Special Delivery by Annabel Crabb and Wendy Sharpe


In Annabel Crabb's accidental second career as the host of political cooking show Kitchen Cabinet, she takes dessert to the homes of politicians, and the message of the dessert is clear.

It's 'I come in peace'. She famously won over Bob Hawke with a plate of Chocolate Choux Buns, Joe Hockey with an Apple Tangle Cake and Tony Abbott with a Nutty Quince Crumble.

But the best things ever said by food are conveyed in quiet tones, between friends and family, at times when most needed. It's more than, 'Here's a casserole', it's 'I mightn't be able to be with you but you're so important to me'.

Now in Special Delivery, Annabel has teamed up with her childhood best friend Wendy Sharpe to bring you over 100 of the most winning recipes to make and take to those you love.

Included here are recipes for savouries and, of course, a swag of delicious desserts, all with instructions on how best to transport them (or eat them straight out of the tin, if you so desire).

Annabel Crabb is the ABC's chief online political writer, writes a weekly opinion column for Fairfax, and is the bestselling author of The Wife Drought. Wendy Sharpe is a recipe consultant on Kitchen Cabinet and fellow baking tragic.

Special Delivery by Annabel Crabb and Wendy Sharpe is published by Murdoch Books (Sydney, NSW; hc 232 pp) and retails in Australia for RRP A$39.99
