About the Author

Authors Bio, not available


“As with all life stories, the individual details make it extraordinary—and in Anne Else’s case the details are more extraordinary than many.”  —Ruth Nichol, New Zealand Books

“I fell in love with the style of this book from the start . . . it is an absolute delight to read this delicate morsel of a book that leaves a lingering taste of a meal lovingly shared and enjoyed.”  —Elisabeth Marrow, Daily Post

“She has the writer’s instinct for a good story and the editor’s keen eye for accuracy and brevity. . . . This is a disarmingly intimate life account that fast forwards and winds back as she savors and suffers a life of friendship, motherhood, love, loss and mealtimes.”  —Susette Goldsmith, Listener

“The only thing it left me wanting was more. Like a good meal, I just didn’t want it to stop. It felt like a real privilege to read such and intimate and honest story.”  —Sue Kerr, Five Course Garden

“Anne Else writes beautifully about food memories, good and bad, and interweaves funny, interesting, and at times sad stories about people in her life. The recipes mentioned are collected at the end, by the time you finish this life-affirming memoir, you’ll feel like those recipes have been passed on by an old friend.”  —Shelley Howells, Kia Ora

“After flicking through just a couple of pages The Colour of Food had me hooked . . . it reads like a novel, but it is real, touching and insightful. . . . An absolute gem.”  —Nom Nom Panda

“I hadn’t quite anticipated how [Else] would draw me in with her incredibly vivid storytelling—I ended up reading the whole thing in less than 24 hours. . . . Her experiences are rich and varied, she is open and honest, and the emotions—at both ends of the spectrum—reach out of the book and grab you the whole way through.”  —Rosa Slack, The Culinary Explorations of Mrs Cake

"Seriously good writing is Anne’s staple, with well-blended handfuls of humour, social commentary and a couple of dozen recipes included." —Ruth Brassington, Scoop
