BOOKS Boating tales and recipes


Two of the Titirangi district’s best-known anglers have been busy at the keyboard producing a couple of entertaining books. Fishing writer Peter Jessup has released a companion to last year’s Fishermen’s Tales, another collection of entertaining stories from salt and fresh water entitled Boaties’ Tales. As the back cover states: “The happiest two days of a boaties’ life are


the day he buys his boat and the day he sells it.” Boaties’ Tales tells what happens between those two events.


Jessup, MC of the annual Manukau Monster fishing contest run by the Titirangi RSA, has 40-plus years’ experience on the water, working on commercial fishing boats, sailing and amateur angling. He has run aground on both the Manukau and Kaipara Harbours and, while on a charter trip to the Three Kings, was swept onto a reef off North Cape. “There is seldom just the one thing that goes wrong when people


get in trouble at sea,” Jessup says. He studied sinkings and disasters involving everything from tinnies, through yachts and large launches, to the largest ships plying the oceans and provides examination of the reasons behind these, and analysis of why some shipwreck victims die and some survive. There are amusing stories too, including the tale of former Waitemata Mayor Tim Shadbolt’s boat literally falling apart on the Manukau. Adam Clancey presents NZ Fishing on Prime TV and produced the


show NZ Food Culture starring Pio Terei for the channel. He’s taken recipes from the show, added more and turned the nationwide quest for the quintessential Kiwi feed into a cookbook as a follow- up to his Snapper Cookbook. Clancey and Terei tell how they chased down wild pork, gathered mussels and pipi, caught snapper and whitebait and then served it

up. Clancey provides new ideas on the traditional hangi, details the stories behind Kiwi curries and spaghetti bolognese and confirms that the pavlova was indeed invented in New Zealand. Some meals are restaurant quality, others the simple Kiwi couture.


“The idea is to present meals that people can cook themselves,” Clancey says. He’s also included a section on Polynesian food and one on preserves.


Boaties’ Tales is published by Hurricane Press; $25. NZ Food Culture is published by David Bateman; $35.
