Product Description

Host of top-rating ABC TV show Kitchen Cabinet, Annabel Crabb, shares recipes for fabulous food that travels.

In Annabel Crabb’s accidental second career as the host of political cooking show Kitchen Cabinet, she negotiates her way into the homes of Australian politicians, bringing dessert - the internationally recognised culinary code for ‘I come in peace’.

But food is a language that says so much more than ‘Please let me in, Madam Speaker’. To friends and family, food can say everything from ‘I’m sorry you had a bad day’ to ‘Congratulations, you clever thing’. And it means still more when brought to the door.

Now, in Special Delivery, Annabel has teamed up with her best friend from childhood, fellow food tragic and Kitchen Cabinet recipe consultant Wendy Sharpe, to bring you recipes for those knockout desserts as well as tons more ideas for soups, salads, pastries, breads and other treats ideally suited to make and take to those you love.

Each recipe is offered up with transport instructions or an implicit promise.

Wendy Sharpe is Annabel's oldest friend from preschool days. She and Annabel have delivered countless meals and edible care packages to each others' houses when living in any of three common cities over the years.

      Comments about Special Delivery:

      Looking at a fairy cakes recipe in the special delivery book. Firstly it doesn't say how many hole mini muffin tin 12 or 24? Nor does it say how many it makes- so leaves me pretty clueless as I was planning to do it on my daughters birthday. I guess if I am really keen I will have to see how many of the holes it fills of my 24 hole mini muffin tin- disappointed these are basic things every good recipe book from women's weekly would not miss out.

        This cook book has a great idea behind it - food you can prepare to take to others for various reasons such as your friend is sick or you want to take something different to a BBQ. DOn't be put off by the fact recipes are vegetarian plus fish only. Many recipes can easily have chicken or bacon added.

        Great recipes with entertaining introductions!

        Comments about Special Delivery:

        I love this cookbook, not least because I love Annabel Crabb and the recipes are introduced with her usual witty prose - some are recipes that she used on Kitchen Cabinet and relevant anecdotes are shared. The premise of food that one can take to another location is a unique and lovely one - there are great tips on how to transport each one. And the recipes in general don't disappoint - I've had a couple of underwhelming outcomes but despite only owning for six months there are several recipes I have made multiple times and they are now part of the regular go-to repertoire. Special mention to the Cloud Cake and the Persian Love Cake in the dessert section - which is about half of the book!

                I've used this cookbook a lot and all the recipes work very well. Great for family dinners and the commentary is often very funny. A pleasure to read.
