The importance of the humble Anzac Biscuit should never be underestimated. It is steeped in Tradition and is part of our National Heritage and Identity.

Everyone has their favourite recipe – mine was always my tried and true original Edmond’s recipe and it is always a crowd pleaser.

Coming home from the Dawn Service and popping a fresh batch of Anzac bickies in to the oven is, to me, part of the Anzac tradition. No one likes a soggy Anzac biscuit.  You may dunk one so that it becomes less defiant, but it must never be limp and soggy when it sits on your plate.

My very first Dawn Service was at St Faith’s Church at Ohinemutu in Rotorua. The steam was rising out of the tombs at the lakeside cemetery as the sun rose over Lake Rotorua. In the Church, the glass window showed Christ walking on water. He is portrayed wearing a traditional Maori Cloak and it was as if he was walking from Hinemoa Island to Ohinemutu.
