IF you only have room on your kitchen shelf for one cookbook this should be it.
Twelve of New Zealand’s top chefs have joined forces with the families of premature newborn babies to bring together a collection of recipes suitable for every occasion, and all in a good cause. All proceeds go to the Neonatal Trust a charity supporting over 6,000 families of premature and sick newborns each year.
The recipes are eclectic. If you want to impress there’s the manchego and ham quesadilla or truffled mushroom arancini. If you want a quick but tasty family munch try the macaroni cheese with frankfurters or the southern cheese rolls.
Some of the high profile chefs on board are Al Brown from Logan Brown, Rex Morgan from Boulcott Street Bistro and Laurent Loudeac from Hippopotamus. They provide the main recipe for each section matched with a suitable New Zealand beverage.
Each chapter then showcases recipes donated by friends of the Neonatal Trust with great photographs of each dish.
Available around Wellington cafes as well as Moore Wilson’s, Welcome Home is everything you could want in a cookbook.
