Rugby stars share recipes

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

Look at some rugby play­ers and you might think they live on a diet solely of mam­moth chops and por­ridge.

But it turns out a lot of the coun­try’s top play­ers, past and present, are pretty nifty in the kitchen.

A new book pub­lished to raise money for the New Zealand Rugby Foun­da­tion show­cases the recipes of top play­ers in­clud­ing cur­rent stars Richie McCaw and Dan Carter, as well as older leg­ends Colin Meads and Bryan Wil­liams.

The Rugby Foun­da­tion sup­ports cat­a­stroph­i­cally in­jured rugby play­ers fi­nan­cially and emo­tion­ally through fundrais­ing and other ac­tiv­i­ties, and works with the New Zealand Rugby Union to com­mu­ni­cate the safe­ty­first mes­sage.

NZ Rugby Kitchen also marks the rugby foun­da­tion’s 25-year an­niver­sary.

Recipes in­clude Con­rad Smith’s Roasted Snap­per with Is­raeli Cous Cous, David Kirk’s Rab­bit Stew, Jerry Collins’ Jam­bal­aya and An­thony Boric’s Seafood Chow­der.

Cook­ing skills: An­thony Boric and Keven Mealamu have contributed to the NZ Rugby Kitchen cook­book and the Auck­land City Har­bour News is giv­ing away copies to two read­ers.
