    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.

    We all eat with our eyes, and amazing-tasting food isn' t just about ingredients - i' s about anticipation too. Why serve your friends houmous from a plastic tub when a pretty bowl plus a drizzle of olive oil will make it look ten times more appetising?
    Welcome to the world of food stylin' . For Frankie Unsworth, food styling is both an obsession and a profession, and with years of experience behind the scenes on photography shoots, she knows exactly how to make food look good. Her approach begins with produce; rule number one is to always buy fruit and veg in season so i' s colourful and flourishing, as well as tasty. Next, start collecting dishes that will show off your cooking to the best effect (a large white platter will make the most of colourful summer salads, while cosy little bowls are good for winter soups). And finally, take a moment to think about serving your food in a beautiful way! Simple techniques - such as tearing lettuce leaves instead of chopping them, or picking out the tiniest leaves at the top of a sprig of basil to make instant micro-herb' - can make a stunning difference.
