Friends cook up recipe book idea Comfort food: Food and wine writer Lauraine Jacobs with a pot-roasted chicken with rice and vegetable stuffing, which features in a new cookbook titled Comfort: Food for Sharing. Proceeds from the book are set to benefit the Starship Foundation.Photo: JASON OXENHAM By RHIANNON HORRELL A chance meeting on the beach between friends has led to the creation of an impress- ive cookbook which is raising money for the Starship Foun- dation. New Zealand Guild of Foodwriters president Lau- raine Jacobs was strolling along Omaha Beach earlier this year when she met Jude Turner, who was about to relinquish her role as chairwoman of Friends of Starship. Mrs Turner expressed her only regret was not being able to finish a charity cook- book project she d started. I said to her: I think I can help, why don t we ask members of the guild to con- tribute to the book ? Mrs Jacobs says. I was keen to raise the profile of food writers as New Zealand has so many good ones. As a result, Comfort: Food for Sharing was born and the pair are thrilled with the result. Mrs Jacobs says the con- tributors, who include diet- icians, nutritionists, foodies and chefs, have been incred- ibly generous by sharing their favourite recipes. It s the sort of food you could take to someone who is a bit needy. It s soups, salads, all sorts of savoury main courses, casseroles, lasagnes and pies. Everything is the sort of thing you would make for someone else. She says Nick Tresidder took care of the photography side and had a personal link to the charity project -- with his son having been in and out of Starship Hospital. The book is also filled with pictures of children helping with cooking. It s a lovely generous sort of a project, Mrs Jacobs says. She already has three books under her belt, includ- ing Matakana, The New Zea- land Vegetable Cookbook and A Treasury of NZ Baking. Mrs Turner, who now runs a gift and homeware store, says it has been a huge relief to see the project come to fru- ition. It s turned the dream into a reality. It s everything I d hoped for. Mrs Jacobs adds: It s a good everyday cookbook -- it means no specialty trips to different stores. These are firm favourites cooked quite a lot by chefs. We hope that everyone buys it for Christmas. A Friends of Starship foodie event is also taking place this Sunday to cele- brate the new book with guest speakers Mrs Jacobs and Peta Mathias. See www.starship.org.nz/ events for more information and ticket sales. Comfort: Food for Sharing is $45 and available at book stores. Alternatively visit www.starship.org.nz/cook bookpurchase/ to buy the book online.
