Book Review: Brown Eggs & Jam Jars

By Julie Van Rosendaal on February 17, 2015

Urban homesteaders will be inspired by award-winning food blogger Aimée Wimbush-Bourque’s much anticipated first cookbook, Brown Eggs and Jam Jars: Family Recipes from the Kitchen of Simple Bites (Penguin). Having once worked in a restaurant kitchen, Aimée traded in her chef whites for gardening gloves and a laptop and began documenting home life with her husband, Danny, and now three young children on an acreage outside Montreal on her popular food blog, Simple Bites. She has successfully tapped into the trend of what’s old is new again, talking backyard gardens, raising chickens and putting up preserves, and making real food accessible, even with a busy family life. Brown Eggs and Jam Jars expands on this concept, sharing over 100 recipes and inspiring readers to gather around the family table, celebrating each season with helpful tips, engaging stories, and real food served up with a touch of nostalgia and a lot of love.
