              Starch Work Done by Experts: Chinese Laundries in Aotearoa New Zealand (Paperback)

              Chinese laundries first opened in the 1880s and were an integral part of New Zealand's social fabric until at least the 1950s. How did they develop in towns from Southland to the far north before slowly disappearing after the 1940s? Who ran them and how did they fit into their co...mmunities? Starch Work by Experts: Chinese Laundries in Aotearoa New Zealand tells the story of the laundrymen, their families and customers. Hand laundries were one of four main occupations for early Chinese settlers, along with mining, market gardening and storekeeping. They provided a low-cost stepping stone to a new life through hard work, skill and long hours. This book counters the stereotype of Chinese laundry work as menial and unskilled. While Chinese laundries were humble establishments, Chinese laundrymen (and women) were experts in starching, particularly men's shirts and detachable collars. Blending documentary research, personal stories and fascinating images, Starch Work by Experts goes beyond the grille to step inside the world of steaming coppers, hissing irons and perfectly starched collars.

              Cooking for Optimists
                 

              Cooking for Optimists (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Cooking for Optimists is the result of a decade of thinking, writing and cooking from author Nicole Stock. The book celebrates cooking - all of its meditative, frustrating, rewarding, soul-destroying complexities. There isn't any hyperactive fist pumping about the magic of some s...lightly tweaked pasta recipe, but there is genuine, inspiring enthusiasm for the perfection of the crunch of pastry, or the wobble of a just-set ganache tart. If there was a theme to this book, "unpretentiousness deliciousness" would be it. Recipes have been compiled not by trend, nor by how they might photograph, but by taste. As a passionate home cook, she is considerate of oven space and timing, realistic with the pressures of jobs and kids and general busyness, but also instils a sense of wonder and giddy gluttony that sweeps you along and makes you, too, eager to cook.
