Description
Interview with Tui Flower, born in Matamata in 1925. Interviewer's summary: Tui Flower was born in Matamata and grew up there and in Tauranga. She studied Home Science at the University of Otago and worked as a Home Science teacher at Pukekohe High School. During this time she spent a year in the United States and a year in France, both experiences influencing her interest in, and practice of, cookery. She then worked as a home economist for Lever Brothers in Wellington, one of the few home economists employed in industry at this time, before spending 23 years as the cookery editor at the New Zealand Woman's Weekly. In the interview she talks about the influence of her grandparents and parents on her life, particularly on her interest in cookery, and talks about her time in the United States and at the hotel school in Paris (Ecole Hoteliere de Jean Drouat, Paris, 1954-55). Ms Flower also talks about her time with Lever Brothers and at the Woman's Weekly, what her role was with both organizations and how she tried to fulfil that role.
