- All Day Cafe Make Cafe-Style Food At HomeISBN: 9781743368404
Publication date: 01/03/2017
South of Johnston (or SoJo, as it's more affectionately known) is a fixture on the brunch circuit of Melbourne foodies.
Sojo has resident bees, fruit trees, herbs and a worm farm too and its food showcases the fruits of the local providores. The Fitzroy cafe is Manhattan meets Melbourne, an artfully converted warehouse with a long airy dining room with communal tables, with an industrial chic edge.
On the menu are brunchy, lunchy recipes for breakfast; pide stuffed with chorizo, egg and spinach, and indulgent brioche French toast with caramelised bananas and ice cream. This is eminently cookable sharable food and easily achieved at home.
A blend of food and lifestyle, the book's content reflects the casual and creative mood of the cafe, with its vintage/industrial look and its locality, a buzzy street in a northerly suburb of Melbourne. The cafe context, as a place where people meet to catch up, do business, relax and work - the cafe as the modern living room where friends meet, eat, talk, relax.
The food is seasonal and produce is sourced locally from trusted providores, so in spring and summer the recipes are bursting with fresh fruits, vegetables and salads and cooling dishes; in winter, the soups and risottos are warming, the porridge creamy with seasonal fruits, the eggs spiced with warming chorizo and truffle oil.
After running some of Melbourne's most successful cafes and restaurants Stuart McKenzie decided to concentrate on being his own boss. He put himself into the marketplace of good food and design and South of Johnston, on Collingwood's Johnston Street, parallel to Smith Street, was born. South of Johnston soon became known as Sojo in the neighbourhood and this reflects the casual and familiar feel the cafe exudes. In 2007 he and his partner opened Harts Lane HAUS and Stag & Millies accommodation in the central highlands region of Victoria. Located in the heart of the Daylesford spa country, the properties give a great lifestyle blend of inner city and country living. Stuart plans to open a produce store in 2016 just around the corner from Sojo, on the corner of Peel and Oxford Street, in Collingwood.

Publication date: 26/08/2015
Kate McGhie is a farmer's daughter, born into seven generations of a family who worked and respected the land. Their farm in rural Victoria produced everything they ate. There were dairy and beef cattle, sheep and goats; the vegetable garden was huge; and the potato patch filled two acres with five different varieties. The orchard was shared: the lower third for possums, the top third for birds and the middle section for Kate's family - everyone was happy.In this book - with over 120 recipes and stories from her family's farm - Kate McGhie writes with wit and warmth as she explores the foundations and flavours of Australian country cooking, drawing on tradition to present classic, tried and true dishes as well as contemporary interpretations for today's table.Chapters include salads; soups and starters; vegetables; meat, poultry and fish; fruit; baking; preserving; and cooking for Christmas.
Biographical note She could bake a cake long before she learned to ride a horse, snatch a chicken before she tasted p te, shin up an apple tree before she'd even heard of Adam and Eve.Kate McGhie is a qualified chef and one of Australia's most respected food writers and personalities. She is the author of Cook, a much lauded title that won the coveted Australian Food Media Club award for Best Australian Cook Book (2006). Her popular Herald Sun column, published for over thirty years, now reaches some 1.5 million people every week.Growing up on a farm in Victoria's Western District, her culinary and personal inspiration has always been seasonal produce and the family and rural community of her childhood. Perched at the kitchen table, she absorbed the daily ritual and importance of food: watching her mother and grandmother cook and serve up meals (three a day, plus morning and afternoon teas) and preserve the garden's bounty with the innate wisdom and confidence of those who understand and respect the rhythms of nature.

- Bacon Jam Cookbook Its A Proper Pig-Out (Eat 17)ISBN: 9781472137241
Publication date: 29/11/2016
Eat 17 is a small, independently-owned and much-loved group of eateries and convenience stores based in east London. It was started by James Brundle and Chris O'Connor, two brothers in their early twenties, who, with only £5,000, transformed a run-down off-license in Walthamstow into a multi-million-pound retail revolution and world-class brand.
Eat 17's two shops are London fixtures, and the brothers recently took out a lease on a third site. Eat 17 has also recently started selling to a supermarket chain in Hong Kong and on mainland China.
The Bacon Jam Cookbook, as well as providing many recipes from Eat 17 and their suppliers, also describes what the brothers have achieved and how.
It is also, incidentally, a paean to bacon - (just about) everyone's favourite foodstuff.
