Raglan’s MasterChef NZ winner Aaron Brunet will launch his long-anticipated cookbook nationally next week. To celebrate he’s planned a Saturday afternoon event at the Old School Arts Centre for locals to come along and “taste a few things”.
All are welcome, the chef described by judge Simon Gault as a culinary “rock star” told the Chronicle. Aaron’s got in mind soup and the sourdough bread he loves to bake, followed by a sweet.
He will also sign copies of his book ‘Cook With Me’ which represents a year’s work, he says, and is on sale officially from Friday April 4. Published by Random House as part of Aaron’s rich prize package, it’s described as an evocative cookbook which “opens the door to his life in beautiful laid-back Raglan and delivers his favourite recipes”.
Photographs in the book include shots of the “gorgeous” Raglan environment.
Aaron will talk briefly too of the MasterChef experience, his work on the book and what he hopes to do next.
Copies of his book will be available at the event ($49.90).
*So he has some idea of how many to cater for please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to attend the free book launch at the Old School in Stewart Street, from 4-6pm on Saturday April 5.
