In Ladies, a Plate: the Collection, Alexa Johnston's two stunning books of home baking are combined to make a gorgeous deluxe edition. Ladies, a Plate and A Second Helping were welcomed by home bakers for their tantalising presentation and extensive selection of recipes. Now all the joys of Cinnamon Oysters, Cream Lilies, Ginger Crunch, Meringues, Spicy Speculaas and many more traditional treats, come together in one beautiful collection.
Alexa Johnston works as a freelance art curator and writer. Her definitive biography of the iconic New Zealand hero, Sir Edmund Hillary: An Extraordinary Life, was a finalist in the Montana Awards. An enthusiastic and accomplished baker from a young age, Alexa has an impressive collection of both cooking utensils and Kiwiana cookbooks and her first cookbook Ladies, a Plate, published by Penguin in September 2008, was a sell-out success.
