For generations, family and friends have gathered around the kitchen table to share the joys and heartache that life serves up. Many comforting cups of tea and muffins are sure to have been consumed as women around the country have shared all their anxieties and fears as they struggle to come to terms with the heartbreaking and devastating news of a breast cancer diagnosis which will affect 1 in 9 New Zealand women in their lifetime.

A Treasury of New Zealand BakingWhat better way to kick-off Breast Cancer Action Month, than the publication of this treasure trove of cakes, slices, loaves, scones, tarts and muffins from our best-loved foodwriters and chefs. Infused with love and a generosity of spirit, A Treasury of New Zealand Baking is destined to become a comforting kitchen companion to be treasured and passed down through the generations.

This is a cookbook truly to be treasured. Beautifully packaged, it includes over 100 classic recipes for cakes, slices, loaves, scones, tarts, muffins and friandes from a star-studded list of food writers: Peta Mathias, Ray McVinnie, Tui Flower, Jo Seagar, Alison Holst, Julie le Clerc, Helen Jackson, Julie Buiso, Allyson Gofton, Catherine Bell, Kate Fraser, Kathy Paterson, Alexa Johnston, Annabelle White, Judith Cullen, Helen Browne, David Burton, Martin Bosley, Simon Wright, Natalia Schamroth and many, many more.

The recipes include everything from glamour special-occasion cakes to every day fill-the-tins reliables.

A Treasury of New Zealand BakingEvery recipe was tested and baked especially for this project by well-known international baker and author Dean Brettschneider, with stunning photography by Aaron Maclean.

Best of all, all royalties go the Breast Cancer Foundation of New Zealand. The book is edited by author, food judge, Cuisine food editor and New Zealand food ambassador extraordinaire, Lauraine Jacobs.
