Mums only want the best for their families. But Kirianna Poole didn’t find that in a big house in the middle of suburbia. Instead, she’s spent five years travelling with her husband and three kids in their vintage Kombi.
Life travels slowly in an old campervan, and for Kirianna, that means lots of time to dream up simple, hearty food that’s perfect for cooking while camping. Schooled in her Dad’s restaurants and inspired by a slow-paced life, she knows that good food is the foundation of awesome family adventures.
From the small burner in her van or a campfire at camp, Kirianna’s simple, delicious and wholesome recipes are perfect for families who want to eat better outdoors. Forget two-minute noodles; The Slow Road Cookbook is filled with the meals she grew up with in a Māori family in New Zealand, flavours she’s savoured around the world, and camping classics born in the Aussie bush. With over 80 recipes, and chapters covering meat, chicken, seafood, desserts, breakfasts, and even some sneaky cocktails, you’ll never lack for choice.
With a baby strapped to her chest and two barefooted kids exploring around her, this is food for families who crave a slower life, more connection with people, the land, and, just as importantly, themselves.
