Latest book

writer_thumbFood@Home is a journey through the new ‘foodways’ that are evolving in New Zealand.

Author/gardener/cook Christine Dann looks at the ways in which food production, distribution, preparation and service are being brought back home to produce superior food with minimal environmental impact.

Christine’s journey starts with the rediscovery of home food gardening traditions of both Maori and Pakeha, and ends at the dining table where a delicious healthy feast is being served.

Her route takes her to community gardens, farmers’ markets, artisan food producers, the Slow Food Movement, organic orchards, school gardens, backyard edible empires, the Spud in a Bucket programme, foraging, freeganism and fine ecological dining.

And along the way she shows how everyone can get a piece of this delicious action.”

Reviews and comments on Food@Home

“New Zealander Dann, a lifelong gardener holding a PhD in environmental policy, offers a beautifully-written and heartfelt account of the ways she and others have escaped from a processed food nightmare. Well-researched and full of critical observations, Dann (Cottage Gardening in New Zealand) laments the food knowledge of peasants and the indigenous Maori that is nearly lost today, while recognizing a food renaissance that is picking up momentum. Though she passionately recommends gardening, she highlights Kiwi trends paralleling those seen in the United States —foraging, organic restaurants, farmer’s markets, “freeganism”, bartering—as all economic classes are showing a heightened appreciation for non-processed food in the same historical moment. Dann’s love for food and gardening is evident here, and she demonstrates that great food can be made available, whether through home-growing or sought out through local farm-share connections. Beautiful garden pictures from her travels and her own backyard, as well as simple, enticing vegetarian recipes accompany the text. While some of the gardening tips provided are clearly meant for Southern Hemisphere dwellers, the majority will be useful for novice green thumbs looking to start a sustainable, nutritious, and gastronomically exciting gardening adventure.

“I am really enjoying it – you have a lovely relaxed chatty style which nevertheless conveys vast amounts of useful info in a totally digestible, reader-friendly way!”

“Loving it and I’m finding that even though it’s NZ-oriented, there’s a lot of the gardening and growing advice that’s applicable to Oz, particularly our region where the climate is not unlike much of NZ – with the exception of that lack of rain thing we have, although the last couple of years here have been quite wet. Anyway, congratulations on the publication, it’s like taking a garden ramble through food, agriculture and sustainability all on its own and I’ve recommended it to a few like-minded friends here.
Robin Tennant-Wood, university lecturer, Braidwood, Australia

 

“I started reading your book at the airport. I didn’t have my dictionary but I understood most of it. I like your writing, and I am convinced that this book will give us very important information and renewed thoughts about our life.
