star letter winner

BETTER CHICKEN I truly love your magazine. Every single photo is stunning, and the recipes are fantastic and doable. I have been trying out butter chicken recipes for years, but have never been able to find one which I would classify as authentic… until now! I consider it to be even better than a takeaway, which really says a lot. I served it with sesame naan and pilau rice and it was really fantastic. Thank you for this recipe that will be made for many, many years to come. Ilze Jacobs This month’s star letter wins a copy of Ripe Recipes: A Third Helping.

WAFFLE ON! Thank you so much for your wonderful magazine, I never miss an issue. I loved the Cosy Classics special, especially the savoury waffles on the cover.

My family and I really appreciate all the new recipes and tips – it stops dinnertime from being boring and I always find a few favourites to keep in my dinner folder. I have quite the collection now!

Say hi to hemp The rising star of the superfood world is now on our supermarket shelves. The rules around selling hemp for food in New Zealand have changed, so what should we know? Firstly, hemp is different from marijuana – the seeds don’t produce any kind of mind-altering effect, as they don’t contain enough tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Only seeds from the low-THC cannabis sativa can be used in food. The seed is the single most nutrient-dense seed, with more protein per 100g than steak. As one of the best sources of complete protein in the plant world, it contains all 21 known amino acids. It’s an excellent source of gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), which helps with skin disorders, PMS, menopause, cancer, heart disease, arthritis and inflammation. Like most plant foods, hemp seed is a…
