New Zealand’s best-selling book of all time has been revamped to match modern tastes and reflect the way Kiwis are eating in 2016. In its first major overhaul since the 1990s, the Edmonds Cookery Book, 2016 Edition has made space for modern trends including home-made pasta, gluten-free options, as well as a variety of delicious new classics.
Under the watchful guide of art historian and food authority Alexa Johnstone, the new version of this iconic Kiwi book also includes the re-introduction of favourites from previous editions. Elsie’s Finger Biscuits is back from 1923, Marshmallow Shortcake from 1976 and cheese loaf from 1986, and The 2016 Edition also comes with charming historical notes and updated photography.
Found in almost every Kiwi kitchen, the Edmonds Cookery Book is the quintessential guide to cooking and baking in New Zealand and the new version is sure to fly off the shelves.
First published in 1908, complimentary copies of the Edmonds Cookery Book were sent to young couples announcing their engagement, creating a strong tradition of gifting that has continued throughout the decades.
These days the book is more likely to be given to teenagers leaving home for their first flat, or to international visitors seeking a unique slice of Kiwiana.
