Out now, this book is beautifully presented. Earl Carter the photographer has such a distinct style that really suits this masculine style of cooking. I've never been to the restaurant in Melbourne, so I can't say if it is indicative of the style of restaurant but you do get a sense of what the restaurant is like through the photos of people eating inside.
While this kind of cookbook is really a coffee table book, one to be admired. I find its not the kind of book I would cook from in my kitchen. I'm intrigued by recipes like coconut rice with fresh mango and caramelised orange syrup, or organic carrots with almond cream and harissa.
It seems to me a lovely fusion of flavours spanning the middle east to Italy and modern Australian. I always love to see this mixture of heritage on plate.
A photographer since 1993, started shooting food in 2006 for Good Living in The Sydney Morning Herald while as a staff photographer and loved it! Now freelancing as a food photographer, I wanted to extended my passion for food. I started with a friend, a fruit and vegetable co-op in 2008 and wanted to share recipes with all our friends in the group. It grew from only recipes to restaurant reviews, and anything related. Please enjoy and look forward to your responses.
