Real Food by Mike reminds us that we are what we eat – but that doesn't mean what we eat can't be delicious. Accompanied by full-color photography, this book from chef Mike McEnearney is perfect for health-conscious people who still adore things like pork belly and gooey French cheese.

The book is based around the idea of the physic garden, in which plants are included based on their medicinal benefits to the body – be that muscular (ginger, tumeric) gastroenterological (dill, oregano) or neurological (lemon, verbene, chamomile). The recipes, divided by season, are annotated with the medicinal plants used and their health benefits. Simply presented and easy to approach, these are recipes you'll want to cook and eat again and again.

MIKE MCENEARNEY is the former head chef of Sydney's Rockpool restaurant. His own ventures include the popular pop-up Mike's Table, and restaurants Kitchen By Mike and No. 1 Bent St in Sydney.

"Many of the recipes in the cookbook take just minutes to make, making them perfect to fit into busy weeks and the hustle of daily life. Each recipe has notes that explain the purpose and medicinal benefits of specific ingredients used; demonstrating that even just a little bit of extra understanding can have a wonderfully positive effect on overall health and well-being. Gorgeous photographs throughout bring to life delicious, satisfying recipes that are a far cry from the images of food most commonly associated with healthy eating."
-The Daily Meal

"Mike McEnearney's uncompromising approach to abiding by the seasons makes him utterly in tune with growing and cooking throughout the year. He also understands that our bodies work with a similar rhythm and that listening to what we want to eat can be a kind of preventative medicine. I admire his heartfelt approach to everything that he does, and I always know we are speaking the same language when we talk about real food!" -Alice Waters
