I love that Lau­raine Ja­cobs will tell you that you need to eat im­ported food. Yes, lo­cal eat­ing is at the heart of her think­ing, but Ja­cobs is in it for the long haul and al­ways has been. Wher­ever you go in New Zealand in search of great food or drink, Ja­cobs has been there or is about to go there. She’ll be the first per­son to tell you that if you want to be at the cut­ting edge of what’s hap­pen­ing you need to roll up your sleeves and get right into it! And so her lat­est cook­book Al­ways De­li­cious be­comes a bit of a na­tional trea­sure: a com­pi­la­tion of more than 100 of her favourite recipes gath­ered from her long-run­ning food col­umn in the New Zealand Lis­tener and prov­ing once and for all that a good recipe stands the test of time. You’ll find some beau­ties in here, tried and tested not only by Ja­cobs but by a mul­ti­tude of New Zealand food lovers around the coun­try. Ja­cobs has built this fan base across an im­pres­sive ca­reer that in­cluded the role of food edi­tor for Cui­sine magazine un­til 2009. A fab­u­lous book filled with use­ful tips, fas­ci­nat­ing food talk and beau­ti­ful pho­to­graphs (by Liz Clark­son). Way too hard for me to pick a favourite recipe yet, but this book will stay close to hand on my kitchen bench. I know what­ever I choose will be al­ways de­li­cious. Good job Madge! KELLI BRETT
