Response from Harper Collins NZ to The Bookman's new blog

"As you know, HarperCollins has a fantastic cook book list, from both our local and international publishing.  Hence the reason we started our FabulousFoodies facebook page, which continues to be hugely popular.

We’ve got a couple of great cookbooks coming out in April, in time for Mother’s day.  Firstly, we’re publishing the latest from Natalie Oldfield, Gran’s Sweet PantryGSP harks back to Natalie’s first two books, Gran’s Family Table and Gran’s Kitchen, which were both hugely successful.  
It’s a truly beautiful baking book, based on a collection of the best recipes from Dulcie May, Natalie’s much loved grandmother and namesake of her award-winning food store, Dulcie May Kitchen, in Mt Eden.

The second book is Cook, Eat, Enjoy from Nici Wickes, Viva restaurant reviewer and star of World KitchenWorld Kitchen (currently in its fifth season) is a fast-paced, cheeky travel and cooking show which now screens in over 80 countries worldwide and premiered on TV3 in NZ, but is currently re-playing on Food TV.
 In Cook, Eat, Enjoy Nici visits Mexico, India, Morocco, Spain, Greece and Vietnam, capturing the flavours of each country and serving up wonderful recipes that bring each country alive.  The chapters are divided by country and each is introduced with Nici’s memories and reminiscences of the country.  As well as fantastic recipes, the pages are filled with stunning photographs.

And finally, next month we are publishing The Good Life, a gorgeous slice-of-life gardening book.  Sarah O’Neil’s, AKA Sarah the Gardener,  transformation from urban dweller to lifestyle-block lover happened several years ago after she and her husband, Tom ‘Hubby the Un-Gardener’, decided to make the move from an inner-city Auckland suburb with a 24-square-metre triangle lawn to a 3-acre property on the outskirts of Pukekohe.   The first thing Sarah did was build a large garden.  Her book, The Good Life, is an inspiring look at the ups and downs of a year in the garden.

Whilst not strictly being a cook book, the book does contain some great recipes to make the most of the produce that grows in backyard, such as Fruit ice cream, sundried tomatoes, and blackberry wine"
