Congratulations to Petra Galler, who studied with us in the first years that NZSFW was established in Auckland. Earlier this year Petra published Butter, Butter: Sometimes more is more. 

Petra Galler is a baker who has worked in restaurants in Auckland and Melbourne for over 10 years. Her passion lies in pastry and baking and she hopes to pass on that joy by sharing her recipes and the stories behind them.

Her book is inspired by her family's heritage, these recipes have a very European sensibility, with a touch of Middle Eastern flavours.

They are sophisticated, featuring some nostalgic classics with a twist that are easy to make. Butter, Butter is divided into five sections: Cakes, Pastry, Dough, Cookies and Slices and Savoury.
