    When Joey Campanaro opened Little Owl in Greenwich Village, he wanted to create a neighbourhood restaurant that focused on 'big love' cooking over trends. Joey defines 'big love' as 'return to kindness, compassion, simplicity, humility, and authenticity.' This mentality has served Joey well. Now, more than 10 years and 3 New York restaurants later, Joey has garnered his own press love and established a network of food friends, including Martha Stewart, Tom Colicchio, Jonathan Waxman, and Calvin Trillin (Little Owl regular), to help launch his first cookbook. Warm and inviting, Big Love Cooking is an ode to the generous, comforting dishes found at Little Owl. With 75 recipes inspired by the menu and Joey’s Italian-American heritage, platters include Gravy Meatball Slider Buns, Pork Chop with Parmesan Butter Beans, Ricotta Cavatelli with Tomato Broth, Bacon, and Fava Beans – accessible, delicious meals to make at home and serve to loved ones. Recreating a piece of the restaurant with an emphasis on the family table, recipes are enriched with stories from Little Owl and Joey’s childhood in South Philly. With helpful, conversational advice and crowd-pleasing recipes, Big Love Cooking is a return to hearty platters and comfort food.

    What happens when an acclaimed Australian chef is asked to ditch his favourite fat-laden ingredients, forgo many of the rich Italian dishes he has spent 20 years perfecting, and remove gluten from his recipes? Well, because it's Georgia, the love of his life who's asking, he puts his heart and soul into changing the way they eat. With advice from fitness and nutrition guru Donna Aston, Georgia helped Tobie identify the changes they needed to make and get healthy. They created 100 recipes free of gluten, refined sugar and highly processed carbs, with a healthy amount of 'good' fats, lots of fresh fruit and vegetables and, above all, masses of flavour. From breakfast to lunches, dinners and dessert, this is how they eat now. 'This book is jam-packed with really delicious, honest, healthy food. Embrace it in your weekly routine and I'm sure you'll feel the benefits - I hope you love it as much as I do.' Jamie Oliver
