Tasty, quick, easy weeknight meals from the very popular MasterChef NZ winner Chelsea Winter. Chelsea's bestselling first book At my table is loved by many for its tasty and hearty recipes. Her second book contains the same relaxed, accessible style of Kiwi food but it focuses more on 'week-night' style meals that are quick and easy to whip up. And as with all Chelsea's recipes, they are absolutely delicious. It's a lively and fast-paced book, pitched nicely for young families who are pushed for time. Chelsea is fun and high-energy and her new book reflects this perfectly - it's casual, young, spontaneous, fresh and bright. Her food is good straight-forward Kiwi food - mainstream and unpretentious.Two of her most popular recipes are chicken pie and strawberry cheesecake. Delicious and no-fuss.
Since winning MasterChef New Zealand's third season, Chelsea Winter has produced two cookbooks At My Table and Everyday Delicious and developed a huge following through her facebook page facebook.com/ChelseaWinterDelicious and her website chelseawinter.co.nz. She is the Woman's Day food writer and a key presenter for Beef and Lamb as well as working with a number of other brands. She is passionate about creating straight-forward, home-style recipes that are simple to prepare, yet look great and taste fantastic. To Chelsea, food is a way of bringing people and families together and time shared and relaxed around the dinner table with loved ones is simply invaluable. Chelsea grew up as a farm girl in both Hamilton and Kumeu, yet is also the ultimate beach baby, having spent her childhood summers between Great Barrier Island, Raglan and Mount Maunganui. Her favourite piece of advice? Don't be afraid of a little pure New Zealand butter - it makes the world a better place.
