A mother, a wife, a cook, and a photographer, Marina Delio has it all, and she empowers fellow moms to realize that they can have it all too. Teaching by example, Delio proves that it is possible for women to put deceptively simple and delicious dishes on the dinner table for their families while holding on to their style and grace, even in the most unglamorous times. In 2009 Delio created YummyMummyKitchen.com as a way to document her mostly meatless recipes, as well as her tips for a lovely lifestyle, and share them with her friends and family. Her little blog quickly turned into a popular website that now receives over 110,000 page views a month.
Far from a traditional cookbook, Delio’s recipes are infused with a “Yummy Mummy” ideology. Inspired by Delio’s British grandmother, the original Yummy Mummy, who is still very chic, shops at the farmer’s market, eats well, and exercises at ninety-two years old, Delio strives to be her own version of a modern day mummy: a woman who feeds her family effortless and wholesome meals, and looks beautiful and sophisticated while doing it.
A gorgeously designed package with recipes for every meal of the day and lifestyle tips, The Yummy Mummy Kitchen will show readers that mealtime can not only be easy and stress-free but a time to relish, create, bond with family, and to feel good about themselves. Modern moms can be both Mummy and Yummy, and it doesn’t have to be difficult or time-consuming.
