A Distant Feast, The Origins of New Zealand's Cuisine
Tony Simpson

Auckland: A Godwit Book, 2008 softcover, 215mm x 239mm, 280pp.

The origins of much of New Zealand's cuisine can be traced back to our nineteenth-centary immigrant ancestors. Bringing with them a tradition based on an annual agricultural cycle, they were confronted with not only reversed seasons but also plentiful,
fertile land and a kinder climate. This abundance, combined with strong northern-hemisphere food and social traditions produced a local cuisine baed on meat, dairy products and fruit and vegetables, characterised by plenty and hospitality.

First published in 1999, this fully illustrated and updated edition draws on a wealth of published and unpublished sources to detail the development of New Zealand's distinctive cuisine and domestic culture over two centuries. Historic photographs and drawings, along with historic recipes for delights as diverse as 'colonial goose', eel pie and ginger kisses, provide a vivid portrait of the eating habits of our ancestors.
