NZ Rugby Kitchen in Gourmand World Cookbook Awards


Random House are proud to announce that the NZ Rugby Kitchen has been selected as a finalist in the Charity Fundraising category of the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards.

The NZ Rugby Kitchen contains a treasure trove of hearty, tasty recipes from some of New Zealand’s top rugby talent both present and past, with royalties going to the NZ Rugby Foundation. By taking time out of their busy schedules to participate in this project all of the players who have contributed have shown how important a charity the New Zealand Rugby Foundation is to them. The foundation is vital in supporting catastrophically injured rugby players financially and emotionally through fund-raising and other activities; and proactively works with the New Zealand Rugby Union to communicate the message of safety first.

Lisa Kingi, CEO for the foundation said “We are absolutely delighted with this news, being shortlisted for the Gourmand Awards is a great development for us. It’s not all about the financial return for us, whilst vital obviously, it is the improved public awareness of the Foundation as our key strategic focus and being able to reach so many new sectors through a creative idea which really excites us. It wouldn’t have been at all possible without the support of the New Zealand Rugby Union, New Zealand Rugby Players Association and the willingness of the players to contribute to our cause. Or of course the fantastic team at Random House to whom we are so grateful."

The Gourmand awards are extremely prestigious and 154 countries participated in last year’s awards, entering books in 53 categories. All countries, authors and publishers — big and small — are given equal opportunity to enter.

NZ Rugby Kitchen

Take some of New Zealand’s top rugby talent both present and past, throw in some food, add a worthy cause and you get an amazing treasure trove of hearty, tasty recipes.

If there’s one thing that rugby players all love, besides the game that is, it’s food. So what better way to raise some money for the New Zealand Rugby Foundation and celebrate its 25th Anniversary than to pull together the favourite recipes of some of our best loved players.

NZ Rugby Kitchen contains a wide range of dishes from the likes of Richie McCaw, Piri Weepu, Dan Carter, Jerome Kaino, Conrad Smith - the list goes on - plus past greats such as Colin Meads, Waka Nathan and Buck Shelford.

Fancy a quick weeknight meal? Why not try Keven Mealamu’s Teriyaki Beef, or Waka Nathan’s Fish Supreme. Want a dinner to impress? How about Victor Vito’s Beef Wellington or Melodie Robinson’s Pork Belly with Baby Beetroot and Lentils.

Oh, and just because most of the recipes have been provided by blokes doesn’t mean there aren’t any sweet treats. There’s always Sir Graham Henry’s Apple Sponge to end a meal, or Jerome Kaino’s Banana Cake for a lovely afternoon tea.

As well as fabulous recipes the NZ Rugby Kitchen also gives some insights into how well these guys can keep their cool even when they’re not on the field with candid shots of them relaxing, cooking and enjoying a bit of down time.

By taking time out of their busy schedules to participate in this project all of the players who have contributed have shown how important a charity the New Zealand Rugby Foundation is to them. The foundation is vital in supporting catastrophically injured rugby players financially and emotionally through fund-raising and other activites; and proactively works with the New Zealand Rugby Union to communicate the message of safety first.



All royalties from this book will go to the New Zealand Rugby Foundation. For more information on the foundation please visit www.rugbyfoundation.com NZ Rugby Kitchen RRP: $45.00 Released: 2 November 2012 Imprint: Random House New Zealand Extracts available.
