A Culinary journey through New Zealand with the Topp Twins

It’s time to grab your apron strings and lasso your neighbour’s free-range pig! The Topp Twins are back with a gorgeous book of mouth-watering recipes to see you right the whole year round.

Join Dames Lynda and Jools as they go on a trip around New Zealand meeting passionate food producers, home cooks and lovers of life in Topp Country: A Culinary Journey Through New Zealand with The Topp Twins.

The Topp Twins bring us tales from the countryside through the universal pleasure of food and love, as they meet 60 ethical farmers and growers.  Their deep love for the land and its people is interwoven with inspiring stories, poems and around 75 recipes, including closely guarded family secrets.

There are recipes meaty and veg and from sweet to savoury, for breakfast, lunch,  dinner and pud. Nana’s Bacon Balls, Linda’s Oat-Crusted Roast and Grandma Hora’s Apple Shortcake, too. You get to meet the people, all heartlanders, who made the recipes and hear the stories behind them, too. Food made with love and all in full colour.

The Twins’ diverse appeal is reflected in the people they meet: from free-range pig farmers in the deep rural south to urban taco-trucking hipsters. As they travel around New Zealand they discover a land full of top tucker and great yarns.

The Twins’ comedy characters, Camp Mother and Camp Leader, present Saucy Tips, while the Bowling Ladies share recipes and tips for their retro but ever-popular Tasty Treats. Rural blokes, the Kens, have penned poems celebrating the country lifestyle and what it means to be a Kiwi, in love with our land and its bounty.
