New Zealand Recipes


Traditionally, New Zealand cuisine combined the traditional cuisine of the indigenous Maori people, and, British recipes, introduced by settlers from the United Kingdom (although of course modified to use locally available ingredients). Although these two traditions remain the mainstays of New Zealand cuisine today, as travel has become more available in recent years, more cosmopolitan influences are starting to appear in New Zealand cuisine - these include influences from Europe and Asia, such as French, Italan and Chinese inspired recipes.

Some popular dishes in New Zealand include:
  • Colonial goose - A leg of lamb, specially prepared to resemble goose (which was much desired but unavailable in early colonial New Zealand). The bone is carefully removed and replaced with dried apricots and honey. The meat is then marinated in red wine, and finally roasted.

  • Fish and chips - Deep-fried fish in batter or breadcrumbs, and fried potatoes.

  • Meat pies

  • Roast lamb
Some popular desserts in New Zealand include:
  • ANZAC biscuits - Both New Zealand and Australia claim to have invented this dish for ANZAC troops sent to fight in the Gallipoli campaign in World War I. ANZAC biscuits are biscuits made from rolled oats, coconut and syrup, a recipe specifically chosen because it would preserve well during the long sea voyage to Europe

  • Hokey pokey ice cream - Vanilla ice cream containing small lumps of toffee.

  • Lamingtons - Cubes of sponge cake, covered with chocolate icing and dessicated coconut. The cubes are cut in half, and a layer of strawberry jelly (jam) or cream is spread between the two halves.

    Lamingtons

  • Pavlova - As with ANZAC biscuits, original authorship of this dessert is a point of friendly dispute with Australia. Pavlova is a maringue with a crispy exterior, but a fluffy, light, interior.

Product Description:
In the past two decades, cuisine and culinary history have attracted increasing attention, with both popular and academic books reflecting the growth of interest. Recipes are both sensitive markers of the socioeconomic conditions of their times and written representations of a culture's culinary repertoire yet, despite the vast number of cookbooks that survive, they have not been the primary focus of research projects. Acknowledgement of their potential contribution to our understanding of culinary history has been slow. This book is a first in its field.

Ph 0064-021-028-10045 Email lh.keeper@hotmail.co.nz Paul was a relieving lighthouse keeper in the 1980s. He went to stations all over New Zealand taking over from the permanent keepers when they took annual or sick leave. In this book he describes the job, workings of the light, shipwrecks, search and rescue, weather, communications, anecdotes. For each of the 10 lighthouses in the book, from the Hauraki Gulf to Fiordland, he tells of the local food available and his own recipes for cooking that food. The book also covers a brief history of lighthouses worldwide and in New Zealand, automation and demanning, Maori history and legend, and an epilogue about returning to Puysegur Point, Fiordland, in 2015 with Neil Oliver for the Coast NZ television series. Being qualified as a chef (10 years at Fisherman’s Table, Paekakariki) and as a meteorologist (Flight Briefing Officer, Paraparaumu Airport), he writes with knowledge. Excerpt from the Puysegur Point chapter. “It isn't the gusts which make you fall over in a strong wind. It's the lulls. Walking about in hurricane-force winds is like being on a tightrope. Just as you sort out the correct body angle to lean into the wind, it drops 30 knots and you end up on the deck. Puysegur Point is wild. Wild weather, wild seas, wild bush, wild animals and wild men. Located on the south-western tip of the South Island, in Fiordland National Park, it has been a lighthouse station since 1879. Keepers loved and hated Puysegur Point. Most times when I was there the wind was at least gale force (on average over 34 knots). On days when it was relatively calm sandflies would swarm. It was essential to wear a hat to stop the things from crawling through your hair to your scalp. The scenery, though, was spectacular. At sea, long lines of 20-foot swells crashed up against reefs and very rugged coastline. Inland there was original native bush. In summer the flowering rata provided a magnificent splash of red against the many shades of green. Gold to pan, crayfish and whitebait to catch and deer to shoot made the weather somewhat bearable. I loved the place.”
