Includes seven new recipes, including Parāoa Parai (Māori Fried Bread) and Pihikete Whetū (Star Biscuits), created by cook Kirsten Holtz, the book supports both tamariki and adults with their comprehension and confidence in te reo Māori.

Edmonds Taku Puka Tohutao Tuatahi is available in bookstores from the 29th of August.
