The recipe go-to for every New Zealand kitchen

An authoritative and above all useful cookbook from New Zealand’s favourite broadcaster, featuring 180 trusted (and tested) recipes hand-picked from the thousands of delicious recipes that have featured on RNZ shows such as Nine to Noon, Afternoons and Saturday Morning in recent decades. The format is mapped to a day on air on RNZ: the recipes are in categories that take the user from morning to well into the night.

Featuring recipes from key personalities from down the years — from Alison Holst and Julie Biuso to Martin Bosley, Nadia Lim and Peter Gordon — it’s a terrific way to track our food history.

With a rich essentials section plus radio and food key-moments timelines, The RNZ Cookbook connects the hundreds of thousands of kitchens around New Zealand and abroad who turn to RNZ for direction on great food. Afternoons host and foodie Jesse Mulligan provides the foreword.
