Author(s): Natalie Oldfield
Natalie's first cookbook Gran's Kitchen: Recipes from the Notebooks of Dulcie May Booker was published in March 2009 and was an instant bestseller. The concept was and is a great one and well-timed in the market: a collection of recipes from the notebooks of 95-year-old Dulcie May Booker selected by her granddaughter Natalie Oldfield. Gran's Family Table is the second book in the series and carries on the theme - mouth-watering tried and true recipes for cooking at home. Beautifully designed in a retro-modern look by the designer of the classic Al Brown cookbook Go Fish with full-colour photography by acclaimed photographer Todd Eyre. This will be a series that people will want to collect with tasty and approachable family dinners that the family can enjoy every day.
Natalie Oldfield is the owner of award-winning store Dulcie May Kitchen in Mt Eden, Auckland. Natalie opened the doors of her now renowned store in February 2009 to coincide with the release of her first self-published book, Gran's Kitchen. This book went on to win The Gourmand Book Award in Europe, for best local cuisine in New Zealand. Natalie's love for food and people meant she spent her formative years in the hospitality industry. It was during this time that her entrepreneurial endeavours led her to establish several corporate cafes and function venues, and, eventually, inspired by her grandmother, she opened her own establishment.
