    I love cookbooks and found this at my library. What I discovered was that it was s history book as well. This was a really enjoyable study over hundreds of years showing how fruit cakes evolved and the historical influences on the recipes. Very interesting historical read, especially when focused on New Zealand colonial history. Great recipes as well.

    A very interesting book tracing the history of the Christmas Cake from the 1600's to today. Gives many tasty recipes as it goes.
