THE GREAT NEW ZEALAND COOK­BOOK

I chose this be­cause I’m ab­so­lutely ob­sessed with food. Sit­ting in the sun with a glass of some­thing cold and por­ing through a cook­book is my idea of heaven. Some­times I won’t even cook any­thing from a book for months af­ter I’ve read it. But I dream about flavours and fan­ta­sise about in­gre­di­ents, and ev­ery once in a while the stars will align and I’ll give a new recipe a go. I love this one be­cause it in­cludes lots of my culi­nary (and broad­cast­ing) he­roes, like Peta Mathias, Al Brown and Fleur Sul­li­van. Plus there are hunters, grow­ers and mag­i­cal char­ac­ters from around Aotearoa. There are recipes for ev­ery­thing from Spaghetti Pies to Manuka Smoked Veni­son with Black­ber­ries & Horo­pito. It hasn’t just in­spired my cook­ing; it has also en­cour­aged me to add to my lit­tle li­brary of New Zealand recipe books.
