Recipes and memories  from the childhood of Natalie Oldfield


Food, family and love are the very essence of who Natalie Oldfield is and where she comes from. Inspired by her grandmother, Natalie opened Dulcie May Kitchen to coincide with the release of her first self-published book Gran’s Kitchen.

Gran’s Kitchen sold over 15,000 copies in New Zealand alone, won The Gourmand Book Award in Europe for best local cuisine in New Zealand, and Natalie is now published in Australia and Great Britain.

Dulcie May Kitchen won 'Best Cake Shop' (Metro magazine 2009), was voted one of the 'Top 50 Cafés' (Metro magazine 2010), as well as an award for 'Best Pressed Sandwiches’ (Metro magazine 2010).

Although Dulcie passed away in 2009, Natalie and her family will always admire the way she lived her life. So it is with Dulcie in mind that Natalie has written Gran’s Family Table.

One of the many things Natalie admired about her Gran was her ability to be adventurous with food. She never lost this vibrancy of spirit, and, even at the age of 96, she maintained an interest in trying new things.

Most of the recipes you’ll find in this book are Dulcie’s tried-and-true personal versions of much-loved New Zealand classics. Others are more modern, as Dulcie could certainly move with the times.

Natalie and her sister Michelle have also included their own family favourites — some with their own personal touches and variations as well as additional recipes from their mother Heather.

As Dulcie’s style of cooking is all centred around simple, fresh and flavoursome food, Natalie has provided meal options that are delicious, rich in flavour and colour, and easy to cook.
Gran’s Family Table is a sumptuous cookbook that will evoke memories of past family meals and picnics.
