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.
