These programmes normally consistent of a pretty lady or a middle aged gentleman telling you about the history of their culture or family's food traditions. Some of these cultures include French, Italian, Mexican, Greek and Vietnamese. But it is very rare to hear about the smaller countries.
I come from South Africa, a place with rich food and diverse dishes, but we aren't talked about much on the Food Network. Now I live in New Zealand and once again, the food is never discussed on big TV networks.
When I was sent Anne Else's new book (originally in E-format and now in paperback) I was completely floored by the way Anne associates with food. It's a whole different world and it's quite exciting. Anne talks about how she grew up with food, what role it played in her life and how it's purpose changed as she did.
The best part?
It's set in New Zealand, written by a New Zealander and about New Zealand food.
It was an eye opener (especially for a foreigner) to see how food evolved in New Zealand. I would definitely recommend it to everyone. Kiwis will associate with the book, they'll be able to relate to the products mentioned and think back to the times Anne describes in the books. Everyone else will be afforded a glimpse into the Kiwi culinary world.
