The Last Anzac (Biscuit)

You have to be fast. Kate’s popular Anzac biscuits disappear quickly. The sweet, crunchy rolled oat Anzac, is an iconic biscuit in New Zealand and Australia.

According to folklore, these well-keeping biscuits were baked by the womenfolk at home, and sent to soldiers in the NZ and Australian Army Corps, known as “ANZACS”, serving overseas in World War One.

 

These biscuits have a strong historical military connection. Follow this link to a “Today in New Zealand History” recording from 1950, to hear about the spirit of ANZAC: http://www.nzhistory.net.nz/media/sound/today-in-nz-history-anzac-day

As a purposeful item the bag has multitudes of form, style and application. And as a fashion item or accessory it can be a work of art in itself.

It’s time for a cookbook redesign. With so many ways to construct and arrange the elements in this type of book (photography, vector drawings, line sketches, collage…..) I’m thinking a few rough watercolours might help the artistic direction emerge.
