Egg & Spoon
2021 NZCYA Book Awards winner of the Elsie Locke Award for Non-Fiction.
A collection of scrumptious good healthy food— and an occasional indulgence. This is for children learning to cook independently and families to enjoy cooking together. This tasty collection includes after-school snacks, breakfast on a stick, cakes, slices and dinners. A considerable portion of the books food is naturally gluten-free or vegan.
Alexandra Tylee is the owner and chef at Pipi Café in the Hawkes Bay, a little pink house, cottage garden and the infamous pizza truck. Pipi celebrates eating together and taking pleasure in small things—hot chocolate in a special cup, foraged food, a boiled egg slipped into a pocket for later. Tylee trusts children to choose flavours and handle equipment in this joyful book that will set them on a lifetime love of healthy cooking and eating.
Giselle Clarkson’s illustrations are scrumptious and subversively playful.
