HBAF 2020 Presents - Bella: My Life in Food

101 Hastings Street South, Hastings, Hastings

Annabel Langbein in conversation with Lizzie Russell.

For the first time, Annabel,Langbein, New Zealand’s most popular cookbook author, writes about her remarkable life and how food has shaped it, highlighting some of the recipes that have resonated most strongly with her over the years.

From her childhood fascination with cooking to a teenage flirtation as a Maoist hippie, to possum trapping and living off the land as a hunter and forager, to travelling and starting her own croissant business in Brazil, Annabel’s life has always been centred on food and nature. Out of this came an obsession with creating cookbooks, introducing a generation of cooks to her simple recipes for delicious, stylish meals.

In her new memoir 'Bella', Annabel writes vividly about her many adventures.
