    Yvette van Boven splits her time between Amsterdam and Paris. She is a freelance food stylist and recipe writer and runs a restaurant and catering business with her cousin in Amsterdam. She also illustrates books and magazines. She is the author of the critically acclaimed Home Made and Home Made Winter.
    Home Made and Home Made Winter blew readers away with their stunning packages, delicious recipes, beautiful photos, step-by-step instructions, and hand-drawn artwork throughout. Now, inHome Made Summer, Yvette van Boven takes the same signature approach and presents her absolute favorite recipes for spring and summer. Inspired by her childhood in Ireland and her frequent sojourns in France, van Boven has created a collection of recipes that will truly inspire 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, and Dessert.

    Praise for Home Made Summer:

    Think of van Boven as the activities director of your own culinary summer camp . . .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.”
    New York Times Book Review

    In the last two years, she has published three cookbooks, Home Made, Home Made Winter andHome 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 creme fraiche and berries in
    lieu of syrup).” LA Weekly

    It’s tough to overlook the stunning savory dishes and focus on dessert, but dessert does not disappoint. We’ve chosen recipes that aim to mimic van Boven’s aesthetic: making the most of what’s freshest, and sharing it with those you love.”Serious Eats

    Think of van Boven as the activities director of your own culinary summer camp.” New York Times

    Yvette’s attitude, like her recipes, is lighthearted and friendly, her header notes charmingly personal, and her thorough instructions chatty and fun.” BookPage.com
