Ripe: A Fresh Batch at Cook the Books

After a rainy week the sun luckily came out last Saturday for a luscious afternoon tea at Cook the Books in Ponsonby to celebrate Ripe Deli's Second Cookbook "Ripe: A Fresh Batch" which has just been published. A very welcome successor to the first Ripe  Deli recipe book which appeared two years ago and from which I love to cook.
 
It was a great opportunity to sample some of the cakes from the book, to meet Angela Redfern (owner of Ripe Deli in Grey Lynn) who authored the book and chef Pip Wylie, two incredibly unasssuming and talented people.
 
My favourite, the moist and mooorish Feijoa cake with cream cheese icing.
 
Can't wait to try out some of the other recipes!
