About the Author

Aucklander David Veart is a DoC Historian and Archaeologist and an expert in the history of North Head, Mangere Mountain and islands of the Hauraki Gulf who regularly conducts public guided walks of, particularly, the forts of North Head. He has written scripts and narrated interpretative films exploring the history of some of those places. A member of the Auckland Heritage Committee of the Institute of Professional Engineers, he is also, somewhat unexpectedly, an expert in New Zealand's culinary history and a lover of cooking and recipes. He owns a large collection of cook books and has presented at conferences on aspects of culinary history.
