Only a handful of spaces are left for foodies – and those who just like to eat – to come and see celebrity cook and TV personality Allyson Gofton share her tips for mastering the art of slow cooking this Sunday 2 May at The Shed on Northburn Station.
The event includes a sumptuous brunch cooked by chefs from the Shed at Northburn Station with recipes from her new cook book.
It’s the perfect event to experience with friends or family, and almost all of the tickets sold out within a few days of being available.
Paper Plus Cromwell Manager Aimee Paardekooper said that she only had a few tickets left and encouraged anyone thinking of going to secure theirs before they completely disappear.
“We are delighted and privileged to have Allyson Gofton come to Central Otago as part of her book launch,” she says.
“The new book is full of tasty, nutritious, great looking dishes that take very little time to prepare and are simmering away readying themselves while you are working, sleeping, out in the garden or off with the kids.”
Allyson Gofton is a well known New Zealand cook and TV personality, having assisted Graham Kerr both here and abroad, and becoming the Chief Executive Officer of the New Zealand Nutrition Foundation.
She was also Food Editor for Next magazine for many years and appeared nightly on our screens as presenter of Food In a Minute. She is now Editorial Director of Real Magazine and has written 19 cook books. Allyson is a working mum with two young children and a very busy husband who all love her home baking.
The Allyson Gofton event is a continuation of the Book and Author events Paper Plus has held in Central Otago over the last two years.
Paper Plus has brought authors such as Paullina Simons, Nicky Pellegrino, Tim Shadbolt, Dave Dobbyn and Kerre Woodham in recent years.
“We get fantastic support from the reading community here in Central Otago and because of this support publishers are keen to assist us in organising these events,” Aimee says.
