Season 3 of Ladies of London is finished, and now each of the women are doing their separate thing, often on other parts of the globe. Marissa Hermer is currently in Los Angeles with her family, and last month I had the chance to ask her about her upcoming cookbook An American Girl in London: 120 Nourishing Recipes for Your Family from a Californian Expat. Our video of Hermer is available after the jump!
The recipes are a blend of Hermer’s own healthy California lifestyle as well as the British comfort food that her husband and family also enjoy. The inspiring aspect behind the cookbook is that it was actually made during Hermer’s challenging pregnancy, while she was on and off bedrest for seven months due to placenta accreta.
“I wanted to nurture my family,” says Hermer. “I was feeling like I wanted to be maternal, and for me that’s cooking and feeding my family. I ended up cooking a lot and putting recipes together. And that’s what the book is.”
Hermer’s full answer to the cookbook question is below:
