Owner and chef Alex Tylee presides over the magical and beloved pink palace of Pipi café, with it’s poetry, eclectic china, and fabulous food. Pipi the Cookbook shows the Pipi philosophy: family, fun, nurturing, good simple seasonal food, and love. Alex is joined by Allyson Gofton who takes us on a tour of the experiences that led to her most recent cookbooks. For a little while we live and cook with her in the Hautes-Pyrénées where she spent a year with her family in a brave and wonderful wish to fulfil her husband’s dream of living in France so his children could speak a second language.

From providing meals and smoko to workers on the farm to Pipi Café; from the high Pyrénées mountain range in France to the back country farms of New Zealand, singular chefs Alex Tylee and Allyson Grofton will discuss the complex histories and tastes that drive food choices and cooking styles, as well as the particular challenges of making recipe choices for a cookbook.
