FOOD FOR THOUGHT
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.
