    The Cellar Bar, a Melbourne institution since the 1950s, has always been synonymous with Italian dining. The place where many had their first mouthful of spaghetti bolognese, it's long been the meeting point for Melbourne society and one of the reasons dining out has woven itself into the fabric of this wonderful city.

    The Cellar Bar is a place that is always the same in the best kind of way. It's a place where you can go for a comforting favourite dish or something new. You can go anytime, eat anything. There are no rules and everybody is welcome. The produce is always the best, made with love by some of the city's finest chefs. Its dark, warm and burnished interior is cosy and relaxed.

    As Guy says, 'The aim of the food is not to just have you leave feeling full, but it's also to have you feel fulfilled.' Now you can take this feeling home and nourish your friends and family with 80 simple, delicious, authentic Italian recipes.

    In Food Safari Elements: Earth, Fire, Water Maeve O'Meara invites you on a journey around the world of cuisines, meeting home cooks and chefs from Asia, Europe, the Americas and the Middle East who are all passionate advocates of cooking with the best and most natural produce they can get.

    ISBN: 9781925418446
    Publication date: 01/11/2018

    A follow up to The Vegetable, published in late 2017, this title shows how seasonal fruit can enhance savoury and sweet dishes.

    We often associate fruit in recipes with jams, cakes and puddings – but fruit can be an incredible complement to savoury dishes too. Adding blackberries to a duck breast and chard recipe or caramelised pears to a pork and sage recipe can create an amazing dish. This book shows you how to make the most of out the fruit that’s in season – whether the dishes are sweet or savoury.

    The seasonal arrangement of the recipes and the use of a wide array of fruit varieties, supplemented by citrus and dried fruits, make this book a kitchen staple that promises to be used again and again. The more than 70 recipes in the book include Roast pork with apples, Tagliatelle with mushrooms and blackberries and Chicken with balsamic cherries and cauliflower cream.

    Publication date: 01/11/2018

    The fraternal twin of Special Delivery - a cookbook for anyone who ever felt like punching a wall before their guests arrive

    If you are someone who prepares for guests by sweeping bills, laundry and newspapers behind sofa cushions, take heart! It's possible to be an imperfect host, but happily so. The essential ingredient is not, paradoxically, the food, nor the perfect house to host in, but the sentiment you convey when you open the door. Do your eyes say: 'I like you and I enjoy your company,' or does a weepy cloud of visceral horror descend as pine nuts burn quietly in the kitchen?

    Special Guest is a gentle guide to turning easy basic fare into something of a celebration. For when you want to say to your friends with their spouses and ten small children, 'Why don't you stay for lunch?' without hating yourself afterwards. Learn the lesson of 'one splendid thing done well' without regard to the hundred other things, and call the day a success. Pick up some pointers for the modern conundrum that is cooking for people with seemingly incompatible dietary requirements.

    Hosting your friends is not about showing off; it is about delighting others. Your dining table might be decorated with a pile of unmatched socks and kids' homework, but that's no reason not to invite friends in for a chat, a sit-down and something delicious to eat.

    Annabel Crabb is one of Australia's best-loved TV and media personalities and a joyfully imperfect host. Wendy Sharpe is Annabel's oldest friend, a recipe consultant on Kitchen Cabinet and co-conspirator in mad-capped cookery projects.
