Source, it's all about our food, our people, our land. This latest book by authors Gerhard and Henri Egger takes you on a journey around the beautiful countryside and waters of New Zealand, Aotearoa. This is a result of over a years travel, looking at the stories behind the food our fertile country grows, harvests and produces. It is an insightful documentary recognising local specialities and the dedicated people who are passionate about their product—the Source if you like—of where it all begins. The stories and photography in this stunning edition will provide many hours of enjoyment to hunters and fishermen, farmers, cheese lovers, and anyone with an interest in good food and where it comes from. Source will make an ideal gift for that hard to please man-of-the-house or anyone with an interest in great food.
For those who also enjoy cooking and experimenting with new and innovative ideas, the selection of recipes at the back provide inspiration as well as touching on some kiwi favourites.
Gerhard and Henri believe that the concept of 'good food' starts with the people who are passionate about producing it. Good food is also about working with, and caring for our environment; good food is about handling and cooking the produce with respect, and good food is very much about enjoying and sharing the experience with others.
The concept of the word ‘food’ has many layers: it relates to our culture, our land and—the people who live here. Food can be sensual, the colours and textures, the smells and the memories it evokes; food is an infinite source of inspiration.

We have been judged the world's best meat cookbook for 2015.
The largest competition of its kind in the world, this is a huge event for food culture and an even bigger event for cook books, the Gourmand World Cookbook awards this year had over 200 countries participating.
We are delighted to receive the silver medal at the 2016 IPPY awards in America. We competed in the Australia/New Zealand best regional non-fiction category. It was particularly pleasing for us to win a medal in a highly contested international competition open to all non-fiction books not only cookbooks.
