Labour weekend in New Zealand is often a time when people take advantage of a long weekend to go on a road trip trip to visit friends or family. With Labour Weekend fast approaching, this is the book to read.
|Get Fresh with Al Brown|
The Book 'Get Fresh by Al Brown' is essentially a foodie road trip by celebrated New Zealand chef Al Brown. Subtitled 'Stories and Recipes from Heartland New Zealand'.
One man, a ute and a frypan head off into the coutryside. From the Far North to Riverton in the deep South, he explores farmers' markets, and meets the growers and foodie artisans from around New Zealand on their home patch. This is the ultimate foodie road trip around New Zealand, and the book wouldn't be complete without a liberal selection of recipes that highlight the the great foods of each region. Gorgeous creations by a master chef, beautifully photographed that make you want to stop the car and start cooking.
Each region featured has a list of great places to visit (that aren't food related) and features a song by a local artist. Slipped into the back of the book you will find a free CD with Al's Road Trip mix, so you can cruise along or cook to the sound of Fat Freddies Drop and more.
And from another legendary NZ restauranteur, Fleur Sullivan:
' Get Fresh ' is like a 'lonely planet' guide for us to explore, taste and enjoy the culinary trails of Aotearoa. Out in the provinces we will be welcoming these happy foodies clutching your inspirational book - nau mai, haere mai. Thank you, Al!
