Food Heroes celebrates a remarkable group of producers and growers who are returning to artisan methods to create some of New Zealand's best food and finest quality ingredients. In doing so they are changing the way we shop and eat.
Food writer and commentator Simon Farrell-Green has selected his pick of the best growers of quality lamb, beef, seafood, milk, apples and heritage vegetables, and producers of everything from artisan cheeses and bread to salami, coffee, lime soda and honey. Each of his heroes shares their secrets for creating fresh, carefully handled and beautifully considered food, while recipes show the reader how to cook hero ingredients in the way their producer intended.
