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.

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.
