A favourite, indulgent dish makes the perfect gift to make and take when visiting loved ones

Annabel Crabb is an Australian political journalist who also hosts a TV programme called Kitchen Cabinet, where she negotiates her way into the homes of politicians, bringing dessert – the culinary code for ‘I come in peace’. Food is a means of communication, as she says in her new book Special Delivery, ‘the best things ever said by food are conveyed in quiet tones, between friends and family. It’s “I care enough about you to spend a bit of time making something delicious”.’ Special Delivery is co-authored by Crabb’s friend Wendy Sharpe who says that she learnt from Crabb that ‘cooking is not just about servicing one’s own love of tasty food… the fun part can be the thrill of giving, of helping, of sharing. And of connecting.’

The recipes in the book are ideal for this season of giving, when maybe the perfect gift for the person who appears to have everything is something uniquely thoughtful, indulgent and delicious – something you’ve made yourself with love.


Although best eaten warm, these cinnamon buns are good for a few hours after baking. Carry in a basket (so the warm buns don’t steam and become soggy) and cover with a clean tea towel to keep fresh en route.
