- Cut Josh Emett's KitchenISBN: 9781775533696
Publication date: 01/12/2013
A stunning hardback cookbook with great meat recipes for the home cook from MasterChef NZ judge Josh Emett. This beautifully photographed and designed book is divided into sections: duck; chicken; lamb; beef; quail; rabbit; pork; veal; and venison. It also includes a section on pies because Josh is a huge fan of them. In addition to information on all the cuts of meat for each animal, this book includes usage of each different cut, and recipes for using each defined cut. Plus each of those recipes contains other components such as side dishes, sauces and relishes - essential knowledge for all good home cooks. One of Josh's key philosophies is zero wastage, using everything from the animal; having respect for the animal; and knowing where your food comes from. Josh is a Michelin-starred chef, working in London, New York, Los Angeles and Melbourne with Gordon Ramsay and Marcus Wareing, so his credentials are impeccable. But he hasn't forgotten his Waikato roots - and there are beautiful shots of Josh in the Waikato farm countryside

- Depot The Biography of a Restaurant (with recipes)ISBN: 9781775537199
Publication date: 01/12/2014
Depot has been one of Auckland's favourite restaurants since the day it opened, and now here is its stunning cookbook. Depot is not overly precious or pretentious - it reflects perfectly Al Brown's attitude towards food: in season, beautifully cooked, to be enjoyed with friends. This book is subtitled 'The biography of a restaurant', and in it Al Brown writes extensively about the philosophy of Depot, explaining why Depot has achieved iconic status among New Zealanders. Al wanted to recreate the feeling of being at a Kiwi bach (or crib, for South Islanders, or beach house for non-Kiwis). The New Zealand bach is typically a small homely place where people live the simple life and cook easy but delicious meals. There's a retro feel with mismatched old crockery and chairs and there's always a feeling of generosity, of sharing the fish you caught that day, of enjoying meal times with the whanau and neighbours. And so this is the feel and the design aesthetic that Al wanted to recreate with Depot, which he's done really successfully. But never forget that Al is a highly trained chef. So while the food looks simple, everything is top quality and the flavours are out of this world. His dishes favour the unusual - using cheap cuts of meat and fish but cooking them with skill and talent. In this book Al offers all the recipes that have been cooked at Depot so that you can make them at home. Once again, Al has created a cutting-edge book - it's handsome with a stunning design. It also contains coasters that you can pull out and use at home - a special gift for the buyer, just like the postcards in Stoked and the fortune fish in Go Fish. This isn't a book - it's an institution, and everyone will want to be a part of it.
