Welcome to the final edition of What’s Cooking from Adele and Jonathan.
After six wonderful years bringing you every cookbook imaginable, meeting so many fabulous loyal customers and so many interesting chefs and food writers, and of course enjoying how the books you purchased inspired and delighted - we have sold the business.
We are immensely proud of our achievements of the past six years - being the first store in New Zealand to stock only cookbooks, thrilled to have hosted international guests such as Rick Stein, Peter Gordon, Anthony Bourdain, Bill Granger and more and welcomed many of the talented local food writers to the store. We have become an Auckland icon, a haven for food lovers and created a most pleasing in store experience for hundreds of visitors to enjoy.
Cook the Books has been a tremendous pleasure, but its time for us to move on. All is not lost though so please read on for the good news......
The New Owners…..
We are very pleased to introduce the new owners - Felicity and Michael O'Driscoll. They have been friends of the shop for a long long time and Felicity has amassed an extensive cookbook collection and is a very keen cook. Michael travels extensively and has eaten at some of the finest restaurants locally and overseas. They are young and enthusiastic and look forward to meeting and serving you.
New Location …..
Cook the Books will move to a new home on the popular Ponsonby Road strip. The new address is 81 Ponsonby Road - opposite McKelvie St with The Fairy Shop next door on one side and Witchery on the other. A great spot and a fabulous location with the added bonus of customer parking out the back. All the contact details - phone, fax, email and website - will remain the same.
Opening Day Ponsonby Road…..
The new Cook the Books will open it's Ponsonby Road store on Saturday 30th May- with an enticing and expanded range of books.
Our Last Day…..
Our last day of operation will be Saturday 23rd May 2009 closing at 4pm, so please pop in before then to say good bye.

We invite you to redeem any Gift Vouchers you may still have, prior to our final day please.
There are so many people who have been a tremendous support to us over the years and we extend our thanks to each and every one of you. We take with us special memories and experiences that will be greatly treasured. Thank you all for your patronage and loyalty.
