Following her passion for food and inspired by her Gran, Natalie opened Dulcie May Kitchen in 2009 in Mount Eden which won ‘Best Cake Shop’ in Metro magazine that year and in 2010 was voted one of the ‘Top 50 Café’ and awarded ‘Best Pressed Sandwiches’ in Metro magazine.
Natalie presents her own cookbook, Dulcie May Kitchen: Everyday: a visual celebration of everyday, fuss-free dishes with a modern twist.
From breakfast to light lunch and beyond, these simple, tasty dishes are among those favourites prepared and served everyday by Natalie and her family in their food store and at home. The recipes offer a fresh look at how to eat well every day, in the signature Dulcie May Kitchen style.
Dulcie May Kitchen Everyday includes delicious classics such as roast beef with red wine sauce and vegetables, carrot cake with cream cheese icing, as well as modern dishes such as spinach and mushroom roulade and pork and herb terrine.
With soups to share, sumptuous loaves, simple recipes for children and nutritious yet elegant suppers, Natalie hopes Dulcie May Kitchen Everyday inspires readers to make these easy-to-prepare meals with and for family and friends, and to relish those moments of happiness and celebration that go hand-in-hand.
