Al Brown is an iconic New Zealand chef, much loved for his restaurant Depot, his Best Ugly bagel shops, his best-selling books Go Fish and Stoked among others and his groundbreaking approach to New Zealand food. He's a leader and a cheerleader for New Zealand produce and cooking.

Al will be touring in October to introduce his new book “Eat Up New Zealand”. Come and hear Al chat about what makes our local cuisine special, and get him to sign a copy of his new cookbook. A great afternoon with a talk followed by Mount Edward Wine and Nibbles.

“Eat Up New Zealand”
“This is definitely a cookbook that you can use every day... please read, reminisce and take in the beautiful photography that I trust has captured New Zealand’s character, personality and grace, using our delicious food as a means of this expression.” — Al Brown.

With great stories about New Zealand food as well as more than 150 recipes, this is a nostalgic treasure trove that gets to the heart of what New Zealand culture is and the food that reflects that. Combined with stunning food photography and beautiful on-location shots from around the country, this is the perfect gift for every New Zealander.

Eat Up New Zealand honours the past with updated Kiwi classics like roast lamb, pies, corned beef, pikelets, cheese scones, feijoa and tamarillo desserts, preserves and even an old girlfriend’s mother’s bran muffin recipe. Kiwis have access to the best fresh produce in the world and Al's approach is to start with great seasonal produce, cook it simply and add a flavour punch, texture and garnish to take it to another level. It's clever, simple, yet refined food that is inherently Kiwi.
