Listing #: 456260645
Volunteers were asked to decorate a pot and saucer for The Press and Sunday Star-Times Great Flower Pot Design Contest, which has been displayed at the Egmont Seeds Ellerslie Flower Show 2012, and then to be auctioned on TradeMe for a charity of their choice.

Laura Faire loves fresh food and seeing people enjoy eating and cooking her recipes. She started cooking to help her mum feed the shearers when she was little and loved it from day one.

Many years of cooking in restaurants, on international film sets and for swanky London parties brought her to food writing, and then a three-year tenure running the test kitchens for Nestle New Zealand where she wrote two books and tasted and launched many of New Zealand's favourite products.

Her latest book, Now is the Season, brings back rustic cooking with simple tips on things you can do in the garden to make sure your ingredients are super fresh and in season.

Laura can normally be found covered in dirt in her garden or manically running from oven to desk trying to capture flavours of the season for her own books and blog -

Laura’s chosen charity is the Garden to Table Trust.

This pot also includes a signed copy of Laura Faire’s Now is the Season.

Please note: You are bidding on the decorated pot and saucer only, and the successful bidder will be able to either pick up from The Press in Christchurch which would also include the plant, or have just the pot and saucer only couriered to your address.
