The New Zealand Woman's Weekly food pages have been the byword for easy-to-achieve yet stylish recipes for 80 years. Two years ago Helen Jackson succeeded Tui Flower, Robin Martin and Julie Le Clerc at the helm of the food pages of this venerable publication. Now, in her first book, she shares how she cooks at home. Her 100 recipes are divided into occasions, including recipes for breakfast, easy entertaining, afternoon tea, family dinners, catering for crowds, children's birthday parties and lunch. With appealing photography and helpful hints, Helen Jackson's Kitchen is perfectly pitched to its target market: busy families who still cook and love to share terrific food. With everything from tried-and-true baking to fabulous winter cassoulets, it's stylish, aspirational, practical, achievable and inspirational.
Helen Jackson is the food editor of the New Zealand Woman's Weekly and also runs the very popular website foodlover.co.nz. She also co-hosts the Saturday Morning lifestyle show on Radio Live. She lives in Auckland with her husband and three young children.
