Otago Polytechnic

There's a sprinkling of Otago Polytechnic within the pages of a new recipe book.

Mark Cross trained as a chef at Otago Polytechnic, then spent years overseas before returning to Dunedin where, eventually, he set up his dessert and pastry business, The Tart Tin.

Mark is a regular at the Otago Farmers' Market where, on Saturday mornings, he sells (and sells out) his sweet delights from a caravan named Minty.

Such has been his popularity, publisher Potton & Burton commissioned Mark to write a book, The Tart Tin, in which he has devulged many of his secrets.

Mark's editorial adventures have been augmented by the vibrant images of Dunedin-based Isabella Harrex, a former Otago Polytechnic photographer and Dunedin School of Art graduate whose work is featured in Cuisine, North & South, Dish and Next magazines, among others.
