Their deep love for the land and its people is interwoven with inspirings tores, poems and 75 recipes including closely guarded family secrets.
The Twins' diverse appeal is reflected in the people they meet: from free-range pig farms in the deep rural south to urban taco-trucking hipsters. As they travel aroundNew Zealand they discover a land full of top tucker and great yarns.
The Twins' comedy characters, Camp Mother and Camp Leader, present Saucy Tips, while the Bowling Ladies share recipes and tips for their retro but ever-popular Tasty Treats. Rural blokes, the Kens, have penned poems celebrating the country lifestyle and what it means to be a Kiwi, in love with our land and its bounty.
