Lou and Ant Bentley established the Akaroa Cooking School in 2009, after years of balancing corporate lives with their passion for food, and squeezing in training at the Chiang Mai Cookery School and the New Zealand School of Food and Wine. They wanted to teach people how to get back to basics – growing their own food where possible, but certainly knowing where it came from and how best to prepare and cook it.
Their book, Fresh from Akaroa, includes recipes and tips from their highly popular cooking school, plus stunning photographs of Banks Peninsula.
With over 100 delicious recipes, plus tips on giving dinner parties, buying and cooking fish, the perfect barbecue, canapes and cocktails, and Asian-inspired cookery, this is a book chock full of useful and beautiful material.
