Voted #95 Best Restaurants of the World 2017 Capturing the essence of world-renowned chef Peter Gilmore's food: nature, texture, intensity, purity.
While there is a layered complexity to world-renowned chef Peter Gilmore's ethereal - yet grounded - cuisine, his philosophy of cooking is relatively simple. Just four elements are required to create perfect unison in a dish: nature, texture, intensity and purity...In this book, Peter invites the reader to share in his private obsession with nature - when not in the kitchen at Sydney's Quay restaurant, he is working in his experimental garden where he grows a huge array of edible plant species. Each component of a plant, from sweet, earthy roots to bitter fronds and fragrant blossoms, is potentially destined for inclusion in one of the 40 exquisite dishes featured here. Peter also introduces us to the many influences on his cooking, and to the people who grow, catch and source key ingredients. Images include intensely beautiful food and ingredient shots, as well as producers and produce photographed on location.
Peter Gilmore is executive chef of the three-hatted Quay restaurant in Sydney, which appeared on the S. Pellegrino World's 50 Best Restaurants list for five years in a row. Peter's first cookbook, Quay: Food Inspired by Nature, published in 2010, showcased his nature-based cuisine, organic presentation and the fine dining experience at Quay. He is also executive chef at Bennelong restaurant at the The Sydney Opera House.

Publication Date: Late October 2016 "Ottolenghi changed the way we cook in this country just as surely and enduringly as Elizabeth David's A Book of Mediterranean Food had in 1950.

Australians are beginning to change the way they eat – from an interest in local produce to an awareness of the impact that meat has on their health and on the planet – and Matthew Evans is here to help. For the Love of Meat is a book inspired by the SBS documentary of the same name (screening October). Its mission is to encourage people to think differently about the protein they consume - including how much, where it comes from, and how sustainable it is. Along with chefs from all over Australia, author and host Matthew Evans of Gourmet Farmer fame has created dinner recipes that reframe the role of meat in our diet – helping Australians make the most of the meat they buy and teaching them the best-value and most ethical ways to consume it. With informative 500-word breakouts that explore the subject in more depth as well as recipes from a host of favourite chefs from across the country, For the Love of Meat will start a new conversation in Australian homes about food, agriculture and sustainability without compromising on eating well every day.
For the Love of Meat is a book inspired by the SBS television documentary of the same name (screening for three weeks from October 20, 2016). It's a conversation starter - designed to prompt people to think differently about both the sources of the meat they consume - as well as how much. It is not a blueprint for vegetarianism - rather it is a start point for people to think differently about the role of protein in their everyday meals.

For anyone interested in a healthier, lighter alternative to traditional French cuisine, this collection of simple, easy French recipes focuses on organic, locally sourced, and sustainable ingredients.
Alain Ducasse’s Nature series of cookbooks makes eating healthfully on a daily basis both simple and pleasurable. Ducasse dispels the idea that French food is defined by complicated techniques, time- consuming recipes, and loads of butter and cream. Along with nutritionist Paule Neyrat and chef Christophe Saintagne, he shows how going back to basics means rediscovering the pleasures of sustainable, seasonal French food with maximum nutrition and flavor.
The recipes are first and foremost delicious, but they are also healthy and respectful of natural resources and stress sustainable practices—which is why animal protein is de-emphasized (as well as salt and sugar, too) in favor of more vegetables, more legumes, and more grains, leaving meat and fish to be used sparingly—if at all, as many of the recipes are vegetarian—for flavor.
This volume takes a more holistic approach to mealtime and includes tips and ideas for reusing leftovers and reducing waste.

How often have you wished there was a magic formula to make cooking easier? Well, there is. Put just three good things together on a plate and, somehow, the whole is always greater and more delicious than the sum of its parts. Looking back over nearly two decades of professional cookery, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall has worked out the winning combinations. Salty, sweet, crunchy. Sharp, rich, crumbly. Hot, bland, crisp. Think scones with jam and cream, fish and chips with mushy peas, or porridge with golden syrup and cream.
Hugh has used this simple formula to create more than 175 inspiring recipes, both well-loved classics and brand new ideas, based on trios like squash, ricotta and ham; aubergine, tomatoes and chickpeas; clams, tomatoes and garlic; chicken, tomatoes and tarragon; pork, potatoes and apples; pasta, courgettes and mozzarella; strawberries, cream and shortbread; and chocolate, ginger and digestives ... The list goes on.
With sumptuous photography from Simon Wheeler, this book will unlock a whole new world of fantastic food. Easy cooking with three delicious ingredients. It really is that simple.
