I cook what excites me and the world as a whole excites me more than a region defined by political boundaries.”—from the Introduction“New Zealand chefs Peter Gordon and Anna Hansen, who also own the Providores in London, have brought their cheeky cooking style stateside. Gordon is renowned for his East-meets-West fusion cooking.”—New York Daily News“Thanks go to [consulting chefs Peter Gordon and Anna Hansen] for an enticing reason to get out of bed on the weekend.”—Time Out New York
