Pur­chase cook­book and en­ter prize draw

Central Otago Mirror - - NEWS -

Sunny days, great food, spec­tac­u­lar scenery and in­trigu­ing his­tory abounds in Cen­tral Otago, and to high­light all the su­perb things which this re­gion has to of­fer now comes a Cook book cour­tesy of the Tin Goose Cafe´ ’s Jeanie Wat­son.

Jeanie says it has al­ways been a priv­i­lege to live in Cen­tral Otago with the life­style and at­trac­tions it of­fers, and whether it’s for per­ma­nent res­i­dents or trav­ellers pass­ing through, there is some­thing for ev­ery­one to en­joy. From the or­chards with its se­lec­tion of fruit through to the vine­yards, bou­tique winer­ies, and tourism ac­tiv­i­ties of­fer­ing ev­ery­thing from se­date ac­tiv­i­ties to scenic 4WD trips, or the adrenalin rush of ski­ing or moun­tain bik­ing, it’s a great area to live in or visit.

Jeanie Wat­son’ s cook­book , ’The Tin Goose Cafe´ Cook­book’ is a tribute and tes­ti­mony to all that is great about Cen­tral Otago and with its pub­li­ca­tion, she has now ful­filled a long­time dream of pub­lish­ing a cook­book, the re­gion and what it pro­duces, in­spir­ing her recipes.

"It’s some­thing I have wanted to do for years and years and years," she said. "This dream has now be­come a re­al­ity."

The books are cur­rently avail­able at each of the Cen­tral Otago cafes, and at 93 re­tail out­lets across New Zealand and off­shore in Sin­ga­pore and Aus­tralia, pro­mot­ing not only the de­li­cious con­tents, but also Jeanie’s phi­los­o­phy of sim­ple fresh food with a lo­cal flavour.

The pub­li­ca­tion it­self is ’true blue’ Cen­tral Otago, with the credit for the stun­ning pho­to­graphs in­cluded in the pub­li­ca­tion, at­trib­uted to Ban­nock­burn pho­tog­ra­pher Suellen Boag, the edit­ing by Jenny McLeod of Queen­stown, and its de­sign by Scott Conway of Feast De­sign in Queen­stown.

The Cook book opens with a recipe for ’Turk­ish Bread with Tomato Herb Fill­ing’ and fin­ishes with ’Tin Goose Brownie’.

In­ter­spersed with these are taste­bud tin­gling cre­ations such as ’Ku­mara and Mes­cu­lun Salad’, ’Salmon Mousse with Av­o­cado’, ’Steak Salad’ and ’Co­conut Ice’.

Jeanie says that all the recipes are ’her recipes’, some with a quirky adap­ta­tion but all with a Jeanie Wat­son mark on them. Take for ex­am­ple, her An­zac Bis­cuits.

Al­ways a favourite, Jeanie now has these avail­able for sale pack­aged as the ’dry in­gre­di­ents’ in an at­trac­tive jar, which then just have to have the liq­uid added, the mix­ture cooked, and then they are ready to be eaten.

How in­no­va­tive is that? Just in time for Moth­ers Day is the chance to pur­chase the beau­ti­ful ‘Tin Goose Cafe´ Cook­book’ pro­duced by Jeanie Wat­son.

Not only will ev­ery Mother love the cook­book, (and the recipes in­cluded) but with this pur­chase comes the op­por­tu­nity to re­ceive one of Wat­son’s cre­ative and per­son­ally de­signed tea tow­els, and the chance to go in the draw for one of two very fan­tas­tic and ap­peal­ing prizes.

Au­thor of the ’Tin Goose Cafe´ Cook­book’, Jeanie Wat­son, will come to your home and cook a 3-course meal for the win­ner and 5 friends. This meal will in­clude ’Two Pad­docks’ and ’Quartz Reef’ wines.

Choose two recipes from amongst those in­cluded in the ’Tin Goose Cafe´ Cook­book’ and Jeanie Wat­son will cook them for you and a friend at one of the ’Tin Goose’ cafes (Frank­ton, Cromwell or Alexandra), and en­joy a glass of wine and some nib­bles while you wait, watch, learn and en­joy.

Books are avail­able for pur­chase at Book Stores across Cen­tral Otago (and be­yond) and all Tin Goose Cafe´ s along with the en­try forms for the competition.

Each year, Jeanie Wat­son de­signs and pro­duces two ’lim­ited edi­tion’ tea tow­els. On each of these tea tow­els is fea­tured one of Jeanie’s tasty recipes which she has cre­ated and utilised in her cafes.

Al­ready the next tea towel is planned and pro­duced, and with it comes a recipe for ’Cho­co­lat et cake a l’orange’ (French for ’Chocolate Orange Cake’).

But what is even more ex­cit­ing is the knowl­edge that this recipe / tea towel her­alds the ini­tial work for her sec­ond recipe book which is planned for pub­li­ca­tion later this year in time for Christ­mas.
