A love of food, the pleasure of preparing, sharing and experiencing it is a lifelong lesson for all of us. To ensure your children experience that is a gift to them that will contribute to their socialisation and be, too, a lifelong pleasure.
For Stefan Posthuma-Grbic his mother was integral to his love of food and a myriad of experiences that went with it. But sadly she died young from the insidious ovarian cancer after many years as a successful business woman in the food industry with Rolls Choice, fashion too with Zorana G, and the publication of two successful cookbooks.
Time out after his mother’s death took Stefan overseas for a couple of years but coming home gave him the impetus to produce and publish a Capital Cookbook II combining signature recipes from local chefs, views and vistas of Canberra and the region he photographed and a culinary journey the home cook will enjoy.
The finished product is the kind of book that makes a perfect gift to anyone who loves this city and its food culture or to those who doubt it, but could learn to love it.
Launched by Gai Brodtman, as ambassador for Ovarian Cancer Australia at the National Library of Australia the guests were soon lining up for a purchase and a good deal of salivating over the recipes as they nibbled taste treats from the restaurants featured.
Published by Quicksand Publishing established by Zorana Grbic the quality is superb and as Gai Brodtman assured Stefan his mother would be very proud.
