The Home Orchard Cookery Book by Gillian Painter

The Home Orchard Cookery Book ” was written by Gillian Painter and published by Hodder & Stoughton in 1977 as a 1st Edition.
Gillian Painter, who has her own large home orchard, started this book ‘ as a collection of good nutritious recipes using fruit, so that we could have a wide variety of meals from the bounty of our tree and vines. ‘

With the renewed interest in natural foods and home produce she felt there was a need for a cookery book concentrating on the orchard fruits commonly grown in New Zealand gardens : apples and citrus fruits, peaches, pears, plums, quinces, and subtropical fruits – the Chinese gooseberry, feijoa, guava, passionfruit, persimmon and tamarillob.

Together with traditional recipes for each fruit ( eg. puddings & jams ) the author presents here many tempting new ideas for using the fruits in cakes and biscuits, hot and cold savoury dishes, salads, drinks and sauces.

Each recipe has been tested, and written up with an emphasis on encouraging the reader’s own imagination.
