WHAT'S FOR PUDDING - BOOK LAUNCH WITH A DIFFERENCE
A large crowd of friends, family and admirers packed into Ponsonby restaurant Sunday Painters for the launch of Alexa Johnston's latest, What's For Pudding ,(Penguin Books-$50).
Chef/author Johnston did the catering herself and treated us all to a dazzling and delicious array of puddings from the book.
