This September Louise Fulton Keats brings us Something for Everyone – a cookbook filled with nutritious, fresh and tasty dishes focused on feeding the family. Recipes contain variations for babies and toddlers, which require minimal adaptation but maximum flavour. Each chapter addresses a different mealtime with an additional section for delicious sweet treats and desserts. Matched with stunning photography and Louise’s inimitable, approachable style, Something for Everyone packs a nutritional punch that ensures no family member is left feeling hungry. Feeding the family will never be difficult again.

We take a sneak peek at one of Louise's favourite recipes.



Chicken with cherry tomatoes and butter beans

Serves 4

  • 4 chicken marylands
  • 6 desiree potatoes, skin on, thinly sliced using a mandoline
  • 4 small zucchini, thinly sliced using a mandoline
  • 1 brown onion, thinly sliced using a mandoline
  • 60 ml olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves, unpeeled
  • 2 rosemary sprigs
  • 12–18 truss cherry tomatoes
  • 400 g tin butter or cannellini beans, rinsed and drained

Preheat the oven to 180ºC. Heat a large non-stick frying pan (or flameproof baking dish which you can continue to use for cooking the vegetables) over high heat. Add the chicken and cook for 4–5 minutes on each side, or until golden brown. Set aside.

Arrange the potato, zucchini and onion slices evenly in the base of a large baking dish. Toss through 2 tablespoons of the olive oil and place the browned chicken, garlic and rosemary sprigs on top. Bake for 20 minutes, or until the chicken and potato are almost cooked.

Remove the dish from the oven and scatter over the tomatoes and beans. Drizzle over the remaining olive oil. Return the dish to the oven and bake for a further 5–10 minutes, or until the chicken and vegetables are cooked through.

Baby’s serve: for a younger baby, blend together some of the chicken (remove any bones), beans, vegetables and tomato until smooth, adding as much liquid (water or your baby’s milk) as needed to achieve the desired consistency. For an older baby, keep the puréed consistency more textured or simply chop up the chicken and serve as finger food.

Toddler’s serve: serve as is, chopping into smaller pieces as needed.

Something for Everybody by Louise Fulton Keats will be available on September 1.
