The Real McHugh

Lifestyle/cook book by Margaret McHugh

We have been eating our way through ‘M McH’s journey to your palate’ … what fun we are having!  It is fabulously familiar in many many ways and yet so much more… we are taken with your can do attitude. It leaves little room for anything except our ear to ear smiles with each adventure and well deserved memories of whitebait, sweet mince tarts and boiled fruitcake ….
Lesley and Carol

My food journey from Southland, NZ to the World and back again, through 700 recipes & 400 pages.

Follow the life story of Margaret McHugh, a daughter of a dairy farmer from Winton, New Zealand, as she sets off for London in the fabulous 70’s and then makes her way around Europe and the rest of the world. The highs and lows; the ups and downs.

 A renowned chef and caterer, Margaret brings to life her adventures as well as passing on the tips and recipes learnt at the tables of real world cooks. From Spanakoptia in Athens during the military coup to Korean Seafood pancakes in Busan. Her journeys through the Oktober Fest in Munich, the Moscow underground and the Suez Canal. Margaret gives insights into how to cook real food, with real ingredients. No additives, no preservatives. Something for everyone, be they meat eaters, vegetarian, vegan, gluten or dairy free.

With over 700 recipes, there is something for everyone. A starter, a main or a dessert. A plate to share or a dinner to prepare. The Real McHugh.
