A new cookbook lets you in on the culinary secrets of some well-known New Zealand celebrities.
Cooking 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.
