Coromandel Flavour - an invitation
A Year of Cooking at the Bach by Deborah Hide-Bayne
"Summertime and the living is easy. Is there anything
better than that first really warm day when you kick back, put your feet up
and truly relax?"
That is the quintessential kiwi summer, and that is just one season
of Coromandel Flavour - A Year of Cooking at the Bach. A lovely brand-new
book by Deborah Hide-Bayne, a travelling artist who passed through the
Coromandel expecting nothing more than holiday memories, instead she found
a lifestyle that stopped her in her tracks. Some years later and
she's a local, married with a young son, an orchard at her door and a view
of bush-clad hills behind her cottage. A Recipe Book , an Artists
Scrapbook, that is Coromandel Flavour.
Sunday 9 December, 2012; anytime from 3.30pm - 6.30pm! Cook the Books - The Cookbook Store & Kitchen 139 Richmond Rd (corner Norfolk St) Grey Lynn - Auckland Please note this is a free event, though we would appreciate an RSVP for catering purposes. RSVP via website
