              Can We help It If We're Fabulous?: And other thoughts on being a woman (Paperback)

              By Mathias, Peta

              Inspirational, razor-witted and funny, Can We Help It if We're Fabulous is Peta Mathias at her wisest - and naughtiest. The irrepressible Peta Mathias is a woman who has never been afraid to embrace life with all its glorious inconsistencies, joys and heartbreaks. With ten topics... 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.

              Never Put All Your Eggs in One Bastard: a memoir (EPUB ebook – Main)

              By Mathias, Peta

              Funny, passionate, outrageous and honest, this is a memoir about travel, house renovations, food, music, men and change. 'I've escaped more houses than I've said Hail Marys.' Peta Mathias has been making major moves since leaving home to train as a nurse, before living in C...anada, London and later France, where she set up her own restaurant. Although she returned to New Zealand, writing food books and making television series, she continued to yoyo back to Europe and started culinary tours to Spain, Italy, Morocco, India, Vietnam, and the recurring attraction: France. In this 'memoir of sorts', Peta looks back at the patterns of her life while she embarks on the next big stage in it: selling her beloved cottage in Auckland to buy a dilapidated old house in Uz s in the south of France and transforming the old wreck into a stylish home and cooking school. This new domesticity is set against her nomadic instincts and past history of running away from all conventional expectations of settling down. Spiced with recipes, the thrills and tribulations of reinventing yourself and her trademark humour, this book is really about never putting all your eggs in one bastard.
