About this object

"The origins of New Zealand's cuisine can be traced back to our nineteenth-century immigrant ancestors. Bringing with them a tradition based on an annual agricultural cycle, they were confronted with ... [a] plentiful fertile land & a generally milder climate. This abundance, combined with the strong traditions of the immigrants produced a cuisine based on a wide choice of meats, dairy products, fruits & vegetables, & characterised by plenty & hospitality ... examines in detail the development of our cuisine & domestic culture over the past two centuries"--Cover. Contents: Long tradition -- Plenty & want -- Salt beef & the farmer's ordinary -- Tame beasts, game beasts & good King Edwards -- Mr Shacklock & Mrs Beeton -- Rise of the New Zealand scone -- Demon drink -- Conclusion: our changing dinner. Includes bibliographic references (p. [166]-178) and indexes.
