              "Peta Mathias has encountered many a lovelorn tale on her gastronomic travels around the world. Searching further, she has unearthed more stories - the heart-warming and heart-rending, the passionate and poignant, the macabre and merry - and in these retellings brings them all to... life. With her characteristic wit and colour, she also dishes up many of the ingredients of love: intriguing courtship rituals, such as bundling and the apple slice dance; poetry penned by those with their own stories to tell; and, of course, romantic recipes, purported aphrodisiacs and alluring delicacies. Entertaining, hilarious and informative, this book is a smorgasbord of love"--Publisher information.

              Beat Till Stiff: A Woman's Recipe for Living: A Woman's Recipe for Living (EPUB ebook – Main)

              By Mathias, Peta

              Beating egg whites till they're stiff is a metaphor for life - just when you thought your existence would never be more than flaccid transparent snot, something happens to turn it into tight white light. Once a counsellor, nurse and cook and now a writer, television presenter ...and all-round fabulous woman, Peta Mathias is the queen of transformation. In Beat Till Stiff, Peta shares lessons learnt in her pilgrimage through life, such as how she stopped strangling her mother, why redheads have more fun, and whether having an orgasm really makes a difference to sex, procreation or world peace. In her bestselling guide to womanhood Can We Help it if We're Fabulous?, Peta shared with us her thoughts on being a woman. In Just in Time to be Too Late, she turned her attention to what it means to be a man in the twenty-first century. Now, in Beat Till Stiff, Peta covers topics she considers important, naughty or personal, all with a bent towards life's many transformations. Some of the essays in Beat Till Stiff are scurrilous, many are funny and others autobiographical, but all are thoroughly entertaining.

              Burnt Barley (EPUB ebook – Main)

              By Mathias, Peta

              Winner of Best Literary Food Writing (in English) category at the World Cookbook Fair, this is a lively journey discovering Ireland's food, people and music. If Peta hadn't known of her Irish ancestry, her love of potatoes would have betrayed it. Peta always connects with a p...lace through its food, and in visiting the country of her forebears she set herself a difficult task. But it didn't take long for Peta to find the world-class restaurants hidden up windy cobbled streets, to savour the delights of grand country cooking, high-quality primary produce and seafood from sleepy fishing villages. She dances her way between such traditional fare as Guinness, barmbrack and black puddings and refined fusion dishes of roasted tomato and goat cheese charlotte with lentils and basil oil and cured wild salmon topped off with slugs of fine Irish whiskey. In this wonderful account of travelling through Ireland, Peta searches for its gastronomic heartland, introduces her intriguing relatives, discovers her love of music is intricately intertwined with Irish social life and eating habits, and spins tales both traditional and true.

With ten top...ics relevant to all women - Fashion, Food, Relationships, Music, Travel, Beauty, Work, Sex, Happiness and, of course, Men - Peta's sagacious, sexy and occasionally scurrilous book will encourage and inspire readers to reinvent, spice up, embrace and celebrate the lives they have. As well as recounting her own life lessons, Peta interviews a range of women - from psychologists to plastic surgeons, sex therapists to hairdressers, doctors to singers - and discovers what a woman needs to make her happy, independent and successful.

              A fabulous, exuberant book of food, travel and humour by two of New Zealands's best-loved cooks. Peta Mathias and Julie Le Clerc are in love with food, in love with travel and in love with India. In her characteristic exuberant, evocative and hilarious style, Peta relates how the...y got to know this fascinating country through its cuisine: be it street food, feasts, or an everyday meal cooked on the floor of a tiny shack. They have travelled to tea plantations in the mountains, stayed in palaces and slept on a train: that 'wonderland of unmitigated, primeval swamp muck'. While Peta has led various culinary tours, Julie has established a patisserie in an upmarket New Delhi hotel. This is no superficial flirtation with the country, but a full-blown love affair. The over 60 recipes showcase distinct regional traditions, passed on from the generous people they have met. Carefully chosen and adapted to be easy for the home cook, they are all mouth-wateringly delicious. They include such delicacies as Rajasthani white lamb curry, coriander cardamom chicken, almond sweet pudding and rose-petal ice cream. Julie's fabulous photographs convey the colour of the country, and are almost good enough to eat.
