The Taste of Central Otago: More from Arrowtown's Saffron Restaurant, Pete Gawron

Another sumptuous cookbook from Pete Gawron's Saffron restaurant in Arrowtown.

In 2007 Pete Gawron's first cookbook, Saffron: Food from the Central Otago Heartland, wowed readers and was quickly reprinted. Its dazzling combination of stunning recipes and magnificent photos of the Arrowtown district conjured up the spirit of Central Otago. The award-wining Saffron, in quaint, historic Arrowtown, is a known worldwide for its fabulous food and wine. Now, in this second book, Pete Gawron shows how he transforms local produce (often foraging himself for fungi, fruit, berries and more) into utterly delicious, artfully presented dishes.

With over 75 recipes and magical images by Aaron McLean, this is a book to treasure, and a great celebration of this wonderful part of New Zealand.
