This 4th edition of The New Zealand Chef continues its focus on providing trainee chefs and their teachers with recipes and cookery methods based on the use of locally available produce. The New Zealand Chef provides in-depth information on classical techniques and contemporary styles to all levels of chef training.

This book is an invaluable guide for trainee chefs, chef tutors and lecturers as well as enthusiastic cooks wanting to improve their skills. Recent graduates from throughout New Zealand have contributed innovative feature recipes to this edition, and their inclusion adds to the strongly contemporary, local flavour and appeal of this book.

The New Zealand Chef provides a strong foundation for students studying to achieve qualifications both within the New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) framework and that of City and Guilds.
