The cookbook Kāpiti: A Portrait Through Food is a labour of love by local photographer Joanna Piatek. It was put together with the help of publisher Michelle Lovi and features cafes, restaurants and eateries. The book also includes portraits of Kāpiti food producers such as KoaKoa Limoncello and Dark Horse Coffee and other local providers such as Mike King’s Finders Eaters and Kāpiti Island Nature Tours.
Showcasing 25 foodies throughout the Kāpiti Coast, Jo has collected stories and infused the taste of Kāpiti in a book full of recipes and photos. It’s a great gift for guests, people new to the area, or even for Kāpiti residents wanting to know more about local history. And why not add the book to a Kāpiti Goodies box for the ultimate local gift?
