The beautiful and talented Nadia was of course the star of the show as she moved easily among her guests chatting happily before addressing the audience.
We enjoyed beautiful canapes based on recipes in the book along with delicious wines from Martinborough Wines . Later after Nadia's address I managed to persuade her to let me have a copy of her notes and you will find them reproduced below.
Right - Nadia addressing the audience with her new website projected on the wall behind her.With her is Shaun Young, general manager - sales, retail and marketing for New Zealand King Salmon who introduced Nadia.
I have written previously about this truly appealing book that is filled with fresh, easy and delicious recipes. Included with my earlier piece was the recipe for Nadia's Marsala Chicken with Caramelised Pumpkin - do try it, I heartily recommend it.
Nadia's Kitchen Book Launch Address
Well, this is pretty cool.....18 months ago I would have never imagined attending my own cookbook launch. To write a cookbook is a dream I’ve had since I was 12 years old which was when I decided I would also have a cooking show called ‘Food in the Nude’. As a tribute, I thought maybe I should call this book by the same name – however my publisher Random House was honest and said they thought it might be a bit risky as it may only appeal to one particular type of audience. So instead, here we are with Nadia’s Kitchen.
And check out Nadia's new website also launched yesterday.
