    Never Put All Your Eggs in One Bastard A Memoir
    ISBN: 9781775533870
    Publication date: 01/12/2016

    "Funny, passionate, outrageous and honest, this is a memoir about travel, house renovations, food, music, men and change. 'I've escaped more houses than I've said Hail Marys.' Peta Mathias has been making major moves since leaving home to train as a nurse, before living in Canada, London and later France, where she set up her own restaurant. Although she returned to New Zealand, writing food books and making television series, she continued to yoyo back to Europe and started culinary tours to Spain, Italy, Morocco, India, Vietnam, and the recurring attraction- France. In this 'memoir of sorts', Peta looks back at the patterns of her life while she embarks on the next big stage in it- selling her beloved cottage in Auckland to buy a dilapidated old house in Uzos in the south of France and transforming the old wreck into a stylish home and cooking school. This new domesticity is set against her nomadic instincts and past history of running away from all conventional expectations of settling down. Spiced with recipes, the thrills and tribulations of reinventing yourself and her trademark humour, this book is really about never putting all your eggs in one bastard."

    In this blistering memoir of his life in the baking business, Dean Brettschneider describes his journey from a small town baker’s apprentice to Global Baker and the internationally successful entrepreneur he is today. Make no mistake — this is not a book about baking. As we follow the interwoven arcs of Dean’s career and personal life, his experience teaches us practical lessons on how to harness our passion to strategically improve ourselves and advance our careers. His revelations on entrepreneurship — most notably how he founded Baker & Cook and transformed it from a neighbourhood bakery into a multi-national money-spinner in a matter of years — give us a first row view of what goes into building a business from the ground up, including all of the pain and sacrifice that comes with it. Told in a refreshingly frank manner, Dean’s story is sometimes shockingly direct, often hilarious, and always enlightening, leaving us with valuable astute insights into how to navigate the trials and tribulations of life in business.
