Now, a book has been written about the nation's enduring love affair with deep-fried and battered food. Fish n' Chips -- The Great New Zealand Feed traces the origins of fish n' chips in New Zealand and celebrates some of the country's best chip shops. Author and photogra- pher Kevyn Male trav- elled the country gather- ing material for the book which is crammed with nostalgic photos that record a heritage all Kiwis can share. Male sampled menus, chatted to chip shop cooks, hung out with the people who catch the fish, and dropped in on Kiwis tucking into fish n' chips. He concludes that simple fish n' chips eaten out of newsprint by the sea remains the most popular meal with all ages. The book is published by New Hol- land and sells for $34.99. If your attempts at home baking have failed because you lack basic cooking skills, don't des- pair. Food writer Robyn Martin has written a gem of a book which tells you what most recipe books assume you already know. When a recipe says to cream the butter and sugar' it assumes the cook knows what to do. With this in mind, I was inspired to write whatIseeasacom- panion to these recipe books,'' Martin says. Hansells Little Book of Baking Basics includes step-by-step photos that explain skills needed to bake everything from a simple biscuit to a soph- isticated choux pastry. It also offers basic recipes and successful baking tips. The book is published by Chanel and Stylus and sells for $19.99.
