NZ Rugby Stars Cookbook (Allen & Unwin NZ, RRP $40) showcases a selection of favourite recipes from current All Blacks players, retired heroes, as well as players from the Black Ferns, the Sevens and the Wheel Blacks.
The recipes are modern and family-friendly, reflecting the diversity of the players, while painting a portrait on how they enjoy their time off the field and away from the spotlight; preparing favourite meals for loved ones.
All royalties from cookbook sales go to the NZ Rugby Foundation, a charity which supports catastrophically injured rugby players both emotionally and financially, while also communicating key safety messages.
AA Directions has five copies of NZ Rugby Stars Cookbook to give away. Enter your details before December 7, 2018 to be in to win and impress your friends and family with wholesome meals this summer.
