Review by Delia on 23rd June, 2011
5 stars "Turned me into a foodie :) "

I am one of those people who makes food the same way for years. Until a friend of mine lent me this book which she had got from the library. “I had to buy it!” she said. I spent the next week making something from it every night!. This book is awesome the food is LOCAL and listed in SEASONAL order meaning you can actually find the items in your local shop and cook fantastic fresh food whilst keeping the spend down. Unlike many cookbooks from overseas. I had to buy one now too :) and I just hope it arrives in time for tomorrow nights dinner.. No more “spag bol” for us!!

5 stars "So great to easily access current season produce recipes - yumm "

I had this book given to me by my daughter and bought it for a gift as a result. The seasonal recipes are so helpful to access and purchase produce – it is a no brainer. Every recipe I have used so far has been successful. Well done Angela, looking forward to being in Auckland and visiting Ripe.

5 stars "Fantastic book with lots of interesting dishes"

Am really enjoying the recipes in this book. It is set out in 2 month sections so easy to cook seasonally. Great new salad recipes especially for this time of year when you want to take something different when you go out.

Thank you Mighty Ape for your responsive and efficient delivery.

5 stars "Looking forward to the sequel"

Got this out of the library and made so many delicious things that we decided to buy our own copy. Particularly like that the recipes are arranged according to the New Zealand seasonal produce, and that the ingredients are easily available and affordable.

From basics like basil pesto through to sticky spare ribs and saucy chocolate pudding, Ripe Recipes offers a unique, contemporary collection of dishes perfect for everyday cooking. Key points: uses fresh, seasonal produce to create the dishes; offers a unique and contemporary range of recipes; features a beautiful blend of illustration and photography complementing the recipes


Smoked Fish and Asparagus Salad (pictured left)
A delicious salad to make with your favourite smoked fish. We use a lot of smoked fish from the Coromandel Smoking Co. Its vacuum packed, a good keeper, and can be bought on-line.

Serve with a big bowl of steaming buttered new potatoes and sweet corn cobs.
Serves 4–6

500g ASPARAGUS SPEARS, trim woody ends and slice in half on an angle
500g of good quality, SMOKED FISH (snapper, trevally, mackerel are good)
½ RED ONION, finely sliced
1 cup (165g) KALAMATA OLIVES
³⁄4 cup of DILL DRESSING (see pg 202)
½ cup of FRESH ITALIAN PARSLEY, roughly chopped
4 EGGS, hard boiled, shelled and quartered
garnish with FRESH DILL

Bring a saucepan of water to boil and blanch the asparagus for approximately 40 seconds, remove with a slotted spoon and refresh in iced cold water. Drain and set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, shred the smoked fish, add the red onion, olives, asparagus, dressing and parsley. Season with salt and pepper and toss gently.

Place on a serving dish and arrange the eggs over the salad. Finish with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice and dill to garnish.

Chilli Prawn Spaghetti (pictured left)

This can be served hot or cold. Serve with a fresh salad from The Green Room.
Serves 4

250g dried SPAGHETTI
8 cloves GARLIC, peeled and finely sliced
2 fresh RED CHILLIES, finely sliced with seeds removed if a milder taste is preferred, or ½-1 tsp chilli flakes
200g FRESH PRAWNS, tail on
1×250g punnet of CHERRY TOMATOES, halved
½ whole PRESERVED LEMON, finely chopped (optional)
1 AVOCADO, skin and stone removed, cut into bite sized wedges
½ cup FRESH ITALIAN PARSLEY, roughly chopped

Cook the spaghetti as per the instructions on the packet and set aside to cool if serving salad cold.

Place the olive oil in a frying pan over a high heat and add the garlic and chilli. Cook for 1 minute taking care not to burn the garlic.

Add the butter and prawns. Cook until they have changed colour. Remove from the heat.

In a large serving bowl place the cooked prawns, spaghetti, cherry tomatoes, lemon juice, lemon zest and preserved lemon. Toss well to combine and season to taste with salt and pepper. dd the avocado wedges, toss through gently. Sprinkle over the parsley and serve.
