her daughter Lil announced she was leaving home: present her with a collection of tried-and-tested family recipes and stories. Drawing on her Spanish heritage, crazy family history and vast well of creativity, Monica gives us a recipe book replete with love and humour, along with ninety seriously good recipes, from the classics (roast beef, bolognese and brownies) to the exotic (paella, san choi bao and gazpacho). Beautifully illustrated with drawings from artist Meredith Gaston and Monica's own collages, this precious manual of culinary inspiration and sound practical advice is a must-have for any girl about to embark on her own life journey.
