The Edmonds name has been connected with the baking tradition in New Zealand for 125 years. This book includes 110 recipes, some first published in the original Edmonds' Cookery Book and others published since then - all of them New Zealand's favourites.
Since 1907 the Edmonds Cookery Book has been providing New Zealanders with 'economical recipes and cooking hints'. This title remains in the bestseller lists today. Food writers Sally Cameron and Sue Lyons have both previously worked on a number of other Edmonds publications. Sally was the food writer for the highly successful Food for Flatters, which has been reprinted numerous times, and the Mini series. Sue worked on The New Edmonds Junior Cookbook, The Illustrated Edmonds Cookbook; The Illustrated Edmonds Cookbook II, the Edmonds Cooking Class and Edmonds Great Tastes.
