The Rugby Pantry - Daisy Dagg & Amber Vito
After becoming firm ‘foodie friends’ during the 2012 All Blacks end-of-year tour, Daisy and Amber launched ‘The Rugby Pantry’ Facebook page. It quickly evolved into a popular site, and The Rugby Pantry cookbook was born.
Home cooking doesn’t have to be complicated or time-consuming, but meals should have great flavour. Because we are busy wives, mothers, and business-women, we understand that most people have limited time to cook family meals. So our recipes are quick, easy, provide short-cuts and use everyday ingredients.
Our husbands (Israel Dagg and Victor Vito), who have demanding jobs and commanding appetites, have sampled all the recipes and given them the thumbs up. We’ve included a few of their favourites, some recipes passed down from our families and, of course, our own creations.
