Author(s): Martin Bosley
When the redoubtable Lois Daish retired last year as the Listener's food writer, many thought the pages would never be the same again. Her successor, celebrated Wellington chef Martin Bosley, has given them a new lease of life. Bosley is the owner-chef of the Port Nicholson Yacht Club restaurant on Wellington's Oriental Bay waterfront. Bosley's Listener cooking columns are far from stiff and starchy. He loves using seasonal produce and his columns are chatty, informative, witty and endearing. He's a campaigner against battery-farmed hens and a champion of what he calls our "food revolution". This book brings together recipes from his columns as well as 20 new ones - 90 in all - in a sparklingly packaged book that will become a mainstay on recipe book shelves throughout the land. First published August 2008.
One of New Zealand's most highly regarded chefs, Martin Bosley is the owner of the Port Nicholson Yacht Club restaurant on the waterfront at Oriental Bay in Wellington. The restaurant won the coveted Cuisine magazine restaurant of the year award in 2007. He writes a weekly column in the Listener and another in the Air New Zealand magazine Kia Ora.
