One hundred classic recipes for cakes, slices, loaves, scones, tarts, muffins and friands from a star-studded list of New Zealand food writers.

Every great baker has his or her favourite recipes, and so when New Zealand’s best food writers and chefs were asked for theirs, they came up with a treasure-trove.

Designed as a book to treasure and to hand down through the generations, this beautifully packaged edition includes 100 recipes for cakes, slices, loaves, scones, tarts, muffins and friands from a star-studded list of food writers: Peta Mathias, Ray McVinnie, Tui Flower, Jo Seagar, Alison Holst, Julie le Clerc, Julie Buiso, Allyson Gofton, Catherine Bell, Kathy Paterson, Alexa Johnston, Annabelle White, Judith Cullen, Helen Browne, David Burton, Martin Bosley, Simon Wright, Natalia Schamroth and many, many more. The recipes include everything from glamour special-occasion cakes to everyday fill-the-tins reliables.

Every recipe was tested and baked especially for this project by well-known international baker and author Dean Brettschneider, and photographed by Aaron McLean. Best of all, all royalties go the Breast Cancer Foundation of New Zealand. The book is edited by author, food judge, Cuisine food editor and New Zealand food ambassador extraordinaire, Lauraine Jacobs.
