In this delightful cookbook, you will discover recipes from throughout Matt’s career as a professional chef and he will guide you through the creation of treats that he’s famed for selling at the Otago Farmers Market.

Dogs with Jobs By Laura Greaves

The long and winding Aotearoa By George Lockyer

Driving a car (when are we there) you’re always on the way to somewhere. On a bike, you’re already there in the landscape, in the moment. And sometimes there’s literally nowhere else you’d rather be. In George Lockyer’s new book, The Long and Winding Aotearoa, we find him riding his Triumph Bonneville around the country, from Kaitaia to Invercargill, and seeing his often humorous take on life from under a crash helmet. On the way round our magnificent country he stops to interview some fascinating characters, all with a story to tell. We meet not just motorcyclists, but a wide variety of kiwis, from craftsmen, artists and firefighters, to rugby coaches, quakers and architects.


Discover the true stories of some of the world’s incredible working dogs, and the extraordinary jobs they undertake. Meet Molly, the diabetes alert dog whose round-the-clock job is to keep her two young owners healthy; Bailey, the Assistant Director of Seagulls whose job is to keep the pesky birds away from the heritage vessels at the Australian National Maritime Museum and Daisy, the Collie mix who is a full-time guide dog to another blind dog. From inspirational moments of bravery in service, to tales of dogs doing the jobs that no one else can, these are the life-affirming stories of the hardest-working dogs in the world.
