Iconic Auckland Restaurant Releases Recipe Book

Iconic Auckland Restaurant

Celebrates Three Decades with Release of Recipe Book

Tuesday, 20 September - After thirty years, Cazador, Auckland’s iconic Auckland game and wild food specialist restaurant, is sharing its recipes for the first time in a limited-edition cookbook titled Cazador - game, offal & the rest, on sale from 10 October.

Featuring classic Cazador dishes selected by second-generation family owners Dariush Lolaiy and Rebecca Smidt, this limited edition cookbook includes recipes for game birds, venison, boar, rabbit, hare, charcuterie, vegetables and desserts, as well as a guide to home butchery, underpinned by the sustainable cookery ethos that sets Cazador apart.

Co-owner and Chef Dariush Lolaiy says “We're out on a limb at Cazador - just outside of the city, just beyond the average palate.”

“This book reflects our individualism and our independence. It's doesn't fit a brief, it's our own expression and there are just 1000 copies for sale. It's recipes, it's a cookbook and it’s a memento of a special time and place.”

In keeping with the spirit of the fiercely independent restaurant, Cazador - game, offal & the rest is a gorgeous, self-published book, featuring elegant photography by Pippa Drummond, beautifully designed by Tim Donaldson and Amanda Gaskin. It's FCP 150gsm paper, has exposed binding and is a limited edition of 1000 copies, each hand numbered and signed by the authors.

“With considered photography and nostalgic design, we've made a book befitting the thirty-year legacy of our restaurant,” Co-owner and Restaurant Manager Rebecca Smidt says.

“The recipes are achievable, for those willing to spare the time, but this book is more than a how-to. Painterly images might inspire that long overdue dinner party, and the linen cover and weighty pages are palpable expressions of our passion for this restaurant. Pour a glass of wine, leaf through dusty hued pages and absorb the history of one of New Zealand's last remaining culinary stalwarts.”

Cazador - game, offal & the rest is an object in and of itself, and is likely not what's expected from Cazador - the meaty, huntery place. It's classic, sensitive, informative and beautiful to hold and look at.

Gordon Campbell: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable. Director Christina Pluhar engenders this distinctive tonality associated with the ensemble she founded in 2000 by inviting musicians and vocalists from around the world to collaborate on specific projects illuminated by her musicological research.

Scoop Review Of Books: We’re All Lab Rats

A couple of years ago, there were reports that Silicon Valley executives were sending their children to tech-free schools. It was a story that dripped of irony: geeks in the heart of techno-utopia rejecting their ideology when it came to their own kids. But the story didn’t catch on, and an awkward question lingered. Why were the engineers of the future desperate to part their gadgets from their children? More>>
