Alison Holst’s Complete Cooking Class

Several of the 60 or so recipe books which crowd the shelf in my kitchen are Alison Holst’s.

From the small paper back one for using food processors – a birthday gift nearly three decades ago when kitchen whizzes were new – to the large, hard back Ultimate Collection.

Then there’s her Complete Cooking Class. It’s full of reliable, easy to follow recipes with ingredients which are usually on hand or easy to find.

The tatty cover is testament to the amount of use it gets.

    I too have a collection of very well used Alison Holst books.

    Reading back through her Kitchen Diary series you can see how she gently nudged New Zealand cooks to move from meat-and-three-veg to explore new and “exotic” ideas that we now take for granted.
