Taste Waikato — the cookbook that is good enough to eat — was conceived as a fund-raiser for Rotary Cambridge and is proving to be a great success. Taste Waikato has received rave reviews and to date has raised over $39,000 for local charities.
Taste Waikato — a smorgasbord of gourmet delights —
offers easy, innovative recipes created and photographed by food professional Jan Bilton. Members helped: contact producers; catch a trout or two; and assist in taste testing and proof-reading. The recipes — developed by rotary member and food professional, Jan Bilton — feature beef, lamb, chicken, bacon, duck and salami; fish and seafood; cheeses and dairy delights; fruit; vegetables; truffles; nuts; honey; olive oil; tea; unique preserves; and wines and beers. These temptations are complemented by interesting, entertaining stories and anecdotes about the produce and producers.
The book was produced by Irvine Holt, a publishing company owned by Jan and her husband, journalist Michael Ryan.
