Feedback from Customers

You are a gem!  I received the book and I am so excited to try some new ideas.  I spent the entire day yesterday peeling and chopping and I still have tons more to prepare for the freezer.  I just don't have it in me to throw away one piece of fruit, unless it's bruised of course... Thank you again for the freezer tip.  Best Regards and Warm Blessings....

Author's note
I must admit that, when I was first asked to write this book, I was apprehensive. A whole book on feijoas!
Once I began the feeling changed. I was pleased, for example, to find an affinity between feijoas and pork. This enabled me to include a short savoury section, something I had not considered at first.

The recipes come from a variety of sources; some are developed from scratch in my own kitchen, others are adapted from existing recipes and others still are taken directly from other cooks and writers.

Where a recipe is taken directly from another cook or writer, I have acknowledged my source. Acknowledgment is more difficult for the adapted recipes as I have either changed them dramatically from the original, or the original was taken from many years worth of hand-written notes, the source of which were not recorded.

The Review

 Review from Cuisine Information for Libraries

'.....you'll find savoury feijoa dishes, feijoa muffins, and cakes, feijoa desserts , and feijoa sweet treats. The former owner of a catering business in Sydney, author Wyn Drabble returned to New Zealand a decade ago. He now works as a caterer, teacher and food writer, scribing for Cuisine on occasions. He is based in Hawke's Bay, the country's fruitbowl, where feijoas are prolific, so he knows what he's talking about."
