" ... These remarkably simple dishes are replete with healthy vitality and infused with flavour. Based on traditional, nutrient-dense fresh fruits and vegetables, poultry and seafood, with accents of ginger, lime, lemon, basil, garlic and coconut, Sonja's dishes excite the palate. This is sustainable cuisine! ... But this is not just a cook book. It is also a book that takes the reader on a walk through the lush vegetation of the Cook Islands, while explaining the importance of each plant to the survival of the islands and the role that they play in island culture. Foodie or Greenie, come and explore the food plants of Aitutaki and the Cook Islands."--Back cover.

About the author (2011)

Dee Pigneguy came to New Zealand from Canada in 1963 and trained as a primary school teacher. Her interest in nutrition, healthy food and nature developed as she grew up on a remote coastal property in British Columbia. Her mother, Joan Donley engaged all her children in their self-sufficient lifestyle, growing fruit and vegetables, raising pigs, chickens, duck and goats and gathering shellfish at low tide .Dee believes her new book Exploring Nature¿s Pattern Magic will help people engage with nature and realise just how important the natural environment is to sustaining our own life here on Planet Earth.
