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.

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.
