In Annabel Crabbís 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 ëI come in peaceí.
But food is a language that says so much more than ëPlease let me in, Madam Speakerí. To friends and family, food can say everything from ëIím sorry you had a bad dayí to ëCongratulations, you clever thingí. 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 to look the other way if you just want to eat it straight from the tin.
