11:07 The Mixtape

Resaurateur Al Brown grew up in rural New Zealand. He's a keen fisherman, loves Aotearoa's great outdoors and despite owning several of the city's trendiest eateries, he tends to refer to Aucklanders as "city slickers". His cook books and restaurants reflect his love of what New Zealand has to offer in terms of land and sea.
