Kiwi chefs rein­ter­pret scenes from renowned New Zealand writ­ers

THE MOST POW­ER­FUL STO­RIES are im­bued with a strong sense of time and place, per­suad­ing the reader into an imag­i­nary land­scape where, for a time at least, they live an­other life. In fiction, food can be a tool that con­jures up place, evokes the mood and fur­nishes a mil­lion metaphors: love, dis­ap­point­ment, long­ing, home­sick­ness and fam­ily – all can be told by who was eat­ing what, how, why, when and with whom. Some­times food is the plot, the sto­ry­line and the hero. Other times a mere men­tion, just a whiff or a taste, tells you a per­son’s en­tire per­son­al­ity and life ex­pe­ri­ence. Four in­ven­tive NZ chefs give their culi­nary in­ter­pre­ta­tions of tasty ex­tracts from works by four renowned New Zealand au­thors.

RENOWNED NEW ZEALAND WRIT­ERS IN­SPIRE KIWI CHEFS TO REIMAGINE FIC­TIONAL FOOD MO­MENTS.
