Notes about this book

  • debkellie on January 17, 2022

    It is an interesting life journey read.. with some amazing road and career trips, which explain a deal about her ethos... but if you want a Langbein cook book this is NOT it ;-)

  • Ganga108 on January 10, 2022

    This book is Annabel's life journey via food. In the 350'ish pages, the largest proportion are dedicated to her story. It is more biography than cookbook. However it is likely to appeal to lovers of her other books and those who enjoy the intertwining of stories and recipes. There are only 60 recipes, indicating the lower emphasis placed on this part of the content. Sadly, it is not a book for vegetarians - only 2 recipes are "proper" vegetarian recipes (ie main meals, not desserts, sweets, salads, dressings etc).

Publishers Text

For the first time, Annabel Langbein, New Zealand's most popular cookbook author, writes about her remarkable life and how food has shaped it, highlighting some of the recipes that have resonated most strongly with her over the years. From her childhood fascination with cooking to a teenage flirtation as a Maoist hippie, to possum trapping and living off the land as a hunter and forager, to travelling and starting her own croissant business in Brazil, Annabel's life has always been centred on food and nature. Out of this came an obsession with creating cookbooks, introducing a generation of cooks to her simple recipes for delicious, stylish meals. Annabel has lived a huge and varied life, and she writes vividly about her many adventures. From throughout this rich life in food she has chosen 60 key recipes, created with her signature style and flair that make cooking easy for everyone, sharing them in this beautifully photographed book.
