Deliciously Ella with Friends is a cookbook by blogger and businesswoman, Ella Woodward, based around plates for sharing and serving up for groups.
Deliciously Ella With Friends is full of great recipes, with beautiful photographs, The recipes are great for sharing, and many of them can actually be created ahead of time, so hosting doesn’t mean hiding in the kitchen. I found the recipes easy to follow, they were reasonably simple. There’s a good range of meals, snacks and treats, so you’ve got all the bits you’d need for hosting.
The recipes are all very healthy and well balanced, packed with nutrients. The fresher the ingredients, the better the taste. The recipes are full of lots of yummy ingredients, with each mouthful full of flavours, where you can really taste those fresh ingredients.
Some of the recipes do rely on lots of new ingredients that aren’t home staples at my place, however the ingredients are used throughout the book and there is also references to leftovers which you can use directly in other recipes.
I did indeed serve these up to share with friends and the only thing I wasn’t sure on was the serving sizes. If you’re serving these up for friends when cooking them for the first time, I’d recommend you make extra, lots of recipes, or just take a lot through the ingredients to see if that’s enough for you.
