A Second Helping. More from Ladies A Plate.Another tempting selection of traditional home-baking from Alexa Johnston, author of Ladies, A Plate. This collection has many more old favourites, like Sponge Kisses, Melting Moments and Cream Lilies, as well as a few savoury treats. Alexa has also included a chapter on home-made sweets so that readers will be able to stock the sweet stall at the school fair with Hokey Pokey, Ginger Ice and very best Russian Fudge.
Snippets of NZ social history are once again included throughout as Alexa pays tribute to the women who contributed recipes to the hundreds of community cookbooks that were published over the past sixty years. Like its predecessor, this beautiful book will be essential in every baker's kitchen and a source of continuing pleasure.
Alexa Johnston works as a freelance art curator and writer. Her definitive biography of the iconic New Zealand hero, Sir Edmund Hillary: An Extraordinary Life, was a finalist in the Montana Awards. An enthusiastic and accomplished baker from a young age, Alexa has an impressive collection of both cooking utensils and Kiwianna cookbooks.
