Taste magazine feature

May 12, 2012

This little blog of mine was lucky enough to be featured in this month’s Taste magazine (a New Zealand food mag, for those reading from outside New Zealand) :)

It was a little poignant reading this little piece of New Zealand whilst being in Sydney! I do miss the sense of familiarity and close-knitness you develop so quickly in New Zealand, where mostly everyone has time for a bit of yarn. Luckily I’ve found that feeling at work, but the fast-paced food culture is a bit more nonchalant and intimidating over here so far, with a few exceptions (my workmate pointed out that Fratelli Fresh is two minutes away from work…!).

The recipe featured in Taste is an old favourite – apple and rhubarb crumble. If you’re looking for other awesome sweet things to make from the magazine, the beautiful pear tarts on page 74 are the real keeper, from Treats and Little on Friday. I’m also drooling all over Julie Biuso’s brown sugar meringue with chocolate cream, even though I’m not a fan of meringue generally speaking. So if you’re looking to get some yummy sweet ideas, this issue is all over that, plus you get to read me harp on about myself :P

Have a lovely weekend :)

    Congrats Zo! Is it on sale in Aus or did you get it sent over?

    I’m SO impressed Zo!! Thats an awesome spread. My Taste subscription had to stop when I moved overseas and I miss it dearly! That looks like a great edition.

    Go Zo!! I’m so glad that you have been nationally (and internationally??) recognised! Will have to buy a copy :)

    Thanks everyone :)

    Peasepudding: I kinda wished I had a prettier recipe to offer them…yours was so gorgeous!

    A Day in the Food: I got this copy sent over, and will have to check…I think Australia has a different taste mag, but haven’t really had time to investigate yet!

    Christina: They miiight have an e-subscription option? Through Zinio or something? That’s a good site to check if any of your other favourite mags are available electronically anyway. Hope Canada is treating you well :)

    It must have been strange though to feature after the move to Sydney.
