    Australia's bestselling cookbook author returns with a stunning new book, Basics to Brilliance - and a TV series tie in. Australia's most trusted and best-selling cookbook author, Donna Hay, wants to take you from basics to brilliance. Donna believes that, just like anything you want to be good at, mastering the basics is how you build confidence. So, in this book, she's sharing all her favourite, tried and true recipes - think the perfect tender steak, golden roast chicken, crispy pork belly, her nan's sponge cake, and of course the fudgiest brownies! Each basic recipe is followed by clever variations and simple flavour change-ups, so one recipe becomes many and your repertoire naturally grows. Take Donna's 'no-fail meringue mixture' - once mastered, this basic recipe can be tweaked to be turned into the perfect pavlova; divinely flavoured salted caramel, chocolate, rosewater and pistachio, and raspberry meringues for an elegant afternoon tea; or a silky smooth and tangy lemon meringue pie for a divine dessert for a dinner party. This is your ultimate guide to being brilliant in the kitchen! Basics to Brilliance is a luxurious hardback, featuring beautiful photography and featuring over 200 recipes. This is a book you will want to treasure forever. In 2011, Donna's first television series - fast, fresh, simple - premiered on LifeStyle, garnering her a 2012 Astra award for Best New Female Personality and went on to air in more than 17 countries worldwide. In 2016 , Donna is returning to Foxtel with a brand new eight part show, Basics to Brilliance, based on this book, which will go to air in late May and be on repeat rotation as the book goes on sale.

    For Natalie Paull, baking is a gift. It’s also a powerful elixir of pleasure, connection, generosity and joy. In Beatrix Bakes, Natalie indulges in baking’s sweetest moments with more than seventy recipes inspiring bakers of all kinds to mix and match to make recipes their own – whether it’s a Lemon curd cream crepe cake or Pecan maple cinnamon scrolls.

    Sparkling with Natalie's distinct voice, and packaged with full-colour photography, illustrations and rock-solid tips for a perfect bake, Beatrix Bakes also includes 'Adaptrix' suggestions (offering ways readers might do things differently, including short cuts) and is peppered with infographics to help them follow their baking heart. Try The Cheesecake (That You Will Love The Most) with a crumb base, or a bought biscuit base, or no base, or a sponge base, or even a failed cookie base! And from there, pick a topping from sour cream, to crumb, to fruity bits. The recipes are divided across eight chapters: Doughs, pastries & crusts; Tarts, pies, a crostata & a galette; The cake list; One in the hand; Yeasted bakes; Fruit-full; Creams, custards, fillings, glazes and buttercreams; and Finishing touches.

    While Natalie's creations are inspired by classics the world over, they are irreverent too, and in Beatrix Bakes she delights in showing readers that – once they get the foundations right – the truest magic will come from a willingness to play (with the insurance of her many clever ideas and back-up plans in their apron pocket!).

    Beatrix Bakes will guide anyone who loves the adventure of baking to perfect their skills and break the baking mould.

He completed his apprenticeship at Tetsuya's and then spent seven years travelling, two of those years working as sous chef at Josef, a fine dining restaurant in Zurich. It was during what was supposed to be brief visit back to Sydney, that Mark and two of his close mates discussed the idea of opening a café with a difference. On a whim, they went to look at a run-down chicken shop in Bronte that had just come up for lease, and that day Three Blue Ducks was born.

    'Claudia Roden is no more a simple cookbook writer than Marcel Proust was a biscuit baker. She is, rather, memorialist, historian, ethnographer, anthropologist, essayist, poet... The Book of Jewish Food is her masterpiece (though the recipes are glorious), the richest and most sensuous encyclopedia of Jewish life ever set in print.'
    Simon Schama

    'One does not have to be Jewish to appreciate this book... buy it for the recipes... for couscous with orange pumpkins and raisins, Syrian stuffed fried kibbeh, chicken croquettes Burmese style, "the bride's pigeons" from Morocco, simple refreshing vegetable salads from the Mediterranean, and delicious northern European desserts and pastries.'
