  • Adriatico
    ISBN: 9781925418729
    Publication date: 01/09/2018

    The food of Italy's eastern coastline mirrors the memories and traditions of peoples past and present who have lived on the shores of the Adriatic, with ingredients reflecting the climate and terrain - of course with seafood in abundance, as well as an array of incredible pasta, rice, polenta and meat dishes.

    The Adriatic coastline runs from the heel of the boot-shaped peninsula at the Ionian Sea, through Puglia and Venice, to the northern waters of the Gulf of Trieste on the border with Slovenia. Along its length are rugged rocky coast lInes, sandy stretches of beach, lagoons and wetlands. Spindly wooden fishing piers, white washed walls, colourful villages and sea-facing piazzas dot the 1,200-kilometre coastline with a rich history touched by Etruscan, Greek, Roman, Venetian and Austrian populations.

    Join Paola on this beautiful journey where she travels the length of this relatively unexplored coastline, to find ancient food traditions still thriving.

    Dispatches You and I Eat the Same (Mad Dispatches Vol. 1)
    ISBN: 9781579658403
    Publication date: 01/09/2018

    Dispatches is the inspired and ambitious collaboration between MAD, the international nonprofit organisation founded by René Redzepi, the chef and co-owner of Noma, and Lucky Peach cofounder and editor in chief Chris Ying. Each edition of this new series of single-subject books will encourage readers to think about food in new ways and take action to make food better. Each book will unpack a single urgent and interesting topic, from the history of creative cooking to farming in a world changed by global warming.

    The first book—You and I Eat the Same: On the Countless Ways Food and Cooking Connect Us to One Another—proposes that immigration is fundamental to cuisine, and that good food is the common ground between different cultures. The book comprises long-form writing about the ways in which immigration has shaped food, and shorter features that point to our similarities, including the many ways we wrap meat in flatbreads, a basic primer on fire, and a catalog of all the species of animals that we eat. Dispatches is poised to take all our ideas about food to the next level.

    Farm Community
    ISBN: 9781743794661
    Publication date: 01/09/2018

    This is the story of a family wanting to live a simpler life and a farm built with the involvement of the local community. The Farm at Byron Bay has since become a diverse community of its own, made up of organic growers, chefs, bakers – all connected by the common values of simplicity, sustainability and farm-fresh food.

    The Farm Community is for anyone who craves connection: connection with where food comes from and connection with community. Alongside tales of the people who have helped to make The Farm what
    it is today, you will find simple steps to living more sustainably, whether in the city, the suburbs or the countryside. The book includes rewarding projects like making your own compost bucket, companion planting and drying flowers, as well as recipes collected from across The Farm’s community, celebrating a shared love of growing and cooking.

    Emma and Tom Lane once led big-city lives in fast-paced jobs in the advertising and fashion industries. They traded it in to establish The Farm in Byron Bay, to create a different life for themselves and their four children, where they could understand where their food comes from, develop a love of the land and be a part of a real community.

  • From the Earth
    From the Earth
    ISBN: 9781743793480
    Publication date: 01/09/2018

    Publication: September 2018
    From the Earth is a celebration of 50 unique and exotic heirloom vegetables and plants through the seasons. Some the author grows himself in his experimental garden on Sydney’s northern beaches, while others come from suppliers he has developed close and lasting relationships with over his 15 years as executive chef at Quay.

    The book includes botanical illustrations, as well as full-colour photography by Brett Stevens, as well as key information about each vegetable (family group; history and origin; traditional cooking uses; growing conditions; anecdotal stories; and why the author loves them!) and a recipe inspired by the vegetable.

    The recipes range from simple – about the cooking technique with little adornment – to more complex dishes that may feature at Peter's restaurants Bennelong or Quay. All are approachable and achievable in the home kitchen, but in some cases assume a level of competency. The key, always, is celebrating the organic beauty of the vegetables and allowing them to shine. In the chef's words: 'Simplicity is key, with a little bit of complexity thrown in'.

    Recipes include Fried puntarelle chicory, Kyoto red carrot salad (sheep’s milk feta, smoked almond, sherry caramel), Slow braised roveja peas (fermented mushroom and black garlic purée) and Slow cooked galeux d’ eysines pumpkin (aged comte cream, truffle).

    In addition, the book profiles, in words and pictures, chef Gilmore's home garden and the evolution of his now abiding passion for it, as well as five of his most loyal growers and seed suppliers.
