Community Facebook group Lazy Susan has been sharing hot tips on Auckland's food scene since 2018, allowing its dedicated 7500+ following to unearth hidden gems around the city, discuss where to find the best xiao long bao and showcase favourite menu items.

Moderators Antony Suvalko and Anna King Shahab started the page as a place to share genuine knowledge, but also to celebrate the diversity in Auckland's food scene. Taking that purpose one step further, the pair is now pulling together a dedicated recipe book so you can recreate top local dishes in your own kitchen.

'Auckland Eats: Recipes and Voices from a Vibrant Food City' has been in mind since the group started to really take off in numbers, however it was paused when the COVID-19 pandemic kicked off. Now back on the table, the recipe book is all about highlighting cult dishes that are "intrinsic to the city from all manner of cuisines and styles of eatery," as well as telling some of the stories behind those dishes and the people who make them.

More than 40 recipes will feature in the book. A selection of those currently confirmed include Eden Noodles' dumplings in spicy sauce, Satya's chicken 65, Coco's Cantina's polenta fries, Ramen Takara's tan tan ramen, Cassia's Goan lamb chops, Apero's roasted cauliflower, One8Tea's pearl milk tea, and Depot's fish sliders.

Preorders for the first 500 copies are currently available at the special price of $25 — purchasers will also get their name printed in the book as a thanks for their early support. The publication date is set for February/March, 2021.
