Ruby’s Treasure

by Liz Agnew

"Ruby's Treasure" is a unique blend of food, history and art combining delicious strawberry recipes, interesting histories and stunning handmade collages.  Disappointed to see local strawberry farms surrendering to property development, Liz Agnew was inspired to research the humble strawberry, celebrate its importance and raise appreciation not only of its taste but its symbolism throughout the world. There is something for everyone in this rare book which makes a great gift.


Ruby’s Treasure is filled only with strawberry recipes that are delicious, relatively simple and accompanied by a slice of strawberry trivia. It is my hope that these will inspire a large amount of cooking, curiosity and interesting conversation for all strawberry lovers. Step by step methods instantly show how simple a recipe is and the shopping list will ensure that your pantry is ready for your next strawberry picking expedition. The illustrations are composed from old catalogues and magazines and reflect the strawberry in its cultural context. Why not have some fun spotting all the things that start with “S” if you’re cooking with company in the kitchen!
