Combined with stunning food photography and beautiful on-location shots from around the country, this is the perfect gift for every lover of New Zealand. Eat Up New Zealand honors the past with updated Kiwi classics like roast lamb, pies, flounder, corned beef, pikelets, cheese scones, feijoa and tamarillo desserts, preserves, and much more. Al's approach is to start with great seasonal produce, cook it simply and add a flavor punch, texture and garnish to take it to another level. It's clever, simple, and yet refined food that is inherently Kiwi. Al believes there's no need for gimmicks as long as you respect the huge flavor that naturally occurs in produce. These are accessible, generous recipes that everyone will love, for both everyday cooking and for entertaining. Includes dual measures.
