The Quokka Logic and Baking Book is representing New Zealand at the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards in November 2023. This is the Olympics of the cookbook world, so a massive honour for Kiwi author Karen McMillan!
Woman’s Day ~ ‘This cookbook is the perfect way to entertain kinds on the next rainy weekend. With lots of easy and delicious recipeRevis to choose from, as well as quirky quokka sayings, young cooks are guaranteed to learn lots and have fun creating these yummy baking treats!’
Motorhomes, Caravans and Destinations Magazine ~ ‘‘The perfect book to introduce or rediscover the delights of home baking, as well as a fun excuse to spend time with children (or grandchildren) in the kitchen. Accompanied by retro-styled photographs (cute enough to frame), this offering of more than 40 easy-to-follow recipes includes cakes, loaves, muffins, biscuits, slices, small treats, and desserts. It’s a wonderful selection of recipes, packed with personality to enjoy across the generations.’
NZ Booklovers ~ ‘Just a few pantry staples are needed to make many of these recipes. The clearly written, step-by-step instructions are easy for young bakers to follow. For each recipe, Karen McMillan has created and photographed an enchanting still life. The recipe is prettily plated and is surrounded by an artful arrangement of objects, including tiny plastic creatures, sprigs of leaves and flowers, and loveable soft toys. It’s been fun to bake these easily doable and yummy recipes from The Quokka Logic and Baking Book and have a laugh at Mrs Quokka’s illogical quotes.’
