Two nights ago i stayed up into the dark and shared with you, husband’s Mastercook. Summer. Ponsonby. SPQR.
All revved up today whilst playdates are ravaging our house, i have located the snaps from last Winter’s Mastercook with Alex, aka Elmsey.
What a guy this fellow is.
He’s my brother-in-law (of nearly a year).
Someone with big smiles, hands and feets.
Someone patient, motivated, ready-for-a-laugh, loyal and loving.
I’m so happy for my little sis, and they make Mastercook so much fun, and so much

Husband surprised me for my birthday last June and booked the babysitter, and kidnapped me into the cold.
After a wine shop at New World Mount Maunganui, he told me he was busting, and oh what a stroke of luck that we were so close to Tessie and Elmsey’s house for a pee-stop.
We arrived to homemade Happy Birthday signs, streamers, a roaring fire for the June night

Brother Jordan was there too. A true treat. Thanks team.
Alex rustled up Yotam Ottolenghi’s Beef meatballs with fava beans & lemon.

We all ate too uncomfortably much.
There was warmed pita and homemade hummus puddled in olive oil to start.
Funny & deep talk.
Aretha Franklin on vinyl was playing on the newly pur-chay-sed turntable.
Semolina, coconut & marmalade cake was to finish, around the fire, whilst sinking into the leather couch, and the boxer dog Bruce.
is a treasure tome.
Or if you’re a greeny or minimalist frequent Ottolenghi’s website here:
Which cookbook would you Mastercook from?
