Daily Post Book Review

Posted by GERHARD EGGER on Monday, July 23, 2012,

Thank you Ingrid and the Daily Post for the great book review in Saturdays paper. We would have loved to have been able to get more images of the people that contributed, however just getting the recipes was at times an arduous task. We have now had reviews in 2 major and three local papers! Don't forget if you wish to support the Te Whakapono Health Trust, you need to purchase through one of the outlets that is selling on their behalf.

Sales going well

Posted by GERHARD EGGER on Tuesday, June 26, 2012,
It is now two months since the books arrived and we are very pleased with the way sales are going. Many have purchased an initial copy and then come back for more as they wish to give them away as presents and the feedback we are getting has been great.

As we have previously mentioned the Te Whakapono Health Trust are selling them to raise funds for a new dialysis machine (these machine have a 5 year life span), it is great to see that this small group of volunteers have raised in the vicinity...

Thank you Catherine, for the support you have shown. Being an independently published book, without the resources of a big publishing house behind us, we appreciate the exposure.

Master Chef New Zealand advance copy

Posted by GERHARD EGGER on Thursday, April 5, 2012,
It is all a bit amusing, we've decided Masterchef New Zealand must have had an advance copy of the book - two weeks ago they served Coconut Prawns (pge 17) at a cocktail party on HMS Canterbury and this week they served an old french classic of Lamb Navarin (pge 185)!
What will they cook next? Perhaps the Creamy Kumara Blue Vein Soup on page 104?
