An Evening with The Cook and Baker
When The Cook and Baker opened its doors in 2012 there was no knowing how people would react. Diet gurus were preaching ‘sugar is poison’ whilst raw food, the Mediterranean diet and the joys of green juice were all the rage. In their Bondi Junction neighbourhood, this little shop was surrounded by organic health-food outlets. Was the world ready for the return of the big fat jam donut, the lolly cake and a ginger oat crunch?! Luckily it didn’t take long before crowds started milling four-deep outside the shop. Owners Cherie Bevan and Tass Tauroa were not the only people harbouring a nostalgic longing for richly flavoured cooking.
Now in their first book The Cook and Baker, Cherie and Tass have modernised and refined traditional recipes but stayed true to their own early memories of home baking in New Zealand.
Join us for an author talk with Cherie and Tass and enjoy some samples from The Cook and Baker on the night!
