About Collectively Homegrown 

More than just a cookbook… This collective project has been crafted not only to tantalise your tastebuds but also to support a deserving organisation.

Collectively Homegrown is a community of recipes representing the incredibly diverse kitchen of Aotearoa, shared by chefs and home cooks alike. Inside you will find a treasure trove of recipes, from nostalgic treats like Nana’s cookies to modern twists on your favourite dishes. It’s a melting pot of culture and cuisine. 100% of profits raised from the sale of this book will be donated to Women’s Refuge NZ.

The book has been artfully divided into six chapters, each thoughtfully designed to appeal to various readers and home cooks. Starting with ‘The Gardener’ and ‘The Forager’, these chapters pay homage to plant-based and vegetable-centric recipes, showcasing the abundance of nature’s offerings. Transitioning to ‘The Fisherman’ and ‘The Butcher’, the focus shifts to sustainably farmed or caught meat and fish as the key components in enticing dishes. Finally, we have ‘The Baker’ and ‘The Raw Kitchen’, which present a delightful assortment of sweet treats suitable for the entire family. With its diverse range of recipes, Collectively Homegrown is destined to secure a place on kitchen shelves throughout Aotearoa, New Zealand.

Finally, this book embraces sustainability, Te Reo Māori and Tikanga Māori, diversity and inclusivity, and supports local communities while remaining delicious. It promotes ethical production and distribution, incorporates indigenous language and traditions, represents all parts of our community, and advocates for New Zealand-made products and local support. It’s a testament to the interconnectedness of these values, ensuring that every dish is not only mindful but also irresistibly tasty.

About the authors

Elke and Nadia are a mother and daughter duo, based in both Whangarei and Auckland. Together they own the social enterprise Husk and Honey, a fair-trade marketplace selling ethically and sustainably sourced home, living and gift products.

Recently Elke and Nadia also opened a physical space in Waipu, called the Cove Collective – a shared space showcasing curated pieces from both New Zealand and global makers, with a focus on women made, ethically sourced and environmentally friendly products.

Both Elke and Nadia love to cook, spending lots of time in the kitchen together cooking for friends and whānau.

Elke has a background in cooking, being a wedding caterer for over 10 years and Nadia just loves to cook… which is why when Nadia came to Elke with the idea of a collective cookbook, they both agreed it would be an amazing project to work on together.

Collectively Homegrown has been a passion project that Elke and Nadia have spent the last 18 months working hard on, collecting recipes, trialing them in the test kitchen and carefully putting together a treasure trove of a cookbook.

Collectively Homegrown is Nadia and Elke’s first book.
