Cooking 4 Change - 101 famous Kiwis share their favourite recipes product reviews

Proud to promote NZ productsCooking 4 Change is the brainchild of celebrated New Zealand artist Dick Frizzell, his business partner Christian Kasper and TV host Erin Simpson.

They asked a wide range of New Zealand celebrities to share their all-time favourite dishes in order to raise money for longstanding local charities Paw Justice, Leukaemia and Blood Cancer New Zealand, Starship Foundation and Auckland City Mission. What resulted is a diverse selection of recipes and intimate cooking stories from a raft of our favourite personalities who want to make a difference.

The recipes and stories are accompanied by sumptuous photography, mostly taken inside each celebrity's own kitchen. In true New Zealand style, Cooking 4 Change showcases the amazing results Kiwis can achieve when we all work together and give back to some of our hardest-working charities.

If you only buy ONE cookbook this year... make it this one.

Over a hundred famous, semi-famous and "who?!" Kiwis share some of their most beloved recipes in a good cause - well, multiple good causes actually. And what stunning recipes they are... everything from lemon curd (Thanks Jon's [Grand]Mum!) to Artichokes in a Vinaigrette (Cheers, Kerre.) - breakfasts, lunches, dinners both wholesome and fancy, every level of posh from rustic to formal... and plenty of desserts and even preserves. I was beside myself with inspiration... which is why I took Jon's Lemon Curd recipe and put my own spin on it, creating three golden jars of Orange & Lemon Curd! Thanks to a neighbour who refuses to trim their Mandarin tree - which I am utterly grateful for - my next experimental outing will be a Lemon & Mandarin Curd I think.

With the few oranges I have left over, I am planning on making the "Super Simple Orange Cake" recipe on Page 451... because it looks amazing, and I simply MUST discover how including orange skins in a cake can come out looking as good as the photos, and tasting as good as I have been told. It's one of those counter-intuitive things in life you simply must experience for yourself because it sounds utterly bonkers. Grin Icon

Now, don't get me wrong when I say this, but I did find that well over half the recipes in this book either didn't suit my tastes, used ingredients I either have issues with or simply can't afford, or just plain sounded impossible for me to enjoy for any number of reasons... yet even taking that into account this one book had well over 40 recipes that I fully plan to try and make at least once in the next year or so. So... at $50 for the book, you could say that each recipe I try will cost me $1.02 - which is pretty good really. If you had no issues with even a single recipe, you would find this book to be awesome value at about 49c per recipe. Still more than a 5-min Google hunt would cost you, obviously... but the "good cause" clause kicks in and you can't help but see that buying this book is a darned smart idea.

Overall, I have tossed out nearly all my old cookbooks now - I haven't touched them in over 5 years, so don't need them. This book is all I need for the next few years at least!

Product reviews for listing 2528: Gone
Written by Mo Hayder

Product image for GoneIn Gone, Hayder's seventh novel, and the fifth to feature her popular murder detective Jack Caffrey, the scene is set in early winter, in the West Country. Caffrey is brought in to interview the victim of a car-jacking. So far, so routine. But this incident is different. This time the car was taken by force, and on the back seat was a passenger, an eleven year old girl. She is still missing.

Before long the jacker himself starts to ... more...
