by Bill Granger
“There is no one in the world more qualified to talk about Australian food than Bill Granger. And that is exactly the subject of the man who founded the Bill’s cafe and restaurant empire’s latest book: everything that is good and great about food Down Under. Some of his most beloved recipes are collected in this tome–including Granger’s famous ricotta hotcakes and poached eggs with avocado on toast–which is an ode to our very laidback Australian way of cooking and eating. This is the perfect gift for brunch lovers or a homesick pal, but it’s also a must-have in the kitchen of all local home cooks.”
by Bryant Terry
“A visual and spiritual feast that will satisfy any soul. To say Bryant Terry’s Black Food is ‘just a cookbook’ would be an understatement. From traditional delicious African recipes, heartfelt poetry, incredibly insightful essays and evocative artworks, Terry has sourced works across the globe from over 100 Black luminaries to bring you a book that joyously celebrates all parts of Black culture. Black Food also comes with a carefully curated playlist to further enliven the senses – so turn it on, and get cooking.”
by Amber Guinness
“What could be more enchanting than a multisensory experience under the Tuscan sun? A House Party in Tuscany provides a stunning depiction of Amber Guinness’ Arniano Painting School – its beauty, its magic, and its evocative fusion of food and art. Serving as an artists’ retreat for 30 years, this creative hub inspires every inch of the book, from the captivating imagery to the sumptuous recipes and its air of reminiscence. Prepare to breathe new life into your home and your table, with notes from the Tuscan countryside.”
“Hailed as the most successful Italian cookbook of all time, The Silver Spoon was first published in 1950 and remains one of Italy’s most popular wedding gifts today. The original features over 2,000 recipes but this, The Silver Spoon Classic, includes an admittedly more manageable 170 – selecting only the very best traditional home-cooking dishes from Italy’s diverse regions. With an elegant cover and double ribbons for easy reference, The Silver Spoon Classic is a gorgeous wedding, engagement, or housewarming gift.”
by Tim Anderson
“This cookbook is an introduction to the wonderful world of Japanese cooking, written by chef Tim Anderson, a true fan of the country’s cuisine. With his easy-to-follow recipes and handy tips, Anderson shows readers how they can introduce delicious Japanese food into their at-home cooking routines. These are recipes that you’ll want to make time and time again, hearty, tasty and mouthwateringly good, using the seven essential ingredients that Anderson swears by: soy sauce, mirin, rice vinegar, dashi, sake, miso and rice. That’s all you’ll need to master Japanese food at home.”
