Cooking 4 Change - THE New Zealand Celebrity Cookbook!

NZ$ 29,710

Cooking 4 Change is a Kiwi celebrity cookbook, featuring 101 famous Kiwi faces. We'll go behind the curtain and show you their favourite recipes and share their most intimate food stories.

The Kickstarter Edition of the book offered here will help us to get the retail version in stores. 

The retail version will be giving all profits to four of New Zealand's most deserving charities.

Yes, just like every other cookbook, there will probably be yet another chicken roast in there. But it could be Sam Neil’s Chicken roast.

We want to show you the diversity of Kiwi cooking through the eating habits of our most recognisable faces. From Tiki's eggs to Hilary Barry's gourmet fusion extravaganza.

We want to produce the first print run of the book, and film the experience.

We want to turn our adventure visiting each famous NZer into special behind-the-scenes featurettes exclusively for our backers.

Once the book has been made, we’re going to give you the first edition. This will be a Kickstarter Exclusive and is only available through this campaign. All cookbooks purchased through this campaign will be signed by Dick Frizzell.

Then, you’ll be able to see the second edition in stores – where you’ll spot your name printed inside it as one of our very special backers.

Proceeds from the sales of the retail edition will be donated to charities. By supporting this Kickstarter project, you're helping us make the cookbook a reality.

 Proceeds from the Retail Edition will be donated to these charities

We have 101 celebrities on board. Here's a selection:

Plus many more. We will have 101 famous Kiwis cooking for you.

Getting a cookbook like this made takes time and money. 

Funds from this Kickstarter campaign will be used to pay for the production of the book including photography, design, filming and writing.

No celebrity will be getting paid or making money on this cookbook. All the celebrities in this book are donating their time and networks to making this project come to life. They’re all chipping in.

It will also fund the first print-run of 1000 books. The books produced for this campaign will be FIRST EDITION KICKSTARTER-EXCLUSIVE. This means that not only will you get one of the very first copies, you’ll also be able to prove to your friends that YOU helped to make this happen.

We can only publish this book with YOUR enthusiasm, support and generosity.

Every backer at $40 or above will get a SIGNED COPY of the book.

This book has been created with the good old Kiwi attitude: “Yep, sure can!”

Every one of the celebs featured in the book have pitched in their ideas when we discussed the product with them. And it will look like this:

  • Ca. 450-500 pages (that’s a lot!)
  • Dimensions: 260mm (H) x 200mm (W) – Portrait
  • Paper: 120gsm Golden Sun Woodfree
  • Hardback cover
  • Retail price: $59 (so worth it!)
  • Expected publishing date: June 2016 (If you choose a reward that contains a cookbook you don’t have to wait that long. You will receive exclusive updates including interviews, behind the scenes footage and photos every time we visit a celebrity).

EVERY backer will have their name published in both the Kickstarter-exclusive version of the cookbook AND the version that goes on sale in stores.

We’re setting up a behind-the-scenes website for all our backers. Support the book and you’ll get access to the featurettes we make, as well as updates on how we’re going.

Only want to know how Tiki has his eggs? Get access to the recipe and photos for the celebrity of your choice before the book gets published.

Available at the $10 reward level.

You'll get an apron (as modelled by the very handsome Colin Mathura-Jeffree), and a tea towel (as modelled by an oven).

 We'll even throw in a wooden spoon.

Available at the $25 and $250 reward levels.

As modelled by our celebrities

 Available at the $60, $750 and $1000 reward levels. 

 All our hoodies and tees will be made by Mr Vintage.

Available at the $100, $750, and $1,500 reward levels.

At the $250 reward level, you can get your hands on a 'Man To Man' print, as shown below.

At the $750 and $1,500 reward levels, you can get a limited edition Cooking 4 Change print, signed and personalised by Dick Frizzell himself!

At $1,500 get one of FIVE personal studio visits. Sit down with Dick in his studio and have a chat. While you’re there, pick up your rewards (and get them personalised!)

We would also like to thank Tiki Taane, Tom Abercrombie, Amanda Billing, Teuila Blakely, Erin Simpson, Colin Mathura-Jeffree, Brooke Howard Smith and Jimmy James Fletcher for helping us make this awesome, almost Oscar-worthy Kickstarter video.

Muchos Gracias also to… Kelly our amazing photograher, Shene and Sam from Gilchrist Media, Humph and his team from 8Com, Alison Brewer and Coco Frizzell. Oh yes, and of course Jude Frizzell for letting us film all of this in her kitchen. We love ya Jude!!

Risks and challenges

Last year I was involved in designing parts of the Great New Zealand Cookbook, which has been a roaring success. I have designed the cover in the typical Frizzell fonts and other parts of the book.

My team and I understand the process of putting together a book and getting it on the shelves.

A few years earlier I wrote and co-published ‘Dick Frizzell: The Painter’ and ‘It’s All About The Image’. Both books are available online and in bookstores near you.

For ‘Cooking 4 Change’ we have gathered a team of experts to help us with this project including Gary Stewart (New Zealand’s most experienced cookbook designer), and 8com (the guys behind the amazing Air New Zealnd safety videos).

Plus we have our own team of editors (Siana), photographers (Kelly & Phil) and videographers (Shene & Sam) who have all done this before.
