a home grown cook

the dame Alison holst story

with Barbara Larson

239 pages
2011

Dame Alison Holst holds more titles than her damehood suggests: she's been invariably described as

'Mother of the Nation',

'Queen of the Kitchen' and 'a

groundbreaker in the culinary world'.

In the sixties, Alison singlehandedly changed the way women prepared food for their families with her legendary television programme 'Here's How'.

She went on to become a prodigious fund-raiser for Plunkett,

the chocolate-coated voice of radio,

author of a hundred bestselling cookbooks,

created a successful business brand

, as well as our favourite promoter of New Zealand products overseas.

In A Home-grown Cook,


Alisons fascinating memoir unfolds with the characteristic charm and calm spirit that is so familiar to us all.

From a modest upbringing in Dunedin to becoming one of our most endearing Kiwi icons,


alison had many many books published,
many tv shows including regular slots for the kids on what now


A Home-grown Cook brilliantly captures Dame Alison's distinctive voice on every page.
