Pukapuka Talks

Join acclaimed Whakatū Nelson-based food writer Nicola Galloway at the Food Factory demo kitchen to celebrate the publication of her new pukapuka, The Homemade Table. Nicola will reveal how focusing on the seasons has revolutionised her approach to growing, harvesting, storing, and preparing food.

She will then prepare one of the Master Recipes from her book - a simple and delicious lacto-ferment that can be made all year round with seasonal produce.

Nicola Galloway is one of the most respected food writers and photographers in Aotearoa, well known for her syndicated columns and award-winning website Homegrown Kitchen, as well as her book of the same name. She has also built a large following for her sell-out cooking workshops that she runs around Aotearoa.

The Homemade Table is her latest book. It expands on her approach to cooking, which is more than just about preparing homemade meals. It encompasses an inspired way of living and thinking about food that not only feeds the body but the mind and soul.

With many new recipes, and in-depth sections on sourdough bread, preserves and cultured dairy, this is a substantial, beautifully illustrated cookbook that the reader will be able to return to again and again. Made to be used, it is Nicola’s hope that The Homemade Table will become a well-thumbed favourite, complete with food-splattered pages and personalised notes in the margin.
