Here at F&P we’ve been doing a bit of documentation and story telling of late. You see, even though our heritage only dates back to the 1930’s, there are still countless stories to be told and significant milestones to be celebrated. And so it is with a hefty hard-back tome that we share with the world our history. Incredibly visual in its content, it’s filled with beautiful photographs which take the reader on a journey from the company’s inception to current day.
In addition to these images and as a result of finding ourselves in the fortunate position of being the F&P go-to gourmands, we were chuffed to be asked to write and shoot a selection of recipes to feature in this book. The brief stipulated we write recipes which would hark back to our history whilst concurrently tracking the course of New Zealand’s culinary evolution. And thus we experimented with pork terrine, boeuf bourguinon, jelly, pavlova, scones, pies and many more which we hope you will enjoy just as much as we enjoyed creating them.
So here’s to F&P, to our history and to our future!
