Coromandel Flavour is a New Zealand/Aotearoa cookery book that captures the relaxed way of life we have here by the beach, and features local seasonal food. A mixture of artist's sketchbook, reportage photography and recipe book, it pleases the eyes and the tastebuds.
British-born artist Deborah Hide-Bayne passed through the Coromandel expecting little more than happy holiday memories. Instead she found a lifestyle that stopped her in her tracks. Some years later and she's a local - married with a young son, an orchard at her door and a view of the bush-clad hills behind. Life revolves around the seasons, the weather and whether the fish are biting.
