One Continuous Picnic: a gastonomic history of Australia

Author: Michael Symons, foreword by Gay Bilson

Publisher: Melbourne University Press

RRP: $32.95

This intriguing, contentious but ultimately indispensable history of why we eat the way we eat and how we came to eat that way has been reprinted by Melbourne University Press with a foreword by Gay Bilson.


Wild Weed Pie

Author: Janni Kyritsis (with Roberta Muir)

Publisher: Lantern Hardback

RRP: $55.95

It's not one of those take-300g-of-truffles books. Anyone with moderate kitchen skills can make the recipes Janni lays out.


Piri Piri Starfish

Author: Tessa Kiros

Publisher: Murdoch Books

Just when you think the cookbooks from this publisher couldn't be more beautifully designed, along comes another one to knock your socks off: stunning typography, gorgeous photographs and classy


Secrets of the Red Lantern

Author: Pauline Nguyen

Publisher: Murdoch Books

RRP: $59.95

In what is simply one of the most beautiful cookbooks (oh, but it's so much more) we've seen in years, author Pauline Nguyen doesn't hold back.


Movida: Spanish Culinary Adventures

Author: Frank Camorra & Richard Cornish

Publisher: Murdoch Books

RRP: $45.00

n a category not noted for good books - Spanish cooking - this is a very fine book indeed. What is for me, a Spanish food tragic, most exceptional about Camorra's book is that he has got the atmosphere right.
