The Great NZ Cookbook Review
"..For our population New Zealand produces an amazing amount of cookbooks
each year! Many of them come across my desk, but sadly most never make it to the
kitchen or beyond the growing pile in the corner of my office. So when The Great
New Zealand Cookbook arrived on my doorstep, I grabbed a cup of coffee and sat
down to have a peruse. One hour later and with a huge smile on my face I got to
the end of it, only to want to go back to the beginning with some bookmarks and
to list the recipes I wanted to try.
This book is a tomb of New Zealand food. The 400 plus pages, include
190 recipes from 80 of our countries best chefs, cooks and bakers from across
the country. It’s a glorious and fun read as you get a snapshot into these
people’s lives and their culinary inspiration.
Unlike most collaborative books with chefs which recipes are only for the
advanced or adventurous cook, the recipes in The Great New Zealand Cookbook are
more often than not those classics that evoke memories or tell a story of what
real Kiwi food is. This makes for not only an enjoyable read but a cookbook of
recipes you know you will cook, from Alison Holst’s Pavlova or Piklet recipes
to Josh Emmet’s Agria Potato & Celeriac Gratin.
…The Great New Zealand Cookbook benefits kiwi charity KidsCan, which
will receive a portion of the proceeds to fund a new initiative that will expand
their ‘Food for Kids’ programme through the establishment of KidsCan
Orchards in schools.
I can’t recommend this book more. It is akin to the Edmonds Cookbook a
compulsory addition to every Kiwi household."
