For home cooks who want to support better animal welfare on farms, here's a must-have cookbook bursting with delicious recipes from celebrities, from Peter Jackson to Dan Carter and Ray McVinnie to John Key, all in support of the Royal NZ SPCA Blue Tick scheme. Many people love animals and care about their welfare, and celebrities are no different. A wide range of well-known people, from sports stars and politicians to TV and radio personalities and several high-profile chefs, have gladly donated their favourite recipes to this book, to support the SPCA. The delicious recipes are mostly simple everyday ones that use Blue Tick approved chicken, eggs, pork, bacon, ham, turkey or salmon. Most people want to think the meat and eggs they buy have been produced in a humane way. We want the animals from which these products come to have been healthy, comfortable and properly fed. The Blue Tick auditing programme takes the guesswork out of choosing products from the supermarket shelves. The Blue Tick scheme works towards getting animals out of cages, putting them in environments where they are able to express their natural behaviours, and ensuring that they have access to all the care they need. All royalties from this book go to the Royal New Zealand SPCA.
