Join baking expert Natalie Oldfield for a delightful high tea and learn a few tips from Natalie as she demonstrates recipes from her new book, Gran's Sweet Pantry. Tickets $25 and available from Ballantynes.

For Natalie Oldfield, food and cooking has always been a part of her life, but her love affair really began with baking.

Her earliest memories of baking stem from her Gran’s - Dulcie May - sweet pantry. To Natalie, her Gran’s sweet pantry ‘was nothing less than spectacular and like nothing else I have seen since.' Always excited by what she might find, the pantry could contain anything from a batch of scones to a freshly baked cake or a tray of slice.

Gran's Sweet Pantry is a collection of the best recipes from Dulcie May. Continuing the home cook's tradition of sharing recipes, tucked in with Dulcie’s recipes are favourites from family and friends, some old, some new.

Natalie Oldfield’s love for food and people meant she spent her formative years in the hospitality industry. It was during this time that her entrepreneurial endeavours led her to establish several corporate cafés and function venues, and eventually, as a tribute to her grandmother, she opened Dulcie May Kitchen.

Dulcie May Kitchen, which was opened in 2009 in Mount Eden, won ‘Best Cake Shop’ in Metro magazine that year and in 2010 was voted one of the ‘Top 50 Cafés.'
