Food Central: Stories & Recipes from the Heart of Nelson - Nelson Central School (Nelson)
The group of parents behind Central School's effort has tried very hard to make Food Central tell the story of Nelson through photographs, stories, and some of its local identities, as well as food. Though Nelson Central School is now the oldest school in New Zealand still functioning on its original site, the cookbook is fresh and modern.
Recipes include lots of kid-friendly food - breads and dips, mini quiches, rice bubble chicken nuggets, chilli sweet potato and eggplant crisps, potato foccacia bread, nasi goreng - as well as the more adventurous. Along with delicious offerings from parents, local business contributions include Broccoli Row's seafood chowder; Lambretta's pizza sauce, chilli jam and aioli; Melrose House Cafe's strawberry tiramisu; Morrison Street Cafe's chocolate and berry brownie; the Suter Cafe's orange almond cake; and Ka-Pie's bacon and egg pie.
