A chance meeting on the beach
between friends has led to the creation
of an impressive cookbook which is
raising money for the Starship Foun-
New Zealand Guild of Foodwriters
president Lauraine Jacobs was
strolling along Omaha Beach earlier
this year when she met Jude Turner,
who was about to relinquish her role
as chairwoman of Friends of Starship.
Mrs Turner expressed her only
regret was not being able to finish a
charity cookbook project she d started.
I said to her, I think I can help ,
Mrs Jacobs says. Why don t we ask
members of the guild to contribute to
the book? I was keen to raise the pro-
file of food writers as New Zealand has
so many good ones.
As a result, Comfort: Food for
Sharing was born and the pair are
thrilled with the result.
Mrs Jacobs says the contributors,
who include dieticians, nutritionists,
foodies and chefs, have been incredibly
generous by sharing their favourite
It s the sort of food you could take to
someone who is a bit needy. It s soups,
salads, all sorts of savoury main
courses, casseroles, lasagnes and pies.
Everything is the sort of thing you
would make for someone else.
She says Nick Tresidder took care of
the photography side and had a per-
sonal link to the charity project -- with
his son having been in and out of
The book is also filled with pictures
of children helping with cooking.
It s a lovely generous sort of a proj-
ect, Mrs Jacobs says.
She already has three books under
her belt, including Matakana, The
New Zealand Vegetable Cookbook and
A Treasury of NZ Baking.
Mrs Turner now runs a gift and
homewares store and says it has been
a huge relief to see the project come to
It s turned the dream into a reality.
It s everything I d hoped for.
Mrs Jacobs adds: It s a good every-
day cookbook--- it means no specialty
trips to different stores. These are firm
favourites cooked quite a lot by chefs.
We hope that everyone buys it for
A Friends of Starship foodie event is
also taking place this Sunday to cel-
ebrate the new book with guest
speakers Mrs Jacobs and Peta
